Ballistic has made a name for itself by dropping iDevices and other gadgets from uncomfortable heights to demonstrate the protection their cases provide. Now, they’re heading in the opposite direction with the Ballistic Hydra for iPhone 5. Although it still survives drops up to 8 feet, it can also be submerged in water up to seven feet for up to 30 minutes.
The Hydra offers easy to access port covers and acoustic waterproof meshes, and is engineered to be completely dust proof. Specifically…
The Hydra case is engineered to deliver the dependable rugged, high-impact drop protection that Ballistic is famous for, with guaranteed security against falls up to 8 feet. Meeting Military-Specs and built with Ballistic’s high-quality protective materials, including silicone top TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) and durable polycarbonate, users can be confident in Hydra’s durable, every day performance that will withstand wear and tear overtime. The Air Gap Suspension Springs™ also provide a 1mm gap between the case and device to further cushion the phone.
The Hydra case is intelligently designed to form to your iPhone® without any unnecessary bulk. With strong active latches, the Hydra delivers a trendy design with an easy assembly and removal. It also comes equipped with an optional holster and 180-degree swivel belt clip. At $80, the case provides great value compared to other waterproof cases with a holster.
The Hydra also features:
- A slimmer form factor than competitors on the market right now.
- Easier to assemble/disassemble than similar solutions
The Ballistic Hydra is offered in charcoal/white, black/gray, pink/black, white/black and lime/black color options, and comes packaged with the optional holster. It will be available for $79.99 at www.goballisticcase.com, with free USPS shipping on domestic orders.
