Living an active lifestyle doesn't have to mean protecting your iPhone with an unsightly, thick case. Nomad's Active Rugged option uses a DuPont polycarbonate frame, rubber TPE bumper, and microfiber lining to swaddle and protect your device. Its back, meanwhile, is covered in naturally-tanned water-resistant leather from Heinen in Germany. It's both more sophisticated than most plastic options and more resistant to scratches and scuffs than typical leather. The case is fully Qi-compatible for wireless charging, has a thick bumper to protect against drops up to 6 feet, and has reinforced speaker ports that double as lanyard attachment points.
