Uncompromising Rugged Cases and Bike Mount from LUNATIK for the iPhone 4/4s and iPhone 5.
Using protection isn't always pretty. That's why we've decided to inject our LUNATIK design DNA into protective cases. This is the DNA that fathered the TikTok+LunaTik and the LUNATIK Touch Pen. By obsessing over all the details that others neglect like fit, finish, details, feel, display integrity, robustness and aesthetics, we are raising the bar again. From the high sensitivity display protection of our Gorilla Glass Lens to our patent pending shockproof suspension system, we have gone above and beyond to transform the iPhone into a refined and rugged everyday warrior. We want people to be excited about using protection.
If you are tired of the same old box with sloppy features, we've got you covered with the TAKTIK iPhone Case by LUNATIK.

TAKTIK: Transformational Design
The devil is in the details and the details make the product. The extra effort and cost to make a product great is worth it. It is good business—great for the user and good for the planet. Great products last longer and are the first step in being responsible. And ours just might make your iPhone last longer as well.
With TAKTIK we have focused on making a case that exceeds user expectations in the rugged case market and one that balances strong iconic aesthetics with innovative performance features. There is no reason you have to settle for one or the other. With TAKTIK you get both: a case that takes a beating and can turns heads at the same time.
TAKTIK transforms your iPhone through bold design, precision engineering and the best performance materials available.
Shockproof Suspension System
TAKTIK's shockproof suspension features a patent-pending 9mm Impact Truss silicone perimeter compressed between two durable Ballistik polymer bezels or anodized aluminum bezels. The front bezel includes an adhered compression seal liner to protect from rain seeping into the case. Our design for the rear bezel features an open, unobstructed camera pass through that maintains brilliant photo and flash quality almost as if the case wasn't there. This sandwich construction compresses the silicone truss creating a suspension system to cradle your iPhone like the precious baby it is.
Gorilla Glass Lens UPGRADE
Gorilla Glass is the hardest, thinnest, most durable glass that the iPhone uses for its display and it has defined the future of tactile interaction with mobile devices. Our biggest complaint with any tough case is the plastic display film that makes you feel like you are using a 1996 Palm Pilot. So we are doubling down with an optional upgrade: a sealed GORILLA Glass protective lens on the front bezel including anti-glare and anti-smudge coatings. You won't even know you are using protection and there's no loss of sensitivity or performance. Maintaining the interaction quality of the iPhone, it's soul, is essential and we have spared no expense to achieve this. Our Gorilla Glass lens alone costs more than our competitor's entire cases.
Gore Acoustic Ports
From spills and driving rain to the occasional toilet, the slightest bit of fluid can permeate your phone and cause the Apple Genius to say "no iPhone for you!" Someday soon all iPhones will be naturally water-resistant via nano coatings, but until then we are using GORE, the leader in environmental protection,to create a hydrophobic barrier for our speaker and mic porting.
Plug those Holes
Both the headset port and 30-pin connector are protected with gasket plugs that won't tear off after a few uses. Our iconic port cover for the headphone jack, inspired by Panerai watches, is machined from anodized aircraft grade aluminum and provides solid visual and tactile assurance that your port is secure. The 30-pin flap features a machined aluminum port plug ensuring better sealing and durability.
So many durable cases neglect the importance of silence. For uninterrupted quiet when your are ready to get down to business, we’ve provided easy access to the ringer switch. We wondered why the silence switch is always buried instead of being as simple as throwing a safety mechanism on a gun. Our patent-pending Silence Switch makes it fast and painless.
Why trust us with your baby?
From life-critical to lifestyle, we have designed dozens of performance products over the years and several products with durability, protection, and ruggedness ranging from point-of-care EMT ultrasound machines to intrinsically safe tools for hostile environments. We’ve learned a ton in the process: user needs, new materials, creative construction, fabrication techniques, and also plain old common sense. Whether it's survival, shocks, scratches, spills, slopes, or kids – and it's mostly kids– we’ve applied our experience in protection to TAKTIK.
A metal case the iPhone likes
Metal cases and the iPhone historically don't play well together. No one has successfully made a metal case that works well with antennas in the US. We knew making our bezels out of metal might work in Hong Kong and China where their wireless infrastructure is far stronger than the US. To our surprise, however, the metal housings are working without issue in Chicago and we plan to test them elsewhere during the project. Essentially, it works the same as if you were using the iPhone in your bare hand without a typical case. So if you are looking for something to disrupt the conversation even more, go for TAKTIK Aluminum.
We have designed the TAKTIK with military specifications in mind, leveraging our past experience designing field medical equipment and intrinsically safe gear and tools. We are currently testing our prototypes. The next step is to test production parts in a certified lab to quantify and validate the final rating level. This is part of the process of designing environmentally resistant products.

I love the case. Although it is a bit bulky, it looks good and is definitely very protective. However, note that the case is water resistant but not water proof.
The case was very easy to install, with 6 screws and its own screwdriver (however 2 more screws are provided). It may not be an ideal case for those who like to change their cases a lot as it may be a hassle.
The hole for the headphones is quite small and may not be compatible with certain headphones. I've not really had a problem with this because my headphones barely fit. But the charge opening did pose a problem for me because I could no longer dock my iPhone on my iHome anymore. A minor problem, though. The glass on the screen makes sort of a rainbow effect, but doesn't really affect anything. The screen is still sensitive to touch- no need for extra pressure.
I would definitely recommend this case to anyone who is prone to dropping their phones or just want extra protection for their phone. It looks good while protecting your phone too.
Also, the silence switch doesn't stay in place especially when you put the phone in your pocket. A lot of times I've put my phone on silent but then after I take it out of my pocket, it's not on silent anymore because the silent "button" is so loose. For some reason, the power/lock button is getting harder to press.... not sure why...
I've also noticed that the soft black material that surrounds the case and the back gathers a lot of lint/dust. Not the biggest deal, though. I still love the case all in all, just wish I could still dock my phone.
I want to test it
