At Pure Mobile, we sure do love new iPhone 5 accessories, especially when they give us something we haven't seen before. So it's only natural that we put the spotlight today on the new arrival at our shop of Griffin's latest, the Survivor Waterproof iPhone 5 Case.
Not too long ago, a waterproof iPhone 5 case seemed like a novel concept with only one or two big names working on such a design. of course, there's LifeProof, as well as OtterBox's recently released Armor series. But that led us to wonder why Griffin was so long absent from this new accessory category.
So well known for heavy-duty iPhone 5 accessories made for extreme conditions, Griffin ought to have a waterproof iPhone case of its own. And now, with the Survivor waterproof, a collaboration with accessories maker Catalyst, we've finally got it.
The Survivor + Catalyst iPhone 5 case is designed and tested to be completely waterproof up to 3 metres (or 9.8 feet). So, water won't get in the way of taking pictures or video, or anything else you use your phone for.
Meanwhile, the same rugged protection you get from Griffin's standard Survivor model is right there in this waterproof case as well. Having consulted the U.S. Department of Defense's Mil-Std 810-G to design their testing protocols, this waterproof case also keeps your phone protected from drops, shocks and vibrations.
But as a latecomer to the waterproof iPhone case market, it's a good thing that Griffin has yet another card up its sleeve.
Unlike LifeProof's Fre case (which, by the way, is actually pretty awesome) the Survivor + Catalyst case doesn't actually need to be screwed or unscrewed to be attached or removed. Instead, it uses compression latches to secure the case, making waterproofing your phone as easy as changing into a swimsuit. In fact, Griffin even claims that it's the most easy-fitting waterproof iPhone 5 case availalble.
As we said, we love casting the spotlight on new iPhone 5 accessories at Pure Mobile. And with a carrying case as functional, protective and cleverly designed as Griffin's Survivor waterproof iPhone 5 case, the task is even more fun.
