Calling all Apple fanatics: Have you managed to get your hands on the iPhone 7 yet? If you have then listen up, and if you haven’t don’t delay any longer. Urban Armor Gear‘s new iPhone 7 range has just launched in our online store, and trust us on this: you won’t want to miss out.

Known for their instantly recognizable military-inspired designs, UAG has consistently been providing the smartphone market with durable and resilient cases for years, and their new range is no exception.

UAG’s patented composite design combines a hard outer shell with a soft impact resistant core, while the unique shape of their cases also provides structural rigidity. Each case gives full access to all ports and a soft rubberized screen surround and rear skid pads provide 360 degree protection from scratches and abrasions.

But if you’re still feeling skeptical, all of UAG’s cases have also passed the military drop-test standards, so you know your iPhone 7 is in safe hands.

Our favourite is the UAG Trooper case that lets your store your bank cards inside it! Prices for the UAG cases start at €39.99, and you can view the full range here.
