If you are looking for an iPhone card case with a slim form factor, attractive design and beautiful leather, the Bellroy 3 Card may be the perfect case for you. It’s not particularly protective, but it looks gorgeous and feels fantastic in the hand. It has a capacity for 3 cards, split between two card slots. If you choose to carry cards, you must either carry one or three…two is not a possibility because the lower card storage slot is too wide for a single card and you run the risk of your card slipping out. If you choose to carry no cards, the leather card pockets take up almost no extra room and don’t look oddly empty, due to the design of the case. The 3 Card Case also features a small slot on the inside of the case for an extra sim card and storage for a bill or two tucked inside the case, under the phone, but in my experience, this is a less practical use of the case. The 3 Card Case is quite tight fitting and is rather difficult to remove, at least on the 6s Plus, and I can’t see frequent case removals to access sim cards and cash as being particularly enjoyable.
* Slim form factor.
* Nice card access design.
* Beautiful quality, full grain, vegetable tanned leather.
* Reasonable grip in the hand due to soft touch polycarbonate sides.
* Excellent fit and finish.
* Backed by Bellroy’s 3 year warranty.
* Rather difficult to remove from your iPhone. Makes use of sim card slot less practical than it otherwise would be.
* Not particularly protective in the event of a drop.
Conclusion: Crafted from full grain, vegetable tanned leather, the Bellroy 3 Card manages to carry 3 cards, a sim card, and a bill or two in a very slim form factor. It is a bit difficult to get off your phone, so it may not be the best choice for frequent case changers, but it is an attractive, slim card case that is a pleasure to use. Many thanks to Bellroy for providing this sample to me to review. Available in seven lovely colors, the 3 Card Case retails for $69.95, and is available from Bellroy and other retail sites.
