Meet Loopy®, the first case with a loop to StoptheDrop™
With phones getting bigger and harder to hold, we knew there had to be a better way to protect your device without adding bulk.
Then we thought, why drop it in the first place?
We're three brothers from Purdue and Indiana Universities who are looking to take our final prototype to the next level. We've been designing this case for nearly 3 years(!), using our early adopter customer feedback to create the best case possible. With winnings from IU and Purdue competitions we were able to secure our patent and get prototypes rolling!
We were able to produce a short run of these cases and our customers rated it 98%! Now we need your help to collect enough preorders to bring Loopy into high volume production.
We have manufacturers lined up and coordinators standing by to ensure that we put together the highest quality loopy case and deliver it in time for the holidays.
Available for the iPhone 6/6s, iPhone 6/6s PLUS, and now the Samsung Galaxy S6!
The first thing you'll notice is how secure and in control loopy feels. Loopy literally makes it hard to drop your phone.
Simply said, the iPhone 6 and especially the iPhone 6 plus is just too big for one handed use, even with their new 'double tap' feature. Loopy allows you to reach every square inch of your phone with ease.
Who isn't always carrying a million things at once? Simply flip grab and go. You don't know how nice having an extra hand is until you're in the loop!
Loopy holds you instead of the other way around, making your phone extremely comfortable to use. We've even designed loopy with a slightly angled loop for maximum comfort.
Cameras on phones are getting better and better while the phones themselves are getting harder and harder to hold. The Loopy allows you to feel secure in whatever position you have to put your phone in for the perfect photo.
Loopy has no problem fitting into even the slimmest pockets. If your phone fits in your pocket, so will Loopy.
Loops are tested for up to 10+ pounds of tug! Your phone weighs less than a pound so... your phones not going anywhere.
With the massive screen of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, it is extremely convenient to have a kickstand so you can kick back and watch videos.
Ditch the sweaty, hard-to-reach armband. All of your apps and music are conveniently in your hand.
One case equals endless possibilities.
The goal in creating Loopy was simple: make a case that protects your phone better than the rest, yet doesn’t add unnecessary bulk. We've German-engineered Loopy to give it everything you could possibly want in a perfectly balanced slim case.
Einstein once said “Make things as simple as possible, yet no simpler”. Loops are designed to be easy to install with as little working parts as possible, giving you reliable strength and easy interchangeability.
We studied the way user’s hold their phones and tested countless loop angle prototypes, and in doing so we were able to perfect the placement of the loop. This special loop angle and placement allows for users with any hand sizes to fit securely and comfortably in the loop. Even users who prefer to use more than one finger will feel right at home with this design. And we didn’t forget about lefties. We’ll be offering a choice of your hand preference to get you the perfect case made for your hand!
The case itself is made with a wrap around TPU blend bumper, protecting your phone from wear and tear 360 degrees around. This protection only adds 3mm to your phone, allowing you to keep that sleek, slim finish.
Cases also come with a raised front lip to protect your phone from face down drops or table tosses.
What’s a case if you can’t use it with all of your favorite accessories? Loopy has oversized ports to ensure that your devices plug in perfectly every time.
Loopy also has a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. You’ve trusted us with your smartphone protection. We return that trust by ensuring that this case is built with the highest quality materials made to outlast your next upgrade (and longer!).
See what the Pros are saying about Loopy:
Note: the original name for this case when we were designing was the Loopy Vibe, but now it’s just Loopy :)
"One of the highest rated slim cases that we've reviewed out of 3 dozen cases that we've personally used"

Our team eats, breathes and sleeps cases. Over the past three years we’ve learned so much about the key elements that create a case. We’ve tossed all of this knowledge to create the perfect case. Let’s take a quick look at how we got here!
After our dad cracked his phone after refusing a bulky case, we came up with the idea for loopy. Our core motto was to ‘stopthedrop and ditchthebulk’. So we made the thinnest case in the world, with a loop! It was fantastic! The loop did its job, but the case didn’t… A fall off the table for example would have probably ended poorly.
Onto the Loopy Pro! Protection, protection, and more protection!!! Tank-like protection and over 10x the bulk of the Loopy Slim. We accomplished our goal of creating a case that could take the ‘out of the loop’ drops, but we did so at the expense of our beliefs to create a non-obtrusive case that stopped drops.
Now for the Goldilocks theory. So we started too thin and unprotective and then went off the deep end and made something that was overkill with bulk. We’ve blended these two mindsets to make the case you’re backing today! The Loopy Vibe (now known as just “Loopy” because it’s perfect) is the perfect balance of sleek and protective. It can handle the occasional table drop or lap toss, but it’s still thin enough to make your forget it’s even there.
What is our goal amount going to be used for?
Producing a new product requires new tooling and minimum order quantities, which require capital to set in place. In order to fund everything, we need to establish our goal in preorders. This will ensure that we cover all of the costs necessary to get you your case in the highest quality and in a very timely manner. We have manufacturers in place and veteran coordinators by our side to help guide the way to bring you the best case you've ever used. Below is a timeline to help visually map out the process of making your new Loopy. We have communicated in depth with our manufacturers on lead times and do not foresee any holidays that will stall production throughout this production period.

Huge thanks to:
Big thanks to our dad for going through the agony of dropping his not even 24 hour old iPhone 4 and cracking the screen which led to crafting the first prototype! John is an avid triathlete and a small business owner in Chicago for 35 years. Thanks dad & happy birthday on the 11th!
Other special thanks to:
Bailee (acting), Clay (video), Laura (acting and waking up at 5am to work with the sun and filming!), Jay (rollercoaster video), John (Golden Gate Bridge marathon pic), Jeff (ULTRA video), Amanda (testimonial video), Alauria (pocket b-roll), Joey (countless slo-mo facedrops LOL), everyone who shared on Facebook!, those in the loop for helping us design Loopy and believing in us along the way!!!
Risks and challenges
Challenges and unforeseen obstacles can always arise when trying to introduce a new product. There is simply so much to manage at times. However, we are confident in our team's abilities, knowledge, and work ethic to get the job done right. We believe in being completely transparent with our backers and communicating updates as efficiently and effectively as possible. The past three years have thrown us tons of curveballs in terms of quality, production times, and even getting sideswiped by an unforeseen holiday or two. Luckily, we are wiser now and you didn't have to go through the agony with us!
We have manufacture relationships built with those who we've hand chosen and worked with before, while also having a strong understanding of the industry and a veteran coordinator standing by to help smooth any bumps that may occur with growth.
Also, it is notable to mention that we use the word undroppable in a sense to show that if this case is used properly with your finger in the loop, it will be *nearly* impossible to drop your phone. It is simply the easiest way to get the concept of proactive across. We do not make claims for the case being undroppable when used in any misused way or extreme conditions. Of course, Loopy is there to protect and we stand behind our product 100%. If you use Loopy responsibly, you'll be fine ;)
Thank you for believing in us here at Team Loopy. We promise to work around the clock to make sure you receive your new Loopy on time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
