Just a Loop case for iphone, is just a loop
Estimated reading time: 4 minute(s)
This must be the most minimalistic iphone case i have seen, it’s really just a band that you wrap around any iphone or other phone for that matter. It’s called the “just a loop” and goes for 10€ or 13$ for a four pack. My only worries, dosen’t it come of in your pocket? No actually it dosen’t: [source]
Q: Is the loop elastic?
A: No, the loop is made of woven nylon rope. It has around 5% of stretch, but that’s not what is normally considered elastic.
Q: Why is loop not elastic?
A: Because loops from elastic materials don’t stay on the phone firmly enough. They easily slide / roll off when you pull the phone out of a pocket.
Q: What’s the trick then, how does it stay on the phone?
A: Because of very precise loop length and tension.
Q: Doesn’t it move around the phone? Doesn’t it press buttons and cover ports?
A: A lot of care has been taken to adjust the material of the rope and tension so that once set in a proper position, the rope virtually molds itself in a skeleton around the phone. It may take couple days when you need to adjust the rope a couple millimeters here and there, but after that it will stay firmly in place.
