A lot of people think that in order to get a case that offers top-notch protection for your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, it needs to be a big, bulky, ruggedized case like the ones made by Otterbox. Those cases are great if you mind all the extra bulk they add, and if you don’t mind the fact that they complete obscure the beautiful design of Apple’s iPhones. As it turns out, there’s another way. Decades of research have resulted in some huge advancements in body armor technology, and in the development of ultra-thin materials used to make body armor that is stronger than ever.

Now, one of those materials — a synthetic nylon called aramid — has been used to make some of the thinnest and strongest iPhone 7 cases in the world. Definitely check out the PITAKA Aramid Fiber iPhone 7 Case and the PITAKA Aramid Fiber iPhone 7 Plus Case, which are both available on Amazon in a wide range of colors.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Slim and Sensuous With “Body Armor Grade” Protection and ZERO Compromise, made possible with Aramid Fiber. Now, your phone is protected with the same material used in body armor, spacecraft, jet engines, and Formula 1 Race cars. Yet, your it retains the thinness of your iPhone the day you purchased it — before it was covered up with a thick bulky case.
  • Enjoy your “almost naked’ iPhone with a case that is thinner than a dime. Thickness 0.03 inch. Min. Weight 0.36 oz. So light that you even will not feel the weight increase to your phone. Yet, with unparalleled protection from everyday “real world” drops.
