Nomad Kevlar USB-C/Universal Cable

Nomad Universal USB-C

We have never written a review of a cable. But there’s a first time for everything. So h a 1.5 meter, USB cable would be something that got me excited. And then I found out about Nomad.

The Nomad Kevlar USB-C/Universal Cable offers lots of flexibility. It is designed to be fastest USB-C charging cable for your laptop/camera/smartphone, other USB-C, and Micro USB devices. If you have this cable, you can quickly transition between USB-A, USB-C, and Micro USB connectors to charge your devices.

On one end…

  • USB-A
  • USB-C

On the other end…

  • USB-C
  • Micro USB

The manufacturer says that the cable is reinforced with a double-braided Kevlar outer sheath and strong metal alloy connector housings. They offer a five-year-warranty on the cable.

I pulled on it, dropped it and even took the cable out and beat it against the sidewalk. Then I connected it to my computer and guess what; no problem. It works perfectly.

The reason this attracted my attention is simple. With all the technological advances mankind has devised, we still cannot make a universal connector that everyone agrees upon on a standard. Add to that those of us who might have a favorite older piece of tech that doesn’t support the newer connection ports and you see where this is going.

I suggest that every photographer, podcaster, filmmaker, smartphone owner, computer or tablet owner buy at least one of these cables and have them with you at all times.

From my own personal experience, I have been frustrated when losing cables or trying to connect old and new tech. The Nomad Kevlar Universal Cable does the trick.

I have one in every single camera bag and in my studio just in case. I especially like that it comes with a Micro USB connector since those are the cables I tend to misplace just when I need them.

The cable delivers 20AWG for fast charging. It is equipped with a thick RF shield to enable faster syncing. It has a moisture barrier and a Kevlar outer braid.

I am blown away by how simple this solution is and curious as to why I haven’t sought one out sooner.


This is an expensive cable. At just under $35 it will cost more than many other potential solutions. For me, the money is justified because I am sure this cable will outlast any other I own and it allows me to carry just ONE cable with me on a trip instead of three.
