Dustproof
Add this case to your phone for a completely water-, dust-, shockproof wrapper. This two-piece, snap-together case and built-in screen protector kept out fine sand particles during a week in Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park, and the internal foam cushion protected our device from nerve-wracking one-story drop tests.

Dunkproof
Rubber gaskets on the audio and battery ports kept the phone completely dry during quick submersions and splashes in Colorado’s Medano Creek, and our tester even took a selfie dive into a 10-foot-deep pond with no leakage. (The IP-X8 rating means it’s waterproof at a depth of 6.6 feet for 30 minutes.) Bonus: The screen cover is more responsive than most.

Gripes
Voices sound muffled in speaker mode, and you need a special tool to pry open the case.
