Yes, I’m that guy who likes for people to look at my phone and immediately know what professional sports collectives I support.
You may be the same with college teams. Or super heroes. Or animals, jet fighters, or Black Butler characters. Whatever your general interests, SkinIt has a wide array of designs to reflect them. But SkinIt is not just about skins. They’ve got cases, too, and today we’re taking a look at their Cargo Case for iPhone 6.
A combination of a plastic hard shell exterior and textured flexible TPU liner, the Cargo Case does an excellent job of wrapping and protecting your iPhone.
The hard plastic edges rise up over your screen to protect it when placed face down, while cutouts in the plastic for the volume and sleep/wake buttons allow for easy use while still under the TPU liner. The edges are also lined with textured TPU to give you a secure, comfortable grip when holding your iPhone 6.
Considering the rigid construction of the Cargo Case, I was a bit surprised that it wasn’t harder to get on and off the iPhone 6. I was never able to do so without activating the sleep/wake button, but at least there were no concerns about bending it.
I’m also pleased with the width of the bottom cutouts for the headphone and Lightning ports; they’re more than wide enough to accommodate to most headphone jacks and Lightning cables, so you shouldn’t have to remove the case for connection. Note that actually docking the iPhone 6 on a third-party device is another story; it’s not going to happen.
Finally, the “skin,” as it were, comes pre-applied to the back of the Cargo Case. This is good in that it’s not up to you to align it, but it really is not much more than a sticker on the back of a black case. For licensed case designs, there are more interesting options out there.
However, if you’re a fan of SkinIt’s designs or licensed franchises and prefer more protection than is afforded by a skin, the Cargo Case has you and your iPhone 6 covered.
