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.

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. Chief editor at Tyres and Soles.

  • The @pnwcomponents Loam lever and Rainer dropper post is the goldilocks of set ups. With buttery smooth motion and an incredibly light lever action, this is a premium grade system that won’t blow your budget. 😊 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • We’ve been testing the new Seral, Savu and Kitsuma packs from @ospreyaustralia. All three packs offer something different and are aimed at day rides where you can carry the bare minimum such as the Kitsuma, or pack a little more with the Seral and Savu. The Kitsuma and the Seral use a bladder system. The Savu is a lumbar pack that has been designed to carry two bottles (no bladder). Whichever style of pack or riding you do, there’s now a great range to choose from. It’s good to see Osprey focusing on more mtb specific designs and what riders are looking for. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
