Is the Amphibx Fit tough enough for Jack Bauer?

In his career as an elite counter-terrorist operative, 24’s Jack Bauer has faced some tough times. But whether it’s holding guns to people’s heads or stopping major terrorist attacks, he always  makes sure he’s kitted out for the rough and tumble that comes his way.

But as well as protecting himself and his country, he also needs to protect his tech. And out of all the sophisticated kit he carries, the most prized is his smartphone. A seemingly magical device with infinite battery life, it’s been with Jack through thick and thin and helped get him out of some prize scrapes.

So here are 3 smartphone cases durable enough even for our Jack’s exacting standards.
