Tru Protection, smartphone accessory maker, has a brand new line of iPhone cases called the “Heather Brown Collection.” The case company describes Heather Brown’s inspiration for the case designs as being “her love of the sea, surf and the beauty of the island (Hawaii). We are lucky enough to have gotten one of the Ku’uipos Air Jackets to take for a test drive on our iPhone4S. Well take a look at the functionality and design this case offers.
Functionality: The heather Brown Air Jacket collection cases are extremely similar to the design of the PowerSupport Air Jackets we reviewed last month. First off, one big difference here is that the Tru Protection case has a larger cutout for the volume / mute buttons, which allows it to fit the iPhone4S and Verizon iPhone4. The case fits super tight to your iPhone and does not move when you squeeze it like some lower quality cases might. I love how Tru Protection left ample room for the cutouts at the top and bottom of the case, all dock connector and audio jack accessories should fit without any issue. This case maintains the beauty of the iPhone while offering ample everyday protection. The side railings of the case protrude above the screen just enough to offer “off the table” protection. This means if you lay the phone screen down on a surface it will not lay on the screen but instead on the railings of the case. Sometimes tight fitting cases are tough to get on and off but this Tru Protection case fits perfectly and I had no problem with this.
Design: if you are looking for a unique case to make your iPhone stand out from the crowd, look no further. You can really feel Heather Brown’s love for the island while using these cases. You really will not find another case like this. The surfer guy/gal and birds sitting in a branch design looks almost hand painted on the back. The colors are super vibrant and really bring the case design to life. While this case is perfect for anyone trying to bring a bit of sunshine and beach to their everyday life, I really see beach bums and surfers falling in love with the designs. Not only are these cases beautiful, but you can feel good when you buy one because 15% of the purchase will benefit the Surfrider Foundation or the Kokua Hawaii Foundation. I absolutely love this case and will be rocking it on my iPhone4S for the foreseeable future. Check below for info on how to check out this case and others from Tru Protection.
