Best Smartphone Cases for Camping

Smartphones and tablets have a lot of great features, but durability isn’t one of them. A broken smartphone can ruin a road trip.  Since camping isn’t exactly the most delicate activity, here are some smartphone cases that will protect your device.

Otterbox Defender Series

On the off chance your phone drops, the triple layer protection of the Otterbox Defender will cushion the landing. This particular model has a built in screen protector and plugs to guard against dirt and scratches. Just don’t drop your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy in water, this case isn’t water proof. Otterbox makes their Defender Series for the iPhone 5/6 and Samsung Galaxy S5. Did I also mention that this case comes with a one year warranty?


If you’re scared of  dropping your phone in water or snow you should get a LifeProof case. A LifeProof case will keep your phone dry in up to six feet of water. This hard shell case blocks dirt and protects your phone from a six foot drop. The sleek design of the LifeProof case doesn’t add a lot extra bulk to the phone so it still fits in your pocket. LifeProof makes cases for the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, iPhone 6, 6 plus, iPhone 5 and iPad.


The Gumdrop Drop Tech Series Case is great for the Google Nexus 7. It is a thick case with extra padding in the corners for shock absorption. The built in plugs and screen protector keep dirt from clogging or scratching your Google Nexus 7.

It’s always best to air on the side of caution, even if you put away your phone to spend some quality time with your Little guy.  A durable case will keep your smartphone intact for emergencies or your return to society.
