Urban Armor Gear is definitely well-known for its tough cases for iPhones and iPads. If you really need an idea of how rugged, back in 2014, the company sent a protected iPhone into lower space and dropped it 101,000 feet back to Earth. The handset was completely unharmed from the trip and remained completely functional.
And the company is adding to its lineup with its new Trooper Series case for the iPhone 6/6s and 6/6s Plus. Along with protecting the handsets, a special built-in compartment in the back of the case is designed to hold up to four credit cards.
A soft rubber exterior surrounds the screen and protects your iPhone from scratches and abrasions. All ports and buttons, including the camera and flash, remain accessible.
The Trooper Series is available now to purchase directly from UAG’s site. The iPhone 6s/6 version is $39.95 while the model for the larger handset is $5 more. Buyers can select from a black, white, or orange version.
If you’re interested in finding out more about UAG’s case line, I reviewed the similar Composite Case for the iPhone 6. The impressive case is lightweight and easy to hold while extra material helps to protect the iPhone’s vulnerable corners.
