If I were a candy, I’d be Butterfingers. But luckily, I’m charmed not to crunch my smartphone or tablet, thanks to the sweet addition of UrbanArmor Gear ($35 to $80) to my arsenal of outdoor, gym and city gadgets. The composite cases have a hard outer shell that’s tougher than a nut to crack—no matter how many times I’ve dropped it like it’s hot while listening to Snoop Dogg, my phone stays delightfully intact. The secret, apparently, is MIL-STD, a U.S. military certification of ruggedness… and way cleaner than an actual STD. Get yours—the case, that is—today.
