Nomad’s latest collection of cases arrive with the usual blend of premium materials to complement Apple’s new iPhone 13 while introducing some entirely new inclusions along the way. For starters, there’s the signature Horween leather build with pairs with some added TPE in the bumper for a fusion of stylish form and uncompromising function.

Available in four different actual form factors, there’s a model for each of the new iPhone 13 series handsets. That’s alongside being able to choose between three color offerings on the Modern Leather Case, or two styles from the Leather Folio. Of course, each of them all rock MagSafe compatibility to round out the package as well. But how do they fare at the starting $60 price tags? Let’s dive in.

Here’s a closer look at the spec sheet:

  • Rustic Brown Horween leather from the USA
  • Develops a rugged patina
  • 3 card slots
  • 1 cash slot
  • 10-foot drop protection
  • Works with MagSafe
  • Wireless charging compatible
  • Dual lanyard attachment points

9to5Toys’ Take

Nomad has long been one of our favorite accessory makers for all things Apple, and that trend continues with its latest leather iPhone 13 cases. It shouldn’t be too shocking for me to report that its newest iterations rock the usual build quality, which is to say nothing but top notch. Both the Modern Leather and Leather Folio cases feel good in the hand and don’t add too much bulk to the package.
