jimmyCASE streamlines your gear
Being on the go means heavy reliance on your smartphone. Organizer and pay by smartphone apps have virtually made paper agendas and cash obsolete, but it’s always a good idea to keep a few 20’s with your driver’s license just in case.
jimmyCASE manufactures a lineup of clever iPhone card holders that virtually eliminate the need for a wallet or purse. These sturdy cases have a high impact bumper and real mahogany core offering the toughest protection from hazards the urban warrior would encounter.
The ingenuity lies in the ultra strong and stretchy band that holds cards and cash securely to the phone.
The iPhone 6 wallet case held a driver’s license, an ATM card, a credit card and 2 twenty dollar bills safely and was easily accessed by simply pushing up at the bottom of the band.
Urban warriors can easily streamline their equipment checklist with adoption of the jimmyCASE. Available for iPhones with various band colors and styles including custom options. From $35.
