Do Leather Cases Protect iPhones?

June 05, 2019

Short answer? It really depends. And by that, I mean that it depends on the type of brand you’re getting your iPhone case from.

For example, does the iPhone case maker have a reputation for only creating protective gear? And if they do, are they the type of seller who created phone cases from every device, versus a seller who specializes in iPhones? Believe it or not that matters too!

Think about it; you’ve gone ahead and spent a great deal of money acquiring your iPhone, you wouldn’t cover it with just anything, right? If you’re going to get a luxury leather case for aesthetics, it would be great if cases for iPhones were also protective.

Are Leather iPhone Cases Any Good?

Hell yeah, if we’re talking about the Hitcase Ferra that’s been crafted with premium full-grain Italian Leather and stainless steel beveled hardware to become a luxury leather case

Unlike a lot of leather iPhone cases that focus purely on aesthetics, and aren’t very good (to answer your question), the Hitcase Ferra is able to satisfy your needs for a  slim, ultra-light iPhone case that combines traditional leatherwork style with solid day-to-day protection for your phone.

Gone are the days of having to sacrifice looks for function…

With the Hitcase Ferra – Form meets function with this leather luxury phone case, magnificently hand cut, hand sewn and hand-pressed, Ferra was designed to feel exactly like a high-end wallet, pair of shoes or a stand-alone piece of leather furniture: soft yet strong with incredible attention to detail and quality. Ferra is craftsmanship you can actually feel.

To be fair, it’s not that other leather cases for iPhones are bad, but more often than not, they’re simply not as good looking as Ferra, and if they are, you probably shouldn’t trust them any higher than 2 inches above the ground. Just saying.

However, if they’re super secure and can withstand getting beaten up, then they’re going to have way too much bulk and weight. This is exactly where the Hitcase Ferra differs. You get the good looks that match up with your iPhone and the aesthetic (and safety) that customers have come to expect from Hitcase.

Hitcase offers the right combination of both drop and scuff protection without reminding you that you are indeed protecting your phone. You can just relax and rest assured that your iPhone is being taken care of in the most tasteful manner with our luxury leather case.

Is the Hitcase Ferra Luxury Leather iPhone Case For You?

The Ferra Leather Case is designed exclusively for the iPhone X/Xs and the iPhone Xs Max. Unfortunately, if you don’t own any of the above iPhones, then the Hitcase Ferra Leather iPhone case is not going to work for you.

However, if you do have an iPhone X/Xs or an iPhone Xs Max, you will absolutely be amazed by how much the Hitcase Ferra feels exactly like a high-end wallet: soft yet strong with painstaking attention to detail and quality.

Full leather gives Ferra its iconic premium feel, but the stainless-steel beveled hardware is the technology that you’ve come to love and respect from Hitcase. As we say, once you put Ferra on, you won’t want to take it off as a true luxury leather iPhone case.
