Product Description

Style: iPhone 5 | Color: Black

It's minimal, but not invisible
Don't call it a case.

SurfacePad for iPhone is a new breed of protection for iPhone. Feather light and credit card thin, SurfacePad for iPhone adheres to, and wraps around, iPhone 5/5s/5c or 4/4s. Rather than protecting your iPhone from falling off the side of a cliff, the luxury leather SurfacePad shields your iPhone from more common hazards, like the keys in your pocket. This minimalistic, napa-leather cover also has a built-in stand for hands-free iPhone use. It’s the perfect cover for those who have an iPhone, and are not afraid to show it.

  • Shield iPhone from scratches without a bulky case
  • Wrap iPhone in a luxury Napa leather jacket
  • Securely adheres to back of iPhone, leaving no residue when removed
Built in stand. Look, no hands!
Use your iPhone naked? We hear you.

iPhone cases have gotten so thick and bulky, many users have chosen to let their iPhones go naked (no case at all). We completely understand. Most don’t need a case that’s military certified or that works underwater. SurfacePad for iPhone is designed to guard against the more typical dangers of daily life, while letting the beautiful modern design of the iPhone still shine through.

SurfacePad is thin, light and shows off your iPhone - but it also makes a design statement all its own. It adds a pop of color to your iPhone. It makes your phone distinctive and sophisticated in a sea of silly plastic. With its razor thin profile and supple touch, SurfacePad is the first cover worthy of your iPhone, and shares the same design sensibilities as well. Sleek, modern, minimal - both device and cover are cut from the same cloth.

Beautifully modern design.
Luxury leather jacket for iPhone.

Made from luxury Napa leather, SurfacePad dresses up iPhone unlike any other cover. At less than 1/10th an inch thick and weighing less than one ounce, this thin leather jacket does not interfere with the buttons, ports or camera on iPhone. Since the cover wraps around and protects the front and back surfaces, the tell-tale profile of the iPhone remains on display. At a glance there’s never any doubt what phone you’ve chosen to run your world.

The minimal design of SurfacePad doesn’t prevent it from making your iPhone stand out. Three colors, Red Pop, Modern White and Jet Black, attach to iPhone with the same special adhesive used on our SurfacePad for MacBook. You can re-position SurfacePad or remove it and re-attach it many times. The only thing you’ll find underneath SurfacePad is the shiny surface of your iPhone.

Purchased this directly from Twelve South, the white version for iPhone 5. Within two weeks the seam split on the leather. Twelve South replaced with a new one that lasted 1.5 weeks. No rough treatment, no abuse, just simple use. The product has a defect in the adhesive used to assemble, yet Twelve South will not acknowledge the issue.

This will certainly change my attitude towards purchasing Twelve South items in the future. They went cheap on this and rooked everyone with a substandard product.

Ive been through 2 of these and they all break (leather separates along glue seam) within days of use. Hopefully they'll fix but for not, not sure its worth the risk, they all seem to have weak glue holding the leather together.

Style Name: iPhone 5Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I was a loyal TwelveSouth customer (3 Bookbook Volume 2 for the iPad, 2 MacBook Surfacepad, 2 Bookbook for the iPhone 4S, 2 Plugbugs and most recently the SurfacePad for the iPhone 5). Unfortunately, this has changed with my experience with TwelveSouth's newest iPhone product the SurfacePad.

After 3 weeks of regular business use the item began to split between the seams. I have come to expect better quality fromTwelveSouth, especially for three weeks of use. I contacted Bridget at TwelveSouth customer service and I was instructed to send the item back to them and once recieved, they will send me a replacement.

I am very disappointed to have to leave my new iPhone 5 unprotected because of TwelveSouth's quality control issues. I use my phone regularly for business and find it very unacceptable to have to purchase another TEMPORARY case because of TwelveSouth's lack if quality control.

This will be the last TwelveSouth product I purchase.

***UPDATE:
After 4 weeks of use all four corners have separated at the seams, revealing the yellow(ish) rigid skeleton. Quite disappointed with TwelveSouth's customer service. No sense or urgency. I really expected to be treated as a valued loyal customer. The quality issues were admittedly known by TwelveSouth, but have not been removed or recalled. Shame, shame, shame TwelveSouth.

Style Name: iPhone 5Color Name: White
I bought this directly from the Twelve South website after reading a write-up on it by the "Better Living Through Design" blog. For your reference, as someone looking to purchase this (I assume), I was using the follwing case prior (which I really had no issues with - just thought I'd try something different): Belkin Grip Candy Sheer Case/Cover For New Apple iPhone 5 (Black / Green)

I dislike this cover/case more than I like it (I'd say 70/30 split).

Yes, generally speaking, this case looks nice. It allows you to see the design of the phone. I can achieve that for free though by not having a case... which would provide about the same amount of protection. However, my phone is not an art installment. I actually use it. I have set my phone on counters and such (mind you I take care of my devices) and gotten dings on the sides in less than 2 days. I don't like that.

A few other observations:

- The adhesive backing does not stick well in the upper leftmost corner immediately to the right of the camera lense. This is annoying.
- The back covering stretches - making it way more tedious than it should be to properly align and apply.
- If you are laying the phone flat on its back, the front cover will not lay flat on the screen of the phone. It sticks up at about a 20 degree angle. One might say this will go away as the leather relaxes but I don't buy that based on several factors (that I won't get into here).
- When you are holding the phone like a sandwich between your thumb and pointer finger with the sreen covered, the screen cover does not line up correctly with the face of the phone.

I was waiting for Mophie to release its iPhone 5 case and got sick of it (5 months? Seriously?) I read about the SurfacePad online, ordered it, and I love it! It looks great, fits the phone perfectly, and really allows the design of the i5 to speak for itself. I could not be more pleased!

Edit 6/22/2013: I had to take this thing off of my phone, as the "seam" in the leather (which was actually just glued) started to split and come away from the cardboard (!) inside. TwelveSouth supposedly has a warranty, so I contacted them for a replacement. They claimed to have no record of my email address. When I verified which email I had used with them by sending a copy of the invoice, I never heard from them again. TwelveSouth is not a company you want to do business with- they do not make quality products and they do not stand behind them. Avoid.

Style Name: iPhone 5Color Name: White
So I bought this for my iPhone 5. It looked awesome. It really did. Unfortunately, the case fell apart within two weeks. It started with the front 'flip' part of the case, the glue sealing the two layers of leather just dissolved and started to peal off at the corner. I actually tried to fix it by re-gluing that part, but then the rest of it pealed off gradually. It made my phone look scummy. Terrible! Twelve South really has cool products but they should test their products before selling them. This was a beautiful case, yet the quality of it was astoundingly bad. Shame on you, Twelve South!
