Defense Shield combines hard polycarbonate, soft rubber and anodized aluminum to form the ultimate in protection for your iPhone. The use of machined metal instead of plastic provides military-level drop protection in a slim, pocketable and premium offering. Drop tested to survive 6.6’ (2M) drops on concrete, Defense Metal is the ultimate way to protect but not cover up, your iPhone. Machined aluminum protects the perimeter of your device, while inside, soft rubber wraps around, protecting from drops and ensuring metal never touches your iPhone. An oversized raised lip protects your screen from drops and surface scratches. In the rear, clear polycarbonate protects your device without covering it up. Simple snap on construction means no tools are required.
