The Dog & Bone Wetsuit for iPhone 6 Plus is an excellent rugged waterproof case for the iPhone 6 Plus. It provides 6.6 feet of drop protection and can be submerged up to 6.6 feet for up to 30 minutes. In addition, it is reasonably slim, given its level of protection, and has a very nice feel in the hand. It can be used with or without a screen protector—there is no built in screen protector to cover up your lovely iPhone 6 Plus screen. Call quality is quite good, touch id works well as long as your finger has a small footprint, and installation is not particularly difficult. What’s not to love!
1. Can be immersed up to 6.6 feet for up to 30 minutes
2. Has 6.6 foot drop protection
3. Case has nice, non slippery feel and seems very well constructed
4. Touch id works fine as long as you use a smaller finger as the touch id space is somewhat constrained.
5. Audio quality is good. I had seen some reviews of the iPhone 6 version which complained about the audio quality, but they seem to have fixed this in the 6 Plus version.
6. Swiping up to access control panel works fine. Again, some reviewers complained of problems swiping up on the iPhone 6 version of this case, but my 6 Plus case did not affect my swiping at all.
1. If you have large fingers, you might find the touch id to be harder to use.
2. Keep in mind that if you choose to use this case without the included plastic screen protector or some other screen protector such as Dog & Bone’s Bone Guard, your screen is in danger of being scratched by sand if you use it at a beach. One of the drawbacks of going around naked!
Conclusion: This is a really nice waterproof case for the iPhone 6 Plus; many thanks to the kind folks at Dog & Bone for sending it out to me. I haven’t reviewed the Lifeproof cases for the iPhone 6 Plus, but the ones I have seen in Best Buy were somewhat underwhelming in terms of apparent built quality. The Dog & Bone Wetsuit just feels very well made and has a great feel in the hand. It is available directly from Dog & Bone for $89.95:
