How do you protect your phone in the wild?

There are a ton of phone cases on the market all doing pretty much the same thing, providing a protective layer against the hard, wet, rocky floor and your beloved hi-tech device.

A lot of those cases resemble something a marine would haul out of a transport plane, but have you tried keeping one of those in your pocket? What Lander has created is a case that protects your iPhone, without the unnecessary bulk.

Look and Feel

What we like about the Torrey iPhone case is the subtleties of the overall design. The case uses a slimline design so it reduces bulk, especially good when in your pocket. 

The case has a slightly rubberised, pebble-like texture, which gives it a very nice grippy feel in your hands.  It also includes a lanyard for extra safety when taking those crucial selfies.

Features

The Lander Torrey case uses a Thermoline™ insulation material which helps to keep your iPhone at an optimal working temperature in extreme climates. Temperatures that swing outside of 0-35°C can negatively impact daily performance and damage your iPhone battery.

In terms of protection, the Torrey case uses a highimpact-resistant TPU construction which can withstand a fall from up to 3 meters. In addition to this, the Torrey’s has several crush zones situated around the case. These are designed to crumple and take the impact, rather than the phone taking the full brunt.

We have dropped the phone several times, on purpose and by accident, and it is still working fine. Maybe it was the crush zones that helped?

For the extreme selfie-takers, there’s a detachable lanyard that helps prevent your iPhone from dropping, along with a smooth pebble-like outer case texture providing a secure grip for your hand in all weather conditions. The lanyard has a reflective stitched detail to catch the light – making it easy to spot in the dark, with a head torch for example.

All that’s left is to pick a colour. The Lander Torrey iPhone Case comes in neutral taupe (shown here), black and exclusive mauve and blue for those after a splash of colour.

We are all in uncertain times with regard to COVID-19 and strong measures are being taken on all fronts to ‘flatten the curve’ and minimise the impacts on our society and economy. 
We all need to exercise some social responsibility and adhere to the advice being offered from medical professionals and those who are calling the shots - social distancing, self isolation, hygiene etc.
BUT -  if your circumstance allows it, it is as good a time as ever to head out on the trails to get some fresh air and exercise. 
Many of the small businesses which service us as riders are heading into tough times also. A lot of interstate travellers have cancelled trips to Tassie and your local bike shop, cafe, or pub needs your patronage more than ever!
One last thing - now is a time we should be conscious of riding well within our abilities so as to not risk placing unnecessary pressure on the health system at this uncertain juncture.

Happy trails!
