When it comes to competing with the leather cases and watch straps produced by Apple, there are not many companies that have what it takes to offer the same level of quality and attention to detail. Of the few that do, Nomad prominently stands among them.
Earlier today, Nomad took the wraps off of its Natural leather collection. Although the company has gear for products made by Apple, Samsung, and Google, the products included in the new release are all made for Apple devices. The Natural leather collection is comprised of two Apple Watch bands and an AirPods case.
Natural Rugged Case
First on the docket is the Rugged Case for Apple AirPods. We covered the Rugged Case a couple of months back when it was only available in brown or black finishes. With the release of the Natural leather collection, Nomad is now offering a lighter option for those who prefer a brighter look.
It sports a two-tone design that pairs light brown and white, providing an appearance that is sure to catch some attention while also protecting those pricey headphones of yours. Just like the original release, it is comprised of two pieces that slide on either end of the AirPod case and grant easy access to the Lightning connector.
Like Nomad’s other products, this case is made from Horween leather. The company touts that it will develop patina over time, helping make each case look unique to its owner. There is just one thing left for Nomad to do and that is add Qi charging to this case (like many others out there) so it is ready to rest nicely on the AirPower mat that may finally be in production.
Natural Modern Strap
Next up, the Natural Modern Strap for Apple Watch. There are two variants here, one with gold hardware and another that uses silver. This attention to detail allows Apple Watch users to pick the perfect match for their watch, provided they are not wearing a Space Gray model.
Just like the Rugged Case above, the Natural Modern Strap will also patinate. Considering that it is worn on the wrist, it is very likely to show off a unique look within a shorter period of time.
Pricing and availability
Just like the original versions of the Nomad Rugged Case, the Natural edition is priced at $29.95. Not too bad, considering the protection and beauty offered. It is available for order today direct from Nomad and it may appear on Amazon at some point in the near future.
If you have your mind made up on one of the Natural Modern Straps, it will cost you $59.95. That’s significantly less than what Apple’s leather bands run, especially when looking at the Hermès collection. Both the gold and silver Natural Modern Straps can be ordered at Nomad today.
