There are a number of wooden iPhone cases out there, but most of them are two piece and often separate in your pocket, making them pretty, but useless. The Japanese-made wooden Hacoa case for the iPhone 4 and 4S is laser cut from one piece of wood and comes in maple, walnut and rose wood. It feels and looks so cool you just may find yourself caressing your magic device twice as much.
At first I didn't want a case for my iPhone because it looks so cool on its own that I didn't want to cover it up with the corny-ass vinyl case the dude at Radioshack was trying to sell me. But there's something about the iPhone that makes you drop it. Maybe it's the fact that it's just so damn sleek that it just slips right out of your hands. I don't know, but after some close calls, I knew I needed a case.
After ample Googling, I discovered that there is a world of wooden iPhone cases out there. After reading reviews of the downfalls of two-piece wooden cases, I found out about Hacoa. Everything they make is super Zen. I've had this case for a few hours in maple and somehow it makes my phone feel lighter.
This expensive case seems sturdy and holds the iPhone perfectly, but it very well may break upon true, hard impact. If that were to happen, I would only hope it would save what I'm really trying to protect: my phone.
