Packing heat with a cell phone wallet

No more calculator belts, ever

Uncrate

So you can't live without your smart phone, but even the smallest ones are still too bulky to carry comfortably in your pocket. And you refuse to relive the days when you had a calculator strapped to your belt. (We can't blame you.)

The "Koffski No. 1 Wallet" might be just the answer. No ordinary case, it looks like a shoulder holster that would have fit nicely under one of Eliot Ness' three-piece suits.

This is no cheap knockoff either: "Made from fine Rugato calfskin in Tuscany, the wallet-bag features a premium look with water repellant leather and polished nickel parts," as Uncrate says, which explains its $450 tag. But if it helps avoid painful childhood flashbacks, it's a small price to pay. Besides, it's the perfect complement to the cell phone garter belt .
