We say “might,” because we haven’t tested it yet; but sandwiched between the hard exterior shell of Incase’s new Chisel case and the iPhone it protects is a second, soft case with a secret ingredient called Poron XRD — a material we’ve found almost unbelievably excellent at absorbing impact energy.
The case has siblings. The Chisel is $35, and actually the middle child of the iPhone 5-branch of Incase’s SYSTM line. At that price, it’s definitely the killer deal of the trio.
If that’s not enough case for you, the $50 Vise includes a detachable belt holster with rotating clip. Or there’s the $30 Hammer which ditches the two-layer system for lighter weight and with beefy protection just at the corners.
