Nomad Lightning Cable

Ever get sick of Apple’s Lightning cables crapping out on you? Check out Nomad’s ultra-rugged alternative, which is made of braided ballistic nylon with a kevlar core.

The cable comes in two lengths:

There’s also a 1.5-meter universal version that has a micro-USB connector by default but also sports two interchangeable tips that convert it to Lightning and USB-C, respectively.
