Mike Lavalee edition Hellbent horizontal pouch case

When it comes to cases for your Android smartphone, there's style, and then there's style. What you see before you here is the Mike Lavallee edition of the HellBent Horizontal Pouch Case. Lavallee, of course, is the name behind Killer Paint Inc., and you've seen his work on such shows as TLC's "Overhaulin'," "Miami Ink," and "Rides," as well as Discovery's "Monster Garage."  And now you can have his work protect your phone.

The patented process used to transfer the artwork to the case is done without changing the look or feel of the leather, and it's highly resistant to household chemicals, perfumes and cosmetics. Because the artwork impregnates the leather, it can't fade or separate from the case.

As for the case itself, it's your basic horizontal pouch with belt clip on the rear. The phone slips inside -- face in or out, it's up to you -- and the flap is held in place with a magnet. One down side is that depending on where the 3.5mm headphone jack is on your phone, you might not have access to it while the phone's in the case. But otherwise, the phone sits securely inside.

The Mike Lavalee edition of the HellBent Horizontal case fits a number of Android smartphones. (Be sure to use the device selector to make sure yours fits.) It's available now in the Android Central Store for $49.95. We've got more pictures after the break.

Case review: HellBent horizontal pouch (Mike Lavallee edition)

6 Comments

When you put your Droid 2 in it (don't know about other phones), does the magnet automatically put the phone into car-dock or multimedia-dock mode (and bring it out of sleep to do it)?

I'm having a devil of a time with my mag closure on my case not triggering it (am trying to overcome it with Autostarts and Tasker).

pretty sweet..kinda pricey though but sweet.. i know it doesnt say the horizontal pouch will work with the nexus one but i was wondering if you think it will work ? thanks

Wow. This will go great with my super-rad collection of Ed Hardy t-shirts, and the colors will match my super-duper spray-on tan.
