The Doc Artisan Leather Card Case for iPhone 6 is a slim and simple wallet case — but it’s not a traditional wallet case that folds. No, the Doc Artisan Case for iPhone 6 is a minimalist leather case that also has two card slots built into the backside. If you’re taking Apple Pay to extremes and just need to slip in a driver’s license and a bit of cash, the Doc Artisan Case for iPhone 6 might be the answer to your go-light desires.

Unlike the rest of the Doc Artisan wallet case lineup, there is no folding wallet, and there are no magnets. So what’s left? The basics. A slim polycarbonate case sheathed with genuine leather with two built-in card slots. The leather is glued or fused to the polycarbonate case and the whole thing just does its job.

While it might not be right for everyone, I can see using this card case while traveling. I would plan on using Apple Pay primarily but slip in a credit card, driver’s license, and a bit of cash, enabling me to hit the city for a business dinner followed by drinking at some interesting-but-not-yet-annoying swanky bar. The Doc Artisan Leather Card Case is pocketable but ready enough for helping me buy my way back to my hotel room.

The Doc Artisan Leather Card Case for iPhone 6 features two card slots.

And if you’re not traveling on business, the whole premise still works.

Inside the Doc Artisan Leather Card Case for iPhone 6

This card case is dirt-simple, so there’s not much to talk about here. How about the craftsmanship then? It’s good. The stitching is decent — far better than average and bordering on excellent — and the leather looks and feels like decent leather that will age and scuff appropriately. Doc Artisan says it’s “full-grain Italian vegetable tanned leather.

All-in-all, I’m a big fan of Doc Artisan, and at just $30, the Doc Artisan Card Case for iPhone 6 is a screaming deal, crafted with the real character of leather and available in black, brown, or tan.

I've been writing about the tech industry since the birth of the email newsletter, and I still remember the clacking Mac keyboards from high school -- Apple's seed-planting strategy at work. I'm a big fan of elegant gear and sublime tech, but there's something to be said for turning it all off -- or most of it -- to go outside. Online I like to call out cool stuff on Wicked Cool Bite, share Apple-focused opinions on TechNewsWorld, and blog with my buddies at Man Makes Fire.
