Hex has a solid contender in the leather wallet case space with its Icon Wallet for the iPhone 6/6 Plus. Thanks to the kind folks at Hex, I had the opportunity to test out their Hex Icon Wallet for the 6 Plus recently and I was quite impressed with its stylish appearance and capacious storage.
Many wallet cases are pretty skimpy with their storage capacity, only allowing two or three cards, but the Hex Icon Wallet for the iPhone 6 Plus gives you five card slots as well as two additional cash or receipt pockets tucked behind the card slot section. Stuffed full with cards in all five card slots and two cards in the cash/receipt pockets, the wallet still closed fine, albeit with the use of the elastic strap, which is very impressive:
The Hex Icon Wallet is crafted from premium genuine leather and feels quite well made. Typical of many leather products, it is a bit stiff to start with but is softening up with use. The texture is slightly pebbled, particularly on the orange accent leather on the spine of the wallet, which gives it a reasonably good grip. The phone cradle is made of a reinforced plastic with a soft-touch finish and fits tightly, giving quite a bit of side protection to your iPhone, although less to the top and bottom of the device. Getting your iPhone into the case is not difficult, although removal is a bit trickier due to the tight fit of the case.
One quibble that I have with this case is that when the elastic band is used to close the case, it covers the lightning port entirely. Perhaps Hex will address this small issue with future versions of the case. Overall, this is a very attractive leather case with excellent wallet functionality. If you are in the market for a leather wallet case for your 6 Plus, you should definitely add it to your list to consider. Available from various high end retailers such as Nordstrom and Brookstone, it is also available directly from Hex:
