  • 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 XS Max - $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 one 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

Great, with like a single quirk

I had the 7+ case, and loved how the leather wrapped all the way around the edge, and up to the front. However, that case lacked some reinforcement around the port/speaker openings, such that It broke.

This case does solve that problem! I must say though, I do miss the leather wrapping all the way to the front. The rubberized surround is nice though, and a bit more substantial. However, the point at which the leather meets the rubber is just not as polished. I can't speak to how tough that may be to manufacture, but it's just not a super clean edge/transition.

Having said all that, I'd buy it again :) ... and it'll be one of the offerings I check out for the next phone, etc.

Amazing leather case

The leather is so soft and subtle, and the sides of the case are very strong and you never feel scared dropping your phone. The look is awesome and will only get better with time.
