Backbone Media Dials PR for Urban Armor Gear

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (Nov. 17 , 2020) – Urban Armor Gear, leading designers of rugged, lightweight mobile device cases and accessories, has teamed up with Backbone Media as its public relations agency of record.

Founded in Southern California and inspired by a playground of rustic coastline and majestic mountains, UAG products instill the very nature of adventure. What started as two engineers looking to create rugged long-lasting products, UAG has grown into a team of designers and ambassadors with backgrounds in action sports and athletics.

“Our products are designed by adventure seekers for adventure seekers,” said Scott Hardy, CEO of UAG. “We work hard to push the limits of conventional ideas, and we want to inspire individuals to do the same. With products that offer unbeatable protection, we hope to enable people to take on extraordinary feats and live every day to the fullest.”

Designed for durability, UAG cases offer military grade protection – a feature that sets itself apart from competitors. To achieve this certification, a device must be dropped 26 times from a height of 48 inches, on each face, corner, and back. The device must function properly after the test while not sustaining any damage to the screen. From falls to shocks to vibrations, the cases are designed for toughness while maintaining a sleek design.

“Urban Armor Gear is comprised of an unparalleled group of hard workers and talented go-getters. They understand the subtle detail that provides protection for devices and allows for seamless performance in rugged environments,” said Penn Newhard, President, Backbone Media. “Technology is with us everywhere we go, and whether you’re headed on a trail run or into the mountains you can trust UAG cases to keep your tech protected.”
