Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 11 Pro

Frequent travelers know that it is easy to damage or drop expensive tech equipment when rushing through busy airports, train stations, and packed city streets. That is why it is so important to invest in quality protective cases. I am honestly so surprised by the number of people that opt not to do so for whatever reason.

This is especially important for those that like to keep up with the latest tech developments and purchase whatever pops onto the market. Whenever something new seems to be launched, Catalyst is hot on its tails with gear to keep it safe and sound.

Putting the Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone Pro to the test

Catalyst proudly proclaims that not only will its Waterproof Case for iPhone 11 Pro case provide protection from drops or falls from as high as 6.6 feet, but it also keeps your device safe from moisture. Whether you use your phone in the rain, take it skiing with you and inadvertently drop it in the snow, or happen to get it splashed on while at the pool or beach, this case seems to keep your expensive lifeline safe.

The case does its job well thanks to its sturdy, rubber exterior that comes in a variety of colors and color combinations. It has a clear surface on the front and back of the case. Catalyst’s signature truss cushioning system within the rubber case itself is designed to soften the blunt force if the case were to be dropped. The case also has a raised edge that is meant to keep the screen safe if the phone were to fall flat on its face (a lesson that I learned the hard way with an expensive Mophie charging case that I had relied on for protection yet failed me).

It is made from a scratch-proof polycarbonate material, and all of the standard charging and earbud ports plus volume control buttons remain within easy reach when the case is on your phone.

The basic details

The case itself is completely sealed so that if your phone were to be submerged into water as deep as 33 feet, it would continue to be safe from damage. That is pretty deep! Even with the waterproof case on, the quality of sound if you want to watch movies or listen to music on your phone while at the beach or pool remains solid.

If you choose to take advantage of the iPhone 11 Pro’s excellent camera lens and photographic capabilities, this waterproof case will not hinder that either. You can still use all the standard features of your phone from swiping or tapping on buttons on the screen to applying flash or edits when snapping photos. Even your touch ID and facial recognition capabilities to start your iPhone work well with the case attached to your phone.

There is a hard-coated optical camera lens that provides the same level of photographic quality so that you can take phones on your wet and wild vacation without any concern for your phone. I took mine to a waterslide park and had zero concern about the phone being damaged thanks to the Catalyst case. There is a waterproof plug that covers the charging port. It can easily be removed so that you can charge your device without having to remove the entire case itself.

The Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 11 Pro adds a bit of bulk to the phone, but it is easy to forget that it is there. It provides excellent protection without hindering the phone’s long list of benefits. The Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 11 Pro retails for about $90 on the Catalyst website, but can also be found via numerous other online and in-person retailers.
