Here is a case that Hannibal would have lovingly embraced, and why not? You could potentially use it (with iPhone encased) as a small personal shield for say your sword hand, what with that steel latch fused to the bottom there. Ok, that might be a bit much, but it will protect your iPhone better than anything short of stuffing it into a bank vault. When out conquering Romans, you can't afford to have your iPhone get smashed on a rock, or crushed under a falling elephant, which will likely ruin your day! OtterBox has a serious Armor case coming for the serious conqueror (insert Police, Fire, Soldier, EMT, Construction worker, etc.)... All "proofs" apply (dust, drop, crush, water)--coming soon!
