Rugged and armor cases for the iPhone X: protect your investment
Oh, no, wait, we're not threatening you — it's just that your $999+ investment has a slippery glass back and a huge chance that whatever side it falls on might cause a break. This may not be an issue in your everyday life if you happen to live a more peaceful lifestyle, but it's a good idea to think about an armor case if you happen to go on long journeys from time to time, or hikes, bike rides, or just tend to bump against hard surfaces on a regular basis.
Whether you tend to put your phone in harm's way too often or you just want to have a shell lying around for when the occasion comes up, we've got a selection of armor cases here, just for you. Check them out!
Spigen Tough Armor
Spigen Rugged Crystal
An evolution of the Rugged Armor, the Rugged Crystal is an entirely transparent case. Easy to slip on and take off, it's extremely grippy and slim enough to not get in the way. Also fully compatible with Spigen's screen protector.
Lifeproof has been specializing in armor cases since forever and the Slam is the latest evolution of the company's design efforts. It's a thick frame in duo-tone finish that is completely drop-proof, according to the company, and can be bundled with a belt clip, bike mount, or suction mount — each sold separately.
A more classic Lifeproof design, the Fre covers the phone front and back as an entirely water- and dust-proof case. Needless to say, this one is tough to beat if you are hiking across dirty trails. Also available in a variety of vibrant colors.
The Otterbox Pursuit is another case that offers an integrated screen cover and sealed camera module to reduce contact with dust and sand particles.
VRS Design High Pro Shield
Incipio Carnaby Esquire
Incipio's Esquire is a more stylish type of rugged case in the sense that it comes with a soft cotton texture wrapped around its protective hard shell. If you're looking for a unique look for daily usage alongside ruggedness, this one is a nice choice.
A protective case with a "trunk" compartment, which holds a credit card-sized, 26-in-1 multitool. The case itself has a grippy texture and shock-absorbing cushions inside. The flap on its back doubles as a kickstand and you can use the compartment as a mini wallet as well.
