Belkin Air Protect Grip Extreme - 2014
As if that name didn't cover enough bases already, it was also inexplicably known as the Belkin Outrigger for iPhone as I was never able to convince them to name it after its inspiration, the Sim-Bionic Titan.
Co-molded smartphone case with a shock-absorbing translucent TPU skin and glass-fiber reinforced nylon skeleton to resist the iPhone 5’s tendency to bend under stress. Much development and vendor cooperation was needed to achieve the double-shot molding and high-quality surfaces. Full protection with a svelte profile and opportunities for color personalization. Eventually expanded to Samsung phones but we never quite got the metal skeleton to work. Still available if you're rocking an iPhone 5!
