Best Military Grade Phone Cases

Let’s look at the best military grade phone cases available for iPhone and Android.

Why take your phone on the mission?

Because modern smartphones are amazing devices – they can leverage GPS, GLONASS, Galileo satnav systems for precise location finding – in a fraction of the space of a dedicated GPS unit.

Secondly, there are some cool new Situational Awareness (SA) apps – like the Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) – and these require the full processing power of a smartphone.

Ok, we’ve established why you might take your phone into the fight – but these are relatively fragile devices. Hence we need a military grade phone case.

What’s a military grade phone case or tactical phone case?

It’s a smartphone case made tough – often ruggedized far beyond a regular consumer phone case.

They are usually offered in military friendly colors such as OD green or coyote – this ensures they meet the uniform requirements of the army.

Lastly, some of them have features to integrate with plate carriers, or other MOLLE compatible load bearing equipment.

Here’s the military grade phone cases and MOLLE accessories we’ll be reviewing in this article.

These are military grade tactical smart device cases – and this is the most rugged solution you can buy.

NOTE: The IMPCT line provides protection against drops and shock – but these are not waterproof.
