If you love the size of the Nexus 6 but you prefer the gorgeous design of the new Moto X, you can now get the best of both worlds, thanks to Slickwraps.

The company has just started selling authentic Horween leather and bamboo wraps for Google’s latest smartphone, and at just $24 apiece, they’re an incredibly affordable upgrade.

While the Nexus 6 may be manufactured by Motorola, it’s not as customizable as the Moto X; it’s actually only available in two color options. But it is bigger, and it has better specifications — like a stunning Quad HD display, dual front-facing speakers, and a faster Snapdragon 805 processor.

Thanks to Slickwraps, you can now buy the better device, then add a leather or bamboo back just like those Motorola offers yourself. And what’s great about a Slickwraps wrap is that it doesn’t just improve the look of your smartphone, but it also provides some protection, too.

The new “natural” series for the Nexus 6 is made out of real leather — the same Horween leather Motorola uses — and bamboo, so it’ll protect your device from scratches and scuffs as you use it. What’s more, if you get a leather model, it’ll wear and look even better over time.

There are three leather options to choose from — including one that imitates Motorola’s NFL football-style finish — as well as one bamboo wrap. Each one is handmade in Andover, Kansas, and easy to apply, and they all cost just $24. They’ll begin shipping on January 26.

The only downside to a Slickwraps wrap for the Nexus 6? It covers up the Motorola logo on the back of the device, which is a bit of a shame. But still, they’re a great way to change the look of your device and add some protection without breaking the bank.

Slickwraps wraps are also available for a whole bunch of other smartphones, tablets, consoles, computers, and more.
