From mountain biking, to rock climbing, Patriot, included with holster, has got you covered from the inevitable bumps and knocks of life.

Fast and Easy 2-Part Assembly

With an easy 2-part assembly, followed by a clip-on screen protector cassette, Patriot is incredibly user-friendly.  Mechanical buttons allow for a tactical user experience with a removable holster for secure impact protection.  This clip for the iPhone 6 / 6S version shows how easy it is to slot your precious device into it’s protective slumber.

Trade, Tried and Trusted

Our Trade, Tried and Trusted program has been developed in partnership with local tradesmen whose daily work commitments have evolved to require the need for phones and tablets as part of their service.

Due to the growing demands that these trades face, which include exposure to the elements, heights, heavy machinery and active lifestyles, their mobile devices are put at a higher risk of damage. To combat these hazards, Tech21 has developed the Patriot case which features 13FT/4M drop protection and is splash and dust proof with 360° case and screen protection.

The device itself, whilst bulky, is very well made and pleasing the eye

All functions remain accessible thanks to port covers

and strategically placed buttons







As you’d expect, rear and front facing camera control

Home button







Charging port and headphone socket







The holster and clip is one of those things you’ll love or hate.  Personally for me I’m not a fan, however I can recognise the convenience of such a feature and for the price it’s great to have choice.

The you phone snugly contained within TECH21’s Patriot shell, I find the holster superfluous for my needs.

There are probably more options, variations and choices for Smartphone cases than there are for any other handheld device; as you’d expect these days!  With prices ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, spending around 10% of your replacement cost doesn’t seem unreasonable, does it?







The Patriot case from TECH21 comes in a hugely cost effective £39.99 from their own online store which is pretty good value in my book!







When you take into account all of its features and protection capabilities, that’s very little money for some good peace of mind.  Whilst you’re not going to get away with submerging it in open water, it’ll cope admirable with most situations.
