It's a mean world out there!
Although Apple has made strides in making iPhone 5 a durable gadget, the world out there is mean and rough. Due to the delicacy of design and the inherent nature of materials like Aluminum, your beauty is in for a tough time. This is especially true if you are into adventure sports like cycling or are a frequent bike rider. The fear of drops, weather conditions, dust, moisture etc is always there and the phone needs to be protected from these. Agreed, Apple does a marvelous job when it comes to providing customer services, but it's always preferable to not having to resort to that in the first place.

There are many cases and covers available in the market to cope up with these situations, however, to find the right one for your needs is a tough job to do. Fortunately, there are some well established players who offer decent quality solutions for these types of customers. 2 major varieties of cases exists in market for carrying iPhone securely while biking or traveling over 2 wheelers in general which cater to the needs of different audience.

This arrangement basically seals the phone completely and is very useful for extreme weather conditions. The upper lid is made of transparent material which lets you view your iPhone.

So, which one is for you?
Well, the cases are designed for different needs really and personally, I would keep both of them with me to have that feeling of safety in my heart. The first type of case is geared towards protection, especially during rainy days and less on functionality on the go. The second type of case is more useful when you want to use the phone while riding, making use of GPS perhaps, or listening to some music. It’s a must to have a case for both situations, keeping your phone safe all the time. Agreed, it costs money but so did your iPhone 5 and the priceless data on it.
So don't take chances, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Keep the cases with you and extend the life of companionship with your iPhone 5 to many more years.
