    Quality leather portfolio wallet

    I gave this a 3 star rating, due to certain features it lacked to make it worthy of a 5 star rating. It does not possess the capability of standing in a upright position for hands off viewing. The cash slit inside is too small for bills to lay flat! I also, find it cumbersome to hold a phone conversation and hear clearly the other person speaking. Don’t know exactly why, maybe the case is causing some kind of interference. I usually wind up using the speaker in order to hear properly. That creates a privacy issue with the conversation. The actual case itself is made of high quality leather. I purchased the slate/gray, which is just the right color for me. I feel it should be able to withstand years of use due to the quality of the leather. The credit cards are held very secure in the 3 slots provided within the wallet. I don’t have any concerns with safety issues. I prefer that the closure of the wallet is as simple as folding it over. I do not like magnets or having to fiddle with any snaps. I feel that, if these areas I mentioned were improved upon, it would be definitely 5 stars.

    Great Quality, Unexpected Damage

    Posted
    idft460

    I've never put cases on my phone, but decided to give one a try when I bought my iPhone 7. I made my purchase based on the quality of this case (it's really nice) and the promise of consolidating my pocket contents into one. That part has been satisfying. I rarely need more than three cards with me at any time, and this case is perfect for that. A little cash might make it too thick for some. What was unexpected was how much damage was caused to my screen when I got some sand in my pocket with the phone in the case. The sand rubbed between the leather and the phone screen, leaving three rows of scratches across the width of the phone. My recommendation: Do not use this case without a screen protector. At $50, and considering the amount of damage, one should probably be included with the purchase. Also, avoid beaches, playgrounds, or any other location that might have sand. I would not purchase this product again.

    I got this case four months ago and was very happy until my phone fell on the ground. The screen cracked as soon as it hit the ground. This case will only be useful as a wallet and for its looks, other than that this will not protect your device from a simple fall, which should be the top job of any case. I had to spend $149 to get a new iPhone screen at apple. I hoped i would like this case but it's only four months and I'm looking for something which will protect my phone first and then allow me to store any cards/id.

    Best leather wallet for iphone 7

    Bought this leather wallet case for my new iphone 7, the leather quality of this case is superior and definitely not cheap. With time this case will not only mold to the form of the phone but will keep getting that premium quality leather feel. It also holds the phone very secure and will not slip out by any means, the bottem portion of the phone is open but the corners are protected, but i believe that if you get a fine wallet case your probably not jogging or dropping your phone continuously. This case is made for that business class look. Hope you enjoy it

    Garbage case, and Best Buy didn't stand behind it

    This case looks nice and functionally makes sense BUT it's junk. Absolute garbage. It did not hold up at all, even in light duty. The plastic bracket that holds the phone snapped while the phone was in the case. What's worse, after spending thousands of $$$ with Best Buy they didn't stand behind it. The young guy at the counter blew me off like I was wasting his time. "Sorry, its been longer than 15 days, you can try the manufacturer." Really?? Fail on the case. Fail on the customer service. SUPER BUMMED...waste of $50 and now no case.

    Sleek and Minimal

    Nomad is a very good description for this portfolio case because you're almost forced to only bring the essentials. The product description says you can fit up to 6 cards . . . if you want it to properly close, you're going to have to bring that number down to 4. Maybe with some time having 6, the leather will stretch and close, but the phone felt really bulky when I tried 6. That is my only negative comment though. The leather is very nice quality, smells great (if you like to take a sniff every now and then, just me? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯) and looks super sleek and profesh. Highly recommend for those trying to cut down on how much stuff they carry around with them.

    Compared to the other "wallet type" phone cases available in store, this one is by far my favorite. I wrecked my fiancé's Harley last weekend with my phone in this case in my back pocket while I slid across the pavement on my butt. Not only was my phone not damaged, but the leather and stitching on this case held up incredibly well!! The case was still usable but I figured for the price, I might as well snag a new one. It holds cards tight as I have never lost any cards out of it. it protects the screen and it is not too bulky in your hand when taking phone calls. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality wallet type phone case.

    If you choose this for instore pick up, i'd advise against it. Every store I went to that I tried to exchange this case was all scratched up on the leather because other customers wanted to test out the leather. It scuffs very easily but you should already know that about leather. You want it to have wear marks but you want to be the one that puts it on there. if you pick it up in store make sure it's not messed up before you leave. You can easily slide it out to see. It's not worth 40 bucks but it comes down to 9.99 from time to time.

    This is a great little phone case. Very nice quality leather case with sufficient room for ID, credit cards and cash. IPhone fits snuggly in the case, no concerns about it falling out. I drove away with it on the roof of my car, and it fell off and bounced a few times on the pavement. My IPhone was perfect, not a scratch on it! The leather case incurred a couple of little dings, but other than that everything was still in tact. The only modification I would make to this case, is to add some type of closure. Although, I have not found that to be completely necessary.

    I reviewed all product availability and usage before I purchased and asked my kids and store personel for help before purchasing and found that this product was exactly what was described, top quality and design. The leather ages nicely as leather does and my son uses the phone case as a wallet, so he has his college ID, Bus pass and drivers license in the side at all times. The case is ideal protection for his expensive ipone 7 as well. A real deal breaker. Wish I had purchased one if it only came for a 6s!

    I seem to have become a case-a-holic and find myself using different cases for different occasions now. This is a nice, leather folio type case with a couple of credit card slots. It is incredibly convenient if I don't want to carry my wallet and want my phone, id and perhaps a credit card or two and don't want to carry several items. The phone pops in and out easily but is secure when installed. The leather has a nice look and the construction looks like it will hold up well.

    So now days it seems that every store has a card of some sort. Between car keys, phone charger, wallet, and phone i decided for somethings to help simplfy. This product is classy and lightweight. It protects the screen and you can hold 10 cards or so. It gets more roomy with time. Only problem is the cash fold. It feels like the bills want to fall out and if you have any cards in it at the time the thing is like an overstuffed sandwich. So i just carry the cash in my pocket. Great product overall

    leather nice, plastic phone holder not

    Really liked the feel of this folio wallet and leather was very nice. The plastic case inside which holds the phone is not however. About 3-4 months after buying this, I dropped it once and the plastic holder broke. The phone will not stay in the wallet and now it is a useless $45 piece of leather. The company states the warranty only covers manufacturing defects, nothing else. I guess I will stick with something better and more durable, though less aesthetically pleasing, like Otterbox.

    This is my first wallet style phone case and thus far has shown to be durable and very nice to look at. It's real Leather so it will show some marks and gouges of you're hard on it like me. That's not a downside IMO, because that's what you get when you use REAL leather. The fact that the leather comes from Chicago was a plus to me as well. It holds your phone in tight and holds enough cards and cash for my day to day.

    Disappointed. But this case for my iPhone 7 so I could have kind of a wallet plus phone case all in one. Was kind of skeptical to spend this amount of money on a case as I should have been big case is less than a month old and looks as though it needs to be replace now. Sides and edges are Vietnam plus looks like it is coming loose where it f replace now. Sides and edges are you plus looks like it is coming loose where it folds

    Beautiful, but offers no protection

    Although beautifully made, it is extremely sensitive to external damage. My keys and wallet have scarred it so much, after three days, I stopped using it. I accidentally dropped it and my phone cracked... not a happy feeling. There is no protection, it’s just for looks, that is if you want to carry it in your hand 24/7 as it gets damaged too easily.

      The Nomad Team

      Hi there, I'm sorry to hear about the negative experience you've had with your Nomad Folio Case. I can completely understand and relate to that awful feeling when your phone cracks. I'm so sorry that happened to your phone while using your Nomad case. The Folio Case is more of a fashion case and provides less rugged protection than any of our other cases. This is something that we are activley trying to improve right now. It may be moot point now, but scratches to the leather are a natural occurance and will improve (become less noticeable) as the leather ages. They can also be buffed out a bit with a smooth cloth. If there's anything that our support team can do to help, please feel free to reach out to us at support@hellonomad.com. Thank you -Chloe nomadgoods

    High Quality Leather

    This case is made from high quality leather. As you use it more it shows the wear that is expected of older leather. The case has a unique look that makes it easy to find since all of my friends have bought these cases as well for their phones. It holds several cards and some cash. It does add a bit of thickness to the phone but that is expected when combining a wallet and phone case into one thing.

    Nice leather case, which protects phone pretty well and allows me to carry and couple of cards and some cash as needed. Leather is really nice looking as it ages. Had it for a few months and hoping it holds up as the seems along the edges are starting to wear out and I wonder what will happen if it continues. Thicker than I'm use to carrying around but I'm used to it now.

    The summary title is not an exaggeration. This case was amazing. Even after I bought a bigger phone, I loved this case so much I gave it to a close friend so he could enjoy it. Leather quality is too notch. After a short break in period, I was very said I couldn’t use it with my new phone. Well done Nomad!
