This brick of a case may be bulky for around-town use, but for the backcountry there’s nothing better. An onboard battery doubles the life of your phone and is recharged by a solar panel on the back.
The SLXtreme was also the only case in my test with a top-entry hatch, for better waterproofing, and sealed latches over every port. All told, this is one bombproof case that does more than most.

THE KNOCK: Though well recessed, the thin plastic screen cover doesn’t have you covered.
