Urban Armor Gear iPhone 6 Plus Cases

The Scout and Maverick Urban Armor Gear iPhone 6 Plus Cases are a great value that meet the military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6). Each case also comes with an HD Screen protector and a cleaning cloth. The buttons are textured, making them very simple to manipulate in low visibility conditions. The silence switch is easy to access, as are the power and audio ports. From the front, the Maverick and Scout cases look identical. However, the Maverick is a clear-backed case while the Scout is solid black.

The Maverick weighs in at a svelte 41 grams and the Scout comes in at 46 grams.

Bottom Line:

The extra cost of the UAG cases gets you an HD Screen protector, a cleaning cloth and the MIL STD 810G 516.6 drop test standard. Coupled with easy button and port use, the Scout and Maverick are great options to protect your iPhone. After many weeks of use, the case has some very light superficial scratches.

Using the Seattle Backpackers Magazine Smart Phone Case rating matrix, I put this phone squarely in the Level 3 category.

  • Level 1 Protection: A naked iPhone or similar smart device, with only a screen protector in place.
  • Level 2 Protection: A light weight case with rubber bumpers and a raised lip to protect the screen when set on flat objects.
  • Level 3 Protection: A mid-weight case offering moderate protection from most drops and daily wear.
  • Level 4 Protection: A heavy duty case for extreme protection from drops and crushing forces.
  • Level 5 Protection: The highest level of protection; cases at this protection level will protect your phone from all the elements including water.
