Traditional phone cases are all well and good, but sometimes you just want something that'll protect your device when it's in transit, or in a bag or pocket with other items. For that kind of protection, it's hard to beat a good old-fashioned leather pouch, such as SGP's Crumena pouch for the Samsung Galaxy S3.

This is a snug-fitting pouch for the Galaxy S3 (international and U.S. versions) that protects it from scuffs and scrapes, and includes a cut-out area for the microphone so as to not to mask the sound of ringtones and notifications. To remove the phone, simply pull on the magnetic tab, and it'll rise out from the case -- and it's that magnet which helps to secure the device in place. And as the pouch is designed to be loaded with the headphone jack at the top, you can easily listen to music on your S3 while it's loaded inside the case.

The outside of the case is furnished in leather, which gives it a soft, yet sturdy feel. On the inside, there's a soft coating to help protect the screen and glossy back of the device. Overall, it's well-built, and ideal for S3 owners looking for occasional protection while their phone's in a backpack or handbag.

The SGP Crumena Leather Pouch for the Samsung Galaxy S3 is currently available in brown from ShopAndroid.com, priced $29.99. Black and white versions are coming soon, and are available to pre-order.
