We set out to give you and your iPhone a stylish and modern-looking see-through case that also protects your iPhone if you drop it... even on hard pavement.
To crystal-clear polycarbonate we added tough, resilient TPE rubber edges. We gave it extra at the corners, to give your iPhone impact protection where it needs it most. The result: Survivor Core.
How do we know how protective Survivor Core is?
We designed Survivor Core according to standards set by the U.S. Department of Defense (MIL-STD-810G) for Shock/Drop and Vibration. The standard defines testing that is designed to measure the ability to protect against a drop onto hard pavement, and from the kind of bone-shaking vibration, deadly to electronics, that it might be subjected to if you left it on the floor of your car all day while you negotiate under-construction roads at top speed.
Then we went to an independent testing agency. They performed tests based on these military standards: they repeatedly dropped an iPhone wearing a Survivor Core case onto a concrete floor from a height of 6 feet. They subjected it to 18 hours of vibration, from 20 to 20000 cycles per second.
Survivor Core performed. Beautifully.
Will your iPhone in a Survivor Core case ever have to withstand the conditions in these military-grade tests? Probably not. But, if Survivor performs this well in our tests, imagine your peace of mind every time you have to take a phone call in a parking lot.
