iPhone: G-Form Xtreme
While I think that the iPhone is a thing of beauty, it's far too fragile to be allowed out naked into the world I inhabit.
To give my iPhone a fighting chance, I've put mine into a G-Form Xtreme case. This is manufactured from Reactive Protection Technology, a material that stiffens on impact in order to absorb over 90 percent of the force. The case also adds significant grip to the otherwise slippery handset.
So far, despite a number of close calls with gravity, my iPhone lives on!
iPhone: Nutshell leather case
Since I usually have too much junk in my pockets to fit a phone, I carry my iPhone on a belt pouch. Not the sexiest of things, or so I'm told, but it means that I always have the phone with me, and the leather case adds a great deal of much needed extra protection.
The leather case I chose is from Nutshell. This company makes cases for all sorts of devices. I've bought one for pretty much every smartphone I've owned for over a decade and they've never let me down.
My case is oversized in order to fit the iPhone 5 inside the G-Form Xtreme case.
Notebook: SKB 3I waterproof notebook case
While for day-to-day usage I'm happy to throw my MacBook Pro into an old Targus case, if I'm taking it outdoors, I need something more robust. This is when I turn to my SKB 3I waterproof notebook case.
SKB 3I is a mil-standard waterproof cases built from ultra high-strength polypropylene copolymer resin, and featuring a gasketed, water and dust tight, submersible design that is resistant to corrosion and impact damage.
This case is designed to take notebooks up to 17-inch, and has space for other gear such as my iPhone, iPad, and my charger.
