Pair of cases protect phone from impact, shock, environment

Protective enclosure manufacturer Pelican has announced the availability of the new CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault and CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector cases for the iPhone 5. The new ruggedized cases provide military-grade protection for Apple's newest smartphone.

The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case is made with engineering-grade aluminum and polymer materials. The Vault's full-enclosure design provides defense from wind-driven rain, snow and dust, along with insulating elastomeric layer that offers shock and impact protection from a height of 72 inches.

Each function button is milled from aircraft-grade aluminum, with a water-resistant membrane covering the microphone and speaker of the phone. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault case also features a screen cover with anti-scratch technology, an optical-grade Dragontrail glass camera port, and flush-fitting stainless steel hex-head machine screws.

Two levels of protection are designed into the CE1150 Pelican ProGear Protector case. The first line of defense is a shock-deflecting outer shell that saves the iPhone's glass face from direct impact on flat surfaces. The second level is a soft, elastomeric interior lining to protect the device from scratches and impact. Additionally, the outer shell has a smooth finish to allow the case to slide easily into pockets and bags.

Both cases are available now. The CE1180 Pelican ProGear Vault retails for $80. The CE 1150 Pelican ProGear Protector series is available in multiple colors, and sells for $40.
