Review: Thule Atmos X3 iPhone Case

For many of us, our phones are a lifeline. They're a link to friends, family and work; as well as being a vital emergency contact system. It pays to look after them, and a good quality case will help to avoid damage caused by the knocks, bumps and scrapes that occur with everyday riding and use.

Thule is a brand renowned for its quality products. Roof racks and bike carriers is where it all started, but recently they've come out with a superb luggage range (I reviewed the Thule Enroute Escort Rucksack earlier this year [Link]) and accessories range.

The Thule Atmos X3 iPhone case is designed to be a sleek minimalist case; to protect your phone from drops and scratches, whilst actually enhancing the feel of the unit in your hand.

It works. The sky blue colour Atmos X3 I have really does have a reassuring quality feel about it, and looks unique and different from most other phone cases on the market.

The case itself is made of a dual compound "armour", which has provided effective protection in several phone drops to date. The Shock-Stop corners give great protection, yet add minimal bulk. The raised bezel on the front of the case does a great job of keeping the screen away from surfaces when you place it face-down. The volume buttons have a great positive feel to them, and all the ports remain highly accessible. Quite simply, the case is very good at doing what it is designed to do: keeping your phone safe, yet still very user friendly.

There are plenty of other protective cases on the market though; what I really like about the Thule case is that it feels great in your hand. Apple spent a lot of time creating a minimalist phone, so it seems right that a protective case should be as minimalist as it can be too; the Thule case seems to provide this low-bulk solution, which feels great in your palm. The grippy rubber sides to the case also mean it feels secure to hold, and you feel confident using the phone even on the move.

For a cyclist, or indeed any outdoor enthusiast, this is a great solution to phone safety.
