Nomad’s latest collection of cases comes with the usual mix of premium materials to complement Apple’s new iPhone 13, and along the way introduced some brand new accessories. For starters, there is the distinctive Horween leather made in pairs with the addition of TPE in the bumper to blend elegant form and uncompromising function.
Available in four different actual forms, there is a model for each of the new iPhone 13 series phones. This is in addition to the fact that you can choose between three color offers on a modern leather case or two styles made of leather foil. Of course, they all support MagSafe compatibility to complete the package. But how are they doing at the start $ 60 price tags? Let’s dive.
Here is a more detailed overview of the specifications:
- Rustic brown leather Horween from the USA
- Develops a rough patina
- 3 card slots
- 1 cash slot
- 10-foot fall protection
- Works with MagSafe
- Compatible with wireless charging
- Double points for attaching the tape
Nomad has long been one of our favorite accessories manufacturers for all things Apple, and that trend continues with the latest leather cases for the iPhone 13. It shouldn’t be too shocking for me to report that its latest iterations hold the usual build quality, which is to say just top notch. Both modern leather and leather cases feel good in the hand and don’t add too much weight to the package.
Even so, they are by no means the thinnest cases nearby, and that’s a good thing. The construction provides what I can only describe as the best of both worlds in terms of form and function. Not only do they look great with Horween skin, but Nomad supports them with 10-foot fall protection. Although I don’t intend to throw the iPhone 13 out of the window on the second floor, there was already one opportunity while I was outside and that’s why I’m glad my phone came out undamaged after the rollover.
For everything that has remained the same, this time there are a few new adjustments. The Nomad has, of course, refreshed the position of the buttons and the protrusion of the camera on its latest leather MagSafe cases that accompany the iPhone 13 redesign. This continues in two more areas, the most prominent of which is the unique new feature of the digital business card.
Relying on NFC, you can customize the built-in chip to automatically open the landing page of social media accounts and other information from another device. I used it a bit last weekend and it’s pretty great. Speaking of new accessories, there are a couple of drawstring accessories at the bottom of the case. They’re built into the speaker grille section and allow you to attach a variety of accessories to the iPhone 13, including those old school charms and probably more faithful real tapes.
At the end of the day, Nomad didn’t adjust too much around its new leather cases for the iPhone 13 MagSafe. Of course, there’s also a refreshed design for the new camera, as well as NFC features. But the overall fit and feel is carried over from previous generation versions. Much like Apple did on smartphones themselves.
There is really no need to invent points. The nomad may follow if it is not broken, do not repair it saying, and this time it is especially true. And with good reason, this remains my choice for a leather holster and definitely justifies the price.
