The Problem

When you think of extreme protection, do the words big or bulky come to mind? Have you ever noticed that good looking cases aren’t protective and protective cases aren't good-looking? We have too, and today, we are back on Kickstarter to change the way people view protection once and for all.

Combining our own Eggdrop impact protection technology with our new premium line of leather and carbon fiber like finishes, we are finally proud to present the SolidSuit case.

SolidSuit blends high quality materials with impact protection technology to make your premium iPhone look and stay premium

Why Are We Back On KickStarter? 

A year and a half ago we came to Kickstarter to fund the CrashGuard bumper case, the most protective and minimalistic case ever created. Thanks to people like you that support us, we were able to not only grow as a company, and develop new and innovative technologies, but also begin our journey towards creating the perfect case. Time has passed, and we now need you once again to overcome the last step.

Thank you again for all that you have made possible! 

Your Choice of Leather or Carbon Fiber

To bring the premium look and feel of Leather and Carbon Fiber to our impact protective formula, we use state of the art material science blends. The SolidSuit will be available in two finishes, classic Leather, in black or dark blue, or reception-friendly Carbon Fiber. You get to choose if you want to go timeless with the leather like design or futuristic with Carbon Fiber!

Goodbye Cracks

Our EggDrop Technology provides impact protection for drops of at least 11 feet, far exceeding military grade drop tests. That's more than the average height from a 1 story tall building, and definitely more than the average drop.

Fat Free Case 

Cut just for you!
Cut just for you!

In order for our case to be as unobtrusive as possible, our goal was to keep the width of our products under 2 millimeters and the weight under one ounce or 30 grams. We not only accomplished this, but also designed it to follow the curvature of the iPhone to retain the original feel. The result is that the case is so slim and weightless that you will barely notice it. 

Hold It Right There

The SolidSuit’s coating prevents it from slipping at the wrong moment, yet allows it to easily slip in and out of your pockets. The two new finishes, environmentally-friendly leather, and carbon fiber, personalize the texture of the cases as well as their appearance. With the creases on the leather edition, you will now have a solid grip; the carbon-fiber edition, on the other hand, has more of a fine glossy finish.

You might imagine impact protection material to be inflated and easily scratched, but you could not be further from the truth. The SolidSuit will  protect your iPhone from all the sharp items commonly found in your pocket, bag, or purse without any reduction in impact protection. 

A Case for The Environment

We love how iPhone leather cases have that exceptional feel but we are turned off by the environmental implications of using animal leather. To solve this, we synthesized a leather finish that mimics the touch and appearance of natural leather. The result is so remarkable that you will question whether it truly is 100% genuinely animal friendly (hint: it is). With the same logic, our Carbon Fiber case is harmless to the environment too. 

Wide Cutout for Easy Access

Our top priority is the safety of your phone. However, without being able to charge your phone, no amount of protection is useful. If you have used our CrashGuard bumper before and contacted us about this, please know that we have heard you and taken your feedback to heart. The new opening is larger and will allow for use with most off-the-shelf charging cables.

Risks and challenges

Our successful experience from our previous KickStarter projects minimizes our risk for the SolidSuit. We worked really hard to make sure that the challenges we met in the past would not affect us this time around.

We’ve been working with a new production partner for some time now to make sure we can deliver all the cases on time. Our experience in dealing with unexpected events will help us overcome any challenge that may come our way.

All the products that you can see in the videos and the pictures are final prototypes and exactly what you will get.

One of the most likely issues that can happen is that more people contribute than anticipated and we are prevented from shipping everyone’s rewards on time. If this happens, we will work on a first come first serve basis to make sure our early backers get their products as fast as possible.

As with our previous projects, if any delays occur, we will keep you posted in timely updates.
