The LifeProof case for the iPhone 5 is a terrific way to keep your phone safe from life’s bumps, bruises and mishaps. In addition to all the other protection it offers, the LifeProof case is waterproof. That means you can dump it in the toilet or leave it in the rain and feel confident it will still work. But what if, for example, you are spending time at a lake and don’t want to worry about your phone getting wet? Moreover, what if you want your iPhone safe from water damage AND able to float? That’s where LifeProof’s LifeJacket comes in.
The LifeJacket is a $39.99 accessory that adds an every layer of protection while making your phone completely buoyant. The LifeProof LifeJacket is molded from soft, buoyant foam that slips over the iPhone once it is inside a LifeProof case, and comes off just as quickly. The LifeJacket adds an additional layer of shock protection to your LifeProof Case and… it floats. As the company notes, “whether you are rafting, sailing, fishing or swimming, don the LifeJacket and take the plunge!”
We wanted to test it out and decided to really put it to the test. Introducing … Porter vs the iPhone 5.
