We all know that iPhones can face a lot of wear and tear, so the cases that protect them have to be sturdy. Readers said that the sturdiest this year was LifeProof, the winner of the best iPhone 4S case category.
In addition to the rugged exterior protection you'd expect from any case, LifeProof is waterproof up to 6 feet, adds additional protection from cold, and is tested against military specs. It locks out dust using plugs to cover the headphone jack and dock connector. And unlike many cases that don't protect the iPhone's screen, it includes a glass overlay for even greater security.
