Space. The final frontier: Humans conquered it 38 years ago, when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Now, thanks to Urban Armor Gear, your iPhone can take its place in space, all while enjoying the protection of a rugged, lightweight shell

Admit it: Your iPhone and iPad are your life, and you want to protect it to the best of your ability. Thus, you’ve bought phone cases and other protective gear. But odds are they haven’t come close to the coverage Urban Armor Gear offers.

True to their name, these cases are made to withstand the wear and tear of your daily work and play – and then some. Urban Armor Gear has been drop-tested 26 times from a height of 48 inches, sustaining zero damage in the process. The cases have earned the U.S. military certification of MIL-STD 810, which is applied to equipment that can withstand tough environmental conditions and meet the set standards for ruggedness, durability, and protection.

Urban Armor Gear combines three highly desired characteristics of cell phone cases. They’re lightweight and they offer 360-degree protection, all in a patented, low-profile design.

The tough outer shell safeguards both the face and the back of your phone or tablet, but without the heft or bulk normally associated with so strong a defense. In addition, a soft inside core cuts down on the impact from drops or abrupt bumps. You can still carry it in your pocket or bag without feeling weighed down, but you may want to keep your phone out more often, thanks to the striking profile.

Of course, your mobile lifestyle isn’t limited to phones and tablets alone – you’re probably carrying around a laptop too, and Urban Armor Gear has the equipment for those needs too. In fact, Urban Armor Gear covers Microsoft phones, as well as several Android phone models from Samsung, Google, LG, Huawei, and more.

Urban Armor Gear boasts one more accomplishment: It became the first company to send an iPhone 7 to space! And it has the 360-degreee video to prove it. An iPhone 7 encased in Urban Armor Gear’s Monarch case traveled 120,000 feet into the stratosphere on a weather balloon. The iPhone documented the trip on the way up, until the balloon burst, at which point a parachute on the iPhone deployed on descent. The iPhone and the Monarch case was found to be in perfect condition when it touched down. Behold, your space-proof phone, the highest credentials possible. How does your daily grind compare?

On Sept 28th, 2016, Urban Armor Gear (UAG) became the first company to send an iPhone 7 to the fringes of space, complete with a 360-degree camera system to document the trip in 360 video:
