Flip-open cases come and go, but Noreve’s Tradition series carries on. An improved update of the company’s first-generation nano Tradition, the new version opens from the bottom, uses a simple magnetic sealing system, and protects most of the new nano’s body without becoming cumbersome. High-quality, soft leather comes in nine different colors, each with a metal front accent and detachable rear belt clip and nub system.

Note that the Hold switch, headphone port, and small pieces of the other side corners are exposed, but otherwise, the case offers comprehensive front, back, top, bottom, and side protection. There’s also a metal cover for the rear nub screw hole.
