Your iPhone is your lifeline on the hill no matter if it’s bluebird or a socked-in storm day. It wakes you up at the crack of dawn, keys you into important snow and avalanche reports, coordinates with your buds, keeps you updated on when the Tram’s finally going to open, blasts tunes all day, and last but not least...how else are you supposed to show all your friends how sick you just got on instatwitterbook without it? If your girl/boyfriend did even half of those things for you, you’d show them a little respect, so do the same for your iPhone.
You’ve heard the hype of the LifeProof iPhone cases, and it’s all true. With this, there’s no more blowing snow out of a dropped phone at the top of the peak after snapping a photo, no more worrying if you zipped up that pocket half way down a line, no more spider web screen. And who doesn’t’ enjoy the old iPhone-in-the-beer shenanigans at the bar after a day of laying trenches?* Let’s face it, we all get that your Otterbox is rad and you’re a badass because you got it in realtree camo, but that doesn’t do anything for you when you get the black screen of death trying to power your phone up after hours spent in a soggy pocket.
Being waterproof and bomber is all well and good, but actually it’s the details that make this LifeProof case really worth it. The slim design and matte non-stick outer shell make it only slightly larger than a normal phone and that means no more money or IDs getting stuck to your phone and ripped out of your back pocket. Headphone use is pretty standard if you use one with a slim jack on normal days, and when moisture may be an issue, just use the included waterproof extension (just remember to keep a close eye on the screw-in port when it’s off the case). A scratch-resistant guard protects the home screen and the case has professional-grade glass on the rear camera lens so the optics of your iPhone won’t be affected. One last added bonus, the back of the case doubles as a mini sub-woofer, which is great should you ever find yourself in need of a mini sub-woofer.
End of story, you know this is your third iPhone in two years, so buck up and get this case.
