How an iPhone Case Improved my Life as an Adventurer and Traveler

Hitcase Pro, News.

Hitcase Pro and ChestR EDC

Yes, I know, It’s quite a claim to say that an aftermarket housing for a mobile device can change my life. But it has and it’s called the Hitcase Pro. Obviously it’s not major life altering changes but it has made certain elements of my unique lifestyle a little bit better.

I travel around the world for a living. Looking for beautiful sights, seeking adventure and sharing it with good people I meet along the way with an always-ready-live-memory-recording-device in hand. The basic concept of the most tangible way of capturing moments haven’t really changed in a hundred years, photography. But the methods have evolved greatly. To a constant traveler living out of a backpack like myself, a clunky but high-end DSLR camera isn’t the pinnacle of photography but something that fits a different equation; compact + rugged + reliable + waterproof + multifunctional + great photos.

I’m no mathematician but the simplified equation could be; iPhone + Hitcase.

I’ve been using using the Hitcase Pro for almost as long as the company has existed. In fact, I still use the very same case I first purchased about a couple of years ago. Considering how much (loving) abuse I put through it, that’s pretty damn impressive. It’s got dents, scratches and abrasions all over it. However, it’s quite beautiful with character as it’s more like patina or battle scars on a tank that’s been through wars but still has much life left. This is one of the reasons how the Hitcase Pro has changed my life… It has given me a solid peace of mind of the safety of the precious iPhone it so diligently protects. I can not only be carefree about not breaking my iPhone but take it with on my person in any possible environment. As a lifestyle traveler and adventurer, this is a game changer.

GoPro’s have become the ubiquitous adventure camera but when you add “travel” to the mix, there is a better alternative. I should know as I’ve equipped the Hero 2 for the first few months of traveling the world. It served me well (albeit clunky) with great action shots and was relatively tough, until it failed completely one day. Luckily I still had my iPhone but missed the wide shots as the panoramic apps just didn’t cut it. But the Hitcase Pro just came out and purchased it immediately.

It was like having a GoPro® crammed into an iPhone.

There was a moment where I was happy that my Hero 2 broke down as I wouldn’t have found Hitcase otherwise. So with this new setup, my photos became a lot more interesting because of the fact that it was always with me ready to be activated with a moment’s notice – because you know, it’s a mobile phone and you always have that on you. So documenting my travels and adventures became a seamless and effortless action, like having a bionic third eye.

Like any tool or gadget, it’s only as useful as the person using it, but it’s the potential of those things that really make a difference. In the many months from around the world of hard use I’ve gotten with the Hitcase Pro, it has improved my life as an adventurer and traveler.

Hitcase Introduces The Hitcase Pro+: Interchangeable Lenses, ShockWave Sound

Hitcase PRO+, News.

New TrueLUX Interchangeable Lenses

We’re stoked to launch our new Hitcase Pro+ model that now has our most requested feature, removable lenses! Our 3X SuperWide zoom lens has been totally redesigned from the ground up and improved. Our TrueLUX technology makes the lens sharper and now completely removes vignetting in both photo and video modes, a first for any iPhone lens!

The Hitcase Pro+ has a new front panel with an easy to use “twist on” lens mount that lets you quickly swap lenses on the fly even with gloves on.

The Hitcase Pro+ comes with both the 3X SuperWide zoom lens that’s perfect for action sports and a Flat Lens for a slimmer lens profile and a standard field of view. Both lenses have anti reflective and hard coatings for excellent color and scratch protection.

ShockWave Sound

We improved the sound quality in the Hitcase Pro+ to be 2X better while retaining the same durability and waterproof protection down to 33 feet. Our new ShockWave audio seal gives you iproved clarity and better audio quality for both making calls and recording adventure videos. Capture more detail in your recordings compared to other rugged and waterproof products on the market.

Pro+ Upgrade Kit Available!

Already have a Hitcase Pro 5 but want the improved TrueLUX swappable lenses and ShockWave sound? We have you covered with our Hitcase Pro+ Upgrade kit. The kit comes with a new cover designed for the new lenses, both the TrueLUX 3X SuperWide lens and the flat lens (does not include ShootR monopod). See more details here.

Comes With Our New ShootR Pocketable Monopod

Each Hitcase Pro+ comes with our new ShootR monopod. We designed the ShootR monopod in house because the ones we were using were either too big, too heavy or not waterproof enough for our needs. Lightweight, waterproof, and designed for Hitcase, the ShootR is collapsible down to a 6 inch pistol grip form factor and compact enough to fit into a pocket yet extends to almost 19 inches to capture wide angle selfie shots or get high above the crowd for “bird’s eye view” perspective.

Easy Mounting RailSlide System

Of course the Hitcase Pro+ retains all the best features of earlier versions including complete compatibility to our wide family of easy to use RailSlide mounts. With RailSlide the Hitcases  slide on and off in seconds. A locking mechanism holds the case firmly and steadily. We have mounts for motorcycles, cars, boats, roll cages, surf boards and anything else you can imagine. You can even use our RailSlide® mounts with your GoPro® cameras as all mounts are compatible with GoPro®.

Still Waterproof To 33 Feet

The new lenses and improved audio does not take away from the durability that is a key component of all Hitcases. The Hitcase ShockSeal and ShockPad dual seal system works in tandem to provide maximum water sealing and shock protection. This unique combination allows the Hitcase PRO+ to be waterproof up to 33 feet and lets your iPhone take drops from up to 10 feet.

Compatible With iPhone 5/5s/5c

Hitcase Pro+ works with all versions of iPhone 5.

Hitcase Pro+ is a complete protection and adventure recording system for your iPhone. It’s an enabling device that lets you capture your outdoor adventures for sharing in realtime.

Shoot, send and share amazing footage, whenever, and wherever you are.

Why Hitcase?

News, Waterproof iPhone Case.

It’s almost embarrassing when our customers can explain the benefits of the Hitcase better than we can :-)

This video interview with Paul McDermott from one of our distributors Hitfar, explains how he replaced his Gopro with the Hitcase Pro. He goes over the ease of use and wider angle options you get with the Hitcase mounts and demonstrates how he uses the ChestR.

A nice bonus at the end is Paul’s cool footage using the iPhone 5S and Hitcase.
