Glad ya asked! Let us get you up to speed on what exactly military-grade protection really entails.
Speck has tested a number of its cases and determined that the identified cases meet or exceed certain standards often used by the military to determine effectiveness of protection. Cases that are labeled to provide “military-grade protection” have been tested against the MIL-STD-810G military standard for drop-tested protection, meaning they have gone through multiple drops from varying heights, and the phone has retained full functionality each time. To be clear, this does not mean that your devices will never break; if you drop them hard enough, or from high enough, or at just the wrong angle, your device may still be damaged.
Per our Limited Warranty, Speck has no liability for any damage or destruction to consumer electronic devices or other personal property that are in the products, including, without limitation, laptops, cell phones, MP3 players, DVD players or handheld devices, or any loss of data contained in the foregoing devices.
