I just got word that the Catalyst rugged and waterproof case for the iPhone 6 will start shipping this weekend — iPhone 6 owners have had few waterproof options until recently. iPhone 6 Plus owners will have to wait a little longer: The Catalyst case for iPhone 6 Plus will ship in March. And who, exactly, is Catalyst Lifestyle anyway, the company behind the Catalyst waterproof case line? It’s a small company founded by a pair of adventurers, Josh Wright and June Lai, who delivered their first waterproof case in 2011 and has followed up with a variety of accessories.
The Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 6
Meanwhile, the Catalyst case is rated IP-68 against water and dust, plus it’s rated down to an amazing 16.4 feet. It meets the military 810G shock and drop-test standard.
Touch ID works, too.
One nice feature of Catalyst cases is an attachment point for a wrist lanyard or floating lanyard — no one wants to watch a waterproofed iPhone sink to the bottom of a river or lake.
List price direct from Catalyst is $69.99.
Previous versions from Catalyst Lifestyle have gotten generally good reviews — look for an initial review from Wicked Cool Bite soon.
