A look at Gear4’s cases for Apple’s 2019 iPhones

Gear4 has released several new and/or updated cases for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. I’ve had a chance to test out the $44.99 Holborn.

It offers 13-foot drop protection thanks to D3O technology around the sides and backside of the case. (D3O is the same material used by the military and professional athletes, according to the folks at Gear 4).

Despite its durability,  edge-to-edge protection, and enhanced back protection, it’s relatively svelte. The Holborn has a sleek, soft-touch finish that feels good and offers decent grip-ability. It’s also wireless charging compatible.

There’s nothing earthshaking or groundbreaking about the case. But it’s slim, stylish, and protective. The Holborn is available in black, burgundy, and lilac.
