Tech21 Introduces Patriot -- Most Advanced Device Protection on the Market

Rugged Case Range Launches for Apple and Samsung Devices

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - Tech21 (, the leader in impact protection for smartphones, tablets and laptops, today introduces the most technically advanced device protection with the new Patriot line. Designed in partnership with those who brave the elements every day, the rugged Patriot line offers twice the protection of the leading case, is dust-proof, splash-proof and can withstand drops up to 13 feet. The 360-degree case features maximum coverage and absorbs 96 percent of impact force when dropped, thanks to the scientifically proven impact-absorbing polymer FlexShock™ and a screen protector made from BulletShield™, a BASF polymer used in bullet-proof glass.

Additional Patriot features include:

  • Fast and easy two-part installation
  • Exceptional audio quality due to ePTFE venting
  • Unlimited access to device features, including unobstructed screen sensitivity
  • Holster included

To further prove the Patriot's strength, Tech21 developed the "Trade, Tried and Trusted" program in partnership with local tradespeople whose daily jobs put their devices at a higher risk of damage. Tech21 worked with shipyard workers and tree surgeons to use and approve the Patriot's ability to meet on-the-job demands, like battling outdoor elements, operating heavy machinery and climbing tall structures. Like all Tech21's products, the Patriot has been tested against the company's Impactology™ promise to always provide the most intelligent impact protection.

"The Patriot is outfitted with FlexShock™, a scientifically proven material that offers unbeatable durability and protection," said Jason Roberts, CEO of Tech21. "It excels against the competition on every level of testing, giving consumers -- from outdoor enthusiasts to construction workers -- the confidence to go even more places with their mobile devices."

A range of Patriot cases are now available in Best Buy stores and at for the iPhone 5/5S and Samsung Galaxy S5. Cases for the iPad Air and iPad mini are also available on Tech21's website. The phone cases are MSRP $59.99, while the cases for the iPad mini and iPad Air are MSRP $79.99 and $99.99, respectively. The Patriot for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will be available in early 2015 for MSRP $59.99 and $69.99. See the Patriot in action here.
