You wouldn’t tumble down the stairs, somersault along the street or bellyflop on the pavement in the nude, so why inflict the same indignity on your beloved iPhone? Give it something to wear – and we’re not talking about some flimsy sock-like sleeve. We’re talking about the amazingly tough, shock-absorbing iBand and iMesh.
Unlike a regular case this protective band fits around the edge of your iPhone to offer incredible impact protection. In fact it gives 100% more impact protection than a standard case. Hard? Think of it as the Ross Kemp, no, the Rambo of iPhone accessories.
New: The iMesh with back protection
So how come this rubbery band offers such incredible protection? We’re not entirely sure but boffins tell us it’s made from a revolutionary substance called d3o. This patented material contains molecules that instantly lock together on impact to absorb and dispel energy. Why planes and cars aren’t made of this stuff is anyone’s guess. Indeed it’s so tough it’s currently being developed for military use.
For those of you that care for a bit of rear protection then we also have the iMesh. Available for both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3G/3GS it has the same resilience as the iBand but with mesh covering the back, allowing you rear protection whilst still able to partly view the iconic Apple logo.

Cut outs for control and port access
Once your iPhone is sporting an iBand or iMesh you’ll still have full access to its controls and ports. And even though the screen and rear remain fully visible, the iBand is just thick enough to raise your iPhone off whatever surface you choose to plonk it on. Short of encasing your oh-so sleek gizmo in concrete, we can think of no better way to protect it from the rough and tumble of everyday use. So come on butter fingers, get ordering!
