Over the last 6 months, we’ve extended our Eiger product range with new tablet cases and anti-spy screen protectors. And now we are excited to share with you the latest products in the Eiger portfolio.
The Eiger range is inspired by the Eiger mountain, one of the most emblematic sights of the Swiss Alps and symbol of ruggedness and beauty. To achieve overall protection the Eiger range provides a selection of high-quality tempered glass screen protectors and stylish rugged cases for mobile phones and tablets.
THE AVALANCHE CASE
The Avalanche case offers the highest levels of all year-round protection for your phone whatever your outdoor adventure may be.
Whether that is Skiing in the Alps, Mountain biking down your favourite trail or simply worry-free beach time, rest assured that your handset will be in good hands with Eiger Avalanche.
WHY BUY AVALANCHE?
Avalanche has been made to withstand up to 30 minutes of submersible time under water to a depth of 1m/3ft and to handle drops up to 2m/6ft but without the bulk of many rugged cases.
The fully sealed and clean design also ensures complete dust and dirt protection as well as an easily wipeable surface for anti-bacterial cleaners.
In-built screen protection will ensure your screen remains resistant to scratches.
An anti-slip grip minimises the chance of dropping your phone from the word go.
The highest level of protection for everyday cases
The 6 refers to dust and gives the highest level of dust and particle protection
The 8 refers to water and gives the 2nd highest level of high-pressure water ingress
This is a standard set down by the US Military and covers over 20 laboratory tests*
Avalanche is tested under these standards for water ingress using tests 506.50 for rain protection and test 512.5 for immersion in water

If Avalanche offers TOO much protection for your needs, the other cases from the Eiger line-up may better suit you: the North case for excellent drop protection, Glacier to show off your device or for the best in class screen protection, try our range of glass and tri-flex products.
Android Authority give a clarification on the acronyms used for protection:
“MIL-STD-810G is a U.S. military specification that guarantees a level of durability for a piece of technology. Specifically, it means the equipment has gone through a series of 29 tests. These put the phone up against shock, vibration, humidity, heat, cold, gunfire shock, humidity, and more. Any MIL-STD-810G device should be field ready, or even “combat ready” in principle.”
Samsung also clarify the IP-68 rating mentioned above:
IP, or Ingress Protection, is a universally accepted measurement of varying degrees for dust and liquid resistance. It means you can bring it with you on adventures and take comfort in knowing that you can carry on using these devices.
Devices backed by an international standard rating of IP68 are deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes.
