  • 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.

I'm quite impressed as a design snob/freak.

I think this product is fantastic and I'm quite impressed with how and what you get out of it. I'd say for the price you get a high-quality product that exudes prestige, the leather is pristine and I can already tell this thing is going to last me a majority of the life of the phone. If I was to add some side comments, I would like there to be more utility functions to the cover. Such as a more rigid stand or something to lock in place so that the phone can stand sturdy while watching videos without holding. Secondly, Nomad suggests a screen protector prevents micro scratches from your cards on your screen. I think a small flap that comes back over the top of the cards with the same material would be a simple fix, as Apple has put a stupidly huge amount of money into making the screen as immersive as possible and putting a screen protector on the device pretty much nullifies all of that effort. finally, the volume buttons are quite difficult to find when the cover is closed on the device so you get to play doctor and find the little bumps underneath the leather to diagnose your volume issue. To have a little etching that enables you to quickly find them I think would be a subtle but useful addition, that would not affect the overall aesthetic. All in all, this is my first Nomad product and my overall experience with the company has been quite great, the website design, the craftsmanship, and quality have all really impressed me. Looking forward to getting inspired and…

Very Nice Cover/case

This is a very handy case for my new iPhone. The only thing I didn't think of was the cover gets in the way of the camera lens when you fold it open. Not a big deal, just have to leave it open. Well worth the money

Perfect, great looking case

Perfect case for nights I’m going out and don’t want to bring a wallet along with me, but still have a couple cards, my license, and a bit of cash. Looks great, wearing great, fits my phone perfectly. Not bulky.
