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.

"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."

Each handcrafted case is individually made in our own saddlery using our special triple layer construction and covered in the best New Zealand leather.

This is a hard-shelled, zippered case that is sized to hold your handheld device with few, if any, additional components.

Pockets are provided for minimal paper storage. Larger cases may enable you to carry peripherals.

Nutshell® reinforced and insulated carry cases for handheld clamshell computers and Tablet PC computers are manufactured specially to contain the computers they hold.

At Nutshell, we grouped the ever increasing range of handheld clamshell style computers into a variety of common sizes, and then we developed a series of leather carry cases that best provide a perfect fit.

The cases are minimalist by deliberate design.
They contain flat pockets inside the lid to hold papers, or cables and other lightweight 'stuff' that the user is likely to want to carry with the computer.

Depending on the LxWxD that best fits your own layout needs, they may perfectly carry power packs, GPS Receivers, scanners, cameras...and all those other vital peripherals.

Nutshell® uses a triple layer method to construct its handheld carry cases.

The outside is genuine natural leather, closed by one of the world's most reliable zippers.

The inside is two sheets of tough polypropylene, top and bottom. Sandwiched between each sheet and the outer leather covering is a layer of HiProtec (tm), a closed cell foam material backed by a skin of 1000 denier super reflective silver cloth.

The outer layer provides good looking, long lasting protection for the carry case. The inner sheet protects against knocks and bumps to keep the computer safe and sound.

The sandwiched layer of HiProtec (tm) provides even more protection, and acts as a thermal barrier, to keep the computer at a constant temperature, no matter what the climate outside.

A Nutshell® handheld carry case will keep your handheld or sub-notebook computer safe in even the most punishing climatic conditions;

They shrug off the high temperatures found inside a closed 'sun-baked' auto and prevent your computer from frying. They safeguard their contents from the damaging effects of high humidity.

If that is not enough, every Nutshell® handheld clamshell carry case has a layer of special non-slip material sewn onto the base - to stop the case slipping and sliding around during travel. Perfect for airplane trays, auto seats or even laps!

The Nutshell® range of Handheld clamshell carry cases are a lot more than just look-good.

They really do provide the type of protection that other cases only promise.
