Hi guys! I received a review sample of the Saddle Leather Folio case from Adopted recently and I wanted to post a quick review of it. In my opinion, this is an excellent leather folio case for the 6 Plus. The leather quality seems wonderful, the case is easy to get on and off, the folio cover is quite unobtrusive when folded to the back of the iPhone, and the case simply looks great. On the negative side, there is no closure mechanism, so the cover can simply open at will. However, this didn't particularly bother me much--the cover mostly stayed shut by itself. This is also not really a wallet case at all. It is branded as a folio case, and although it has two card slots, it really doesn't close too well if you put cards in it, and you can't do that much with just two card slots anyway. But as I said, this is really just a folio case, so I don't think you can mark it down too much for its sub-par wallet functionality.

Nice looking case but I prefer a wallet style. How did you get to be a reviewer Kristin? Seems a fun job to have all those products to review..
It's not really a wallet, despite the card slots--I totally agree. But as a folio case, it is awesome!
As far as the reviewing is concerned, I just kind of slid into it. I started reviewing some cases that I liked that I had bought, and then it just kind of grew from there. It's not a full time job or anything, but it is fun :)

You sound like Lisa Gade from Mobile Tech Reviews, and thinking about it I have never seen both of you in the same room together ;)

I generally like their stuff. Really well made. Just so expensive for an iPhone case though. They've got something similar to this at Best Buy I think.

Kristin,

When my Apple Watch arrives, I'll probably place my iPhone in a nice leather pouch and keep it in my pocket until really necessary!

The Saddle Leather line from Adopted is exclusive to Best Buy, actually. You can buy this exact case there, as well as the regular version without a folio cover.

You guys are funny. I'll have to go listen to her!

Kristin

OK, my daughter and I watched one of Lisa Gage's videos and you are right, we do have similar voices. We're not the same person though, honest! I only wish I had as many YouTube subscribers and views as she does!!

Sorry to bump this old thread, but how has the case held up after using it for a few months?

I'm afraid my answer won't be very helpful, as I haven't given it that much use. I switch my cases out extensively...and I have a lot of cases!!! It looks fine, though :)
