The Survivor + Catalyst case for iPhone 5 from Griffin is waterproof to 3 meters and has an IP68 rating; you can even take photos and videos underwater. Griffin consulted the U.S. Department of Defense’s Mil-Std 810G regulations when designing the case, so it’s proof against 6-foot drops onto cement, wind-blown rain, and vibrations. It has a polycarbonate exterior with nylon controls covers. The silicone gasket PET screen cover keep the outside out, and the interior TPE bumpers absorb shocks. The Survivor + Catalyst is a utilitarian case that doesn’t have to look utilitarian. It’s available in black, of course, but it will also be available in the colors shown above. It will be $79.99 and will be available soon.
