Pelican implements military-grade protection into new iPhone cases
Protective enclosure manufacturer <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282436==http://www.pelican.com" rel='nofollow'>Pelican</a> has announced the availability of the new CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault and CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector cases for the iPhone 5. The new ruggedized cases provide military-grade protection for Apple's newest smartphone.<br />
<br />
The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282434==http://www.pelican.com/mobile/vault_smartphone.html" rel='nofollow'>CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault</a> case is made with engineering-grade aluminum and polymer materials. The Vault's full-enclosure design provides defense from wind-driven rain, snow and dust, along with insulating elastomeric layer that offers shock and impact protection from a height of 72 inches.<br />
<br />
Each function button is milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, with a water-resistant membrane covering the microphone and speaker of the phone. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case also features a screen cover with anti-scratch technology, an optical-grade Dragontrail glass camera port, and flush-fitting stainless steel hex-head machine screws.<br />
<br />
Two levels of protection are designed into the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282435==http://www.pelican.com/mobile/protector_smartphone.html" rel='nofollow'>CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector</a> case. The first line of defense is a shock-deflecting outer shell that saves the iPhone's glass face from direct impact on flat surfaces. The second level is a soft, elastomeric interior lining to protect the device from scratches and impact. Additionally, the outer shell has a smooth finish to allow the case to slide easily into pockets and bags. <br />
<br />
Both cases are available now. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault retails for $80. The CE 1150 Pelican ProGear Protector series is available in multiple colors, and sells for $40.
