iPhone 6/6 Plus Case of the Week: Pelican ProGear Voyager

It's that time of year again. Right after a new iPhone comes out there is the inevitable deluge of great cases to protect your new investment. This happens with every iPhone release, but perhaps never more markedly than with the introduction of the completely new form factors of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. If ever an iPhone needed a case, it is these larger models, with their increased real estate, slick, rounded edges, and extra weight. Rather than clump a bunch of individual cases together into one roundup I'll be focusing on one great iPhone 6/6 Plus case each week over the course of the coming months. This week's featured case is Pelican's ProGear Voyager.

I really have to emphasize the fact that even though this case is an extreme-duty case, it still maintains a sleek, low profile that doesn't make it obvious that it meets or exceeds the prestigious MIL-STD-810 military standards of protection. The Voyager (iPhone 6 $50, iPhone 6 Plus $60) has a deceptively simple looking design, but don't be fooled by its minimalist appearance. This case has been precision crafted to provide an exceptional level of shock protection to your iPhone. With four layers of protection, the Voyager lives up to its name as a case that is ready for adventures.

Simple and Practical

The lines of this case strike me as very contemporary, with bold accents of texture and color, making this case easier to grip (which is an especially relevant consideration with the new larger iPhones) and easier to find. The bottom edge of the Voyager case  has a rubber bumper which contains two flaps that serve to plug the openings to the power port as well as the headphone jack. The bottom bumper also houses a cleverly designed, acoustic-enhancing speaker cover that doesn't just protect the iPhone's speaker, it channels the sound towards the user and smoothly amplifies it. If you already have the iPhone 6/6 Plus, then you already know that Apple's latest iPhones have a great sounding speaker, and unlike some other heavy-duty cases which tend to muffle the sound, the Voyager favorably enhances your iPhone's acoustic output. The Voyager also comes with a scratch-resistant, stick-on screen protector and a clip-on belt holster that doubles as a viewing stand. 


Pelican has been making high-end protective gear for decades and they bring their years of experience to bear with their latest lightweight, extreme-protection iPhone cases.
