Rugged Case is a sleek and refined leather case that offers rugged protection for your iPhone. Built with a high-grade polycarbonate body, an all new internal shock absorption bumper, and a raised TPE bumper along the perimeter of the screen, Rugged Case provides maximum protection for your iPhone. Wrapped in supple Horween leather, Rugged Case will develop a patina with time and takes on a look as unique as you.
Our Horween leather is vegetable-tanned, imbued with natural waxes and oils, and the surface is not sprayed with a synthetic sealant, allowing it to develop a beautiful patina. For best care, use a quality leather conditioner. Learn more
How are our cases different from other leather cases?
The Horween leather used in our cases is made in the traditional style dating back to 1905. Most leathers use synthetic tanning chemicals, synthetic dyes, spray paints and spray sealants to make a "perfect" surface. We don't think modern leathers are perfect. After so many synthetic treatments, it is hardly leather at all. We love real, old style American leather.
Will the leather scratch?
Designed with American leather that will scuff and mark. If you always want a perfect finish, this is not the case for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina, this is absolutely the case for you.
Where can I attach a lanyard on Rugged Case?
There are two lanyard attachment points, both built into the reinforced speaker ports on the bottom edge of Rugged Case. We suggest our Wrist Strap.
How should I care for my case's leather?
Watch our instructional video below on caring for your leather. We recommend using leather conditioner made by Ashland Leather Co.
Does MagSafe work with Rugged Case?
Rugged Case with MagSafe charges at full speed. However, the magnetic connection is weaker with a case on, so MagSafe may not stay securely attached when picking up your phone.
The same Rugged Case that you know and love, combining high quality Horween leather with rugged protection. We have spent the last year meticulously refining Rugged Case and it now offers even greater protection than ever before.
We source this leather from the renowned Horween Leather Co. of Chicago, one of America’s oldest tanneries. Over time, the raw, vegetable tanned leather will patina, developing a look that is exclusively yours. From day one to 100, your case will weather but not wear out, creating a handsome, rich character unique to you.
10ft Drop Protection
With an all new internal shock absorption bumper, as well as a full 360 degree exterior TPU bumper, Rugged Case is now equipped to protect against drops up to 10ft, keeping your iPhone safe from unexpected tumbles.
Built to Last
We strive for classy, minimalist designs in all our products, but never compromise on durability. A full rubber frame and wrap-around TPE bumper ensure you can enjoy the beautiful look of leather without worrying about damage to your phone.
