Case-Mate Introduces Tank, A "Military-Grade" iPhone Case

Case-Mate is taking on Otterbox for the claim of best super-protective case. The Otterbox Defender series has long-been the go-to case for those looking to keep their iPhone free from harm -- but Case-Mate says the Tank provides military-grade protection for the iPhone 4 and 4S.
Modeled after motorcycle helmet engineering, Tank is designed with a hard, impact resistant exterior and a shock absorbing interior. A shatter resistant, polycarbonate hard shell combines with the thick, silicone cushioned interior.

The retractable screen shields from impacts, cracking and condensation, fully protecting the iPhone screen. The Tank exterior is made of a premium, soft grip texture that slides easily in and out of your pockets. The Tank tests number one in impact resistance against the leading brand, and meets or exceeds US military standards.

The Tank is $60 and comes in four colors. It's available from Case-Mate's online store.

You won't believe how many times I've accidentally fired my iphone from sling-shots, cannons, trebuchets and other various instruments-of-doom. Now they don't get damaged anymore! Thanks case-mate!

I never understood why people admire the beautiful design of iPhones, but wrap their phones in thick pieces of silicon and rubber turning it to something resembling a Fisher-Price toy.

I'm not implying this product is bad by any means but for those of us who have been in the military, we know that "military grade" doesn't necessarily mean it works well :P

Can it resist being slammed five feet directly into the sidewalk while being told "nice phone case, dork!"?
