Your iPhone’s just another tool, right? Well, with their line of Stanley cases for iPhone 5, Incipio has taken that pretty literally. The cell phone accessories maker has paired with tool manufacturer Stanley for this collection of tough, professional-grade carrying cases and covers designed to for the jobsite.
We’ve reviewed a lot of cell phone accessories in the past, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a line of cases specifically geared for some of the toughest trades out there.
New at Pure Mobile, the Stanley line will certainly look at home next to the rest of your tools, with models in classic construction colors like black and yellow (though they’re also available in more subtle tones like black and grey, or even black and pink, for the ladies.)
And whatever your job throws at you, there’s a Stanley case that can handle it. Models like Dozer are extra-rugged, with a plextonium under-layer, shock-absorbing silicone outer, and screen protector. The Dozer even goes so far as to provide camera and button protectors that can be closed to keep dust and dirt out.
But different tasks require different levels of protection. And while models like the Highwire, Technician, and Foreman also use a combination of plextonium and either silicone or NGP in their multi-layer construction, each is tailor-made to suit the task at hand.
For a sleeker, slimmer look that’s still up to par, we’d recommend the Foreman. While it’s impact resistant, with a plextonium bumper and easy-to-grip silicone core, it’s got a bit of a lower profile than styles like the Highwire or Dozer, which really do look like something you’d hang from your toolbelt.
But whatever the style for you, Incipio’s Stanley line is definitely at the top of a very short list of iPhone 5 accessories we’d actually trust at a construction site.
