The best rugged and protective cases for iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X so far
Still, glass is glass and there will be plenty of drops and breaks in the following year. Will your phone be one of the victims? It's a pretty expensive repair if it is...
Or you are probably already looking for a case or a few to protect that expensive phone with? Not a bad idea, we have to say! If you are looking for some super slim cases that don't mask the iPhone's pretty profile, or just a general mix of the best cases out there, check out the two links below. If you are looking for the absolutely rugged, protective cases that will help your phone survive a savage drop, check out our pick right here!
Spigen Rugged Armor Extra
Case-Mate Tough Stand
The Commuter series is made with the urban lifestyle in mind — for people who spend a lot of time on the streets on a daily, moving from one place to another and using their trusty phone in the process. It strikes a balance between being quite protective, dust ingress protection included, and being not-too-chunky for your pockets.
The Commuter's bigger brother pulls no stops. It not only covers your phone's back and sides but also has an integrated screen protector. Great choice for hikers, bikers, skaters, and other active folks.
VRS Design Damda Folder / Glide
Incipio's Carnaby 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 alongside ruggedness, the Carnaby is a nice choice.
Much like the VRS Damda, this Incipio case has a flap on its back, revealing a slot that takes up to three cards. So, you can offset the fact that your protective case is a bit bulky by leaving your wallet at home.
The X-Trio wraps completely around your iPhone, including a tempered glass screen protector for the front. A good alternative if you want full protection but not much bulk. We'd be careful for drops, though — it probably won't do as well if it meets the pavement after 10 feet of flight time.
