When developing superior protection for top devices like the iPhone 6 Plus, we often field test our products to see how they stand up to the rigors of daily use. From standard drop tests and bike ride mishaps to two-story falls on concrete, we feel our methods yield superior results. Still, one of our loyal Twitter followers in the Tech Armor nation shared a story with us this week that raised the bar!! We couldn't help but share it here with you:
@TA_TechArmor thx ur case & screen protector saved my phone! Works perfect still #MowedOverMyPhone#FlexProtectAir"
He couldn't be serious, right?
That's what we thought, so we reached out to Nic for more info on how this happened and some proof of life on the phone. Fortunately, he was more than willing to share the story and imagery! We'll let him take it from here...
"My name is, Nic Hale, from Oklahoma and I just want to send a praise to Tech Armor products! I have an iPhone 6 Plus, so I bought: a Tech Armor glass screen protector, as well as the Flex Protect Air case. I bought this case because of it's sleek, simple design while protecting the phone. Still, little did I know I was going to truly put the product to the ultimate test!
Last Sunday morning, I went out to our property to mow. I had my Bluetooth headphones on, rocking out, while I drove around on the mower. I made a few passes around the yard and next thing I know my music stops and then my headphones warned of a "low signal". I stopped the mower, realizing my phone wasn't in my pocket and thinking, "hmm I must have left it in the truck". Well, it couldn't be in the truck, because I was closer to the truck than before and I didn't lose signal... I thought 'oh no that's not good', I quickly retraced my last pass of the mower and as I walked over, I saw my phone laying face down in the grass. As I got closer, I realized the case is no longer on the phone. I thought to myself, "there is no way this phone is not completely obliterated!"
I reached down and grabbed my phone, much to my surprise, there is very little damage, considering, what had just happened. My screen was perfect, with no scratches, cracks, chips, nothing!! The back of the phone had a small chunk out of the bottom corner and a few surface scratches... A true testament to the case taking the initial blow is the fact that the phone is actually bent and the screen (like I said before) is still perfect. This small, thin case saved my phone! I believe the case took the first, major impact when going into the mower. It launched the phone out of the case, out of the mower and then the case must have stayed in the mower longer, because it ended up completely destroyed!
Basically, I'm writing this letter to tell you, thank you for making a great product!! I truly believe that had your case not been on my phone, I wouldn't be typing this message on that same phone today! "
Well, Nic, we thank you for sharing the story and upping the ante on our field test process!!

Imaging strapping a football helmet on your iPhone! Our cases use the same technology as NFL-caliber helmets to keep your device safe from anything life throws at it!
This weekend as we sit down to watch two stellar defenses clash heads for the 50th Super Bowl title, we are reminded of how far the sport has come in the last 50 years. In terms of innovation and impact on the sport, we can debate endlessly on everything from the the west coast offense to the wildcat formation. In our opinion, however, the introduction of polycarbonate helmets was a MAJOR step forward in protecting what matters most: the health and safety of the players (from pop warner all the way up to the elite NFL).
At Tech Armor, the health and safety of YOUR device is our prime concern, which is why we use the same polycarbonate materials in our Active Case Series and our new HYBRID Edge to Edge screen protectors!
We chose this material for the same reason the NFL (and nearly all other football associations at any age level) use it to protect their players: polycarbonate is tough (yet lightweight) and highly moldable without losing integrity. Thanks to its unique ability to absorb and distribute impact (while retaining a rigid, lightweight profile) polycarbonate offers PREMIERE protection for both NFL players and YOUR phone!!
It’s like strapping an NFL helmet on your phone! (without the face mask of course) Using a superior polycarbonate alloy to conform to the shape of your iPhone 6/6s or 6/6s Plus, the Active Series case was built for action! Our cases are also Military Drop Tested to withstand anything life throws their way, while retaining a slim profile to keep your phone from splitting your purse/pockets!
Covering your phone’s complete front face (from edge to edge) is certainly NOT a new concept, however we’ve taken it to the next level! Think of the last time you dropped your phone… did it land perfectly flat? The vast majority of the impact is going to affect the edge of your phone screen, so we decided to reinforce that area with a polycarbonate resin. The benefits are twofold:
STRENGTH: A shock-absorbing (NFL-caliber) ring of protection around the front face of your device
VERSATILITY: The liquid nature of polycarbonate allows us to develop an edge that wraps around the curves of your device (instead of sitting on top of it) to allow a seamless fit.
