The STOWAWAY iPhone 5 Credit Card Case is constructed with a plextonium outer shell and a silicone core to provide excellent shock absorption and protection. What makes STOWAWAY different from others is its back-compartment design for holding ID, credit cards, or cash. The compartment door also doubles as a built-in retractable stand, making it easy to watch videos, place FaceTime calls, and even put up a nice photograph slideshow on your desk at work.
Scratched but useful
Pros: Very useful for people that only carry a single credit card and an ID. Sturdy case. Includes front and rear screen protectors. Doesnt thicken the phone too much. Works for iPhone 5 and 5S. Front screen protector leaves the Home button exposed so using with the 5S allows easy operation of the fingerprint scanner.
Cons: Came scratched and I mean a good 60% of the back of the case had scuffs all over it. Very shiny piano black case so my attempts to see if they were smudges resulted in additional scratches from my fingernail.
Other Thoughts: Overall Im pretty happy with it. I bought the case to receive the scuffs and scratches so while it was pretty scratched up on the back, that is why you get this thing. I wont be sending it back because it is really useful. I usually just need my ID and my main credit card and hardly ever carry cash. This case is perfectly suited for my lifestyle. The case is easy to open and the cards are very accessible. Looks like you could put a couple more cards in there if needed. Possibly up to four cards but not sure how or if it would close. The hinge is my only concern for long term use. They use a rubbery material as the hinge so we will see how it holds up. The cards are resting on the back of your phone so a rear protector was appreciated. Still fits in my Kensington cell phone mount in my car so Im all set! Took two eggs off for the scratches but now that I write the review, Ill take only one off.

Neat Idea, Ok Application
Pros: Really Cool Idea. I bought with the thought of forcing myself to minimize and ditching the bulky wallet filled with junk I really never used. Holds two credit cards and my ID and nothing more without not closing flush at the seams.
Cons: Only holds 3 cards. Course to hold more would make it thicker. I don't like the closure. If it is holding something as valuable as my credit cards and ID, I want it to be able to really snap shut and I want to be able to feel it and if I put too much in there, it really doesn't shut well. With 3 cards, although it doesn't "snap" shut, it does take a bit of effort to open it making me feel a bit better about not coming open inadvertently.
Other Thoughts: Really neat idea without it being too thick of a case. Feels sturdy like it will protect during a fall. Feels a bit heavy, but with as light as the new iPhone is, its actually kinda nice to add some weight to it.
