I am known for being indecisive about phone cases. I’m guilty of having a slew of options to choose from on any given day, based on my outfit and the occasion, but since I got the OtterBox Commuter Series Wallet Phone Case a few months ago I haven’t switched back once.
First of all, the slide out wallet slot in the back simplifies my life immensely. No matter if I’m carrying a bag or not I always have my phone in hand, and there’s nothing worse than having to rummage around looking for your wallet at Starbucks with an angry, caffeine-deprived line behind you. I’ve seen other phone cases with credit card slots but none that close securely, and having my cards fall out is a risk I’m not willing to take. The OtterBox fits two cards and some cash comfortably. In addition, all OtterBox phone cases are extremely protective. You can drop it on concrete and cause no damage. The downside to this is that OtterBox cases are thicker than most, but when you factor in the extra weight of carrying around a phone and a wallet, the thicker case is worth it. Available on Amazon for $27.99.
