We have seen some of the previous cases which have claimed to be military grade for maximum durability, but the new LifeProof iPhone case is one which will add a mere 1/16 of thickness to your phone. This is very thin considering it is military grade. For those of us who do not already know military grade means that it can withstand water, dust, snow, and is shock-proof. On top of this they are claiming that it will be able to withstand a 6-foot drop and in addition to this it can withstand being submerged in up to 6-feet of water. This is very impressive for a case, which is all the more reason for iPhone users of a more active lifestyle to go out and get this case. For $70 you can have the case which will endure pretty much everything life throws at you.
