If you’re like me, then your summer probably entails some degree of adventure. Last week? Whitewater rafting. Problem is, I’m also an information junkie and whether I’m navigating Category 5 rapids or just chucking gear into my SUV, there are lulls and in those lulls I must… check… email. To sheath my iPhone 4, I’ve been testing out venerable über case-maker Pelican’s i1015 iPhone Case ($27). It’s a watertight, crush-proof, dust-proof case that features an external headphone jack that supports microphone control to avoid unnecessary opening/closing. Like you’d expect from Pelican, the case is purposefully built with toughness and ruggedness at the forefront. Though it’s designed for the iPhone 3G/3GS, iPod Touch, and iPod Nano, it also fits the iPhone 4 and Droid perfectly. Don’t let the serene scene above fool you, the Pelican i1015 case is battlefield ready.
