Though, I like for it to be current with out it being a distraction. My proclivity for being a gear head will typically compete for house with my nature as a minimalist. Nevertheless, I acknowledge that I want to guard my gear, together with my cellphone, when it tags alongside for the trip. Many ruggedized instances available on the market I discovered to be cumbersome and lack utility exterior of simply defending the cellphone. The trade-off all the time gave the impression to be having a Constanza-sized pockets in my pocket or burying the cellphone in my bag with no matter minimalist case I carry day-after-day. I would like to have the ability to shield the cellphone whereas additionally preserving out of the way in which to get pleasure from what was in entrance of me. Enter Juggernaut cellphone instances.

The ethos of the Juggernaut instances is to guard, mount, and join units inside an ecosystem of equipment and instances. The instances are constructed from a rugged polymer mix and incorporate a mounting system personalized to suit completely different equipment. Their advertising is geared towards a navy buyer, however just lately have shifted in direction of the out of doors adventurer with the introduction of their ADVNTR lineup. Together with the ADVNTR sequence is the ENDVR and OPRTR. Every case is tailor-made towards an exercise or mission set. The IMPCT was the primary design to come back from Juggernaut instances. Meant for navy use, it was acknowledged by the out of doors neighborhood as a low-profile design that survives probably the most intense adventures. The ADVNTR lineup, together with the opposite designs, is the subsequent iteration of the IMPCT case. Each the ADVNTR and OPRTR instances are drop-tested and have a top-loading design. They supply further grip surfaces, lanyard attachments, and a latch system that is still mounted to the case. The earlier IMPCT top-loading latch system disconnects from the case fully, making it vulnerable to being misplaced. The OPRTR incorporates a fast disconnect latch for integrating with a set of QD cables and mounts for navy and regulation enforcement use. Final within the line-up is the ENDVR cellphone case. The ENDVR is their lowest profile design that’s meant for on a regular basis carry and is the one case of their line-up with front-face loading. The Juggernaut cellphone instances are designed for units which can be already IP68-rated. The instances themselves, nevertheless, should not designed to make the system waterproof. Their instances match a myriad of sensible units. Apple’s iPhones from the sequence X to the most recent iPhone 14 line up are suitable with a number of of the Juggernaut instances. They accommodate older Google Pixel fashions, Samsung telephones, and some tablets. Whereas not each cellphone mannequin aligns with each Juggernaut case, they do share the identical mounting options to suit throughout the Juggernaut ecosystem.

The mounting equipment are the place the Juggernaut instances come into their very own. Every case has safe locking tabs on both aspect, permitting the consumer to interface with on-body or car mounts. The car mounts embody a RAM mounting interface for individuals who make the most of the RAM ball mounting equipment. These are constructed for car over-landing or those that simply want hands-free use whereas commuting. Mounting options are additionally obtainable for bike handlebars and embody choices for inductive charging. Carrying a wise system in a pants pocket or stuffing it in a bag isn’t all the time handy when engaged in out of doors actions. The on-body mounts from Juggernaut preserve the system safe and helpful when wanted. Their sternum mount is made to affix the cellphone case to a mountaineering pack through a sternum strap. This mounts the system at chest degree and incorporates a hinge to permit entry by folding down the system to entry the contact display screen. Different mounts just like the clip and belt mount permit for choices to connect the instances to a belt, numerous straps, or PALS webbing. These mounting equipment construct out an ecosystem that retains the sensible system shielded from the weather however available when required for mapping, GPS, or taking a photograph.

My private IMPCT case for the iPhone 12 accompanies me on many hikes and fishing journeys. The clip mount is probably the most versatile for my wants. If I’m fly-fishing or searching, the cellphone clip mount stays hooked up to a chest rig or backpack shoulder strap. That is nice for taking a video or a fast image from a first-person standpoint. The mounting tabs have a decent grip preserving the system safe, however are simple sufficient to detach with one hand if wanted. I’ve dropped my iPhone down mountain rocks, slid over coarse gravel, and brought a dip into creek beds. The case took each beating I might throw at it. The one scratches on my cellphone now are from after I used different instances. Even after I clip the cellphone to my belt line, it’s mild and slim sufficient to the place I don’t discover it. Mounted to my chest or my belt line, the cellphone is on the prepared for after I want it. This retains me centered on the second and permits me to concentrate to my environment. Part of being open air is being current in nature. If you need to carry your attention-grabbing system with you, make certain it doesn’t take your consideration away from what’s necessary in nature.
