16. Sena Ultraslim Access
We’re big fans of Sena’s cases for the iPad, so it’s not much of a surprise we also really like its iPhone offerings. Out favourite is the Ultraslim Access – a simple sleeve, constructed out of hard wearing leather that keeps the sophisticated look of the iPhone 5s. A handy cut-out at the bottom gives you easy access to the Lightning connector and there’s even a swish velvet lining along the top.
17. Mophie Juicepack Plus
The iPhone is far from the worst smartphone in terms of battery life, though its still only going to keep you juiced up for a day. Battery charging cases are everywhere now, combating this issue and one of our favourites is the Juicepack Plus. Packing a 2,100 mAh battery, this baby can make sure your phone isn’t out of charge when you need it most. Not content with just providing power, this also has a durable, impact-resistant band protecting the corners and the rear.
18. True Religion Zach Wallet
Wallet style cases are becoming more and more popular, and it’s not hard to see why. Keep your phone protected, and carry around some cards and cash, all in one package. The Zach Wallet is hand-crafted from premium leather, boasts a microfibre interior for scratch prevention and has a handy stand, with multiple viewing angles, so you can settle down with some Netflix.
19. Naztech Vault Waterproof Ultra-Slim
By adding a shockproof casing and protection from even the most severe of conditions, the Naztech Vault is a real ‘take anywhere’ case. It can protect your iPhone underwater for a whopping 20m, it’s IPX-8 rated and SGS certified, yet is far from obtrusive. Getting it on is easy and quick and it looks pretty good too.
20. Belkin Lego
It’s a case that you can use actual Lego on – need we say anymore? Possibly the most fun you can have, while at the same time protecting your shiny iPhone 5s. There’s all around rear coverage and bevy of colours, but it’s the childhood memories that win us over.
21. Knomo iPhone
Constructed of genuine leather (well, we wouldn’t expect anything else from Knomo) this will save you space in your pockets – as it includes both a place to keep your phone and a handy pull-out sleeve for your cards. Three cards can be stored in the removable section, while a microfibre lining cushions your iPhone. This is a really well made and classy case.
22. Proporta Leather case with Carbon Fibre
Not many cases can actually make this boast, but this one has been shot with a shotgun – and survived. While it’s not advised you take this test yourself, it does mean this is one sturdy customer and will be sure to provide oodles of protection to your iPhone. There’s a carbon fibre lining, microfibre interior to keep the screen scratch free and a layer of fine leather on the outside.
