The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are both decided upgrades from Apple’s earlier phones: they’re faster, the screens look better and, once you’ve used one for 5 minutes, the company’s earlier phones start to look ridiculously small. Unfortunately, finding a protective case for the new models has proven difficult. The upscaled designs from cases that worked so well for an iPhone 5/5s just look comically large and unwieledy.
SwitchEasy just announced the Helix, a protective case that weighs only 26g. They call the design “Aero-Tech,” claiming that corner bumpers and air pockets deliver full MIL-STD 810G certified protection without all the bulk.
The HELIX cases will be available in black or white/red soon for a list price of $29.99 via the company website or authorized retail and online locations.
