The reason you got into an iPhone 5 wasn’t just for the admiration of your peers.  It’s a svelte and powerful device.  However, one wrong manuever in the bathroom can lead to a water logged iPhone, which we assure you is not covered by Apple’s warranty.  So if you have a penchant for mishap you’ll probably want to turn to an iPhone case that is resistant to just about anything you can throw at it.

Lifeproof’s iPhone 5 case appears to be second to none.  This case is water tight, and impervious to dust, dirt, water, snow, and really anything that is visible to the human eye.  Dropping (or sinking) it from 6ft shouldn’t be a problem, and thanks to a latch system the Lightning dock is easily accessible without compromising security.  And unlike some other cases of this ilk, the camera’s lens and flash are left unhindered, as is the precious Apple logo. Of note, the Lifeproof iPhone 5 case measures 5.41” x 2.64” x 0.48” and weighs 1.5oz.

It comes in white or black, and sells for $80.  However, it’s currently out of stock, though you can sign up to be notified of when it’s available again.
