  • We're going to show you today all the new products  that Bandolier has come out in the last year  

  • and -- well, some of them, they've been out but other  things have been recent products that actually are very innovative

  • and I've been really excited about their products every time I get a newsletter from them

  • because last year, I shot around this time and I showed in the video a bunch of their cases and straps

  • but this year, there's even more accessories

  • so we're going to kind of go into detail some of the accessories that they have come out with.

  • Originally, this is what we got.

  • This is the regular Bandolier case and now they have it not just for the iPhone, but several other manufacturers too like Samsung.

  • If you go online to their site at bandelierstyle.com, you'll see that they go by the phone size

  • so make sure you check that to see if they have the style for you.

  • And this is the most basic one. It's just the case with this snap cover in the back

  • and this is what holds your cards and for us, it usually holds about three cards.

  • You could go four, but to me, that's pushing it.

  • But yeah, this has been great. We use this every day. It's such an essential for us.

  • I just upgraded to the new iPhone 12

  • and if you're worried about Bandolier -- if you're getting a new phone and you have a previous model with a Bandolier case,

  • don't worry, they are on top of new designs coming out.

  • As soon as the iPhone announced that they were having new devices coming out -- new phones coming out,

  • Bandolier already had a newsletter going out saying they're going to have the new cases for that ready.

  • If you're not familiar with Bandolier, this is pretty much their standard case.

  • It fits perfectly around your phone

  • and then there are two attachments down here  that holds a strap that is removable

  • so if you don't want to have the strap, you can use this phone without the strap

  • but I always keep the strap on because I have the phone wrapped around me at all times  

  • and then, the back of them all of them have some sort  of compartment to put your cards and  

  • typically, like Crystal said, it fits about two to three cards

  • and this was their very original design

  • and they have since changed.

  • They have different kinds and you can still buy the original

  • but now they have one where it opens up this  way and I can fit about three or four cards in here.

  • right now I have three and then I have a receipt in here.

  • Also if you're wondering if it's hard to remove these -- the phones from the case, it's not.

  • it is pretty simple to remove

  • like that's how easily I was able to remove it.

  • In the beginning, when they first had these phones, the cases were kind of difficult to remove

  • so if you were one of those buyers and then you were put off by that, don't worry, since then, they have remodeled

  • and have really taken people's critiques on the cases  and they've made it so much easier to take on and off.

  • So this is what they're known for is their iPhone cases and their straps

  • and this is all leather. It's genuine leather, so it's really good material.

  • You don't have to worry about it ripping because I know a lot of other products, if it's not leather, it tends to wear out pretty fast

  • because you're wearing this every day -- well, we are, so you want to have a really good durable product

  • and their products are very durable.

  • Yeah, so once you get your case, they usually come with their straps

  • and I think when you order it, it comes withspecific strap, right?

  • Yeah so there's different designs.

  • We're just used to -- we like wearing black because it matches everything

  • and Crystal really likes this gold chain

  • but they have a ton of different designs and colors and each case comes with a strap that matches the case.

  • But if you're like us and you're super fans, you're gonna start growing your collection.

  • We have numerous straps and you can also buy straps individually

  • So say you have this case and you're kind of tired of the black strap,

  • you can go online and you can just buy this chain separately or a different design

  • and they're constantly putting out new designs, so definitely sign up for their newsletter

  • because that's what I did and that's how I know the new designs are always coming out.

  • This one that I have is a little bit thicker than their original straps

  • because the stripes actually used to be thinner and right now the style is getting more popular to have thicker straps.

  • I'm a fan of the thicker straps.

  • This is kind of like their medium thickness and this is also adjustable. It does have little holes there.

  • Not too much of an adjustment, but if you want it a little bit shorter, you can make these straps shorter.

  • We were just talking about how you can buy straps individually

  • so they recently came out with these utility lines.

  • This is my strap that I could not wait for it to come back on sale

  • because when they first launched this, it sold out immediately within a day

  • and I was like, 'Oh shoot, I should have bought it right away.'

  • This is called the Billy Strap, by the way,

  • and then they launched it a second time and it sold out again.

  • Third time, I finally got it and now I feel like you can probably get on there now and get this if you want it, but this is amazing.

  • This you just buy -- they sell just the strap itself and

  • so I attach it to my phone here...

  • I feel like a warrior when I wear this

  • but I kept so many things in here on our road trip.

  • I kept hand sanitizers, soap, liquid soap...

  • and these came in so handy at rest stops when some bathrooms that didn't have soaps, I didn't have to go without not touching -- I mean without washing my hands.

  • Oh, more hand sanitizer.

  • I have lip gloss in there...

  • and on the back here, I typically would put my mask

  • and yep, there's a mask.

  • The mask is still in there.

  • I also stashed some cash in here too.

  • This has been my go-to all summer and I'm so in love with this Billy Strap

  • and Crystal got something similar in the line and this is what you can buy separately too.

  • Hers is a little bit more girly than the one I got. Hahaha.

  • Yeah, so this is a heart pouch one.

  • I don't know, I just really thought it was cute so I wanted to get one of these

  • so like Candy, you can store extra things with you while you have your phone around your body

  • and again, I just took off my gold strap -- my gold chain strap,

  • and then you can just put this on -- so this is a thicker strap.

  • I like this thickness.

  • So this is the other one, so it's a little -- it's like half of that.

  • And then the other one, the thinnest one is half of this.

  • But this one is my favorite thickness right now.

  • Yeah, I really wanted to get this so that I can carry some extra things with me while I have my phone still wrapped around me  

  • and I think it's a pretty good size in here.

  • You can put in some cash, some extra cards, lip gloss, lipstick, your car keys...

  • and you can also remove this.

  • So say you don't want to have that pouch one day...

  • If you don't want to have it, it hasclip up here and then you just have to remove this

  • and then it just slides out.

  • And then maybe you want to attach it to something else so you can just use this and...

  • or maybe you can even attach it to the side of your phone if you want to.

  • I have another thing here which I'll show you in a little  bit where you could use that and attach it to something.

  • That's one thing I like about their products is that you can mix and match.

  • Once you have the case and one strapyou can start buying other straps and other accessories to go with it.

  • This strap, the nylon strap, is something really different that they've brought out this year  

  • and I was really interested in trying this out because not only is this a strap for your phone,

  • which this is -- right here is where -- these are the two hooks here

  • the swivel hooks that go to your phone

  • this then -- actually, if you remove the buckles,

  • it turns into a belt!

  • I thought that was such a neat idea to make this into a belt and it's adjustable.

  • Then, if you want, you can take this and it doesn't have to wrap around you,

  • so you can just hold it like this if you want like while you're shopping or maybe like this

  • but you'll have like a matching belt...

  • I mean, you don't have to wear it like this and you could still put it in your purse if you want

  • but what I really like about this belt is it's easy to adjust and it's a nice buckle

  • and I actually have a trench coat that I think will really match this

  • and then if you see right here, there's like the little hook right here  

  • so like for example, Crystal's heart that she had

  • that's where I could mix and match and remove this and put it on here

  • or if I had keys that had a hook, I could put my keys on here.

  • So yeah, so many different uses with this design and you can just be really creative of the different ways of using this strap.

  • So you can still use it ascrossbody strap too?

  • Yeah, so if I um remove this

  • and put it back together...

  • so now, it can becross body strap.

  • So yeah, many different ways of using this strap.

  • Another version of the case that they have is this Folio Case.

  • A lot of the times, when we wear our Bandoliers, we get  a lot of compliments but then they also ask us

  • 'Aren't you afraid that your phone's going to get scratched because it's out in the open?'  

  • Which, by the way, it's never shattered or I've never had any issues.

  • No, we've had no problems. I mean, as you can tell, my phone is spic and span clean.

  • So nothing has been happening to my phone and everything is fine

  • but we do get that questionlot, like 'Aren't you afraid of your phone...'

  • I get it. I understand why people ask that question.

  • I get it too. So now ,they have this Folio Case.

  • So, with --- I'm just going to take this out real quick

  • and then put this in here

  • so now, the front is covered so you don't have to worry about that problem

  • and so this is a magnetic closure here too

  • and you do look more sophisticated -- hahaha.

  • You look business-y.

  • Let me just see what I got.

  • Hahaha!

  • and then in the back is the pouch where you can put your cards still.

  • So it's the same functionality except it just has a cover in the front.

  • My only thing with this is that it makes it a little bit harder to take photos.

  • Well, not like this, but if I want to take it horizontally, which I do sometimes to take videos, it is a little bit harder to shoot this way.

  • Or if I'm just like relaxing on my bed, I feel like it's extra weight to carry

  • so I don't feel as lax looking at my phone, but those are just little issues.

  • If you really want to protect your phone, then this is the way to go.

  • You know what I think this is a good use for? Now that I'm thinking about it.

  • If you don't want -- let's say you have an outfit on or you just have other things going on that you don't want to wear your phone

  • and you want to put your phone in your purse this is a great protector.

  • Yeah, that's true.

  • From stuff in your purse like hitting the phone.

  • The next items we're going to show you are accessories for your phone and one of my favorites this year has been this device stand.

  • It doesn't even look like a device stand. It's foldable, you can store this, you can carry it with you anywhere

  • but it is so useful, especially for people now who are working from home.

  • So this is what it looks like. It's always on my desk.

  • Any of the phones will fit on it without having to remove the case

  • and it's very durable and also you can have your phone charging while it's sitting on the stand and it's very flexible.

  • You can move it around.

  • I really like this device, or actually stand, and I also like that it's foldable.

  • When we went on our road trip, I was able to take this with me  and just throw it in my bag and it didn't take up that much room at all.

  • The next thing that we have are these expandable pouches.  

  • They have different sizes where it's likeslim pouch and a bigger pouch.

  • This is probably the biggest pouch that they have for this

  • and they have them in different shapes as well. It's not just a rectangle.

  • They have a round one, they have the heart one...

  • so you can go all different kinds of ways

  • and then you can put a lot more things in here

  • and of course, you attach it to the hooks on your Bandolier

  • and I just put it behind my phone so it kind of looks like this.

  • I try not to put too much stuff in here though because it does get bulky

  • and then it kind of just looks weird.

  • Yeah, I have the slimmer version and when I don't have it attached to my phone, I actually just use it as a wallet.

  • So like on our road trips, I have that part in my book bag and that's where I put all my other miscellaneous cards,

  • like your health insurance card or AAA card...

  • stuff that I don't need to always have with me, I put in this pouch

  • when I'm on the road or when I'm not just running small errands.

  • I have one last item to show you and this is something that has  nothing to do with your iPhone.

  • They actually made a bag that can be used as a laptop purse or bag or for your iPad.

  • I actually have my iPad in here and there's also compartments in here

  • where you can put other miscellaneous things

  • so I have a mask... I feel like that's what everyone has these days is a mask

  • and in the back here is a zipper so you can put other miscellaneous things.

  • It's nice and slim. I like how it's just very simple and chic so it matches with anything really.

  • And of course, they made it so that you can remove the strap

  • so if I wanted to change it to like Crystal's gold strap

  • or if I wanted to put this strap, you can change out the straps.

  • The only thing I wish they did with this -- which I still love it -- is if there was some kind of clasp

  • like a magnetic clasp or a button in here.

  • If it could somehow shut it.

  • Yeah, because that's the only thing is that it's just open.

  • I mean, it's very -- I don't know, sometimes I'm just afraid when things...

  • You just want everything enclosed.

  • Yeah, hahaha.

  • But I just love the simplicity of it. It's nice and slim and chic.

  • See how it looks? Nice material.

  • And yeah, this is something that I'll probably use pretty often.

  • So that's all the items that we have, but they have so many more items online.

  • They even have like fanny packs. They even have stuff for men now.

  • If you haven't been there in a while on their site, definitely check them out because they've really expanded their line.

  • They've gotlot of new products out there and as always, their products are amazing.

  • They're really good quality and we've been fans for years now.

  • And it's not just black that they have either.

  • I know we're just big fans of black.

  • We're just showing black but they have so many different  colors -- they have like pink, blue... I mean, you name it, they have it.

  • We hope this review helped you out.
