The iPhone XS and iPhone X have the same dimensions. We designed this case to fit both phones; however, Apple slightly moved the position of the camera on the iPhone XS. This has caused our case to have a slight misalignment around the camera. We are releasing a new version this case to have a perfect fit for the iPhone XS camera, which will be shipping in late November. If you don't mind the slight misalignment as shown above and want this case as fast as possible, we recommend ordering the iPhone X version.

      • The iPhone X Version:
        • This case fits on both the iPhone XS and iPhone X
        • There is about a 1mm misalignment around the camera on the iPhone XS
        • The cameras on both iPhones work as designed, there is no functionality issue with this case
        • Your iPhone XS will not incur any damage with the iPhone X version of this case, the issue is purely aesthetic

  • Will the leather change over time?
    Our Horween leather is vegetable-tanned, imbued with natural waxes and oils, and the surface is not sprayed with a synthetic sealant, allowing it to develop a beautiful patina. For best care, use a quality leather conditioner. Learn more
  • How are our cases different from other leather cases?
    The Horween leather used in our cases is made in the traditional style dating back to 1905. Most leathers use synthetic tanning chemicals, synthetic dyes, spray paints and spray sealants to make a "perfect" surface. We don't think modern leathers are perfect. After so many synthetic treatments, it is hardly leather at all. We love real, old style American leather.
  • Will the leather scratch?
    Designed with American leather that will scuff and mark. If you always want a perfect finish, this is not the case for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina, this is absolutely the case for you.

Rugged Case

iPhone X / XS - $44.95

Horween Leather

We source this leather from the renowned Horween Leather Co. of Chicago, one of America’s oldest tanneries. Over time, the raw, vegetable tanned leather will patina, developing a look that is exclusively yours. From day 1 to 100, your case will weather but not wear out, creating a handsome, rich character unique to you.

Premium Materials

Supple, yet durable, Horween leather combined with a sleek rubber bumper around the edges.

33% Thinner

Thinner construction gives the case less bulk and a slimmer profile, allowing for greater portability than any of our previous designs.

Wireless Charging

Our cases are Qi compatible with Nomad wireless chargers and other devices.

Ultra Thin, Yet Rugged

We've taken the same elegant design of our prior rugged cases and refined it to be 33% thinner, while still offering the durability you need. Our minimalist design still offers maximal protection.

6ft Drop Protection

Protecting your phone from damage is a case's primary job. The new Rugged Case is equipped to protect against drops up to 6ft, keeping your iPhone safe from unexpected tumbles.

Built to Last

We strive for classy, minimalist designs in all our products, but never compromise on durability. A full rubber frame and wrap-around TPE bumper ensure you can enjoy the beautiful look of leather without worrying about damage to your phone.

Made for All New iPhones

Designed from the start for all new iPhones. Perfect fit, easy installation, and wireless charging compatible. Available for iPhone XR, iPhone X / XS, and iPhone XS Max
