Protective Jambox Is Like A Leather Jacket On A Rhinoceros

Back when I wrote at Wired, I called Waterfield’s keyboard case a “signal of the end of civilization.” Who needs a coddling cover for a keyboard that is so tough it can keep working even after you have a tantrum and smash it on a marble topped table? Repeatedly? (Like a friend of mine did one time).

Now I actually use that same cover whenever I travel, so I’m a little more accepting of the new “CitySlicker for the Jawbone Mini Jambox,” a case for the toughest little speaker on the market.

The case is made from ballistic nylon and leather and weighs in at three ounces, or roughly 75 grams. Inside is a pocket for the speaker, and round back is a zip-up compartment for your cables.

Contrary to what some tech bloggers might claim, using this case will not immanentize the eschaton, or conjure up a comeback tour from the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. It will not cross the streams, nor accidentally switch your lightsaber on while it’s still in your pocket. But it will “protect” the milled-from-a-solid-block-of-aluminum Jambox mini from “damage,” and all for just $49.

Available in black or “grizzly brown.”
