Urban Armor Gear

Most of us have had that dreaded moment when our iPhone slips out of our hands and goes flying across the room, crash-landing on the ground. If we’re lucky, the worst damage is a small ding on one of the corners. But, we’re not usually that lucky.

Urban Armor Gear makes a rugged case for the iPhone 6s with high-level drop protection and reinforced corners for added safety when trying to avoid the unavoidable.

The case is made from a hard composite shell with a honeycomb TPU interior. It is also fairly thin, relatively speaking, measuring just a scant 0.5 inches. The company claims the honeycomb structure helps provide added shock resistance, while keeping the case thin and light.

There is a lip that raises above the iPhone 6s edge, which keeps the screen from being vulnerable to scratches while laying flat on a surface. There are also corner bumpers and rear skid pads, which give added grip while in your hand and extra protection if it slips out of your hand.

Your iPhone 6s volume control buttons are protected from dust with heavy-duty covers, while the ports and speaker are exposed for easy access. They also have oversized cutaways, so you can easily plug in any type of cable or headphone.

The case is certified to meet military drop test standards from four feet. It comes with a one-year manufacturer warranty.

The Urban Armor Gear Case comes in a variety of colors and is available on Amazon for between $20 and $30, depending on your choice. There is also a version for the iPhone 6s Plus for between $30 and $40.

    I have had this case for the 6 plus for over a year. I’ve tried several cases and this has been my favorite. It’s surprisingly light and provides a nice grip for the phone. I bought the pink one for my wife on her 6 and she loves it too.

    I once sent my iPhone 6 flying down the sidewalk, landing with a very loud WHAP, but when I picked it up, the phone was absolutely fine, not a ding or scratch since it was in an Urban Armor Gear case. The case itself had a long crack on its back but it did its job protecting the phone, so I purchased a new case the next day. I highly recommend these, they look great and do the job.

  • God damn it! Not five minutes since I bought a different case off eBay!

    Had the UAG cases on my previous iPhones and they are one of the best ones out there. The only gripe I have is what is with the cut-outs on the back for?

    Any case that obstructs the edge of the display for swiping is not for me. Sticking with my Spigen Air fare r my 6 and 6s+. Perfect, but to be used with caution.
