The #WoodBack Explorer Case is a beautiful blend of technology and nature designed to give extra protection for your Galaxy S8, to help it survive the most challenging of life’s adventures.
Combining a flexible rubber-like outer shell and durable polycarbonate body with a handmade real wood skin, each case is one of a kind. Just think of it as your very own work of art, all courtesy of Mother Nature.
Offering added impact protection, the lightweight case is moulded to precisely fit your Galaxy S8, guarding against drops, bumps and knocks, whilst allowing the real wood to take centre stage. Fully-covered edges and corners provide an extra layer of defence, while the specially textured sides give you added grip when you’re on the go. Not to be left out, a subtly raised bezel guards your screen against impact from drops and pesky scratches when placed face down.
Combining modern and traditional craftsmanship, each piece of wood is laser cut, before being hand-sanded (the good old fashioned way!) to create a super smooth exterior. Coated with a specially selected finish made from a blend of vegetable oils and waxes, the raw wood is given a subtle natural shine that allows it to age beautifully over time - with added protection from water and everyday dirt.
The perfect fusion of protection and style, the #WoodBack Explorer Case not only protects your technology but enhances it – naturally.
*All #WoodBacks are made from real wood so every skin or case will have a different and unique grain pattern. This means the #WoodBack you receive may look slightly different to the photograph. That is what makes your #WoodBack one of a kind!

I was very pleased with this case. The price was good and it shipped quicker than expected. I've not dropped my phone yet, so I can't comment on any protection this case provides. It does, however, have a nice texture on the sides for gripping my s7 edge. The wood looks (and smells) great as well. 10/10 would purchase again.
This is an excellent phone case. The main allure of this case is, of course, the beautiful, unique wood back. However, I was also impressed by the precision of the fit to my S7 Edge. My devise snapped in and everything was tight and snug with all buttons, ports, and holes perfectly available, with the exception of the SD card tray. But I very rarely ever access the SD card, so this doesn't bother me at all. The polycarbonate around the edges is feathery soft, yet very grippable; it's thin but strong. To my initial horror, I dropped my device just a few hours after snapping it into this case, but I was relieved and thrilled that the polycarbonate edges took the shock with only barely perceptible scratches. The only warning is that if you're outside the UK, be prepared to wait approx. 10 business days before receiving the case. However, know that it's 100% worth the wait. Like a previous reviewer, I really appreciated the hand-written note on the invoice-- nice to have that personal touch in this day and age.
- Beautiful wood back.
- Strong, soft, grippable polycarbonate edge.
- Lightweight (20 g or 0.7 oz using my electronic scale).
- Personal 'thank you' from the company.
- For me, none.
I'll recommend this case and company to all my friends and family!
I was a bit skeptical when I first saw the case online that it couldn't be properly real wood. It is real wood (you can tell by the feel of the grain and even the smell) and I would recommend this case to anyone looking for a real wood case. The case is very minimal and unobtrusive which I like because my S7 Edge is already a large device. Delivery was prompt and the hand written note was a lovely touch.
I love the case, It is visual attractive and seems to be protecting the phone quite well (Hopefully whenever it has to respond it will).
