Pad & Quill announce new iPhone 5/s Traveller soft leather case, inspired by old coin pouch

We’re huge fans of Pad & Quill so we’re excited to let you know that today the St. Paul, MN-based company announced some new wallets/cases for iPhone 5/s. Most notable is the $70 Traveller case [WANT] which will hold your iPhone and multiple cards in a pouch around back with a slider that helps eject your wares. We’ve noted before how much we like Pad and Quill’s rugged construction and genuine materials.

My dad had an old coin pouch that he carried everywhere with him and I have very good memories of that. We made this case inspired by his old coin pouch. It’s a tribute to my Dad and to the Craftsman. This is a VERY intricately hand assembled iPhone cover that includes a generous hidden back pocket for multiple Credit cards and ID. This is soft full grain luxury and rugged protection.

The Traveller comes in both Whiskey Brown and Onyx Black.

To accompany this new case, P&Q also just launched 3 new Pad & Quill Wallets made of the same luxury materials… Read more

Review: Pad & Quill’s Field Bag is designed for those who like nice things

The Field Bag | Zac Hall

For every bit that Apple gave pixel-drawn leather a bad reputation with apps like Find My Friends and the Lion-era OS X calendar, Pad & Quill restores your faith in the actual material. I’ve recently been using Pad & Quill’s Field Bag, a classy, vertically designed version of its leather Messenger Bag. Let’s cut to the chase: it’s a very, very nice bag. The kind of bag that makes you want to be a better person… or at least a better dresser. As the headline reads, Pad & Quill’s Field Bag is designed for those who like nice things. As a MacBook and iPhone user, like you I’m sure, I have an appreciation for quality products. Read on to see why this fits into that category…

Review: The nicest iPhone case I’ve ever used — Pad & Quill’s leather Luxury Pocket Book

Pad&Quill Luxury Pocket Book

If you’re looking for the best iPhone case ever made, look no further.

When it comes to iPhone cases I’ve tried just about all of them: Protective cases from companies like Otterbox, Lifeproof, and HardCandy, super-slim cases that add barely any bulk to the device, wallet cases for holding cash and cards, and just about everything in between. It’s true I’ve long preferred the look and feel of the naked iPhone in my hand opposed to a case, but I’ve now found a case that truly does the Jony Ive-designed hardware inside justice. It’s a case that’s converted me from one of those annoying blowhards constantly boasting about not using a case to someone that won’t leave home without it.

I’ve finally found the perfect case… Read more

Pad & Quill add handmade, Author Series cases for iPad Air

Pad & Quill, makers of our favorite high-end cases for iPhone, iPad, and MacBooks, have a new unique lineup of hand made iPad Air cases with lots of customization options.

The Author Series case for iPad Air is based around a satin finished wood base with ports cut out for connector access. The book-style exterior resembles a nice moleskin journal (you wouldn’t know the difference when it’s closed). The cover actually takes advantage of the iPad magnet system and puts the display to sleep when it’s closed just like Apple’s Smart Cover, but with more security and protection (and sophistication).
