Review: Nomad's Leather Folio Wallet Case for iPhone

Who says luxury has to cost a fortune? The Leather Folio Wallet case ($49.95) from Nomad uses Horween tanned leather (from the USA) and it gets more attractive as it develops a nice patina over time. It feels comfortable and luxurious and will make you want to reach for your phone whenever it rings.

Namad offers the folio case in a dark brown or midnight blue both of which look great; but it might be nice to have more choices, including red or black. The case includes slots for between three to six ID cards or credit cards. It offers decent protection and is reasonably priced.


  • Strong, tanned leather that ages well
  • Slots for ID, credit cards
