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.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • Dreamy loam is hard to beat when it comes to riding surfaces and the Aquila feels right at home digging through it! 💥 #onzatires #loam
  • Check out the full review in our bio 👍. Have you tried merino? Generally, you can get a bit smelly with synthetic fabrics whereas @monsroyale merino handles body odours very well. We experienced zero odours on the trails or in the car on the way home where it usually starts to pong. We felt as fresh as when we first pulled them on. The beauty of this is that you don't need to bring a change of clothing with you. You can hop off the bike and into the local bar or cafe without clearing the place out. | Photo: @richardmcgibbon
  • Fusing function and form, @monsroyale merino clothing is a natural, biodegradable and sustainable fibre that outperforms man-made fabrics. Mons Royale clothing is continually tested and refined to ensure it's the best match for your body and performance. | Photos: @richardmcgibbon
  • Testing the Michelin Wild Enduro tyres. Praise the knobbly gods. 🙌 These things are gripper than spider-man’s palm gunk. @michelinbicycle |  Photo: @richardmcgibbon
