The Hitcase Pro is called the HITcase for a good reason.
The featured image is the original Hitcase Pro that’s responsible for all the photos and video stills below and more. I’ve used this exact unit heavily every single day for nearly 2 years all around the world. It’s been dropped, thrown, submerged and even used as a hammering tool. Despite this, it still has no structural damage and still functions with 100% efficiency. Even the always exposed wide lens still takes wonderful photos like it was brand new.
Though I could have replaced my current Hitcase Pro (first production model) for no money out of my pocket, meaning a brand new case, I declined as there was simply no need to retire it. Then I learned about the new model coming out soon, the Hitcase PRO+. The best just got better-er. The only valid reason to get a new Hitcase.
Needless to say, my iPhone 5 never suffered any damage or even a hint of moisture penetration. It just rests peacefully cradled within the glove-like fit of the Hitcase, completely protected and without a care in the world.
A happy iPhone is a good iPhone.
Without further a due, here is the visual proof of the Hitcase Pro in real life action, not controlled lab tests. Actions that would have destroyed a naked iPhone or if encased in a lesser case.
This photo was taken while I was river rafting somewhere in Bali, Indonesia. The Hitcase served me well that day as the water was indeed rough as you can see my partner falling off the raft. Moments later my iPhone flung out of my hands and hit a rock, luckily the Hitcase did it’s job perfectly.
This was a rather happy accident. While island hopping the Gili Islands, I threw my iPhone (I’m on the bottom left in black trunks) across the boat to try to get it into my bag. I missed and it hit the engine, bounced high and when it finally landed it took this photo from the force.
This next photo I DO NOT recommend but am compelled to tell you what’s possible with a Hitcase. We were playing catch with a football on the beach of Koh Samet and someone got the idea to tape my iPhone to the ball and hit “record”. This photo is a still of the exact moment before I caught the ball.
From the look of my face you might think it’s anger, but it’s actually anguish. Not because I was worried my iPhone would be damaged by the quicksand swallowing it up but because I wasn’t sure if it was recording. This Cambodian quicksand had nothing on my Hitcase.
These may be extreme examples of the protective capabilities of the Hitcase but it was real world situations as an adventurer. So whether you have a Hitcase for action activities or just everyday use, you can count on the safety of the iPhone it was so well engineered to protect.
With a Hitcase, you can really “hit it” – literally and figuratively.
