Skech's Polo Book ($35) is a new folio wallet case for iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6/6s Plus. The faux-leather Polo Book is particularly similar to Monk's Magnet Wallet Case. Polo Book features a detachable inner shell with a magnetic back, so the iPhone can be removed from the wallet for use — or to be stuck to a magnetic car mount — if desired. Skech's case offers card pockets which can hold more cards than most — we'd be comfortable putting three cards in each of the two pockets, not including the ID pocket. A cash pocket is also included, of course. Unlike Monk's case, Polo Book offers a magnetic clasp to keep the case shut, and its cover folds into a landscape viewing stand. The case comes in black or pink.

Folio cases are rarely ever a good choice for protection, and this is still the case with Polo Book, which uses a shell without button coverage inside. Wallet folio cases, however, offer some legitimate extra functionality, and Polo Book is near the top of the class in this regard. It’s an affordable wallet folio case with enough room to carry more than a couple of cards, and it earns our strong general recommendation.
