Phoozy Smartphone and Tablet Case Review


We picked up our first Phoozy XP-3 smartphone protection case way back in the summer of 2018. We took it fishing down in Missouri over a week at Table Rock Lake. Since then the Phoozy has traveled with us over the last four years, and hot or cold, when our phone went into our pack, it was protected inside the Phoozy just to keep it at a standard temperatures.

The vast majority of our hunts are in cold weather temperatures here in Nebraska with the exception of our turkey and predator hunts which can be quite warm.  These days we have a Phoozy Insulated Tablet Case for our iPad as well as the newest XP-3 Thermal Capsule for the iPhone.

These new cases are Climate Proof, Sink Proof and Drop Proof. I like to think of them as basically bomb proof. There really isn’t anything you can do to hurt your phone in these cases unless of course you are dumb enough to shoot the case with your phone inside of the Phoozy. We don’t recommend that. 

Why the Phoozy?

The new Phoozy cases have only gotten better. The Apollo II case even has a microbial version and the XP-3 now has attachment straps to attach the case to your backpack, belt, caribiner, lanyard or onto your pack using Molle webbing.  When I am hunting, hiking or traveling the Phoozy case is almost always with me.  I work hard to limit my phone being out when I am hunting so I can be present to the moment and the only time it comes out is for the opportunity to take a photo.  It keeps me in the moment and it keeps my phone ready to use when I need it.

If you are looking for the best protection for your device from overheating in summer temperatures or insulation in extreme cold temperatures. If you are looking for a floating water-resistant case to keep your phone safe on the boat or in a duck blind. If you are looking for a bomb-proof case to keep your electronics safe, take a serious look at the Phoozy. My favorite feature of the Phoozy is that it keeps my expensive iPhone out of the eyes of thieves and out of my hands when I should be enjoying the moment. The Phoozy reminds me to stash my phone for when I need it and this all comes at a price less than $50.00.
