Secrid rose to prominence with their Cardprotector, a design award winner that kept cards from breaking and preventing unauthorized RFID/NFC scanning. Those same features are at the core of the Cardslide, but with some big upgrades. Not only does the high-quality aluminum casing keep your cards protected, but with one movement they slide out in overlapping sequence for easy retrieval. It can hold up to six cards, or use the space for notes, coins, and keys instead. Either way, the Cardslide is tough and durable yet lightweight.

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.
