Drop Protection

The #WoodBack Explorer Case is a beautiful blend of technology and nature designed to give extra protection for your iPhone, 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 iPhone XS Max, 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!

Wood is at the heart of everything we do – so it's important that our timber comes from sustainable sources. We make sure our wood comes from FSC certified suppliers that are committed to sourcing wood from responsibly managed forests.

I accidentally order the 14 pro and not the 14 pro Max phone case. I don't dare ask for an exchange in case they made it once the order was placed.

Juanita Estrada

This is my third Cover-up case and they all outlasted the phone. Beautiful, unique, sleek case with a professional look. Highly recommend. Thank you, Cover-Up for making a high quality product.

Joseph Reiss
Best on the market! 5stars!

Excellent all around. Thinner and cheaper than Apple. Doesn’t bulk up my big phone. Textured sides are nice for grip control. Bought one and liked it so much I ordered more! Highly recommend!

Aaron Presbury
3rd purchase from Cover-Up

As advertised, great product, thin around the edges, lip extends beyond the cameras and an added screen protector which is what I wanted. Highly recommended.

Fred Frazier
Ash Woodback Case

Not as good as previous versions. Upgraded to iPhone 12 Pro and upgraded to like case from Cover-up. Slimmer cases available. Switched to Pitaka and I’m happy. I don’t like or see the need for button covers.

Glen Carr
Great product

Superb quality and looks exactly as is advertised. Would recommend

Nishant Desai
Fantastic case as always!

Your wood back cases are just the best. Been a loyal customer for years now and will continue to be so. Unbeatable quality, finesse and detail on my XS Max wood back case. Love it. Thank you. :)


This is the second phone I've owned that I have protected through Cover-Up. Needless to say, the first case survived one heft drop and was still very much in tact, as well as looking stylish and feeling natural in my hand. My second purchase (this one) is just as good, if not better. The wood finish feels smooth, the rubber rim is grippy and the case fits the phone incredibly well. I can highly recommend this product, and would recommend trying Cover-Up if you're curious of a more natural phone case.
