TAKTIK iPhone 5 Heavy Duty Rugged Case

Posted on Sep 11 2012 - 6:14pm by Spartacus

Update: Lunatik TAKTIK is now available! Sometimes you need to call in the heavy guns to get a job done. In some situations, only a tank will suffice. For these kinds of times, you will have a hard time finding something more rugged, durably, and heavy duty than the TAKTIK iPhone 5 Armor Case.

Originally a Kiskstarter project that was funded close to 500x more than it’s original goal, the TAKTIK premium protection system for the iPhone promises uncompromising rugged protection like you’ve never seen. Durable and rugged iPhone cases are very popular, the problem is quite often they are ugly as all get out. LUNATIK has worked hard to design something that is both gorgeous and rugged  with their TAKTIK case.

The front cover is protected by gorilla glass, suspended in a shockproof suspension system and wrapped in an anodized aluminum case. Every port is protected, every part is shiny. Massive levels of attention have been lavished on each and every detail like fit, finish, aesthetic look, and strength.

Slap a TAKTIK case onto your iPhone 5 and never have to worry again about… well anything! Heck, this case is even waterproof! This case will exceed your expectations in every way, and balances strong looks with high end performance.

Plus, they are making a high end bike mount system as well that will let you strap your iPhone onto your bike and take on even the hardest trails with confidence. As avid mountain bikers, we greatly appreciate this feature! It will be available in a multitude of colors and is on sale for the iPhone 4S right now for $124.95, with the iPhone 5 version coming soon!

    How much does it weigh, and just how waterproof is it? Please email me and let me know! I am trying to decide if I want to buy this or the lifeproof case.

    Whene will the iPhone 5 case be released and what will the price be? Will Gorilla Glass still be an option on the iPhone 5 case? And finally, will there be a belt clip? Thanks.

      These are all very good questions. Questions for which we do not have answers. Yet. :) We are in touch with LUNATIK and are finding out. We will report back when we get more info! Stay tuned!

    Just to clear some things up: I was a minimal donator on this kickstarter project and asked them some of the questions you have.

    Yes, there’s a belt clip. It integrates with the bike mount, I believe.

    It is NOT waterproof. It is water resistant. The screens they use over the speakers and mics are more permeable than the lifeproof case. If you want to take your phone snorkeling, get lifeproof. If you want better sound quality while still being protected against dropping it in a puddle or splashing it, get Taktik.

    The Taktik is not released yet. They haven’t shipped them for the iPhone 4S, let alone started serious work on the 5. They had it as an options during the kickstarter campaign, but couldn’t start developing it until the iPhone 5 release. Release dates are yet to be announced the last I saw.

    Hopefully that helps you all until more official info is released on them.

    I’m not affiliated in any way the company.

    My issue is the same as someone else here: does this have a holster or belt clip? A case does me no good if I have no way of carrying it.

    Has there been any problems with the case as far as interfering with the iPhones signal? I know some cases block the signals so I’m just hoping this isn’t what happens cause I can’t wait to get this case for ip5. Thank you

      They say that it is designed within Apple’s design specifications so it will not affect the signal in any way at all. We will post our full review of it once we get a review unit. However, we don’t know when that will be yet. Soon we hope!

    I understand the extended process to get this case right But apple may come out with Iphone 6 before the Iphone5 version is out. It is taking way too long. Hopefully you will cover all potential issues that may come up. And definitely deal with whatever charging station issue, belt/holster option ??, and any potential reception issue/.
    While waiting for this case to come out I purchased a HardCandy case. These guys thought they could followup on last year and beat all Iphone5 case retailer by releasing case for IPhone5 early. BaD Choice !!!! The protection screen did not have all necessary cutouts to accommodate reception. Interfered with phone service. They never followed up with me on this issue.

    I got this case off of EBAY, my concern is that it people are saying the aluminum can disrupt the service on the Iphone 5…. Is this true and they are also saying it could be a fake???
