5 Tough iPhone 4/4S Cases

Extra-tough iPhone protection

Just because you want to protect your iPhone doesn't mean you have to get a boring plain case to do so. Whether you're a gal who is likely to bang up her phone in extreme sports or just rough on your poor phone on a daily basis, here are five cases that will keep your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S safe.


One of the best-known names for keeping cell phones safe, Otterbox creates iPhone cases that have three layers of protection -- a membrane that protects the screen, a hard polycarbonate shell to ward off bumps and bruises and a silicon skin to cushion it from falls. And the really good news is that your iPhone will look good while it's safe! The Otterbox Defender for iPhone 4 or 4S comes in a variety of cute colors. $50

Marc by Marc Jacobs Wristlet

If your poor phone gets the most damage when you're out at night without a purse -- just shoving your iPhone in your pocket or carrying it in your hand without any type of protection -- a good solution to keep your phone safe is a wristlet. With the Turnlock Python Shine Wristlet by Marc by Marc Jacobs, you can tuck your iPhone in this cute pouch, then keep it close by on your wrist so that it's both accessible and protected from accidental drops. $88

This may be the coolest iPhone accessory we've ever seen. The DryCASE is a 100 percent waterproof, and you literally vacuum the air out of the pouch so that it is completely airtight and safe, even if you get it wet. Even cooler -- an earphone port comes out of the case so that you can safely listen to music on your iPhone or take a phone call while doing some stand-up paddle boarding on the lake or taking a dip in the pool. $40
