In the world of iPhone protective cases Proporta has one of the most diverse collections.
One of its classics is the £29.95 Aluminium Lined Leather Case, which is now also available in Mulberry and Teal. We reviewed the limited edition James Bond version a while back. There was also a version made for St Patrick's Day.
The Aluminium Lined Leather Case protects the iPhone's screen with a sheet of rigid, lightweight "aircraft-grade" aluminium to guard against crushing and impact shocks.
The case includes a pocket for business/credit/travel cards, and is rather like the Sena MagnetFlipper and Sena Sarach Flip with its smooth, secure magnetic clip that's easy to flick open when that call comes in or you want to use an app.
It won't stand upright on its own, leaning back on the stiff aluminium-backed flip cover - but it will if leant against an object to stop the cover sliping backwards. In comparison Proporta's Alu-Leather Edge iPhone Case can stand supported by only its cover. That case, however, is much more rigid than this one. Another iPhone case with this neat hands-free ability is the Sena Dockable case.
SHOULD I BUY ALUMINIUM LINED CASE?
The Proporta Aluminium Lined Leather Case is a smart, solid, secure iPhone wallet that protects the screen while remaining easily accessible. It is available in Black, Mulberry and Teal.
