If you’re looking for a rugged iPhone 14 Pro case with a little utility, you’re in luck. Nomad, a renowned manufacturer of phone cases, has teamed up with camera case and accessory designer Peak Design to release a limited edition phone case for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The Nomad Rugged Case is available for purchase today starting at $60 with instant shipping from both Nomad or Peak design‘s web site.
The new Nomad Rugged Case supports MagSafe charging and features Peak Design’s SlimLink magnetic attachment technology, making it compatible with all Peak Design mobile mounts, chargers and accessories. Supported Peak Design mounts – which allow a mobile device to be attached to walls, bicycles, motorcycles, cars and more – will also be available for purchase on the Nomad website starting today.
Design-wise, the limited edition case is only available in black and features reinforced TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane – a soft, rubbery plastic) bumpers that surround the iPhone 14 Pro’s screen, corners and camera lenses. The PET plastic back plate is matte and designed to resist scratches, and the body sits flat when placed camera-side down to prevent annoying wobbling. Nomad claims that the polycarbonate frame allows the case to remain lightweight while providing 15 feet of drop protection. There are two lanyard attachments on the bottom of the Rugged Case, and inside the case itself you’ll find a 100 percent recycled nylon canvas interior with a custom “Nomad x Peak Design” screen print.
According to Lawrence Lander, creative director at Peak Design, both companies collaborated to create the new Nomad Rugged Case to give customers more mounting options, resulting in a strong new phone case that works with the entire Peak Design ecosystem. “Like backpacks and purses, it turns out that people have a wide range of preferences when it comes to phone cases,” Lander said in a statement. video announcing the collaboration. “Instead of designing a rugged enclosure from scratch, we teamed up with some world-class designers we already knew and trusted.”
The limited edition cases are only available while supplies last. It’s a nice looking case, especially for something designed to keep your phone from getting battered. The ability to quickly switch between different Peak Design SlimLink mounts is clearly the selling point here, and as an accident-prone person who frequently switches between cycling and driving myself, I’m certainly intrigued.
