Distil Union’s popular Wally wallets and wallet phone cases have arrived on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with Wally Ether. A leather-backed shell case, Wally Ether offers little protection for an iPhone, but it can store up to three cards in its compartment. Wally Ether uses the clever Wally Pull-Tab found in other Wally wallets, which allows users to pull the cards out using the tab. Pushing the cards back into the case causes the tab to retract. It’s an effective way to access your cards, and it also minimizes the case’s bulk — which is a problem with a lot of wallet cases.
While no one should have interest in Wally Ether as a protective case, those who already have an interest in minimalist wallets might be able to see the use in Distil Union’s new shell case. It can hold three cards — and maybe a bill or two — and that’s enough for some people, especially considering the convenience of having cards and your phone in the same place, and the case’s thin frame. We’ve used the Wally wallet before and really like the way the pull-tab works. The pull-tab works just as well here: you’ll just have to decide if the lack of iPhone protection is worth it.
