Customer Feedback


 "I just recently hit a deer on
 my motorcycle.
I slid 15 feet
 on my face, then 15 feet on
 my back, and somersaulted
The bike was a total
 loss. My watch was crushed,
 shoes ground offmy feet,
 shirt and pants destroyed
 and helmet wrecked.
In the
 hospital, I finally got a look
 at my cell phone... it only
 had a few minor scratches
 on it!

 My Nutshell case had taken
 the ENTIRE weight of my
 body sliding on hot pavement,
 and is STILL intact!!! 
I wear
 my Nutshell case on the front
 of my pants and I won't say
 what part of my anatomy
 that little case helped
 protect, but as far as I am
 concerned you have a loyal
 customer for LIFE!"

Nutshell Testimonials

Future Proofing
"Your company embodies what futurist Naisbitt calls "High-tech, High-touch", i.e., that in the increasingly cold, mechanistic world we live in there is a countertrend, a counter desire; to touch and feel natural things.
I applaud you for acknowledging that need.

Steve Johnson,

"I've used your iPhone 4 case for years. Now I have a horizontal iPhone 5 case and there is nothing on the market like it. I have used cheaper cases and they end up being more expensive because they break. My Nutshell is one of the best investments I have made."

Our unique two plate, one magnet Shielded Magnetic clasp on Tab or Flap prevents magnetic "leakage"  into the case and its device.

One plate blocks any magnetism from the device, while the other magnifies the strength to make the bond very hard to pull apart, yet it slides apart real easy.


 How to Choose your Nutshell

Once you have identified the Nutshell that fits your device, (use the search box on top right of every page) you get to tailor the case so that it is just right for you.

Select your Nutshell; an open top Pouch, or a case with a Security Tab (swings shut across the center of the case) or the full cover Flap (folds completely across the top of the case; makes the device less obvious).

Because of their size, some of our smaller cases may not offer a full flap. However, the tab we use on these cases more than adequately protects the device inside.

Work out how you want to close it.

If you get the Pouch there's no closing involved, but you can close the tab or the flap with either Velcro or our own unique Shielded Magnet, which minimizes magnetic leakage into the case and makes for a clasp that slides apart easily, but firmly resists being pulled apart.

You can have your Nutshell plain (just on its own) - or fixed to you with either a Belt Clip or a Belt Loop.

1. Our Belt Clip secures firmly to any belt up to 1.75" wide...or your waistband or pocket...with a super-strong ,always spring back, steel clip...and a steel D-Ring (just in case you believe in adding even more security -or you could choose to add our adjustable leather shoulder strap).

2. Our unique multi-way leather Belt Loop is securely sewn on; lets you wear your belt case on your belt anyway you want; upright or sideways, or slanted to the left or to the right.

Select any of the other options we offer; color, front pocket, pen loop or shoulder strap.

When you have completed your selection, proceed to checkout, select how you want us to ship and even send us any special instructions we may need to build your Nutshell.

With a Nutshell it does not matter if you are right handed or left handed.
Your device is always ready for use - no matter who you are.

Please read our Customers Comments

Risk Management

 Chaos really does happen - and breakages can occur - often at the worst possible moment

Protection Plus

While the Pouch is great for quick-draw access, the Nutshell Security Tab Top provides great all round protection.

 For times when it really counts, the Nutshell Full Flap Belt Case delivers true security and protection plus.

 The Belt Loop angles to fit - most comfortably

Ultrasuede Lined Chaos Control

All Nutshell belt cases are lined with soft synthetic Ultrasuede to prevent scratching.

Uniquely Individual

Because all natural leather has its own markings, texture and color, every Nutshell is unique.

No two Nutshells are exactly the same.

Hand made

Because you get to design your own case, each case gets the individual attention it deserves. We build your case, when you order it.

If you request a case that is not a production item, we can make you a case, by hand, to meet the specifications you request. Ask us during the checkout process, and make sure to add the dimensions of the device you have. Depending on the complexity of your request, we will add a minimum $50 to your order, to cover the cost of a skilled leather crafts person.

All Nutshell Leather products are Tuff as Nuts strong.

Secure Trader

This site provides a safe and secure trading environment for our customers.

We use high 128-bit SSL encryption to transfer your order information between your Browser and our own secure internal payment processing processes.

We value your privacy.

Thank you for choosing Nutshell.
