Happy Holidays! It can be difficult to shop for a loved one with a case of wanderlust, since they never seem to stay in one place for long. The MobileSyrup team wants to recommend a few parting Christmas presents that will help make their travels even better.
Whether you’re pal is surfing the wild waves or curling up on the plane with a good book, these tech-savvy presents will help keep them connected and protected, no matter where on the globe they end up.
The traveller in your life probably takes their phone with them on all kinds of adventures. Imagine the peace of mind they’d have knowing that their most precious device was safe from most any water or shock damage?
Hitcase smartphone cases have been rated among the best for rugged or wet environments. With three different kinds of cases offered, including the Hitcase PRO, Hitcase Shield, and Hitcase Snap, you can choose the perfect case for the thrills your pal loves to seek.
The latest Hitcase SHIELD for iPhone 7 is available on the website for $89.99 CAD.
It’s not often that I find add-on products to be really compelling, but Hitcase has been an exception. The Hitcase Snap is an easy-to-add protective case for your phone, that accommodates a variety of accessories. The photos it produces, makes your cellphone more like carrying a big DSLR with interchangeable lenses…but way less bulky.
The Shield is probably the world’s thinnest, MIL-SPEC waterproof case for iPhone, at least, it’s the thinnest I’ve ever seen. Most waterproof cases are complex series of clips and clamps meant to secure rubber O-rings in just the right places. The Shield, in comparison, is simply a very thin, clear plastic skin, held in place by an aluminum frame. Literally, peel off the top, slide in your phone and push the top back into place. You are ready for drops, drips and even a dunking up to 6’ deep on your iPhone6. The case for the iPhone7 is good to 10’ deep.
Pop-out plugs allow you to charge your phone or plug in your headphones without removing the case.
Everybody needs a selfie stick, and the ShootR will hold your Snap case…in a snap. Just slide Snap’s built-in rail into the ShootR and it clicks in place. Pull the trigger on the bottom of the rail, and the phone slides free. Collapsed down, it will fit in a small bag or even your pocket. Extended, you’ve got an 18.5” extension pole to put your phone in the best position for dramatic footage. It’s waterproof, so if underwater adventure is your thing, it’ll go there also.
Ever want to create those sped-up time lapse scenes of your car racing through town? Grab the SuckR Mount for a super-secure grip to your car hood, and your iPhone can create some great Hollywood effects, while holding it securely in place. The double knuckle joints let you position your phone at just the right angle.
But, the most compelling features in my estimation, are the three auxiliary lenses available for the Snap case. Hitcase lenses are available in Wide, Superwide and Macro styles. Each comes with either snap on rubber covers, or you can get the keyring style carrier with rubber caps you can’t lose.
If over-the-top adventure is your thing, you’ll want to check out the Hitcase Pro for maximum durability and interchangeable lens. It’s available now for iPhone 5 and 6. We’ll be looking at their new Pro case for iPhone7 shortly. Stay tuned.
Check out the whole line of Hitcase products — they’ve got your iPhones covered with models for iPhone 5, SE, 6 and 7.
Hate bulky waterproof rugged cases? Hitcase has the thinnest iPhone case built to withstand the elements and your adventures. It’s waterproof and drop-proof up to six feet with a pure aluminum body. It’s particularly unique in the way the top of the case easily peels on and off. No need to carry around that weird key to unlock your waterproof case. The Hitcase Shockseal protects the screen while allowing you to use Touch ID and comes off easily when it’s time to switch cases. I’ve used quite a few Hitcase products in the past, and I expect this case will have the same high level of protection and quality.
