Back in January, we shared a video of an iPhone 6 that went into space, protected by an iPhone case constructed by Urban Armor Gear. The iPhone 6 came out unscathed, so when Urban Armor Gear offered us the chance to get our hands on a few of its cases to check out for a review, we agreed.

Urban Armor Gear's line of cases are definitely unique, with an industrial-looking armored shell and an impact resistant inner core. Cases are available for several devices, but we checked out the company's Rogue Folio for the iPad Air 2, its Rogue Folio for the iPhone 6 Plus, and its Navigator case for the iPhone 6 Plus.


We liked the lightweight, rugged protection offered by each of the cases, but we had some qualms with each of the folio cases. The Rogue Folio for the iPad works as expected, keeping the iPad safe from drops and serving as a stand that offers multiple viewing positions, but when holding the iPad with the case on, the flap is loose and hard to grip.

The same goes for the Rogue Folio for the iPhone. It offers all-around protection, leaves the buttons easy to press, and holds credit cards, but the design of the folio is bulky, covers the camera, and feels downright sloppy.

The company's line of non-folio iPhone cases, which all have a different name based on color, are thin and light, and for the protection they offer, they don't add a lot of bulk to the iPhone. Ports are left open, buttons are easy to press, and a screen protector keeps the display safe. There's also a lip around the phone to prevent the display from touching a surface like a desk when facedown.

Urban Armor Gear's standard iPhone cases can be purchased from the company's website for $39.95, and are available in white, blue, orange, black, pink, and clear. The company's folio cases for the iPhone and iPad are available in red and black and can be purchased for $39.95 and $49.95, respectively.
