Maximum protection. Minimalist design.

  • Deliberate Design
    People love everything about their devices. They should also love everything about what protects them.

    And while other cases may sacrifice substance for style, the Ballistic team feels that Perfecting Protection™ can only be attained by achieving both.

    Every design element of a Ballistic case serves a protective function. Yes, aesthetics and tactile feedback are a vital part of the overall Ballistic experience, but protection must be the priority. After all, if there’s no function under the form, it’s a burden not a benefit.

  • Durable Materials
    All Ballistic cases are designed to take a hit and come through intact, right down to its reinforced corners. And that level of protection begins with materials that last.

    Ballistic uses low-durometer (read: hard but not too hard) compounds specifically formulated to absorb high-energy impact while maintaining an exceptional ergonomic feel. These compounds are unique in the industry so Ballistic devotes a significant amount of R&D to working with them. For example, it’s not unusual for a Ballistic case to be repeatedly dropped, slid, pulled apart and put together, exposed to various environmental conditions, even inserted and removed from a pocket hundreds of thousands of times.

    Our mantra is simple: Design it right and prove it through testing. So, whether it absorbs shock, reduces impact, resists scratches or repels water, Ballistic will make sure each case provides maximum protection, and then some.

  • Disciplined Process
    While a great deal of expertise and ingenuity go into the creation of every Ballistic case we make, it’s our devotion to discipline that separates us from other case makers.

    The foundation for the methodical philosophy of how we design and work comes from over a decade designing military equipment that must stand up to the extreme, harsh conditions of battle. This process includes extensive verification testing protocols and complete engineering & manufacturing documentation to assure quality and consistency from the first case to the last.

    Without our disciplined approach, we couldn’t have created innovations like HexTec™ Six-Sided Drop Protection, shock-absorbing Air Gap Suspension Springs or even our enduring 180° rotating holster clip. But that’s what happens when your goal is Perfecting Protection™.

Most drops impact the corners, so Ballistic reinforces each one with shock-absorbing silicone.

Every Ballistic case is designed so the screen won’t touch the surface when the device is laid flat. After all, no one wants to view cat videos through cracked glass.

Drop Protection

Drop Protection

Calls aren’t the only things that get dropped. That’s why every Ballistic case is engineered to protect against at least a 6-foot drop.
