So I had a very close crapping myself moment. I was talking to my brother today and I was trying to cross the street while talking to him. Well my iPhone 6+ was in my chest pocket of my coat as I was using headphones, well I didn't realize the pocket wasn't zipped. I started running across the street in a full sprint and in the middle of the run my phone decided to rocket out of my pocket what felt like 200 mph and hit the pavement like a meteor and slid across the pavement. For me if felt as if time paused as I reached down pick it up i was expecting a terrible sight and I'm happy to announce my Magpul case not only saved my phone but left only minor marks on the case NOTHING ON THE PHONE, i really never expected it to protect my phone this well from a disastrous fall. If I could show you how hard it hit the ground I would but first, thank you Magpul for making an amazing case.

But I'm pretty sure in the middle of the phone flying.... I sh** myself lol first time I've dropped any of my iPhone's this hard, ever, it is definitely a learning experience. SO if you haven't already go buy the Magpul case for your iphone :)

Hahaha I'm just about to invest in depends I've been using Magpul since my iPhone 4s so I know they are awesome not just for cases but for their attachments for my AR this was a wow experience I've never seen a phone just go flying like a fighter jet

Great to hear. I just switched from an Otterbox Defender to the Magpul. And have been mildly nervous about it taking a fall ever since.

OP's true story is the kind of unintentional airborne iPhone velocity that I try to convey to the naked iPhone carry enthusiasts.

How do you read this ?

How do you have the time to respond with such a vague comment? Generally in Latin-based languages we read from left to right, top to bottom, however I have heard of people using translation apps and then reading it in their own languages.... but I'm guessing you were trying to put down the OP for commenting on personal experience in the forum designed for sharing ideas?

I'm at a loss for words..... I want to say thank for making me laugh and bringing back my faith in this forum. Because your last sentence pretty much defines how everyone should think about this forum. a place to share ideas or experiences with idea in mind it's about something related to the name of this community MACRumors.

Hey! I was doing some Googling about Magpul and UAG cases and saw that you're from Spokane, WA and had to give a shout out! I've lived in Spokane my whole life, just thought it was cool to see someone from my neck of the woods on a site I visit often.
