The HitCase for iPhone 4/4S boasts of being shockproof and waterproof, but it's not the kind of thing you want to use for your phone from day to day. That is, unless you are an Antarctic explorer.
The black plastic of the HitCase adds considerable bulk to an iPhone 4/4S and somewhat hampers usability. Its angular protuberances make it look lie something that should be hanging from Batman's utility belt.
Industrial metal studs stick out of the sides, letting you push the volume and power buttons.
The HitCase is designed to turn an iPhone into an action camera, making it suitable to stick on your car's fender and record hot laps or strap to your chest and ski black diamond slopes.
To really put the HitCase through its paces, I knew I would have to stick it to a car and drive really fast.
