GEAR REVIEW: Urban Armor Gear iPhone Case

Urban Armor Gear iPhone Case

I recently purchased a Urban Armor Gear case for my iPhone 5S. I loved the look of them and seemed like a good solid case. After getting it I was relieved that it wasn’t some flimsy cheep China generic cover.  This case had some strength to it!!!

It’s hardshell outside is strong plastic that has already withstood many, many many accidental drops from heights up to 10 ft. I wouldn’t recommend trying to drop your iPhone from 10ft with this case on it but the one time mine did fall it landed on the corner and was fine.

The inside layer is a softer rubber material thats gives a little more cushion and protection for the phone.  It also helps when your holding it but giving a bit of sticky grip so it doesn’t slide out your hand.

All in all this case is great. Its sturdy and rugged while keeping a small profile so it doesn’t take up your whole front pocket. I’d recommend this case to anyone looking to add a little bit of protection for their phone without breaking the bank.

My one con would have to be that Urban Armor Gear doesn’t offer a waterproof case solution. I would imagine and hope there is one in the future. As a paddler and being on the water all the time it important to keep your gear safe. I’ll be watching their case line-up waiting for that waterproof option.
