Dooney & Bourke Pouch for iPhone - accessory review

The Dooney & Bourke Pouch for iPhone is a great case for the lady who is looking for something fashionable and practical to carry her iPhone in. This multifunctional pouch works as both a wallet and iPhone case.

This pouch is much larger than your average case and is designed to not only carry your iPhone, but replace your wallet. The inside flap has 3 card slots and there are pockets in the front and back of the pouch. The main compartment is big enough to hold additional items with your iPhone, such as make-up, cash, and earphones. Because the pouch is bigger than the iPhone, it is also possible to have another case, like a bumper or skin case, on your iPhone and it still fit inside the pouch. For some, the extra large pocket will be a welcomed feature, and for others, it will be a frustrating amount of empty space. The Dooney & Bourke Pouch is also equipped with a leather wrist strap, but it is easily removable if you prefer to toss the case into your purse without the strap.

The exterior of the Dooney & Bourke Pouch is made out of a durable nylon material with leather trim. The coffee color is dark brown and branded with large "Dooney & Bourke" lettering. The black and gray version is gray with Dooney & Bourke's signature "DB" in black. The interior is lined with a material that isn't exactly soft, but won't scratch your iPhone either. The flap over the large pocket magnetically and securely snaps closed.

I find the Dooney & Bourke Pouch to be a great option when I'm looking to minimize the amount of items I'm carrying around. If I'm wearing an outfit without pockets and do not wish to carry around a purse, I grab this pouch, add my ID, credit card, random cash, and iPhone, and head out the door.

The Dooney & Bourke Pouch for iPhone is available in the TiPb Accessory Store.


  • Extra pockets for ID, credit cards, receipts, etc.
  • Big pouch has room for other items in addition to iPhone
  • Compatible with thin cases
  • Removable leather wrist strap
  • Magnetic snap closure
  • Fashionable


  • Big pouch seems a bit awkward with only a (case-free) iPhone inside (too much extra space)
  • Interior is not very soft

TiPb iPhone 4-star rated

The problem I have is there seems to be no way to answer calls or listen to music easily. The headset jack looks blocked to me. Unless you're using a bluetooth headset, maybe. I usually use a wired headset with a microphone.

Leanna Lofte says:

If you spin the iPhone 180 degrees from how I put it in, the headphone jack will be accessible :)
