    This case WILL fail and drop your phone.

    I bought this case 9 months ago. I baby my phone so it has never been dropped or subjected to any harsh conditions. On day, pulling this case out of my coat pocket, my phone came flying out and tumbled to the ground resulting in damage to the outside. How did this happen? Because the thin, poor-quality plastic Nomad used had failed and a corner of the case had broken off, allowing the phone to slip free. Upon closer inspection I saw that ALL FOUR CORNERS had cracked and failed. So, I paid $50 to use a case for 9 months which eventually dropped my phone onto the ground. I also noticed that the leather they use is actually an extremely thin leather veneer covering a clear plastic backing. Hmmm... You expect a case to last AT LEAST the 2 years between carrier upgrades, right? Not this one. Even worse, it will fail in a way that endangers your phone, allowing it to fly free at a moments notice. It's too bad, the idea is excellent but the execution is let down by extremely poor quality materials.

      The Nomad Team

      Hi Tesseract2112,
      I'm really sorry to hear about your Folio Case and how it failed you! That sounds extremely frustrating, especially since Nomad cases are designed with a rugged lifestyle in mind. It sounds like the plastic part of your case that holds the phone was not treated correctly in manufacturing, causing your case to become overly brittle and easily cracked.
      I would like to help resolve this issue and send you a brand new (non-defective) replacement case under warranty. We offer a 2 year warranty on all of our cases. If you are interested in receiving a replacement, please send an email over to support@hellonomad.com and someone on our support team will take care of you. Again, I'm sorry that this happened and I hope that we can help make it right! nomadgoods

    Quality Wallet Case - Brown, Not Saddle

    First, the color out of the box is actually a medium brown, not the lighter saddle color on the box. Perfect for me, maight be disappointing to someone expecting light brown. I've had it for two weeks and the aging process is working - the leather is high quality. I used a little leather conditioner on it and that did darken the leather a little, but that is a look I want. Holds three cards securely. I am not willing to put any more than that in there. The money pocket behind the cards will keep a couple buisness cards plus an additional card. I rarely carry cash though I could without any problem. There are no magnets on the cover. But I haven't found the loose cover to be an issue with the number of cards I carry. It took me about a half a minute to adjust to taking pictures with the flap open - again not a big deal to me. Someone else wrote in a review that it actually helped stabilize the camera a bit and I've found that to be true for me too. From a protection standpoint, it fits snugly in the hard plastic saddle. The case itself may absorb some punishment, but it isn't in the same class as the OtterBox, Speck, and others with drop ratings. However, the leather is quality and tough. I've dropped it from about 3ft onto a hardwood floor and there was no visible damage to the case or phone. Overall, I feel it's a very quality product that will protect my phone while the look keeps developing more and more character

    Nomad - Folio Wallet Case For Apple® Iphone® 7 Plu

    I was looking for a case for my phone which is an iPhone 6 Plus, I prefer ones that have a phone glass cover not only for privacy but also for glass protection. I really like how this one is made and has 3 slots inside the case for storing business cards, id or credit cards, although I only store business cards there. I had a Tumi case before but I found that the lower right corner of the case was weak and broke off and then didn't protect my phone well. this one is built out of really rigid plastic and could not even bend it with my finger at all. Very well made leather cover and fine white stitching that gives it a nice aesthetic look. The cover is very firm and thick and rigid as well so protects the face nicely. The best part I find is this particular case has a nice extended back so that the corners are protected to, so if you drop it, the back of the case would be the first area to take the impact not the plastic corners that protect the phone. I would recommend this to anyone looking for these types of features. It was only 29 dollars. Good buy!

    Just what I needed

    There's a million folio wallet style cases for iPhones out there, and this one would earn 4 stars easily for the quality thick real leather, straight stitching, etc.... What REALLY made this one stand out, to me, is the minimalistic design, and the fact that it doesn't utilize unnecessary magnets. Too often these billfold style cases have magnetic flaps, or magnets in the edges, or some other magnetic trick to keep the flap closed on cases whose designs don't really need it. As someone who worries about the effect magnets have on the internals of my phone, it gets really annoying. So far, this Nomad case is the only one I've found that eschews those unnecessary closures.

    Nomad has some of the best leather products. This is my 3rd Nomad product, My first was for the iPhone 6s plus, second for my apple watch series 2, and now my new iPhone 7plus. I believe they have the strongest leather when it comes to those types of accessories. I love my electronics and i want a case to protect my investment. The amount of time i dropped my phone is a little scary. I'm surprised how well they hold up. Also I love how the cases have a wallet feature. I honesty hate big bulky wallets and this helps solve this problem, I usually keep all of my credit cards and other payment forms on my apple wallet, but I still need my ID, boater license, and cash. One down fall is that i wish it had a strap, like one to hold the wallet flap from flying open.

    Best wallet folio out there

    I really liked this. Leather was nice except it scratched really easy but I think that's how it's supposed to be. It's supposed to age and get darker. But I prefer something that didn't do that. Some people like that worn in/ aged look, I don't. I think it's just a matter of preference. It's made really well though. Materials used are of high quality. Made my phone thicker though. I wanted a cover for my phone. However I use my phone for running so it didn't make sense to cover the front of my phone. Again, a matter of preference. That's the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I didn't really use the pockets for cards. Protects good too. I dropped my phone and no scratches whatsoever. I highly recommend this case to someone who wants a wallet folio.

    I'm a bit of a compulsive iPhone case buyer. Each time I buy one, it's almost just right but some detail ends up bothering me. Often the balance between protection and sleekness is the hard one to find. But with this Folio Wallet case I've hit my sweet spot. With this case holding my cards and enough room for a bit of cash (not to mention ApplePay which I use more and more often), I have stopped carrying a separate wallet, and it does streamline me. It also protects the screen but without the irritation of something applied to the glass (I always ended up peeling it off and Zagg has made a lot of money off of me). The leather is just right for my taste. Rugged but not bulky.

    Nomad leather case for new iPhone is wonderful

    After long study of all BestBuy iPhone 7 plus cases I picked this one. I wanted a covered case, as I detest screen covers. I wanted a sturdy case, and a pretty one. This Nomad leather case hit all three perfectly. It is a little bit heavier than a plastic case, but I don't have to worry about accidents, dropping it on my concrete floors, etc. The screen and back are totally protected from scratching. There is room inside for a few credit cards and for folded money. The leather is durable and feels good to my hands. You can't go wrong with this case.

    Love this new case I got. I don't plan on dropping my phone from 10' up or anything. Typically when I drop it, it's out of my pocket from sitting down and I believe this case will protect it just fine. Since I carry both a personal and work phone, I wanted to minimize having a wallet as well and this fit the (dollar) bill! Leather is QUALITY and I have room for 6 cards/license, some case, and a couple rewards cards as well. I"ve this for a couple weeks and it's already wearing well giving it a more distressed/older leather look. Fits the phone great also! No wiggle room.

    My husband loves these. This was his first pick when he got his new iPhone. He wanted this first because he had one with his prior phone. it ages well and always looks good. It protects the phone well (especially since he is one of those people that doesn't like to. have screen protectors on the phone). It is nice to have a credit/debit/gift card handy or your license/sam's club card ready and available as quickly as you can grab your phone - as opposed to having to dig through your wallet. Very nice - American leather which is a double plus for him. :)

    I have had my case for a few months now and it is very well crafted, and has held together better then other cases I've had in the past. I have 9 cards crammed in it and it does not feel or look over filled. It has survived a few drops with no visible damage. It does seem to scratch easily but it gives it a worn look after awhile. only 4 stars because it does not stand up like my old wallet case. So you have to prop it up on stuff.

    I bought this for my girlfriend since she liked the same case that I had purchased in grey previously. She loves the case, the only issue that we can see would be the potential for the cards to rub against the screen and cause scratches. We both have screen protectors, but if you don't you may want to get another case or purchase a screen protector. The only other items that I don't like are the lack of a magnetic clasp to keep the flap in place and the lack of an earpiece cutout while on calls. Other than that, it's an awesome case.

    When I purchased a new phone, I quickly realized that I would have to buy a new case to compliment it. Initially, the 50+ choices to chose from felt overwhelming. After reviewing the product features for the Nomad Folio case, I realized that the quality was well worth the price. I've had my case for several weeks now and continue to enjoy the quality and functionality. I've had so many compliments on it that my fiancé decided to purchase the same one, but in a different color. I definitely give this case two thumbs up (5-stars).

    I bought this case to protect my new IPhone 7Plus. It fits nicely and looks great. I did notice one issue, which I finally figured out. When someone called me and I folded the case behind itself, the caller had a difficult time hearing me. It sounded very muffled. But when I kept the case opened, or even answered and then closed it fully, the caller could hear me perfectly. An odd quirk, but I do like the case, even using it to hold my driver's license and credit card, along with some cash instead of carrying a separate wallet.

    I got this new phone case when I got my new iPhone 7. I like the folder open teacher and the fact that I can slim down when I carried by putting my drivers license and a credit card inside. I've dropped the phone a couple times and had no damage to the leather case but the plastic that holds the phone and cracked on the corner. The phone doesn't dislodge but I know it's a weak point in the construction. More importantly, it protected the phone which is why I have the case to begin with.

    This is a great case. I love the color, card slots and the slot for bills. The case is holding up well so far in the few weeks that I've had it. I would give this case 5 stars if it had cut outs for the speaker when talking on the phone, the case featured a kickstand mode and if the case was more protective. Lastly, I can see that any cards placed in the case could potentially rub against the screen enough to cause scratching, but I'm not too concerned since I have a screen protector.

    I returned the case and bought a case elsewhere. With only three card slots and it being so basic as far as functions..it wasn’t worth it to me. Also one you get the cards in the case it was very bulky and didn’t close, which I’ve experienced before, but with only 3 card slots I thought it wouldn’t have that problem. I’m sure the leather would be fine and if 3 slots works for you and you don’t want the case to function as more..this will be a great case.

    I purchased this case for when I travel so I don't have to keep up with my wallet and my phone. It works really well. The phone is held securely and everything is covered; the ports and buttons are easy to get to. The wallet side holds up to 6 credit cards and cash & receipts in the pocket. I only used 3 credit cards because it got a little bulky; the space is there. I have the iPhone 7 Plus model. The iPhone 7 may hold less cards, I don't know. All in all, it works for what I needed.

    I had been looking at this phone case among others for quite some time and this one kept standing out to me. I finally decided to purchase this case and it has exceeded my expectations. The leather is great and I can hold up to 6 cards as well as some cash. If you decide to put 6 cards in the case it will get crammed but it can hold that. I usually just keep 3 and some cash and it is the best. Highly recommend this product and it has been nothing but awesome for me so far!

    This case is what my husband had on his iPhone 7 and he immediately wanted it again for his iPhone 8 plus. He loves the USA leather, the feel of the leather and the style. It held up great. The case does age with use but honestly we didn't see much. He doesn't use this during the week though as he works in machinery and grease so he uses a case that will wipe off easily and can be washed. Highly recommend. Would buy in multiple colors if available.
