Case-Mate Military Grade Tank case will protect your iPhone at all costs

case mate military grade tank will protect your iphone at all costs casemate

If you’ve been searching for a case that will protect your iPhone against the most severe drops, bumps, and bruises, we may have found your match. Most people need a case to protect the precious glass-and-aluminum phone from breaking after the slightest drop, but only a select few will have the clumsy-factor needed to be the proud owner of a military-grade iPhone case like The Tank ($60) from Case-Mate. 

This rugged case packs protection of all forms in a rather bulky package, but that’s to be expected when you are looking for sturdiness and protection above all else. If you have too much concern about the aesthetics of your iPhone, you might as well stop reading now because this chunky case is not for you. For those who are a little bit more accident-prone, however; this case offers serious protection and doesn’t look terrible. The ruggedized case has a hard, shatter-resistant polycarbonate layer outside, but is lined with a thick layer of cushy silicone for impact resistance. The case reportedly passed Military Specifications for sand/dust, shock/drop, wind/rain, and vibration, so this thing will have you covered no matter the situation. 

According to Case-Mate, and a video that’s viewable on the company’s Website, the Tank case tests number one when it comes to impact resistance against other ‘rugged’ cases. A retractable screen (seen above) adds extra protection from impact, cracks, and condensation. The case plugs your iPhone’s ports to prevent dust and dirt from getting in, and the exterior polycarbonate has a soft-touch finish that should provide a good grip without getting stuck in your pocket. The heavy-duty case is available in four different color options and even comes with a geeky holster belt.
