With summer in full bloom, the sunny weather and beaches not too far, many of you will be taking their smartphone for a vacation, and that might include something a bit more extreme than just lying on the beach and tanning.

Not just to capture the moment, but also to be able to be in touch when in need.

That’s why we’ve summed up the best waterproof and rugged cases for the Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5. Cases and housings that vary in function - some will fit use on both land and water, others would feel more appropriate deep underwater, and yet others will be extremely shock-proof.

I've used Lifeproof before, and as a first person experience I can safely say that this case (AND COMPANY!) is phenomenal. Great quality / not bulky like those silly Otter Boxes and cases above. If anything happens to your Lifeproof case, the company will ship you a new one for free.

I don't like iPhone 5s and all versions that preceded it. However I have to admit in terms of number of available cases, it still unmatched against it's closest rivals.

Why don't they every make articles like this for the S5 or Z2? I guess I'll just keep waiting...

Emphasis on the best 'waterproof' case. I'd take a naturally waterproof phone which lets me pick any case I want, instead of having to pick among a select few waterproof cases.

Hopefully we'll see an actual article (let alone stores, vendors, companies, and creators that actually make and sell more cases than I can count on my hands) about cases for these two lovely water resistant phones.

In terms of iPhone cases, I think I'd need the fingers and toes of California's population.
