Nomad has up to date its lineup of rugged leather iPhone cases for the iPhone 12, 12 Professional, 12 Professional Max, and 12 mini with the much-anticipated addition of assist for Apple’s MagSafe charging normal.
At $59.95 for the regular case or $79.95 for the folio-style one, the Nomad instances aren’t cheaper than, say, Apple’s official leather MagSafe cases. In truth, they’re truly $10 greater than Nomad’s original line of iPhone 12 cases, which look nearly an identical from the skin. (The brand new MagSafe instances will substitute the older fashions as soon as inventory runs out, the corporate says.)
However the Nomad instances are extra solidly put collectively than Apple’s personal choices. Because the “rugged” within the title suggests, the Nomad fashions characteristic a plastic shell and rubber body that guarantees to guard the cellphone in opposition to drops from as much as 10 ft. That safety does come at a price, although: solely the again of the case is definitely coated with leather-based (which is similar Horween leather-based that Nomad makes use of on its other products). In 2017, my colleague Dan Seifert stated the iPhone X version of the case “feels extra like a leather-based pores and skin on prime of a rubber case than a full leather-based expertise.”
The usual Rugged Leather-based case is offered in three colours: black, brown, and pure leather-based, whereas the Rugged Folio case is available in black and brown. Each fashions can be found to order as we speak from Nomad’s web site.
