Looking for a new iPhone 6 case that will stand up to cold weather? These iPhone 6 cases will help your new phone make it through the coldest months of the year. Our list includes rugged waterproof/snowproof cases, as well as winter-friendly cases that have unique design elements that make them ideal for the cold months ahead. This winter, having the right iPhone 6 case can really help you handle a snowstorm. Read on to see which five cases we’ve highlighted as the best iPhone 6 cases for Winter 2014.
1. LifeProof Fre iPhone 6 Case
LifeProof is widely considered to be one of the best iPhone case brands out there. After releasing the cases in limited quantities to newsletter subscribers earlier this month, LifeProof has now made their Fre iPhone 6 case for sale online. You should note that the Fre case is only available in black, at least for now.
While these new cases are pretty expensive, fans of these waterproof, snowproof, dirtproof, and shockproof cases refuse to settle for less. Do note, however, that some users are saying that their third-party charging cables won’t play nice with this case. It’s not a surprising development, but it is something to be aware of before you pull the trigger. You’ll also want to make sure that you hang on to that headphone adapter that comes with the case.
Available for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, this furry case comes in your choice of two colors. If you want a fuzzy, cuddly case that just feels nice in your cold hands, this is it. It may not be rugged, but it is very wintry-looking, and really unique. While it may not be a case that’s vegan-friendly, it is totally luxe and glamorous beyond belief.
When heavy snow brings down the power lines and leaves you without electricity, you’ll want some kind of external charger to keep your iPhone all juiced up. This sweet battery accessory for the iPhone 6 isn’t exactly a case, but it does give your iPhone 6 a little extra protection. The PowerSkin PoP’n 2 doesn’t wrap around the whole phone, or even the whole back of the phone, but it does cover part of the back of the iPhone 6.

If you’re looking for a rugged case, the Griffin Survivor is one of your best options. It’s designed to withstand windblown dirt, sand, and rain, as well as shock and vibration. That being said, this water-resistant iPhone case isn’t designed to be totally submerged in water. It’s not quite snowproof like the LifeProof Fre case, but this rugged case costs less, and is still rugged enough to give you peace of mind…particularly if you’re not the type of person who takes your phone with you when you’re snowplowing the driveway.

Speck has been making the CandyShell Grip cases for many generations of iPhones now, and iPhone fans keep getting the same case from Speck, year after year. It comes in a huge array of colors. The grippy lines on the case make it easy to hold onto when your hands are a bit sweaty from hitting the gym. Finally, despite its low price, this phone has been military-grade drop tested.
The grippy lines on the outside of this case also make it easier to grip when you’re wearing gloves, making this an ideal case for an iPhone 6 owner who wants something slim and cute to put on their phone this winter. After all, not everyone wants a bulky, rugged phone case.
