There are hundreds of options when it comes to iPhone cases. In fact, there are so many options it’s kind of hard to tell the difference between many of them. Well, that’s certainly not the case with The Scarf case from Totallee. It’s the world’s thinnest iPhone case. It’s just 0.35mm thin. That’s ridiculous. That’s probably thinner than your fingernails.
The Scarf is obviously not going to protect your iPhone from anything other than minor scuffs. You wouldn’t buy The Scarf for your iPhone if you were clumsy or looking for real protection. Instead, you buy The Scarf because you want to be able to set your iPhone on a table without worrying about it getting scuff marks.
Now that we’ve cleared that up…I actually really like The Scarf. I thought this case wasn’t going to be that much thinner than a standard plastic case, but I was wrong. This case is ridiculously thin; it’s obvious from the moment you pick it up. The Scarf isn’t very rigid on its own; it’s really just a thin wrapper for your iPhone, which is exactly how it’s advertised. And while it’s barely there, I do trust it to keep my iPhone safe from minor scuffs and scratches. It’s a well made case that does exactly what you want it to.
While I really do like The Scarf, I don’t think it’s perfect; I have two minor complaints. I wish the front of the case extended just a smidge more. This would elevate the face of my iPhone from a surface if I were to set it down screen first. As is, it doesn’t provide any elevation from a surface when place face down. That’s not necessarily surprising.
I also wish the Scarf had a slightly different texture. I worry that it’s a bit slicker than I’m used to and that I might accidentally drop it. There’s a slight texture, but I wish it was a little grippier. I suspect that’s a side effect of making such a thin case. Once I grew accustomed to the feel, I worried less about dropping it than I did at first.
Overall, The Scarf is the ultimate in minimalistic cases. It’s incredibly thin, yet does its job. It won’t be saving your phone from drops, but it will ease your anxiety during normal use. It’s not expensive at all, and it comes in a variety of colors that match your iPhone. The Scarf is a great choice for anyone who doesn’t want a case but knows better than to go without one.
