Remember Wally? It is an attachable leather wallet for the iPhone 5 that came out earlier this year and was a real hit on Kickstarter. Now the team at Distil Union in beautiful Charleston, SC, have decided that they'd like to protect your iPhone 5 a bit more and today they're introducing the Wally Case for iPhone 5 (US$40 pre-order on Kickstarter).
What's different? The original Wally stuck to the back of your iPhone 5 with a nano-suction material, but didn't offer any protection to the sides of the phone. Wally Case takes a polycarbonate frame with a scratch-resistant coating, and then adds that luxurious Argentinian vegetable-tanned leather wallet with the convenient pull-tab that makes accessing your cards and cash so easy.
The Distil Union team sent me a Wally Case prototype to try out -- note that it uses a clear polycarbonate case while the actual production models will use either black or white polycarbonate. The leather comes in black or brown, and if the original Wally is any indication, it will get a nice patina over time that looks just great.
