Iphone 6plus case?

Thought I remember a thread on this way back but couldn't find it. Looking for recommendations on a rugged waterproof case for 6 plus S. I am using a Lifeproof on my old 6 now, but it hasn't held up too well, seals etc... Thanks!

IDK if it's water PROOF, I wouldn't want to try, but I am an Otterbox Defender user. This is my third phone with one. Have dropped it innumerable times on the gritty streets of DC and no problems.

I agree with the Otter defender. I have dropped my phone in puddles, been caught in downpours (while phone is in pocket), fell in river while fishing while phone is in waders with no issues. Plus once it wears and gets scratches on screen they will replace it no charge.

I have been using them for 8 or so years.

I use this one. Absolutely bulletproof but heavy:

R-JUST

Find it on eBay for less than $20

LifeProof Hands down.... They can go through hell and back, and they are not as bulky as other cases and their screens are quite responsive and native feeling.

I had an armor series for my 5s that was great. Waterproof and crush proof. It looks like though once otter box bought life proof they stopped selling the armor series. Right now I've got the life proof case with the built in spare battery and like it. Not sure if the have it in plus size though.

Had a lifeproof for my 4s and loved it purchased one for my 6 plus and it did not hold up it seems like the quality has gone down.

I think it lasted ~ 4 months and was falling apart will not buy another one

I am really easy on my phone the cheap incipio case has held up fine for the last 6 months.

I just replaced a life proof case. Go to the website lifeproof.com and film out the claim. They sent it right away. Took less than 5 minutes.

Take it back to them, I just got a brand new phone because my battery life had decreased significantly. You get something like 3 free replacements and they're brand new phones, just packaged without the charger and headphones.

Not waterproof, but I like the Magpul field case combined with a tempered glass screen protector.

Same here, for day to day use-& a lot of traveling, the Magpul case has been superb. More than that, my teenager's iPhone also has one and she hasn't managed to break it...yet.
