Nomad Rugged Case for Google Pixel 4

The Pixel 4 is a great smartphone and deserves to be protected and shown off in style. Nomad has its Rugged Case available now for the Pixel 4 in rustic brown and black leather for $49.95.

I tested out the rustic brown one, made with Horween leather from Chicago. Over time the leather will develop a patina and gain some character unique to my usage.

The case offers 6 feet drop protection with its rubber TPE bumper and polycarbonate frame.

Branding and inside lining

The Nomad brand is only shown on the inside of this case. Note the protective microfiber lining that will help protect the back of your phone from scratching too.

Lovely Horween leather in rustic brown

The Nomad Rugged Case provides an ample opening for the dual rear cameras with a border around the opening.

The leather will age over time and add some character to your phone as well.

Raised right buttons

The power button and volume buttons are covered by the bumper, but there are textured buttons so you can activate them with ease. The leather is secured to the bumper with nice fit and finish.

Bottom openings

There are openings for the speaker and USB-C port. There are also two lanyard attachment points on the case with no lanyard included in the retail package.

Nomad Rugged Case in hand

The Pixel 4 is a rather small phone and feels great wrapped inside the Nomad Rugged Case.
