Catalyst Waterproof iPhone Case

Get total protection for your iPhone without compromising sound quality.

Brand: Catalyst

Model: Waterproof iPhone Case





This two-piece, dust- and waterproof case protected our phones through a year of adventuring. After six months of hard use, we noticed a little wear and tear around the corners, but it didn’t compromise waterproofness.


The barely-there touchscreen film was never finicky, even with sweaty fingers or in light rain. Catalyst claims the proprietary membrane over the earpiece allows sound to pass through the film unimpeded: All we know is that sound quality is best-in-class for a shell case.


We appreciated the ultra-slim profile, which let us stow our iPhones (available for 4, 4S, 5, 5S, and 6) in hipbelt and pants pockets.
