Crusta Is a Musta if You Don't Want to Bust a Phone

The iPhone 6 is beautiful, but you probably want to protect it without adding too much bulk. The Crusta case from Amzer ($45) might be the solution. Thanks to a robust set of color choices, you can have a unique design combination, 42 combinations in all. Plus, you can still show off that gold iPhone 6, thanks to the tempered glass back. They also have a tempered glass screen protector as an option. The effect makes the Crusta look and feel like just a bumper, but it provides all around coverage with six-foot drop protection and dust proof connections.

Customers get to choose a color for the shell and a different color for the ring, creating a two-tone combination. It could be the colors of your favorite team or your school. They also include a rugged 360-degree belt clip holster which is quite handy. The iPhone can be facing inward or out with the holster. I like the unique color styles as it would allow me to tell my iPhone apart from my family's iPhones at a glance, yet we could all benefit from the protection of a Crusta case.
