Patchworks ITG Level Case ($18)

The ITG Level case from Patchworks has a classic dual-layer design with tough polycarbonate on the outside and shock absorbing TPU inside. It meets military drop test standard 810G, so you can rely on it to keep your iPhone 6 safe. It’s surprisingly slim for a protective case, the cut-outs are generous, and there’s a bezel round the front to protect that screen. The sides are also subtly textured to add grip, and the button covers are easy to use. You can pick it up in a choice of four colors: black, white, red, or sand.

Cover-Up Woodback Snap Case ($26)

It can be expensive to snag a wooden phone case sometimes, but Cover-Up offer a range that won’t break the bank. You’ve got a solid, polycarbonate case in black, with a wooden panel on the back. It will offer basic protection from scuffs and bumps – don’t expect amazing drop protection. You can choose from a wide range of different woods, from cedar, to mahogany, to maple (there are 12 in all). The cut-outs are accurate and it’s a thin case, so there’s nothing to interfere with your normal iPhone 6 usage. If you spend an extra $5, you can get a lightning bolt or treble clef on the back.

Speck MightyShell Case ($39)

Speck-MightyShell-Case

If you’re in the habit of fumbling and dropping your iPhone 6 a lot then drop protection should be on the top of your list when shopping for cases. The MightyShell from Speck actually exceeds military drop test standards. It has a multi-layer bumper and a radial pattern inside that absorbs shock and cushions the iPhone 6. There’s also a raised bezel to protect the screen. Usually rugged cases are really thick, but this one is relatively slim.

Speck is so confident about this case that it comes with a lifetime warranty.

There are adequate openings for your ports, though some third-party accessories with larger jacks might not fit. You also get a protective coating for the back of your iPhone, which you apply like a screen protector. The bumper definitely adds a bit of bulk, but it survived drop tests up to 15 feet, so it should certainly keep your iPhone safe.

Tech21 Evo Mesh Case ($15+)

Tech21-Evo-Mesh-Case

Omaker-Bumper-Case

This case is very flexible, so it’s easy to fit and it feels nice in hand. The corners are reinforced to bear the brunt of any impact and the front has raised edges to protect the screen.

Vesel Wood Series Bumper ($140)

Vesel-Wood-Series-Bumper

At first glance, you might recoil at the price tag on these luxury bumpers, but the quality is impressive. The metal series offers aluminum in different shades with different colors of plastic on the joints, but it’s the wood series that’s more likely to seduce you. The top and bottom comes in your choice of bright silver or darker gray aluminum, and you can combine that with oak or walnut sides. There are also perfectly sited aluminum button covers. The bumper is fitted by unscrewing the top piece and sliding the iPhone 6 into place. Strictly speaking, there’s no protection front and back, but the frame is larger than the iPhone all the way round, so the screen and the camera lens on the back won’t be touching if you put it down or drop it on a flat surface. These bumpers are really all about style, and they match the elegant design of the iPhone 6 beautifully.

Kenu Highline ($30)

Kenu-Highline-Security-Leash-and-Case

The case isn’t going to save your phone if it actually hits the floor, but that’s what the elastic leash is for. It clips onto the case and into the Lightning port, and it boasts a Kevlar core, which means it isn’t breaking. Attach the loop to something like a zip, and you can whip that iPhone out on the ski lift, or at the top of the Empire State Building without a worry.

Encase Flexishield Glitter Gel Case ($10)
