LifeProof nüüd and GoPro Mount – Interbike 2012

by Brian Mullin on October 9, 2012

LifeProof
makes protective cases for Apple smartphones and tablets, and their
products are well made, rugged and take the abuse of the outdoor world.  

LifeProof nüüd
LifeProof introduced
their new nüüd case for iPad, an ultimate rugged and weather resistance
product. The case is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and snowproof,
with fully functional buttons and control access. An interesting feature
is that the screen is naked (à la in the buff), and doesn’t have a
protective cover, so you get the true tactile response and visual
clarity from the screen. Because of the seal design, you can’t use a
screen protector, otherwise the waterproof integrity will be
compromised. If you want screen protection, they offer the Invisible
Shield by ZAAG, which fits within the inner recess of the case.  

There
is a speaker port on the back of the case that extracts a great deal of
sound (music, movies, etc.) using the LifeProof Sound Enhancement
System. In addition, the nüüd channels sound through the case cavity,
which reinforces things to provide a richer and fuller sound.

LifeProof
offers some useful accessories for the case, including the Cover +
Stand, which protects the iPad when it’s not in use and doubles as a
stand. They offer the LifeJacket, which is sort of a wraparound life
preserver to protect the case when around water. It offers buoyancy and
extra defense against drops and scratches.

The
LifeProof iPad nüüd case is currently offered exclusively at all Best
Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores nationwide. It is also available online
at LifeProof.com as well as BestBuy.com. LifeProof nüüd iPad case is
available for $149.99, the Cover + Stand for LifeProof nüüd iPad case
for $29.99, and the LifeProof LifeJact is $59.99. A case and cover combo
is also available for $159.99.

LifeProof Adapter Compatible with GoPro Mounts
LifeProof tweaked their iPhone mount and added an adapter so that you
can attach it to the GoPro mounting system. The LifeProof mount has the
default prongs that interfaces to the GoPro system, and you can attach
it to the Chesty (as shown), helmet mounts, or anywhere desired that has
the appropriate connectors. The mount retails for $29.99.
The
mount only accepts the excellent LifeProof  iPhone case, which retails
for $79.99.  I have been using their iPhone case for a long period of
time now, and the waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof case can take
some incredible abuse, while still offering full access to the buttons,
touchscreen, camera and phone.

  • Lightweight honeycomb construction with premium high-impact materials for optimal strength to weight ratio.
  • Accepts LifeProof iPhone 4 + iPhone 4S case.
  • Accepts phone facing in and out.
  • One-handed release latch for fast insertion and removal of LifeProof case.
