Over the past few years, I’ve invested well in the thousands of dollars on outdoor camera gear such as my GoPro and other optimal camera accessories, yet I find myself using my Optrix case more than anything else. Not only is it extremely convenient to only have to carry one camera around, it’s also very reassuring knowing my iPhone is protected from all of nature’s harshest elements. When you have the Tetons in your backyard, the recreational options are unlimited! Fishing in the backcountry of Jackson Hole is one of my favorite summer hobbies and I always keep my iPhone on hand for snapping pics. I have used a LifeProof case to take underwater photos of the fish I had caught but the camera lens would always trap a little bit of water residue each time it was resurfaced from the water. Consequently, I was constantly having to wipe it off and this would leave brutal scratch marks on the lens cover.
How Rugged is the Optrix iPhone Case?
I had some friends that were super hyped about the Optrix case so I decided to pull the trigger and ordered one that next day. Later that week, after my case arrived, a few friends and I took out the paddle boards and headed to String Lake in Jackson Hole for some relaxing fishing time. I was so stoked on testing out my new case on our trip, when we were loading up to go I had set my phone and my Red Bull on top of my Jeep and completely forgot about it. As we were pulling out of the driveway, there was a loud sliding sound coming from the rooftop! I immediately hit the brakes and of course you can probably guess what happened next. Yep, there went my phone in my brand new case flying off onto the street. I was certain my phone was toast, but to my surprise it was just fine! In fact, there was only a few minimal scratches on one corner of the case from hitting the concrete. Considering the impact it took, if not for Optrix case, my phone would have seen it’s last day. Its durability and construction definitely holds up to its reputation. This is the reason why these guys are the iPhone’s most ultra-rugged housing solution. If you want to take your iPhoneography to the next level, rock Optrix.
