There certainly is no shortage when it comes to cases for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, but how many of these case companies are really willing to stand behind their products? Cellpig is pretty confident their case will keep your phone safe, and that’s why the Cellhelmet comes bundled with one year of insurance.

Right now it’s being offered as a Kickstarter project, but it looks like Cellpig is well under way with getting these ready for market. The Cellhelmet case is meant to be a ruggedized case for your iPhone without being overly bulky or ugly. They use TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane rubber) that has the “feeling of hard rubber, yet it’s not rigid like plastic.”

The case itself isn’t the story; it’s the insurance. So long as you register the product within 30 days of purchase, you’re covered for a year. Go ahead and stomp on it, drop it, or hit it with a baseball bat. With the exception of water damage, you’re covered. They’ll fix your iPhone if it’s fixable; otherwise, they’ll just replace it. The catch is that you have to pay a $50 handling fee each time you send in your phone.

The MSRP on the Pittsburgh-made Cellhelmet will be $44.99, but if you help fund the Kickstarter project, you’ll get it for less. The $40 level includes one of the first Cellhelmets (including the one year of insurance), plus a ticket to their launch party. Go up to $75 and you get two cases and so on. While you can probably find cheaper TPU knockoffs on eBay, none of them will come with this kind of insurance. Not a bad deal, I’d say.
