Militaristic Design

One of the first things we noticed about the Urban Armor Gear were the rugged design elements. From faux screws, honeycomb patterns, to the indentations on the back, everything about the Urban Armor Case screamed resilience. The case also does so while maintaining a relative low profile, at least where weight and bulk is concerned. Many people shy away from using cases for the sole reason that they make devices look and feel so much bigger. The Urban Armor Gear maintains a great balance with protection and size, so you hardly notice that you have a case on.

Shock Absorbing Bumpers

On the four corners of the device, you are greeted with shock absorbing bumpers that are integrated into the case.  Chances are that when you drop your device, it’s going to hit on the sides, so this is a great added feature that guarantees extra protection for when that occurs. The bumpers are built seamlessly into the design as well, so they don’t detract from the overall look of the Urban Armor Gear.

Another cool feature about the bumpers are the pad built onto the backs. So whenever you place your device down, you don’t have to worry about the case getting scratched. While this does not really add to the protection of the device itself, it does help guarantee that your case will remain pristine and damage free for a longer period of time. I mean, you are going to be looking at the case for long time, or for however long you use  keep your device protected with a case, so it bodes well that Urban Armor Gear took some measures to keep the case looking brand new as long as possible.

Great Button Craftsmanship

The buttons are made to be slightly bigger than average, which is a feature that we personally loved. Having reviewed various in the past, nothing makes a grade A case into a B than having horrible buttons. The buttons on the Urban Armor Case registered every click immediately and I didn’t feel like I had to go workout just to be able to power on the device. They are also made of a

High-Grade Protection

Urban Armor Cases meet or exceed MIL-STD-810 standards. So you know that the case can take a beating. The case itself is made of composite materials, with a hard outer shell and a soft inner core. This makes the Urban Armor Gear extremely resilient to drops and scratches. The materials are also resistant to UV rays, and chemicals found in common skin lotions. So you don’t have to worry about handling the device, or taking it out in the sun.

Final Thoughts

If you need a case that not only looks great but offers fantastic protection, then the Urban Armor Gear should definitely be on your radar. With great, militaristic aesthetics, high-grade protection, and low profile, you would be hard pressed to find a better case.
