When you think of rugged cases, giant, hulking enclosures usually come to mind. To me, rugged rarely ever means stylish and most of the rugged cases I’ve seen would take first place in an ugly contest. Most are really thick and completely cover the iPhone 4 the point where its no longer recognizable as such.
Ballistic looks to change that with the introduction of their new Ballistic Lifestyle case. It offers rugged protection with one defining feature, it’s thin. Unlike other rugged cases, this one is ultra-sleek but still offers maximum protection. Made from TPU material, the Ballistic Lifestyle surrounds the iPhone, protecting the sides, rear, and is raised up front to keep the glass off surfaces when placed face down. The corners of the case are reinforced and a bit thicker than the sides are. They also include silicone inserts that allow for more shock absorbency when dropped on the corners. This is something missing from regular slim cases and is a needed feature seeing as more damage comes from when the iPhone is dropped on its corners.
The Ballistic Lifestyle is available in two colors, translucent smoke and translucent blue. Each includes a set of black and red bumpers to use. You can pick one up at the Ballistic site for $29.99 here.
