Want to go for a run? Snap your iPhone 6S into Moshi’s Endura case and get going

If you’re an iPhone 6 or 6S user who’s into sports, fitness, or staying active, your phone can be a great companion for tracking stats, mapping a route, or just listening to your favorite workout playlist. However, carrying your phone securely during these activities can present a challenge. Moshi’s Endura case makes taking your iPhone along for a ride or run a snap, literally, with its rugged design and quick release Metamount.

The Endura Case is a slim profile, snap-on style shell case, and while it may not have bulk factor of a Lifeproof case, it’s a lot more durable than it looks. This ruggedized case protects your phone from 10-foot drops and is rated IPX5 for water resistance, so it can get sprayed with water, but not fully submerged. The case includes two plastic film screen protectors, one black and one white, and can also be used with tempered glass screen protectors. The back of the case is constructed of a hard, thick, carbon fiber plastic with a textured

The back of the case is constructed of a hard, thick, carbon fiber plastic with a textured herringbone hatch pattern. The inside of the case utilizes Moshi’s Hexcore rubber polymer cushion for shock absorption and impact deflection, insulating your phone from accidental bumps and drops. In the middle of the back plate, the crater-like protrusion is Moshi’s Metamount, which attaches to compatible accessory mounts. We thought the case might feel strange in our hands with the Metamount sticking out, but since our fingers cradled the curves, we barely noticed it was there.

The iPhone installs quickly and easily with a tight and secure fit. The rubber edges of the case offer improved grip in the hand, and the raised rim around the screen protects it from scratches when laying face down on a flat surface. The mute switch, volume keys, and sleep button are fully covered so you have to really press down hard to activate them. At the bottom of the case, a rubber seal closes off the ports from dust, dirt, and liquids while mesh-covered cutouts allow for sound transmission to and from the mic and speaker. The seal has two sections that pop out, allowing you to open just the headphone port or the entire door for charging.

Currently, you can use the Endura with two Metamount accessories: a handlebar mount and a Velcro armband, both of which are sold separately. To attach the case to one of the accessories, you simply press the Metamount into the clip of the accessory and it snaps into place. Orientation matters, though, and the case only locks when it is seated perpendicular to the quick release button. We found that giving the phone a twist after seating helps ensure the lock engages so your phone won’t accidentally disconnect from the mount. Once the mechanical lock was secured, the phone stayed put during even our most vigorous exercises, runs, and bike rides. A quick squeeze of the release button and the phone popped off to take calls, send a text, or change tracks.

The whole system makes carrying your phone during your favorite activities effortless and convenient, so you can focus on and enjoy your workout. The Endura case is available on Moshi’s website for $60, while the armband and bike mount go for $20 and $25 each.
