Travelling with so much tech can be a liability, but there’s really not much of a choice if you’re a photographer, blogger, or just someone who wants to be able to whatsapp your family if you happen to stumble upon some wifi. But there’s just so many things can go wrong! Take for example, the collective gasp of a whole cafe when you drop your iPhone on the floor and the screen shatters…. NOT the best way to start out your trip. That’s exactly what happened to me when we were in Hoi An a little while ago, and nothing is more of a universal language than the ‘oh sh****t’ that you hear from those around you post screen smash.
Yes, someone as clumsy as me should probably have a giant protector case on it the size of a pillow, but let’s just say they get in the way of adventure and travel, let alone the fact that they don’t fit in your cross body bag. Which is why, I’m pretty happy to get my hands on the new Native Union (those of the amazing real marble iPhone case fame) Clic 360° case. With internal (ahem, military grade) 3D rubber mesh and shock absorbing screen bumper, it acts like a giant rugged phone case, but in true Native Union style looks pretty good. After all, you want your tech to be as adventurous, and well presented, as you are.
In case you’re wondering, protecting your tech doesn’t stop when you get home (that’s if you ever left at all), if you’re like me and love to be a tourist in your own city or town. As you can see from the pics, a day out on the Star Ferry is like discovering Hong Kong all over again, with a zillion opportunities for a screen smash. And while the Native Union case can’t stop you from dropping your phone overboard, it will protect you from pretty much everything else!
