There are two slots on the back of the case for credit cards or a driver's license. This is perfect if you are a minimalist, but I opted not to use them since I didn't want to stretch the pocket. I enjoy the elegance of the leather case without the cards.
The case has a cover flap that opens like a book and stays closed with the help of two magnets. It takes some acclimation if you're used to a bumper style case, but i like the clean lines when it's closed.
