Many case makers have said their cases are military grade, but Ballistic has lined up a partnership to put that to the test. Ballistic has teamed with Tacprogear aka TPG, a provider of tactical accessories. The pair will market a new quad-layer Hard Core Tactical Case line aimed at defense and law enforcement customers. The cases will be designed for extreme protection against dust, dirt, debris, and water, plus a full 12 feet of drop protection onto concrete. The case will be paired with a holster made of stainless steel and aircraft aluminum.
Pricing and availability of the Hard Core Tactical cases are not yet known.
