    Pursecase is a simple way to keep all your essentials at your fingertips. It’s fashionable, elegant, stylish, and a lot of fun. It’s a conversation starter. When you go to the grocery store and whip out your credit cards, someone will almost always comment on how great of an idea it is and that’s part of the fun when carrying a Pursecase. It attracts a lot of attention and is so handy, I have women come to me all the time and say to me, I don’t know how I lived without this before but it’s fantastic and I love it, which is so rewarding to hear.

    @Kelley I have a Droid Maxx. Would buy one in a minute if you make it. Also, before I started reading all the comments, I thought your pricepoint is right on. I actually thought it was a little on the low side. Keep up the good work.

    This purse really seems like it covers everything. Was this the version from the get-go or did you add features as you went along?

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/14/2015 5:30 PM

    Well thank you! The design of the Pursecase has only been modified slightly since we launched for improvements in quality. We added the wildly popular cross-body chain as an add-on originally, but due to such overwhelming demand we now sell the Pursecase bundled with the cross body chain strap. Ladies love being able to be completely hands-free!

    What inspired you to create this then turn it into a business? Was it an ‘aha’ moment or more of a gradual process?

  • Kelley

    10/14/2015 5:32 PM

    I own and run a PR company called Melrose PR, so I am always busy and on-the-go. I was always putting my phone down and dropping it, so I wanted to create something that was easy to use, that could keep all my essentials like; business cards, drivers license, credit card, ID, and cash all at my fingertips, but also have my phone in a safe, secure case that could hang on my wrist.

    So I had this idea and bounced it around different influencers and bloggers that we worked with a lot and everyone kept reassuring me how good of an idea it was. I kept looking for a product similar to it, but couldn’t find one so that’s where the idea came from. When I was able secure our domain name and find that Pursecase was available on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, that was my indication that I should go for it and so we took what was an idea and made it into a reality. It was quick, we made a prototype and launched it on Kick Starter, then took it into Shark Tank.

    Since then it’s been wildly popular.

    Just because I’ve never asked anyone this question, what was it like to be on Shark Tank? What don’t we see on TV?

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/14/2015 5:33 PM

    It’s actually just as intense as it appears on TV, except maybe even more so! On TV you only see roughly 7 minutes of what can be up to 2 hours “in the tank.” Our session was just under one hour, and although it was scary, it was so rewarding. We were so prepared for every possible question, so we came across professionally, and it worked out very well!

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 9:33 AM

    Hi Judith, Pursecase is almost exactly inline with other phone cases on the market and it looks better than just about all of them. They are made of silicone so you know you are paying for a durable product as well. I can't imagine a $4 clutch falling in the durable category.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:07 PM

    @Judith our major differntiator is our concealed pocket along with the chain handle. We actually own the utility patent on this. It's a high-quality, protective silicone case that is well-made and also has the purse pocket feature, as well as a compact mirror. Given those features, we feel the price point is competitive. We hope you'll consider purchasing one from the Grommet to see for yourself. Thanks for your question!

    10/15/2015 10:25 AM

    We don't want anyone breaking the bank, Phylis, but Pursecase is exactly inline with just about every phone case out there, the silicone material makes it incredibly durable, AND it doesn't look like you picked it out of a scrapheap in The Matrix. It's sort of a win all around.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:10 PM

    @Joan- the iPhone 6 pursecase fits SOMEWHAT on the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone model. It's by no means a perfect fit, and the camera does not line up (as it wasn't made for that phone) but we have some die-hard pursecase fans who use them on their Samsung Galaxy S5 as they couldn't live without the product!

    *I repeat, it's not a perfect fit, but it does fit the model and protect it. Some features of your phone might be difficult to use with this particular case on.

  • Patricia

    @Patricia - Also, any chance you could make a "generic" smartphone case? Maybe that would cover most of the other phones out there...?!

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 1:48 PM

    Hi Patricia, there really is no generic phone size which makes that tough. Your best bet is to measure the size of your phone and see how it compares to the sizes available.

  • Mike

    @Mike As a woman "on the go," a place for car keys would make it much better. Not everyone lives in a place where public transportation or taxis/Uber are how we roll. Actually, I would guess most women need space for keys, lipstick, and probably a brush or comb. Now, if with your spouse or on a date, this would be perfect!

  • Alice

    I will probably clip my keychain onto one of the clips that attaches to the case when I need to. It won't look as pretty but it will function like I need it to.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 10:47 AM

    Hi Alice, that is a great idea. Fashion and function! Lynda, you could use the key solution Alice mentioned and you should have no trouble fitting a comb or small tube of lipstick in the pocket on the back.

    @Lynda and @Alice yes we have a lot of customers who attach a lobster claw keychain so they can add keys. The cross-body chain strap is detatchable so you can use the lobster claw on that to clip keys. We hope you love the product, and can't wait to hear how you use it!!

    @Michele the small chain handle on the pursecase is actually made of silicone, which hopefully wouldn't irritate you, but there are small metal loops on each side. We do plan to roll out different cross-body strap options in the future, so check back on The Grommet for new products and additions. We may do a "sporty" version of the chain, for those who want to take it on power-walks, etc!

    I love this idea and I remember seeing it on Sharktank, thinking "what a great idea!". I'm interested in getting a couple of the IPhone ones as gifts, and getting myself the Galaxy one when it comes out. QUESTION: Can you answer the phone and talk on it while it is still in the purse (by putting it up to your ear while it is still in the purse)? AND can you talk on it via bluetooth while it is still in the purse? Thanks!

    YES you can answer the phone and talk on it while its still in the pursecase, you can actually use ALL the features of your iPhone while it's inside the pursecase, that's part of why its so great!! Protects it 100% of the time and doesn't compromise the awesome iPhone features like charging, bluetooth, the camera, etc.

    Kelly - love your product! I hate lugging a big bag when I dash out to run errands. Do you have any plans to offer the pursecase in both gold chain as well as silver? I would like to purchase one, but right now I tend to wear more gold than silver. I am ocd when it comes to mixing gold jewelry with silver accents on clothes, boots, etc. I prefer the black other than a colored pursecase. Any possibility of designing it with interchangeable hardware/chain? Probably not cost effective, but love the idea so much I have to ask! Thanks you.

    @Shay--I did want to further clarify that this is not just a one day offering at Grommet like you might find at daily deals sites. We support and offer our launched Grommets for the long haul...you will be able to find the Pursecase all the way through the year--as long as we have inventory.

    I have the Otter Box on my phone for protection. Will it fit in this purse? I'd hate to lose the awesome protection of the Otter Box, but I do find it rather ugly so I'd like to put it into that cute little purse!

  • Mike

    Hi Ramona, I doubt the Otter Box will fit because the Pursecases were designed to be a snug fit. You might compromise some security, but think of how great your phone will look with Pursecase ;)

    Hello, I have been looking for something like this for my I-phone 6 Plus. Do you have one for that? This looks like it is just what I need. Reasonably pricced as well. I paid $65 for a leather case that held my D/L and cards and some $$, but it only lasted a short time and everything started falling out of the case. It looks like yours is more secure having the latch. I just want one to fit my phone please. :)

    10/15/2015 11:35 AM

    @Randal I think your wife may have the new iPhone 6S PLUS, and if so, it fits the iPhone 6 PLUS case! I would double check with her first as the regular 6/6S and the PLUS 6/6S are different sizes, but one of them will certainly fit hers! I just wouldn't want you to order the wrong one. Your wife will LOVE it! Kudos on being an awesome, and savvy husband!

I ordered already and ordered for the "Plus". I feel confident that it will work. If not I will return it and order something else. I just started seeing your emails when you sent out a promotion.

    Good Morning I have two questions. Will it fit an iphone6plus in a protective case example: otter box or life proof? Secondly is there a tan/cream color? I wear mostly Browns.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 11:44 AM

    At the moment, the answer to both is no. The iPhone 6+ is the largest case and if you add on to the phone's size you will likely stretch the material if you can fit it in at all. There is no tan/cream yet, but it is always a possibility for the future!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:27 PM

    @Heather although you cant fit your otter box or lifeproof case inside the pursecase, you dont really need it. While pursecase isnt completely waterproof, it is "drop" proof and does protect the phone.

    Really like this concept...Hoping for a Note 3 version soon...

    Not so keen on the chunky chain thing, just not my style, and I cannot have metal touching my skin. If there are no options there, my plan is to go to the thrift store and pick up something that has a long leather or fabric shoulder strap (hooks on both ends) on it, and use that...simple! Would also like to remove the hand-strap when not in use. Congratulations on bringing this to market!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:39 PM

    @Beki thanks for your feedback and praise! I hear you on the chain- we are working on coming out with some different options, so sign up for the daily grommet emails for updates! I think your idea of the thrift shop for now is very DIY and a fabulous idea!!! If you do end up doing this, I'd love to see the final product! Since our cross-body chains are removable, you certainly could make your own or use your favorite handbag chain instead (as long as it has hooks on both ends). We will also take your feedback about making the hand-strap removable into consideration. I hear that often when people first buy the pursecase but then they have come back and said that it actually doesn't bother them- that they actually like having it- so I'll be curious to see what you think!

    Also- regarding the Note 3- the iPhone 6 PLUS pursecase fits SOMEWHAT on the Samsung Note 3 phone model as they are roughly the same shape and size. It's by no means a perfect fit, and the camera does not line up (as it wasn't made for that phone) but we have some die-hard pursecase fans who use the iPhone 6 PLUS pursecase on their Samsung Note 3 as they couldn't live without the product!

    *I repeat, it's not a perfect fit, but it does fit the model and protect it. Some features of your phone might be difficult to use with this particular case on.

    Hi Kelley -

    Will an iphone 6 fit, if it already has a "life proof" case that I would like to keep on it? (Because of kids and phone needs to be waterproof) Thanks!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:34 PM

    @Kimberlee I often joke that the case is "kid proof" as we often find it turns out to be a favorite chew toy or accessory (whatever mom uses frequently is what your kid wants- right!?) however it's not waterproof. While I have dropped mine in the sink before (and it's been totally fine!) I wouldn't recommend it. Pursecase protects from drops, but not from water damage. Sadly it's made to fit snug on your phone (for maximum protection) so you would not be able to keep the lifeproof case on with the pursecase as it wouldn't fit.

    This is a great idea for girls who only carry their phone out but don't always have pockets in their evening wear. However I'm not a fan of the cross body and with a clutch you might as well be carrying it in your hand for all the freedom it affords you. Will you be coming out with just a shoulder length strap? That I would buy instantly and was rather dissapointed when I saw you didn't have it.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team

    Hi Sherellyn, thanks for the feedback. I have no doubt this idea will be batted around the Pursecase offices as they continue to develop the product!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:42 PM

    @Sherellyn actually the long strap is detachable, so you could use the pursecase without it! And you can wear it on your wrist. When the long chain is attached, you barely even notice the smaller chain. Often customers are concerned at first but pleasantly surprised at how well it works. OR you can use pliers to easily remove the small handle if you decided you really didn't ever need it. Let me know what you decide!

  • Patricia

    Hi Kelley, I think your product is great! I would like to try one but my only hesistation is that I've tried several different kinds in the past and the problem I always run into is the the amount of cards you can carry. I find I need to carry so many that they always bulge the product and eventually the seams give and rip. How many does this allow? I've 5 debit/CC, my insurance cards(3), ID, grocery and bulk shopping cards. I do not want to carry a separate anything, which to me negates the whole idea of this kind of carrier.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 2:19 PM

    Hi Patricia, you should be ok fitting that amount of cards. The case is wide enough that you could almost create two stacks of five cards. If it isn't big enough, maybe pick your favorite debit/credit cards?

  • Patricia
    Patricia
    10/15/2015 2:39 PM

    @Mike not to sound nit-picky or uppity but these are the must have cards that are used at least several times monthly. Not ones that used on occasion or a few times a year. Having said this, "should and almost" are not the answers am looking for if I'm going to spend 35$ on an item that "may" last a couple months as all the others have and I spent from 7-24$ for those. I have to KNOW that this will do what I need at this price point and honestly, I expect as much from the grommet. I recommend your site often to friends and family because of the quality and innovative products you offer and expect no less. How many cards will this fit comfortably, without bulging or compromising the function of the product. If I have to struggle to get my insurance card out at my doctors office with my current medical conditions(RA, tenosynovitis) then im not sure it's worth the price. Thanks for your understanding. :-)

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:54 PM

    @Patricia hi there!! thanks for your question and i get it. The pursecase pocket size depends on the size of the model pursecase- for example the pursecase for iPhone 5 pocket is slightly smaller than the pocket on the iPhone 6 PLUS because it's a smaller phone. I have the iPhone 6 and I comfortably fit 4 credit cards, 5 business cards, my drivers license, and the compact mirror (which is included and removable) in my pursecase at all times, but I've known ladies who keep more or less in their pockets! But without bulging I would say you can fit 5 credit cards in the iPhone 5, 7 in the iPhone 6, and 9 in the iPhone 6 Plus.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:58 PM

    @Patricia- If you have the iPhone 5- the smallest one- I think you could fit maybe 3 of your credit cards if you wanted to also include the insurance cards, ID, and Grocery cards. You would be able to fit all of your stuff in the pocket but it would bulge slightly and may compromise the picture taking ability- as when the pocket bulges out it can slightly interfere with the camera hole. My recommendation would be to try to cut back to just the essential couple cards you use multiple times a day and then keep the rest in a small pouch nearby- maybe you could clip it on and off. That's what I do. I hope that helps!

    This appears to be just what I'm looking for when I go to a casino. I need my phone and space for ID & some money. Am I safe in assuming that the case for the iPhone 5 will fit my 4s?

  • Mike

Pursecase

Phone Case Clutch

Stylin’ & Dialin’

Pursecase turns your phone into a tiny designer purse. This silicone phone case cleverly mimics a quilted handbag. Carry your phone in style, and hands-free, over your shoulder or wrist.

As functional as it is adorable, Pursecase won’t interfere with your phone’s screen or camera. You’re free to dial, scroll, and even take
pictures.

A small pocket lets you carry other essentials, like an ID, credit cards, and cash. And the compact mirror comes in handy to check yourself on the go.

Founder Kelley Coughlan Weaver is a busy publicist who wanted a fashionable way to carry her phone. So she invented one, then brought it to "Shark Tank” and got funding for her phone purse.

If someone stops and asks where you got your Pursecase, don’t be surprised. We’ve had many impressed passersby question us about this new must-have accessory.

    Why is this something every woman with a phone should have?

    Pursecase is a simple way to keep all your essentials at your fingertips. It’s fashionable, elegant, stylish, and a lot of fun. It’s a conversation starter. When you go to the grocery store and whip out your credit cards, someone will almost always comment on how great of an idea it is and that’s part of the fun when carrying a Pursecase. It attracts a lot of attention and is so handy, I have women come to me all the time and say to me, I don’t know how I lived without this before but it’s fantastic and I love it, which is so rewarding to hear.

    This purse really seems like it covers everything. Was this the version from the get-go or did you add features as you went along?

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/14/2015 5:30 PM

    Well thank you! The design of the Pursecase has only been modified slightly since we launched for improvements in quality. We added the wildly popular cross-body chain as an add-on originally, but due to such overwhelming demand we now sell the Pursecase bundled with the cross body chain strap. Ladies love being able to be completely hands-free!

  • Mike

    What inspired you to create this then turn it into a business? Was it an ‘aha’ moment or more of a gradual process?

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/14/2015 5:32 PM

    I own and run a PR company called Melrose PR, so I am always busy and on-the-go. I was always putting my phone down and dropping it, so I wanted to create something that was easy to use, that could keep all my essentials like; business cards, drivers license, credit card, ID, and cash all at my fingertips, but also have my phone in a safe, secure case that could hang on my wrist.

    So I had this idea and bounced it around different influencers and bloggers that we worked with a lot and everyone kept reassuring me how good of an idea it was. I kept looking for a product similar to it, but couldn’t find one so that’s where the idea came from. When I was able secure our domain name and find that Pursecase was available on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, that was my indication that I should go for it and so we took what was an idea and made it into a reality. It was quick, we made a prototype and launched it on Kick Starter, then took it into Shark Tank.

    Since then it’s been wildly popular.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team

    Just because I’ve never asked anyone this question, what was it like to be on Shark Tank? What don’t we see on TV?

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/14/2015 5:33 PM

    It’s actually just as intense as it appears on TV, except maybe even more so! On TV you only see roughly 7 minutes of what can be up to 2 hours “in the tank.” Our session was just under one hour, and although it was scary, it was so rewarding. We were so prepared for every possible question, so we came across professionally, and it worked out very well!

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 9:33 AM

    Hi Judith, Pursecase is almost exactly inline with other phone cases on the market and it looks better than just about all of them. They are made of silicone so you know you are paying for a durable product as well. I can't imagine a $4 clutch falling in the durable category.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:07 PM

    @Judith our major differntiator is our concealed pocket along with the chain handle. We actually own the utility patent on this. It's a high-quality, protective silicone case that is well-made and also has the purse pocket feature, as well as a compact mirror. Given those features, we feel the price point is competitive. We hope you'll consider purchasing one from the Grommet to see for yourself. Thanks for your question!

    10/15/2015 10:25 AM

    We don't want anyone breaking the bank, Phylis, but Pursecase is exactly inline with just about every phone case out there, the silicone material makes it incredibly durable, AND it doesn't look like you picked it out of a scrapheap in The Matrix. It's sort of a win all around.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:10 PM

    @Joan- the iPhone 6 pursecase fits SOMEWHAT on the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone model. It's by no means a perfect fit, and the camera does not line up (as it wasn't made for that phone) but we have some die-hard pursecase fans who use them on their Samsung Galaxy S5 as they couldn't live without the product!

    *I repeat, it's not a perfect fit, but it does fit the model and protect it. Some features of your phone might be difficult to use with this particular case on.

  • Patricia

  • Mike

    10/15/2015 1:48 PM

    Hi Patricia, there really is no generic phone size which makes that tough. Your best bet is to measure the size of your phone and see how it compares to the sizes available.

    @Mike As a woman "on the go," a place for car keys would make it much better. Not everyone lives in a place where public transportation or taxis/Uber are how we roll. Actually, I would guess most women need space for keys, lipstick, and probably a brush or comb. Now, if with your spouse or on a date, this would be perfect!

  • Alice

    I will probably clip my keychain onto one of the clips that attaches to the case when I need to. It won't look as pretty but it will function like I need it to.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 10:47 AM

    Hi Alice, that is a great idea. Fashion and function! Lynda, you could use the key solution Alice mentioned and you should have no trouble fitting a comb or small tube of lipstick in the pocket on the back.

    @Lynda and @Alice yes we have a lot of customers who attach a lobster claw keychain so they can add keys. The cross-body chain strap is detatchable so you can use the lobster claw on that to clip keys. We hope you love the product, and can't wait to hear how you use it!!

    @Michele the small chain handle on the pursecase is actually made of silicone, which hopefully wouldn't irritate you, but there are small metal loops on each side. We do plan to roll out different cross-body strap options in the future, so check back on The Grommet for new products and additions. We may do a "sporty" version of the chain, for those who want to take it on power-walks, etc!

    I love this idea and I remember seeing it on Sharktank, thinking "what a great idea!". I'm interested in getting a couple of the IPhone ones as gifts, and getting myself the Galaxy one when it comes out. QUESTION: Can you answer the phone and talk on it while it is still in the purse (by putting it up to your ear while it is still in the purse)? AND can you talk on it via bluetooth while it is still in the purse? Thanks!

    YES you can answer the phone and talk on it while its still in the pursecase, you can actually use ALL the features of your iPhone while it's inside the pursecase, that's part of why its so great!! Protects it 100% of the time and doesn't compromise the awesome iPhone features like charging, bluetooth, the camera, etc.

    Kelly - love your product! I hate lugging a big bag when I dash out to run errands. Do you have any plans to offer the pursecase in both gold chain as well as silver? I would like to purchase one, but right now I tend to wear more gold than silver. I am ocd when it comes to mixing gold jewelry with silver accents on clothes, boots, etc. I prefer the black other than a colored pursecase. Any possibility of designing it with interchangeable hardware/chain? Probably not cost effective, but love the idea so much I have to ask! Thanks you.

    Hi Debbie, you can see a full list of iPhones it fits on the drop down menu by clicking "buy" below the video. A different cross body material might be coming out in the future. the silicone will make it somewhat water resistant but not completely so definitely exercise caution.

    I love the look of this, however I would only use it with the cross body attachment, and a chain isn't the look I'd like . How about the clutch with no handle and cross body leather?

    Good idea. Thanks,

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 4:19 PM

    Hello, I have been looking for something like this for my I-phone 6 Plus. Do you have one for that? This looks like it is just what I need. Reasonably pricced as well. I paid $65 for a leather case that held my D/L and cards and some $$, but it only lasted a short time and everything started falling out of the case. It looks like yours is more secure having the latch. I just want one to fit my phone please. :)

I would double check with her first as the regular 6/6S and the PLUS 6/6S are different sizes, but one of them will certainly fit hers! I just wouldn't want you to order the wrong one. Your wife will LOVE it! Kudos on being an awesome, and savvy husband!

    Good Morning I have two questions. Will it fit an iphone6plus in a protective case example: otter box or life proof? Secondly is there a tan/cream color? I wear mostly Browns.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 11:44 AM

    At the moment, the answer to both is no. The iPhone 6+ is the largest case and if you add on to the phone's size you will likely stretch the material if you can fit it in at all. There is no tan/cream yet, but it is always a possibility for the future!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:27 PM

    @Heather although you cant fit your otter box or lifeproof case inside the pursecase, you dont really need it. While pursecase isnt completely waterproof, it is "drop" proof and does protect the phone.

    Really like this concept...Hoping for a Note 3 version soon...

    Not so keen on the chunky chain thing, just not my style, and I cannot have metal touching my skin. If there are no options there, my plan is to go to the thrift store and pick up something that has a long leather or fabric shoulder strap (hooks on both ends) on it, and use that...simple! Would also like to remove the hand-strap when not in use. Congratulations on bringing this to market!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:39 PM

    @Beki thanks for your feedback and praise! I hear you on the chain- we are working on coming out with some different options, so sign up for the daily grommet emails for updates! I think your idea of the thrift shop for now is very DIY and a fabulous idea!!! If you do end up doing this, I'd love to see the final product! Since our cross-body chains are removable, you certainly could make your own or use your favorite handbag chain instead (as long as it has hooks on both ends). We will also take your feedback about making the hand-strap removable into consideration. I hear that often when people first buy the pursecase but then they have come back and said that it actually doesn't bother them- that they actually like having it- so I'll be curious to see what you think!

    Also- regarding the Note 3- the iPhone 6 PLUS pursecase fits SOMEWHAT on the Samsung Note 3 phone model as they are roughly the same shape and size. It's by no means a perfect fit, and the camera does not line up (as it wasn't made for that phone) but we have some die-hard pursecase fans who use the iPhone 6 PLUS pursecase on their Samsung Note 3 as they couldn't live without the product!

    *I repeat, it's not a perfect fit, but it does fit the model and protect it. Some features of your phone might be difficult to use with this particular case on.

    Hi Kelley -

    Will an iphone 6 fit, if it already has a "life proof" case that I would like to keep on it? (Because of kids and phone needs to be waterproof) Thanks!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 12:34 PM

    @Kimberlee I often joke that the case is "kid proof" as we often find it turns out to be a favorite chew toy or accessory (whatever mom uses frequently is what your kid wants- right!?) however it's not waterproof. While I have dropped mine in the sink before (and it's been totally fine!) I wouldn't recommend it. Pursecase protects from drops, but not from water damage. Sadly it's made to fit snug on your phone (for maximum protection) so you would not be able to keep the lifeproof case on with the pursecase as it wouldn't fit.

    This is a great idea for girls who only carry their phone out but don't always have pockets in their evening wear. However I'm not a fan of the cross body and with a clutch you might as well be carrying it in your hand for all the freedom it affords you. Will you be coming out with just a shoulder length strap? That I would buy instantly and was rather dissapointed when I saw you didn't have it.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team

    Hi Sherellyn, thanks for the feedback. I have no doubt this idea will be batted around the Pursecase offices as they continue to develop the product!

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:42 PM

    @Sherellyn actually the long strap is detachable, so you could use the pursecase without it! And you can wear it on your wrist. When the long chain is attached, you barely even notice the smaller chain. Often customers are concerned at first but pleasantly surprised at how well it works. OR you can use pliers to easily remove the small handle if you decided you really didn't ever need it. Let me know what you decide!

  • Patricia

    Hi Kelley, I think your product is great! I would like to try one but my only hesistation is that I've tried several different kinds in the past and the problem I always run into is the the amount of cards you can carry. I find I need to carry so many that they always bulge the product and eventually the seams give and rip. How many does this allow? I've 5 debit/CC, my insurance cards(3), ID, grocery and bulk shopping cards. I do not want to carry a separate anything, which to me negates the whole idea of this kind of carrier.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/15/2015 2:19 PM

    Hi Patricia, you should be ok fitting that amount of cards. The case is wide enough that you could almost create two stacks of five cards. If it isn't big enough, maybe pick your favorite debit/credit cards?

  • Patricia
    Patricia
    10/15/2015 2:39 PM

    @Mike not to sound nit-picky or uppity but these are the must have cards that are used at least several times monthly. Not ones that used on occasion or a few times a year. Having said this, "should and almost" are not the answers am looking for if I'm going to spend 35$ on an item that "may" last a couple months as all the others have and I spent from 7-24$ for those. I have to KNOW that this will do what I need at this price point and honestly, I expect as much from the grommet. I recommend your site often to friends and family because of the quality and innovative products you offer and expect no less. How many cards will this fit comfortably, without bulging or compromising the function of the product. If I have to struggle to get my insurance card out at my doctors office with my current medical conditions(RA, tenosynovitis) then im not sure it's worth the price. Thanks for your understanding. :-)

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:54 PM

    @Patricia hi there!! thanks for your question and i get it. The pursecase pocket size depends on the size of the model pursecase- for example the pursecase for iPhone 5 pocket is slightly smaller than the pocket on the iPhone 6 PLUS because it's a smaller phone. I have the iPhone 6 and I comfortably fit 4 credit cards, 5 business cards, my drivers license, and the compact mirror (which is included and removable) in my pursecase at all times, but I've known ladies who keep more or less in their pockets! But without bulging I would say you can fit 5 credit cards in the iPhone 5, 7 in the iPhone 6, and 9 in the iPhone 6 Plus.

  • Kelley
    Kelley – Special Guest
    10/15/2015 2:58 PM

    @Patricia- If you have the iPhone 5- the smallest one- I think you could fit maybe 3 of your credit cards if you wanted to also include the insurance cards, ID, and Grocery cards. You would be able to fit all of your stuff in the pocket but it would bulge slightly and may compromise the picture taking ability- as when the pocket bulges out it can slightly interfere with the camera hole. My recommendation would be to try to cut back to just the essential couple cards you use multiple times a day and then keep the rest in a small pouch nearby- maybe you could clip it on and off. That's what I do. I hope that helps!

    Thanks for the kind words, Rochelle! There is not a model for the Galaxy S6 yet. You might be able to get an iPhone 6 one to slightly fit it, but if you want a snug fit, stay tuned for future models!

    @Mike actually the Galaxy S6 doesnt fit in any of them. The Galaxy S5 fits "sort of" into the iphone 6 case, but not the Galaxy S6 I'm afraid. I know- CONFUSING!

    Is purse case designed to hold a phone that has a skin/ cover already on it? In other words, would I need to remove the existing cover in order to slip my phone into this purse Case? Love the idea and look of this! Thanks!

    Hi Patricia, it is not designed for phones having a skin, but that might not be too big of an obstacle. If it is indeed too tight, you can utilize Pursecase as your new case!

    @PATRICIA The pursecase is not designed to fit over another cover, but the silicon material absorbs shock well and will protect your phone as well as any other case, just with more style!

    Are these Pursecase made to accommodate an iPhone only?

    Wow! Can you clean the purse side if a light colored one gets dirty? Since I'd only like a silver chain, I'm leaning toward the gray Pursecase.

    Yes you can, Karen! Another one of the great benefits of the silicon material!

    This appears to be just what I'm looking for when I go to a casino. I need my phone and space for ID & some money. Am I safe in assuming that the case for the iPhone 5 will fit my 4s?

  • Mike

    10/15/2015 4:12 PM

    Hi Maureen, the 4S is slightly shorter than the 5 so it may not be a perfect fit, but you can certainly try!

    Will an iPhone6 still with protective case on backside fit into this pursecase?

    Unfortunately not, Deborah. Because they are such a snug fit, you would end up harming the material if you even could make it fit.

    There are a lot of Samsung Galaxy users out there. Why only for iPhone?

    Because unfortunately, Laura, there are seemingly infinite more iPhone users.
