Why do people wear phone necklace cases?

When I walk around Venice, California with my phone necklace, people often stop me to ask about my phone strap and why I wear it. The feedback I get is usually very positive and I hear all kinds of suggestions for using a cell phone necklace. I thought I'd lay out my favorite reasons that I have heard over the past weeks, to show why you want to get your hands on one...

1) No pockets? Small pockets? No problem when you have a phone necklace!

One of my personal favorite reasons to get a phone necklace case with a strap attached to it is that you’re not always wearing clothes with pockets big enough to hold your phone. Especially the iPhone X Max, 8 Plus or 11 Pro Max are pretty big, and can be hard to pocket. We’ve all done it- forcing smartphones into small pockets, squeezing them to your hip, or just giving up and holding them in your hands. A phone necklace solves this problem. With Keebos, you'll be handsfree = stressfree.

2) Phone Necklaces Are Great for Festivals

Have you or a friend ever lost your phone at a festival? Same here--what a nightmare! Phone necklaces with an adjustable strap are the perfect accessory for festivals such as Stagecoach, Coachella, EDC, Lollapalooza or South by Southwest. At festivals, you don’t want to carry a bulky bag, your fresh outfit lacks pockets, and you need quick access to your phone to capture those once-in-a-lifetime snaps and videos.

3) Travel with Ease - Keep Your Phone and Cards in One Place

Whether you are at the airport, on a bus, metro, on a hike, or in a museum, you’ll want to have your phone close and accessible most of the time. Many travelers rely heavily on their smartphone when out and about. Whether it be for storing/displaying tickets, finding a hotel, taking pictures, checking google maps, finding a great restaurant, listening to music, translating a foreign language, playing a game, calling an Uber or taxi, or calling a loved one, travelers need their phones close at hand for all sorts of reasons. But be careful in less safe areas when your phone is visible. In that case, you also shouldn’t put all your cards in the case cardholder. I personally love traveling with my phone case necklace, it helps me stay organized.

4) Keebos Are the Perfect Dog-Walking Accessory

Often, when you walk your dog you wear sweatpants or other comfortable, casual outfits without big pockets. You typically have one hand on the leash and the other on your phone, meaning no room for coffee or water. Plus, if your pooch suddenly decides to chase a squirrel or another dog, you could drop your phone. Keebos iPhone crossbody case takes care of these issues: Your iPhone necklace will catch your phone if you ever drop it, and you can make sure your dog is safe.

5) You’re a Mom - Keep Your Hands Free

Anyone raising kids knows that kids keep your hands full with never-ending picking up toys, cleaning, snack prep, picking up your screaming kid, and all the other fun things that come with parenting... At the same time, you also want to make sure to snap cute moments, like their first steps. With the strap, your phone will be readily accessible. One of the most interesting use cases I’ve seen is a little girl watching Youtube videos while being carried by her mom. If she had dropped her mom’s phone, the necklace strap would have kept the phone from falling. We've put together all the reasons for moms to own a phone necklace on our blog here.

7) Keebos Phone Necklaces Keep You Mobile on Scooters and Bikes

Have you ever tried riding an electric scooter while recording a story on your phone? If not, please don’t ever try it. If you have, I’ll admit--I made the same mistake. Not only is it really hard to do, it's also very scary. With a necklace for cell phone, it’s easier to carry your phone while riding a bike, scooter or even a skateboard. Just please be careful!

I love my Abbot Kinney Keebos!! My #1 reason for the iPhone necklace is actually going to the gym and going on runs. I just pull the ends to make the strap a bit tighter than when I normally wear it and I’m good to go. Honestly, an amazing idea to have the strap attached to the case!


Hey Becky! Thanks for asking about the pocket on the back of the keebos phone case. After placing your credit cards and cash into the pocket on the back of the case, you just pull the stretchy top material of the pocket over the cards and now everything is sealed and safe :) Please let us know if you have any other questions. You can see it on the product pictures here: https://keebos.com/collections/products-iphone-necklaces/products/iphone-necklace-sunset
