The DODOcase mission is to marry tradition and technology into finely crafted products. We love leather craft but found that a lot of the leather products out there were designed for an era before tablets and smartphones so they were too large and or had metal fittings on the interior. We thought there was room for improvement so we right sized the design for our modern tools, tablets and smartphones, and got rid of any metal fittings on the interior that might scratch your device. 

We also found a leather that had been tested by generations of some of the hardest working tradesman in the world, Loggers. The DODOcase Logger's Leather is an American oil tanned leather that has been worn on the boots of lumberjacks and forest firefighters for 150+ years. If this leather can handle the abuse of being on the feet of a 250 pound man running through the forest all day long we are confident that it will hold up to anything you can throw at it!

Another thing that is amazing about Logger's Leather is its smell. Like your first baseball mitt or that leather jacket your grandfather passed down to you, some leathers just have an amazing smell that you can't forget. Some have described our Logger's Leather as pure manliness meets pine forest. DODOcase co-founder Craig Dalton swears that when he closes his eyes and takes a deep breath of Logger's Leather he is instantly transported back to 1905 Mendocino where he is sitting next to a roaring campfire on a starry night by a cabin he built with an ax and his bare hands. Be forewarned that the aroma of this leather may have a similar effect on you!

A classic 1946 film on Logging title "Redwood Saga"

If you have decided to quit your day job and become a logger we recommend the Chipewa logger boot, Made in the USA since 1901.Or if you just want to daydream about what it must have been like to be a logger in a bygone era we recommend checking out Darius Kinsey — the Ansel Adams of logging at the turn of the 20th century. The University of Washington has a great collection of his photographs.
