  • 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.

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.

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

The Modern Folio

All the storage of a traditional folio with the protection of a Rugged Case. The Rugged Folio uses the same construction as the other cases in our rugged line but adds storage for up to six cards and cash.

6ft Drop Protection

Rugged Folio is designed for maximum protection.

Rugged Folio offers the protection of modern polycarbonate and the classic look of traditional leather.

Thin & 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 ensures that you can enjoy the beautiful look of leather without worrying about damage to your phone.

Great quality and looks, but not perfect.

The rugged folio for the iPhone XS Max is a good looking and great quality cover for your iPhone. For me, it failed in 2 (related) areas:

1. It has no magnetic clip or built-in magnet. This means that when you have a few cards in the wallet, the front cover will point up and no longer sit nice and flat on top of your phone. This looks messy.

2. The lack of magnetic closure also means it does not lock your phone and turn your display off when you close the wallet. The original Apple folio does this well, but the Nomad does not. For me that was a deal breaker. I want to not have to worry about accidentily pressing buttons on my display and want the screen to turn off (and thus save power) when not in use.

This might not be important to you, in which case this product can be recommended.

Confusing orderering

Promised one delivery date (on time), then told delayed for a month or so, then after I tried to cancel order, it was suddenly sent. Bad communication on all of this. Product is just ok.

Beautiful!

Bought it for the better half's new I phone. Fits perfectly, cable fits no problem, generous slots for cards and leather is wonderful to look at and feel! Well done!

Good case but needs additional improvements

Pros;

Beautiful leather case

Precision fit

Some drop protection

Grippy

Excellent scratch protection (in pocket or purse)

Bottom edge protected

Cons;

No speaker cut out to use when answering phone with flap closed

Flap not perfectly aligned when closed (could get better as broken in with age)

Covers the camera and rear speaker when open so it must dangle to take a picture (common to most folios). Could be improved with a more flexible hinge like Apples folio

Con’s don’t really offset pro’s so I still recommend it, just make an informed decision

Sturdy and elegant

Sturdy and elegant folio I finally can carry everywhere with the confidence that my iPhone XS Max is well safe and secured. The quality of the Horween leather constantly reminds me that it is a quality made folio. You cannot go wrong choosing this particular folio over others.
