A few months ago we received the Thule Atmos X5 iPhone 6 case from Thule which we have tested on our trips this year. Since we are approaching 2017 it’s time to write a short review about our experience with the Thule Atmos X5.


Hiking and Packrafting in Norway

Field Testing

We have tested the Thule X5 on our packrafting trips in Scotland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Japan, Russia and France this year. The trip reports will be available soon on our blog.

In general we were quite happy with the Thule Atmos X5. The Thule X5 case is waterproof. However, we have not tested yet if the case would be waterproof as well if we would submerge it for a longer time in 1-2 meters but for our regular packrafting use we could not find any faults at all. We also did not perform any specific drop test but once Patrick’s phone dropped from 1 meter and it did not have any impact on the phone.
