“Not afraid to get your hands dirty? Neither is Tough Jacket”

That’s how Ballistic  describes their Tough Jacket line, and they’re absolutely correct! Let’s explore why this case is built to take the most brutal of beatings, while protecting your invaluable smart phone.

Note: Ballistic used to have this case line under the name Shell Gel. Same great case, new name.


Let’s start with the obvious: with a name like Tough Jacket, you’re going to expect this case to be able to take a drop, hit and a bang. The Tough Jacket can stand-up against all of the other protective cases in its class. But what sets the Tough Jacket apart from others is HOW it protects your phone.

The Tough Jacket has reinforced Ballistic Corners that provide protection against cracked screens resulting from corner drops. When a phone is dropped, it will land on a corner 83% of the time. By reinforcing the corners (Ballistic Corners), Ballistic ensures that your phone and screen will be protected.

The Tough Jacket uses two layers of protection. First a soft resilient silicone is wrapped around your phone. All buttons, ports and microphone holes will match up perfectly with the silicone to remain fully accessible and will have a satisfying feedback when used. The second layer is a hard (but soft feeling) polycarbonate shell that covers the silicone layer. It’s very unique in its feel.

All Tough Jackets are rated for 6 foot drops and come with a lifetime warranty. More on the warranty below.


The Tough Jacket is in designed in direct relation to its protection. In fact, I could have combined both of these sections, since they complement each other so well.

Ballistic has designed the Tough Jacket to be “pocketable.” Meaning, it’s easy to take in and out of your pocket. All of the corners and edges are curved so that while in this case, your phone will easily slide in and out of your pocket.

The polycarbonate layer has an indented studded design that helps with grip adds a unique look. This same layer is also brushed and not polished like some other cases (Ie: it’s not a finger print magnet).

The sides of the case are also raised, so when the case is put on a flat surface face down, the screen won’t be damaged. As stated before, Ballistic has combined design and protection with this feature.

The gentle curves and corners of the Tough Jacket add to the overall design, and really help the Tough Jacket to stand out from the crowd. It’s not just another boring rectangular case.


The Tough Jacket is available in black/black and black/white combinations from Cesium.

Price Point:

MSRP price point of the Tough Jacket ranges from $34.99 to $69.99, putting it $5 to $10 less than most of its competitors on the market. This is very enticing to customers that are looking for durable protection, without breaking the bank.
