First Look: UAG Pathfinder SE Camo Phone Cases

posted on June 7, 2018
Designed to appeal to those with a flair for the tactical aesthetic, the Urban Armor Gear (UAG) Pathfinder SE Camo series of smartphone cases are built to protect valuable mobile devices with a number of built-in protective features.

"Our new Camo Cases available in Hunter, Arctic, and Midnight colorways, appeal to those who want to stand out but not too much, while keeping the rugged & lightweight protection UAG is known for," said Michael McVerry, UAG senior marketing manager.

Each Pathfinder SE Camo phone case from UAG is constructed with a composite design, allowing it to remain lightweight while still offering a range of protection options. Each case features skid pads and a screen surround that encompasses the lip of the phone screen, preventing possible scratching if the phone is dropped on its face. The case features a hard, armored exterior that's paired with a soft core designed to absorb shock and redirect impact forces from the encased phone.

To guard against impact, the Pathfinder SE phone case is tested to MIL STD 810G 516.6 drop-test standards, required by the military when impact-testing gear for field use. Despite this heavy-duty protection, case designers also preserved the accessibility and usability of the platform, building in oversized push buttons and easy-access slots for charging and input ports. The protective lip on the front face of the phone is also specially contoured to prevent impeding touchscreen operation. Encased phones are also compatible with Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and wireless-charging devices.

For owners of an Apple iPhone X, 8, 7, 6 and related Plus models, UAG Pathfinder SE Camo phone cases are available in Artic, Midnight and Hunter color options. Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ have the Midnight-colored option available. The suggested retail price on the phone cases is $49.95.
