Griffin’s Survivor iPhone Case is Very Aptly Named

Imagine taking your iPhone 4 or fourth-gen iPod Touch with you on a trek deep into the rainforests of South America, the deserts of the Middle East, or snowboarding down a mountain face without ever fearing for its safety. While this probably isn’t something you could do with your naked device, Griffin has brutally over-engineered a military-grade case to allow exactly those options.

“It’s my job to test, abuse, and destroy our products to see what they’re capable of,” says Michael O’Connor, Quality Assurance Certification Coordinator at Griffin. “We’ve dropped them, thrown them against — even through — walls, and we can’t seem to damage the iPhone or iPod touch inside. Of course, we don’t suggest you do this at home.”

Over-engineered, asks Griffin, or just the best case for any occasion?

“We think it’s a little bit of both.”

With a shatter-resistant two-piece polycarbonate shell surrounded by a thick silicone sleeve, the Survivor case has been through some very thorough testing:

  • Designed and tested to meet or exceed US Department of Defense MIL-STD-810 and UK Department of Defense Def-Stan 00-35 through an independent testing procedure
  • Integral display shield deflects wind and rain (test: up to 200 mm/hr for 1 hour)
  • Rigid internal frame protects from Shock/Drop (test: drop on all sides onto a flat concrete surface from 6’/1.8 m)
  • Sealed ports block blown sand and dust (test: 18 m/sec for 1 hour)
  • Silicone cladding blocks vibration (test: 18 hrs at 20 to 2000 Hz)

That’s enough to protect your iProduct from a monsoon or sand storm more than long enough to find shelter. Plus, with its belt/strap clip, it’ll always be with you.

I could go on and on, but this is something better seen. Check out the video below:

    Try to use this with your gloves on. Not much of a survivor to me.
