Nite Ize Backbone Case Review
For those people looking for an extremely high quality rugged Treo or Centro case for the great outdoors or just a demanding work environment or weekend the new Nite Ize Backbone case will prove to be more than a terrific solution – it’s one of the very best built cases of this type that I have come across in a while and at only $15.95 it’s an absolute steal.
The Nite Ize Backbone case should really be considered more of a mini backpack to carry and protect your smartphone – it actually looks and is built very much like a top end model.
For starters the Backbone provides a fully enclosed design with water-resistant zippers (below right), sure grip pulls (above) as well as a super strong flex-clip that rotates 360 degrees. A robust loop at the top back can also be used with a snap hook for example to attach to a backpack.
The Backbone case also has a great looking molded back structure (above left) formed by heating the extremely robust ballistic nylon that provides the basics of the outer shell.
Additionally, the padded interior (above right) offers scratch protection and a small inner pocket provides storage space for cash, credit cards, memory cards or even a small set of keys.
Although it can’t be considered small the Nite Ize Backbone case is nonetheless extremely compact and comfortable by your side thanks to its super-strong flex-clip and the sure-grip pulls ensure that you can quickly and easily open the case to access your smartphone at any time.
Clearly this case is not for everybody but it’s one that I have very happily added to my own arsenal for those frequent occasions when I go hiking, biking or simply want a rugged case for the weekend – at this price it really was a no brainer.
Treonauts always use their brain…
