About Ballistic

The Ballistic® brand was realized 7 years ago when the owner was getting out of his car and his phone fell, cracking the screen.  He believed there had to be a way to offer consumers a high level of protection in a case that still looked good. 

The Ballistic engineers designed private label holsters and belt clips that simply would not break. During this time, the company made millions of OEM branded holsters and belt clips.

As smart phones became more popular, the need for drop protection became necessary.  Ballistic engineers examined their competitor’s products and knew they could do better. The result is now a line of a variety of Ballistic cases. These cases provide the most advanced degree of drop protection currently in the market.

We think everyone will drop their phone.  We say, “Just Drop It!”–as long as you are using a Ballistic case.  Ballistic cases are Designed to Survive Life!™
