Gear4 D3O Jumpsuit case for iPhone 6S

The D3O protective border proves its worth on a trail run

I’m very familiar with D3O protection as I have worn motorcycling clothing with it in. And because I already know how good D3O is at protecting bikers, I was thrilled to see that you can now buy an iPhone case that uses it.

DSC_3072-1Gear4 has just made an entire range of phone cases integrating D3O – and I opted to try out the one called ‘Jumpsuit’ priced at £29.99. It neatly wraps around the phone but doesn’t cover the screen. Still, it does the job. I carried this inside the key pocket of my North Face shorts on a 26km trail run last weekend and it actually fell out down through my shorts on to the hard surface of the Tissington Trail. The orange colour of the D3O also lends itself to IMG_20160618_161049making your iPhone look quite sporty/adventurey too.

OK, I know £29.99 seems a bit steep for an iPhone case, but you really are getting piece of mind with the Jumpsuit. If you’re outside a lot, then you’ll come to love that orange border for all the knocks it’s going to soak up.
