Seidio Ledger flip case for Nexus 5

Extra protection and functionality for your Nexus 5, as long as the extra bulk is worth it for you

 

I'm not sure when it happened, but there's a renewed sense of value in having a larger smartphone case that can provide more than simple coverage for the sides and back of the device.
