Next up: a new definition of awesomeness for the LG Nexus 5 in the form of a shapely, elegantly crafted real wood cover. Beautifully engineered with precise details, laser-cut and hand-finished to perfection. The full set includes a back panel, side wraps, button covers and camera lens ring surround. Goes on in next to no time: just peel it, line it up with a little care, and stick it on. Add an optional front cover to take it to the next level. Available in four sumptuous, sustainable wood choices: walnut, bamboo, ebony and ash. Sure to make an impression on the boy/girl next door, mmm-hmm.
* NOTE: Make sure to select the correct color of your phone. The black LG Nexus 5 has a rubber back and requires a different adhesive than the white or red version.
Okay at best.

Overall, it's okay. I dig that it's real wood. I don't dig that I paid $5 extra for a "nexus" etching I didn't receive. Come on guys :/ probably won't be ordering again.
Oh no, so sorry to hear you didn't receive the product you ordered! If you could send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we'd be happy to get a replacement sent out with the NEXUS logo etching, or refund you the $5.

I\m super happy with how the product feels in the hand, it changes the whole feel of the device. Toast were also very nice to send me a replacement immediately when they heard I have butter fingers, as they put it haha.
I thank you for your great quality product and your lovely team.

- Easy to apply
- Very strong adhesive
- Pieces fit perfectly
- Nice/simple packaging with instructions
- Attractive designs
- Adds nice texture to phone without too much bulk
- Pieces are very fragile when trying to apply to the phone
- Strong adhesive allows very little room for adjustments
- One-time use skins
- Lint and dust stick to the edges of the panels
I was very impressed by the shipping time of the product. Took just over a week after I ordered, for it to arrive in Canada. The pieces are easy to apply, but if you mess up the placement, it is very hard to readjust. I thought I would break the back panel when I was peeling it off. The side pieces are VERY fragile so apply them with care. My top piece cracked a little bit when I was taking the back sticker off, it's not visible after the skin is applied, so no worries. The pieces are very accurately cut and fit every button and cutout on the phone. The wood smells great. I would recommend this product.
Hands down the best phone case/skin

The Nexus 5 bamboo case is amazing. It actually feels like wood and not some cheap processed plastic you'd find at competing retailers. The biggest strong point is the fact that it's made of real bamboo. That and the great build quality are what really justify the price. Simply looks fantastic.
I've had mine for about 2 weeks and there have yet to be any signs of peeling. The skin can be installed easily enough (despite sticking to your fingers pretty well) and even if you make a few mistakes you can just peel it off and put it back on.
Hands down the best phone skin or case available. Only downsides are that the skin attracts quite a bit of dust (nothing life threatening) and the fact that since it is made of real wood, if you drop it, it may nick the case or scratch it. Just remember that this is more of a cosmetic accessory than a protective one. But still, a damned good one at that.
