Nomad has up to date its lineup of rugged leather-based Iphone instances for the Iphone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Professional Max, and 12 mini with the substantially-predicted addition of assist for Apple’s MagSafe charging common.
At $59.95 for the normal scenario or $79.95 for the folio-design and style a single, the Nomad circumstances aren’t more cost-effective than, say, Apple’s formal leather MagSafe conditions. In simple fact, they are really $10 more than Nomad’s authentic line of Apple iphone 12 instances, which look nearly equivalent from the exterior. (The new MagSafe cases will change the older designs after stock runs out, the firm states.)
But the Nomad scenarios are a lot more solidly set with each other than Apple’s individual choices. As the “rugged” in the identify suggests, the Nomad models attribute a plastic shell and rubber body that claims to guard the cell phone against drops from up to 10 feet. That safety does appear at a value, however: only the back of the case is actually included with leather-based (which is the similar Horween leather that Nomad employs on its other solutions). In 2017, my colleague Dan Seifert claimed the Apple iphone X edition of the case “feels far more like a leather-based pores and skin on prime of a rubber case than a full leather practical experience.”
The typical Rugged Leather case is offered in three shades: black, brown, and natural leather-based, though the Rugged Folio circumstance arrives in black and brown. Equally versions are obtainable to buy right now from Nomad’s web-site.
