    Known for its distressed leather vintage book cover style, the Twelve South BookBook is probably one of the only wallet cases anyone is willing to add bulk to carry around.

    It's one of the thicker wallet cases, but at least this time around for the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, for good reason. Offering 3 pockets (4 for the 6 Plus), an ID slot, and an additional side pocket for more cards, receipts, and whatever else you can fit in there.

    Due to the large size though, they've added the ability to remove the actual rubber case from the rest of the wallet, meaning you no longer have to always lug around the whole wallet with you, especially when you don't need it, like at the gym or when you're at home.

    Unfortunately, in my testing period, I, and many other Amazon buyers, have found that the soft rubber coating on the case starts to strip away, just after a week or two!

    The microfibre/nylon backed pockets were also starting to stretch after a week or two as well, which was surprising, considering it wasn't leather. Cards were slipping out easily and that's pretty much the worst thing a wallet case can do.

    But, it's still one of the best wallet folios, especially with the ability to remove the case, makes using a folio manageable.

    Check out my video review below for full details and head on over to the Facebook Page for more detailed images (link in the sig), I've added a few below to not bombard you all.

    The only catch for this case is the removable rubber back cover. Other than that I don't find it really special. It is priced well though.

    Twelve South BookBook series comes down to their style, you really have want that type of vintage leather book style to compromise dealing with the added bulk.
