Clearly the “military” part in Griffin’s Military Grade Survivor case for the iPhone doesn’t refer to the color. While olive drab is an option, the majority of the rugged cases come in candy colors more suited to a pre-schooler’s toy box than the killing fields of, well, whichever countries the U.S is currently at war with.
That’s not to say it isn’t tough. The blurb says that the case has been “independently tested to meet conditions outlined in US Department of Defense MIL-STD-810 and UK Department of Defense Def-Stan 00-35.”
The Survivor combines a polycarbonate shell with a silicone wrap to produce a rainproof, dust-proof case that will keep the iPhone safe, and a multi-position clip keeps it out of the way when you’re shooting people in the face. You can pick different colors for all three, which is exactly how I ended up with the monstrosity above.
For all its protection, the case is fairly cheap, costing $50 whichever garish color combo you choose. And amusingly, the folks at Griffin put a link for pastel-colored styluses on the product page, just in case you want to sketch a little drawing in the middle of a firefight.
