Dog & Bone Wetsuit
Product + Engineering + Production
While life is often tough, messy and active, unfortunately our electronic devices don’t always meet those requirements. So when Dog & Bone came to D+I with the hope of protecting our phones from the harsh conditions we subject them to, we needed to tackle the ultimate electronics killer — water.
The solution is Dog & Bone's Wetsuit iPhone case, a waterproof, shockproof, dirt-proof and snow-proof enclosure that is as slim and stylish as it is rugged.
The first case of its kind to go topless (without a protective film covering the screen), Wetsuit offers unparalleled touch-screen sensitivity while avoiding the rippling and bubbling often associated with protective film coverings. When designing Wetsuit, we wanted the case to be tough and durable, yet accessible and soft to the touch. By utilising a premium, soft, non-slip rubber-touch exterior the case feels superb in the hand, while allowing better grip in and around water.
In setting out to design the most robust waterproof phone case on the market, D+I engineered Wetsuit to the highest possible standards in both shock and waterproofing. Wetsuit has an IP 68 rating, the highest level of ingress protection against water and dust, as well as MIL STD 810F, which exceeds Military standards in drop tests of 2 metres.
