How does the water resistant leather we use differ from leathers used in other cases?The leather we use in Active Rugged Case is provided by Heinen, a German tannery established in 1891. Heinen's special tanning process make this leather extremely water resistant and durable, perfect for athletic and outdoor applications. While other leather is sprayed with a water-resistant coating that wears off over time, Heinen leather is thoroughly infused with natural lipids that should never wear out.
Will the leather scuff and patina over time?The natural hyrdrophobic leather used in this product is also resistant to light scratches and scuffs. Unlike our cases built with Horween leather, Active Rugged Case is designed to only develop a slight patina slowly over time.
Where can I attach a lanyard on Active Rugged Case?There are two lanyard attachment points, both built into the reinforced speaker ports on the bottom edge of Active Rugged Case. We suggest Nomad's Wrist Strap.
