If you read the site you’ll know that I am a huge fan of Lifeproof’s cases. I liked the one for my iPhone 4S but the thinner, more refined iPhone 5 case takes things to an entirely new level.

Combine that with the amazing experience of using an iPod touch as an underwater video camera thanks to Lifeproof and there should be no doubt that this is one case line worth checking out.

That’s why our last few minutes on the floor at CES 2013 were spent speaking to Jonathan Wagner, Lifeproof’s Communications Director.

It seems that most every case manufacturer is getting into the durable, water-resistant or water proof case market but it is Lifeproof that stands out in the marketplace.

The cases have won awards and the booth was packed the entire time I was there. The reason is clear. Lifeproof’s cases hold up to the promise they make. The cases are rugged and truly keep your device protected. And they are waterproof. (That’s waterproof not water-resistant.) We asked Jonathan Wagner about the company’s meteoric rise. Here’s our conversation.
