Survival Series: Texas Winter Storm vs. Rokform case

Survival Series: Texas Winter Storm vs. Rokform case

Last month, one of the most severe storms in history passed through the state of Texas, leaving widespread devastation across the state. In the storms’ aftermath, millions of Texans were left without power, some for several days. Today, we’re sharing a survival story that was sent to us by one Rokform customer and Texas-local who found himself in the thick of the storm action.


The Story

As snow blanketed most of the state, a rare occurrence in the Lone Star state, many drivers found themselves ill-equipped to handle snowy and icy road conditions. Luckily, good neighbors like Steve, a Rokform customer, were around to support those in need.

I just wanted to let you know how lucky I was to have your case on my phone. With our big storm and Texas I was helping tow cars up the hills. Dropped my phone in the snow. Found it 18 hours later. My phone was run over and frozen. But no damage at all and works perfectly.

Rokform Survival Series Texas Storm

Incredible! We’ve heard stories of Rokform cases getting run over and surviving, but this is definitely the first time we’ve heard a phone withstanding the elements and the road. We want to thank Steve for sending us this story, but more importantly for being a good samaritan by helping his neighbors and strangers get a tow in the middle of the storms. 


The Gear

If this survival story doesn’t convince you, we don’t know what will. Rokform cases are built to protect your phone in even the most severe situations. The Rugged Series and Crystal Series are constructed with dual-layer protection and drop tested to exceed military standards. Shop the full collection for Apple and Samsung smartphones here
