HONG KONG and NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Catalyst Lifestyle Limited, an innovative design and development company that makes consumer lifestyle accessories, together with Griffin Technology, one of the most established companies with more than 20 years in the iOS accessory space, are excited to announce the availability of the first product under their partnership, the Survivor™ + Catalyst® Waterproof Case for iPhone 5. The partnership is bringing the world's best waterproof case to market that is superior in design, quality, functionality and usability.

"Catalyst has come a long way since the launch of our first case, the EscapeCapsule® waterproof case on Kickstarter. The Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof Case for iPhone 5 is the culmination of over 2 years of research and development that has enabled us to build this fully-functional, everyday case that offers complete protection so that you can go anywhere with your iPhone and capture and share special moments," said June Lai, CEO of Catalyst Lifestyle.

"With summer right around the corner, Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof is the perfect companion at pool parties, hiking trips, and extreme sporting adventures. It's a must-have for anyone in need of superior protection for their iPhone 5," said Mark Rowan, President of Griffin Technology.

Designed and built for freedom in and around water, Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof has been designed to go wherever and whenever adventure calls. The case is waterproof down to 3 meters (9.8 feet) deep and drop proof to 2 meters (6.6 feet.), while at the same time providing full access to all of the iPhone's features to take photos and videos, make phone calls, send messages, listen to music and even plug in to recharge the battery. The touchscreen, all sensors, cameras and buttons are protected and functional while side latches secure the iPhone 5 inside the watertight case.

The crystal clear housing is a signature feature from Catalyst's first case, the EscapeCapsule®, and is designed to allow users to showcase their iPhone as well as visually inspect the o-ring seals for reliable waterproof protection. Now users can stay connected and capture moments of a lifetime with the Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof.

Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof for iPhone 5 is a fully covered and sealed waterproof case engineered to protect the iPhone 5 from impacts, water, rain, snow, sand, mud, scratches or anything else that an adventure enthusiast can come up with. Each Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof is tested to meet the Company's IP68 waterproof standard of 3 meters deep for 30 minutes before being approved for sale. The case is made from the strongest materials including:

  • Polycarbonate frame and rear cover
  • TPE shock-absorbing bumpers
  • PET-integrated screen cover
  • Nylon latches, charge port door, volume controls, power button, and home button
  • Silicone O-rings that form a compression line which can be seen through the clear housing to visually confirm that the case is watertight
