If you like the idea of keeping your wallet together with your phone, but either have more stuff than will fit in a iPhone wallet case or don’t like the bulky iPhone case which typically results from that sort of arrangement, then the Bellroy Phone Pocket Plus is definitely worthy of your consideration. Crafted from buttery, full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather, the Phone Pocket Plus has the premium fit and finish that you would expect for its $119.95 price tag. It features well designed storage for up to 10 cards, a number of bills, a large smartphone…as well as dedicated niches for a key, a spare sim card and sim card changer. It is also large enough to fit passports from many countries, including the United States. Simultaneously, I had no problem fitting my iPhone 6s Plus in a minimal bumper case along with 7 cards, 4 bills and a key. I’m sure 10 cards would have fit just fine, but I couldn’t find enough cards lying around to test that with. Fitting lots of cards along with both a passport and a large smartphone such as the 6s Plus seems like it is pushing things a bit, but my passport has extra pages in it, so if I had a thinner passport and was using my iPhone 6s+ without a case, it might all fit at the same time. Testing things out, I found that with fewer cards (and no passport), I could fit my iPhone 6s+ in the Bellroy Phone Pocket Plus with some more substantial cases on it. It fit with the Tech21 Evo Tactical, the RhinoShield PlayProof and the UAG Cobalt with no issues.
* Absolutely gorgeous leather. Smells wonderful, feels luxurious to touch.
* Clever organization and design.
* Good quality zipper.
* Excellent fit and finish.
* Requires significant pocket space. Depending on clothing styles, may fit in many men’s pockets, but most women would probably want to carry it in a handbag.
Conclusion: The Phone Pocket Plus is a serious pleasure to use. It provides excellent organization for all your valuables, and looks and feels great while doing so. Many thanks to Bellroy for providing this sample to me to review. Available in Caramel, Black, Charcoal and Blue Steel, the Phone Pocket Plus retails for $119.95, and feels absolutely worth it.
