Earlier this year while on a bike ride through the beautiful Wachau Valley in lower Austria, I had my iPhone 6 Plus slip out of my pocket, fall to the ground and get destroyed. Immediately, I started kicking myself for not buying a much stronger case.
Although these heavy duty Urban Armor Gear phone cases are not the most glamorous out there, they sure are durable, and you’ll definitely be sorry you didn’t have one the next time you drop your phone and it smashes like mine did—especially if you’re somewhere remote or out of the country where you just can’t go buy another US-styled phone. FYI: I brought my phone in the next day to the Apple Store in Munich and they told me it would take 2-3 business days to find a replacement and it would’ve cost me over $500 USD!
With a UAG phone case you won’t have to worry about dropping your phone as they all have a hard outer shell and a soft impact-resistant core. Their cases are lightweight and military drop-tested! According to their website: “MIL-STD 810 is a US Military certification applied to equipment that can withstand tough environmental conditions. The Mil-Spec certification is granted to a number of commercial products that strive toward the same standards of ruggedness, durability, and protection.”
If UAG is good enough for the military, then it should be good enough for you! Prices start at $34.95.
