Most Durable: Case-Mate Phantom Case ($50)
The makers of the Tank case bring us a version of their military-grade cover better suited for your daily life. Phantom’s two pieces snap on to cover the back and corners of your phone, with the soft outer cushion covering all ports, and the hard shell hugging the iPhone to offer maximum durability.
Despite a little padding, the slim design allows the case to glide right into your pocket. Case-Mate also includes a screen protector separate from the case itself. Phantom comes in 10 colors, making this case a bit more aesthetically appealing than other bulky cases meant to withstand your frequent snowboarding trips.
Our tester said, "I honestly felt like I could go to war with this thing. It's solid as a rock."
