To me, elegant design is a way of life. I want anything I create and the products I use to reflect this mindset. I try to avoid products or brands that fail to incorporate thoughtful design. Be it a garbage user experience in a phone app, a poorly engineered appliance, or a fugly sofa…I’m not amused.
With a commitment to solid, thoughtful design Lander is a company that seamlessly melds user friendly and beautiful technology with a life lived outside. Like most of you, when I retreat to nature, the last thing I need or want is complicated gear that requires a set of instructions. To venture out is to seek an unplugged state. I want simple, solid, dependable gear. Lander, as they say, is ‘Gear Made Modern,’ and their mantra is crafted into functional, durable products for adventuresome people.
As an ambassador for Lander, I am thrilled at the opportunity to try their gear both for fun and for the work I do as a freelance ‘skilancer’. If you are considering purchasing from Lander, please use my link (click here) and enjoy 25% off with the code: Lexi25.
On to the grinding of the gear…
The Lander Moab Case for the Apple iPhone in subzero temperatures.
I honestly didn’t expect a thin insert to do much. However, never once, in 5 days of competition did my phone die before I could post my content to the IFSA channels. There were times on the hill when my hand was so cold I had to stash the phone to warm up. A low of 17ºF was no problem for the Moab case. These are the most trying conditions I would ever find myself using my iPhone, so this week-long experiencing using the Lander Moab Case is a complete endorsement of this product. It works. I was able to do my work better, and I could also relax, knowing that my phone wouldn’t be dead by 1PM. I collected more photos and videos, and I was able to put together better content for my job. SOLD. The Lander Moab Case is now an integral part of gear for my work.
The ThermoLine backing on the Lander Moab case extends the battery life of your phone. Tried. Tested. True.
At $39.99 the Lander Moab case is reasonably priced (even more so if you use my link and the code: Lexi25). The real value here for me is the incorporation of the ThermoLine material to preserve and protect your battery. This for me was a game changer in terms of being better able to do my job with less fretting and stressing about my iPhone battery exhausting itself in my cold, mountain office.
The rough and tough ports on the Lander Neve Lightning USB Cable are ready to rumble.
As further testament to the bombproof construction, Lander will send you a replacement Neve cable should yours malfunction at any point. Spend a couple extra bucks and avoid replacing your cables in the future. My only critique is that it does not come in a longer length, as I really prefer a 6ft cable. However, if you’re taking this beauty into the backcountry, then of course weight is a concern so perhaps 3ft is better suited to those who wander afar.
The flat cord of the Lander Neve Lightning USB Cable resists tangling.
