Recently when I was out to dinner with my family,  I had to laugh because almost every person had a cell phone close at hand.  There were entire tables of people, ours included, that were carrying on lively conversations while checking their phones. (note, I don’t allow phones at the table at home)

It made me think of how far cell phones have come, and how they’ve become such a big part of our lives.  My cell phone is within my reach 24/7.  It keeps me organized, stores all the phone numbers and information I need, holds all of my appointments, even reminds me when I need to do something all while keeping me connected with ……..well, virtually everyone!

You probably know I’m a planner, I like to be prepared for “what if”.  Having a case for our phones is like insurance, and has always been a must in our house.  I remember when Allison and I were riding the lift up a mountain in Utah and we wanted to take pictures with our phones.  Panic set in as I held on to my phone for dear life, thinking about what what would happen to my phone if it slipped out of my hands?

Protect Your Cell Phone No Matter Where You Are

Allison is the clumsy one in our house, always dropping and misplacing her phone.  Heck, we even found her phone in the refrigerator once lol.  It’s taken many a tumble down the driveway, stairs and numerous other places.  But that’s not to say, my phone hasn’t met the concrete a time or two, and I’m quickly reminded of the time Steve lost his out in a field and drove over it with the Artic Cat!  I even got a call from my mom the other day telling me the dreaded “I dropped my phone in the toilet” story!  I think that one is everyone’s worst fear!

I’ve always been a big advocate of making sure our phones are protected.  I mean, we spend a lot of money on them, and rely on them more than anything……… why would you NOT keep it protected?  I know many phones have pretty sleek designs, but there’s no reason you can’t have a case that’s just as sleek looking.

I don’t know if you’ve ever held an iPhone with no case, but there’s not much to hold on to!  It’s slick and smooth, making it super easy to slip out of your hand, or pocket.  I love a case that gives me a little bit of bulk and I prefer one with some grip, like the PureGear DualTek iPhone case I’ve been using for a few weeks now!

A case that is designed for the unexpected!

PureGear DualTek iPhone cases are smooth and slick, like our phones, but the silicon grips on the sides make it really easy to hold.  They’re not as bulky as some cases I’ve used, making them easy to get in and out of a pocket.  They come in some really cool colors, making them look trending and chic, yet rugged enough to provide impact protection with the shock absorbing corners for and 360-degree protection with a screen shield to protect from scratches. SWEET!! This case can absorb shock from falls up to 6 feet!

Our phone is our life, why are we not protecting it? PureGear’s DualTek® Extreme Shock Cases provides the best protection against bumps, smacks, and knocks.
