Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy S5 is set to be released April 11th and is said to be one of the most versatile and environmental-proofed phone they’ve ever created. Mainly, the fact that it’s water-resistant is a huge selling point. However, it’s still not drop proof and we all know what happens to a smartphone when dropped. That’s why despite the fact that devices get better and better, many of us still use cases to protect our investments. I like using rugged cases because they protect the best, but they don’t always look that great. Urban Armor Gear however not only protect, but look good doing it.

The new UAG gear for the Samsung Galaxy S5 features a military spec design with a hard armor shell for, soft rubber core and bumpers for shock absorbancy, and an HD screen protector for front protection. All of this in a feature-lite construction. It will be available soon and will come in 5 different colors of your choosing: Aero (blue), Maverick (clear), Navigator (white), Outland (orange) and Scout (black).
