The Griffin Survivor+Catalyst Waterproof Case could very well be the easiest-to-fit iPhone 5 waterproof case ever. And in all probability, it’s also the best despite how easy it is to fit on the iPhone.
iPhone 5 waterproof cases aren’t all that many in the market. The ones that are available aren’t all that good except for a couple of them. We did a take on Otterbox Armor series which had the waterproof feature. However, it’s an Armor case that’s built to protect from many other things too.
If you’re looking specifically for a made-to-be-waterproof case, the Griffin’s one can very well be your answer.
Before we dive into the review (no pun intended), here are the stats:
- Waterproof up to 3 meters
- IP68 rating
- 6-foot drop protection (tested to 6.6 ft)
- TPE shock absorbers
- Silicone gasket
While the Griffin waterproof iPhone 5 case is easy to fit and looks like a child’s play, the interesting cocktail of materials used sheds light on how good the performance is.
There’s polycarbonate frame and rear cover. Then the latches and the control buttons are made of nylon. The Home button comes with a special TPE (thermoplastic elastomer).
Now all of this makes up for a good sealed-shut waterproof iPhone 5 case but is it bulky? No, sir, it ain’t. You see because they’ve made a conscious decision to go with a lot of thermo plastics and PC, the whole thing becomes light-weight.
Now all you need to get started with underwater photography is Griffin Survivor+Catalyst waterproof case. It’s easy to fix, easy to use and comes with all the accessibility you’d want. It’s almost as if the case weren’t there.
