Product Overview

While there is no magnet in this case, it will still work with MagSafe and other wireless chargers.
Our fascinating 14 Million view video below shows how the craftsmanship make it and all that is required to build one of our leather iPhone cases. We went old school here. Each case is handmade and built with imperfections where they were handcut on the corners based on the judgment of the individual. The Japanese say that imperfect is perfect and call that philosophy Wabi Sabi. Of course, they don't go for that in Toyota. This leather iPhone case process took about one year to perfect and another two years to refine. We now have them the best they've ever been.
I boiled all of the most popular "Leather" iPhone cases in the video below to show you what they're really made of. A plastic case with a leather sticker on it. Would it be right or fair to mix 80% lard with 20% butter and sell it as Rich and Creamy Butter? 
Our leather iPhone case is the only 100% SOLID Leather iPhone Case for the iPhone 11, 12, and 13 that we know of. It is made with 100% full grain vegetable-tanned leather. Not top grain or genuine. We use the leather that has the FULL amount of grain for these iPhone cases. The natural lighter color will develop a beautiful, rich dark patina with age and use, specifically with sunlight.  

Check out my beautiful wife in the video below in Gabon, Central Africa, whale watching in the sun with her leather iPhone case just a couple of months after getting it in the natural leather color. If you don't feel like waiting to age your leather iPhone Case is, you can put some light oil on it like Olive or Baby Oil and then put it out in the sun or up in the dashboard. What I do to age my leather iphone case is, when no one is looking, I rub my leather iPhone case on the oilier parts of my face like next to my nose or along my forehead. Try it and see. Also, touching it, the oils on your hands should darken your leather iPhone case too. 

For 3 reasons, our solid leather iPhone case protects better than any other iPhone case you could buy. Because our leather is a little thicker than boot leather, it protects like no other. 

Thick leather absorbs- shocks way better than hard plastic does. You're going to drop your iPhone a few times no matter what. Let the leather of the iPhone case absorb the shock rather than the energy of the strike pass through a hard plastic case directly to your $1000 iPhone. 

Thick leather insulates- It's better than almost anything. On the insulation charts, leather doesn't insulate as well as styrofoam but better than wood. You don't have to worry about leaving your iPhone up in the direct sunlight of your dashboard to overheat because most of the heat does not pass through our leather iPhone cases. It's amazing how 

Thick leather takes the strike- The corner takes the scrape and keeps on going instead of like most other "leather" iPhone cases tearing the thin leather sticker to expose the cheap white plastic.

    Unique look - NO WIRELESS CHARGING with 13 Max Pro

    This is my second iPhone case by Saddleback Leather. Last was a iPhone XS Max. Wireless charging DID work with that case. I have tried 3 different wireless charging pads and none of them work with the new iPhone 13 Pro Max case from Saddleback Leather. Lucky the phone has a robust battery but this is a disappointment! Fit is as you'd expect from these cases. Decent but not perfect. I expect it to last years. Button functions are accurate. Needed some trimming with a nail clipper to keep corners and edges from grabbing pockets.

    So, I originally left a review at 2 stars, but want to update it (and couldn’t figure out how to delete my first review). If you buy this case, be prepared to do a little finishing/finessing work, it didn’t come perfect.

    However, after a bit of sanding and burnishing the edges and corners, I have to say this case is amazing. It is kind of like a good pair of boots. Once “broken in,” it fits the phone very well, and feels and looks pretty awesome…

    Best leather iPhone case on the market!!

    This is my 2nd Saddleback leather iPhone case. I originally had one for my XS Max, and I loved it and knew I had to have one for my 13 Pro Max. The case itself fits wonderfully, and to my surprise it is even Magsafe charger compatible. It works perfectly with my Magsafe charger. Everywhere I go, people always compliment me on my case, and I'm proud to tell them that I got it in my own backyard since I live in Fort Worth! I had never heard of Saddleback until I purchased a satchel at an estate sale, and saw the engraved stamp on the bag and Googled them. I can't tell you how excited I was when I saw they made iPhone cases. Anyway, long story short, I love this case, and I love Saddleback!! Don't let any of the negative review sway you...this is a terrific, high quality case!

    Love it!!

    Not sure about the other comments about the case being bad…. This case is amazing. It’s the 2nd one I’ve purchased because I upgraded to the iPhone 13 pro. It ages wonderfully. The only issue I’ve had is that when it gets wet, it gets loose. But if you take your phone out and tie a little string to keep it closed, once it dries, it’s as good as new and holds it’s shape.
    I would recommend this case for anyone who wants a good looking, sturdy, durable case that will last longer than your iPhone.

    Lacks some attention to detail

    I had a Saddleback case on my iPhone X for several years and LOVED IT. I avoided upgrading my phone specifically because I loved my case so much, so when I got an iPhone 13 Pro it was the first accessory I bought.

    Unfortunately, this case doesn't fit symmetrically on my phone -- it bulges out on the bottom right which bothers me to no end. The top and left sides fit snug against the phone and are cut straight along the edge of the screen, but the right side is uneven and curves along the edge.

    When I got my first case years ago I remember thinking that the leather is thick and a bit stiff, but that's what I learned to love about Saddleback products: the leather breaks in nicely over time. Unfortunately, this case doesn't seem to fit straight and I'm not confident that this will be corrected in the break-in process.

    I wanted to give this item 2-stars, but I love Saddleback products so much I feel compelled to be generous. I'm going to email Saddleback directly to see what they think. I'll report back if hear anything.
