these days, we depend on our iPhone for just about anything and the last thing we want is to have it thrashed, thus leaving us stranded and lost. so we dig into the market and suit up our precious one with rugged cases but no matter how rugged your iPhone case maybe, the screen remains as venerable as ever. however, that wouldn’t be the case for the Case-Mate Tank Cases for iPhone 4/4S. the Tank sports a ‘hard, impact resistant exterior’ with an interior lined with silicone that absorbs shock that should take on virtually any beatings that you can imagine of. in addition to its tough polycarbonate hard case is a retractable screen shield that further ensure that your phone’s delicate screen is protected from impacts. a soft touch exterior gives assurance of touch-friendliness, and let it slips in and out of pockets with ease. in short, the Tank is one of the few cases in the market that actually offers a complete all-round protection to your otherwise fragile iPhone 4/4S and adding to its credential is has met or exceeded the U.S. Department of Defense standard for sand/dust, shock/drop, wind/rain and vibration. so if you have an active lifestyle, this is perhaps the case you might want to give it a thought. at $60 a pop, it is certainly not cheap for a case but yet not ostentatiously priced if you think about the protection it has to offer. the Tank is offered in four color combos: black/black, military green/orange, and for a more feminine touch, it also comes in black/pink, and as well as white/pink. roll past the jump for a few larger views and a video of it being put through some beatings.
