Nomad Leather Case for iPhone 6/6S – A Quick Review

Distinctive iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but there are some covers that truly stand out. The Nomad Leather Case for iPhone 6/6S is both elegant and professional and fits conveniently to the phone without much prodding.

It also does not leave any room for dirt or dust to seep between the edge of the case and the phone itself (a pet peeve of mine).

The case is crafted from brushed horween leather, which holds up well to constant wear and the elements. I was initially concerned that it would scuff easily or become damaged if exposed to the elements like rain, but that has not been the case.

In fact, a few scuffs on the leather could actually give it a bit of character, but you really have to try hard to scratch the case. Microfiber keeps it from getting easily scratched. Nomad says that the leather was crafted so that it ages over time, but with technology, it is unlikely someone would have the same phone for more than a few years anyway.

Still, the leather intentionally darkens and becomes more aged even with just a few months.

An iPhone case should be protective in the event of a fall, and the durable casing and 360-degree edge protection of this case do just that. It wraps around the front of the phone just enough to keep the screen protected from cracking if it were to fall on its face. The cushioned corners provide a buffer should you drop the phone on its side.

The openings for the camera lens and control switches on the side are perfectly sized, and the charging port opening at the bottom of the case is large enough to support multiple types of cables and cords.

The Nomad leather case is the perfect accessory for on-the-go executives that want to present a professional and stylish image. It retails on the Nomad website for $40 in a variety of colors and for various iPhone models and is also available on Amazon.
