Ballistic officially arrives in the Philippines


Once upon a time, when you needed a seriously tough case to protect your phone, there was only one brand you can turn to. The one named after a semiaquatic fish-eating mammal of the weasel family.

Today, however, the game changes with the arrival of Ballistic in the local market.

So, what so special about Ballistic cases?

Well, for starters, their cases are tough. And I seriously mean tough. But that shouldn’t really come as a surprise from a company whose name is Ballistic with a tagline “Perfecting Protection.”

Ballistic Jewel Series

What they do offer, though, that others don’t – or at least the ones I’ve seen out in the market right now – is a guarantee their cases can survive a certain height drop. And by height, I don’t mean some sissy height, like a few inches or from a height of a pocket. The minimum height a Ballistic case can survive is 1.8 meters or roughly around 6 feet.

And that’s just the minimum.

Ballistic Hard Core Series

Their toughest case – the aptly named Ballistic Hard Core series – can survive drops from 3.6 meters high, or nearly 12 feet.

And for those of you who love the water, they’ve got one for you too – the Hydra series.
