As I rule I usually buy just cheap cases for my iPhones. Although I’ve never broken one, I see more iPhones with dents and broken screens than any other phone. I don’t really like these cases, but they serve to keep the back scratch free, but let’s face it. I’m getting old and my phone hits the deck more often every day. (I’m not senile though, not yet)
Today we’re looking at a ruggedised case from Cat, that has changed my mind on iPhone cases. I remember Cat, when they were called Caterpillar. (I told you I was old, didn’t I?). When I say ruggedised I don’t mean waterproof or dust proof, I mean a sturdy shock proof case that feels and looks great.
The majority of the case is made from a very dense firm rubberised plastic (known as SAIF) with some side strengthening in aluminium. It’s that kind of rubberised compound that hardens in the impact zone when hit to protect the precious cargo, they also use the same stuff in crash helmets, so it’s a fair bet this stuff is good. It looks and feels great in the hand. As I’m getting old (Did I mention that?) the case has had about 10 drop tests in the 5 days I’ve been using the case. I’m not exactly sure how it landed, but neither the case or the phone have any signs of the drops.
I should say that the case looks that nice I’ve had several people ask what it’s like and where you can buy it.There’s not much else to say about a case, but this one is worth buying at the current price of £19.99 on Amazon. It feels and looks good and protects the phone very well from general daily use.
