The i1015 Case measures 5.14" x 2.64" x 1.37" and it has an easy open latch and a rubber liner that doubles as an o-ring seal. The case also has a carabiner hook and an earphone port built-in. The case is available right now.
The i1015 Case is a very large case that is more a protective over layer than a case like you probably think of for your iPhone or other smartphone or device. The case isn’t meant for use when swimming or for submerging, but it is impact resistant and will survive splashes and spills.
I tested the i1015 Case with my iPhone 4 in the iChair hard case that I reviewed not long ago. Even with the iChair case on my iPhone it still fit inside the i1015 Case from Pelican without any issues at all. Under where the iPhone would sit inside the case is a raised area where you can wrap your cords and headphones if you want. It has a headphone 3.5mm cord inside that you can plug into the headphone port of your deice.
On the right side of the case is an elbow that rotates with a headphone port on it to allow you to hear music without having to remove the phone from the case. The big downside here is that the case is not made to allow you to control your iPhone or any other device without removing it from the i1015 Case.
The good news is that if you have a set of headphones that have an inline mic or control for tracks and answering calls on your device the adapter for headphones will shoot those signals right over to the iPhone. Using my headphones, I could change tracks, pause and play just as I can with the device out of the case. The case can be had with a clear lid, which is the version I have, or with a solid lid. The clear version makes more sense for most of us so we can see who is calling and view the album artwork that is on the screen. The little case is inexpensive too at about $20.
The i1015 Case from Pelican is a cool case if you need extra protection for your device while outside. Controls are inaccessible, but headphones with inline remotes will still function.
