Meet The Toughest iPhone Case Around

Whoa, that's one heavy duty iPhone case!

We set out to find out what exactly drop-proof meant and just how much a drop-proof phone case can withstand. We created our West Slope Case to withstand drops much higher than just 6.6 feet. We recently went out into the field (our local mountains) to do a pretty wild drop test. To test our drop-proof phone case we chucked it off the side of a mountain, and we didn't know what the outcome would be. There is nothing like watching your expensive phone flying off the side of a cliff with nothing but blind faith that it's going to work out.

We used our founder's iPhone 12 Pro to do this test. It was done in two different locations. In one spot we tossed the phone case and it dropped around 60 vertical feet and another 80 or so horizontally. Our rugged case smashed into the rocks below and took quite the tumble. When I hiked down to see if the phone was damaged I was quite relieved to see that it was fine. Our aerogel insulation acts as a built-in screen protector and absorbs a lot of impact.

As far as iPhone cases go we think we made the most heavy-duty iPhone case around. We know you're not likely to drop your iPhone off a mountain but, being an adventurous bunch ourselves, we can see how that could happen.



What else makes our heavy-duty iPhone case so rugged? Our gear loop on the rear of the West Slope Case is also RF welded onto the phone case. This loop is strong enough to stay attached to whatever you clip it to whether it's on a boat and you're crashing through Class 4 rapids or if your pack accidentally takes a long tumble. We tried our best to tug at it until it ripped off and couldn't. We've got a great idea to test it to its full capabilities and we'll post a video of that soon, so stay tuned and keep checking the website.

 

Let's face it. If you're an iPhone owner, you likely have come to rely on it. Every time you go out you've got your iPhone in your pocket or in your hand. It's your navigation, your camera, your to-do list, your own personal meteorologist, and so much more. We need it for communicating with not just friends and family but in case of an emergency. Once again, we over built the West Slope Case so it can withstand drops of 20 feet or more and to protect your phone no matter what happens to it.


The bottom line is this. We overbuilt the West Slope Case in order to over-protect your iPhone. Think about it like an overprotective parent who promises to shield you from harm no matter how many terrible decisions you make. Catching a bit too much air on that mountain bike jump? Tripped on a root in the middle of a trail? Caught an edge and went careening down a mountain attached to your skis? Yeah, we're thinking of you because we've been there before. Our drop-proof phone case is built to handle the absolute worst and we're here to back it up with a lifetime warranty. We know our drop protection will delight the hardcore iPhone users and if our heavy-duty cases don't work for you then please let us know. Our lifetime warranty covers manufacturing defects for the life of the product.
