Seriously, you look up “sexy” in the dictionary, and a picture of our new leather Nexus 6P covers pops up. They’re SO. DARN. GORGEOUS. Sporting our kickin’ aviator-inspired, laser-cut detailing and a hand-rubbed finish that will mellow beautifully over time, these bad boys are licensed to thrill. The clever design allows the one-piece case to completely wrap the back, sides and corners of your Nexus 6P in luscious leather. Etched outlines highlight the contours of the back glass panel and special cutouts allow for smooth button usage. Add a set of matching dual leather top-and-bottom screen panels for extra “oops” coverage.
The sleek leather attaches directly and securely to your phone with a high-quality adhesive, keeping it slim and protecting it from sand and other particulates that commonly damage devices when they become trapped inside a typical phone case.
MUCH easier to apply than most of the leather gear you might be used to (ahem): just peel it, line it up with a little care, and slap it on. Available in one shade of grey. (Wink wink, nudge nudge.) And in five other flattering colors also, in case that’s what you’re into: scotch, syrah, stout, mocha, and mojito. Go forth and prepare to get some action!
Best Leather product out there!!

It really is as good as you think it would be. The leather is nice and it wraps around the phone like a cover should. Feels nice and doesn't add too much girth to the phone. If I had to be picky, I would say that they could probably file down the piece and make it smoother in the areas around the fingerprint scanner and outlines so that it becomes a better finished product. But overall, super.
Great feel, disappointing color

I've had the grey cover on for a few days and I really love the feel and quality, but I'm very disappointed in the color. I was expecting grey to compliment my aluminium phone but it's quite brownish and more of a dark taupe, which makes it unappealing and cheaper looking. I put the cover on in the evening and thought the color would look better in daylight but it actually looks worse. I wish I had waited to put it on so I could exchange it for another color, but I'm stuck now.
I'm still giving 4 stars because the quality is great, but unfortunately I don't really enjoy looking at it because of the color.
Thanks for your review, and sorry to hear of your disappointment in our Earl Grey!
We only source the highest quality, full-grain leathers from right here in Portland, Oregon. Since they're natural materials, there can be slight variations in appearance, however the dyed leathers are pretty consistent.

As long as it doesn't have a custom text etched into it, we always welcome the return or exchange of any product.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

great case..worth the money..back cover rocks..front..not so much..messes up the sensors with the 6p and the phone app..happens with some screen protectors too..but highly recommend the back piece
Thanks for the groovy review, and sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the front!
When Toasting a new device, all cutouts (for sensors, ports, speakers, etc) are designed to be as minimal as possible without hindering performance.
A few months after we Toasted the 6P in wood, we'd had several reports (out of thousands of fronts sold) of conflict with the proximity sensor. Although we were unable to replicate the issue, we updated the design with an oversized cutout - we sent the new fronts out to those users who'd reported issue - all of which confirmed that the revised fronts were solid. We've since used the new cut file and this is the first report we've received, as well as the first ever for 6P leather.
If you would be so kind as to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to send a couple of new fronts for you to try. We want to get your 6P fully Toasted and running flawlessly! :)

Fairly easy application, but it went on a little crooked so the sides are a little off. I'm a little disappointed in the side flaps, as they sometimes catch as I'm putting into my pocket, and they seem to be peeling slightly. I was not expecting the skin to be so thick, so I'm not sure if that is a good thing yet. Otherwise, I like the skin.
Thank you for the review, and sorry to hear of the install trouble!
The misalignment would explain the catching sides, as we engineer and laser cut to fit like a glove. This is covered under our "butterfingers" replacement policy - just email a pic showing the misalignment to email@example.com and we'll craft a complimentary replacement. :)
Our full-gran leather wraps are twice the thickness of our hardwood covers at ~1.5mm. Due to how soft & supple our leather is, the additional thickness is necessary for protection as well as wear & tear. Even the highest quality leather skins on the market are cut too thin and phones are notorious for wearing through it - never an issue with Toast!
