Anvil, AJ McLean announce line of Anvil Roadcases for iPhone

Anvil Cases is thrilled to announce a partnership with singer/songwriter AJ McLean around their exciting expansion into consumer products and mobile device protection. Anvil Cases reputation for ultimate protection has been well earned through decades of experience working to provide carrying and protective solutions for some of the world’s most demanding travel and touring conditions. The Anvil iPhone 5/5s Roadcase delivers the same level of legendary protection that music icons have been depending on for the past 60 years to safeguard their gear from the hardships of being on the road.

“Wouldn’t it be cool if the same company that protects some of your all-time favorite musicians gear was protecting your mobile devices?” That’s the question Anvil VP for Mobile Products, Jose Beltran, says inspired the Company to launch their new Consumer Products Division. As for this exciting new partnership, McLean says the idea came about when he met with some of the company executives and realized he’s already had a 20-year relationship with Anvil. “From the start, Anvil Cases have been helping the boys make sure our equipment travels safely while we’re out on the road, I trust Anvil and I love the brand. I’m excited to be involved in this expansion with them, specifically for a product that I think everyone should have protecting their phone.”

The Anvil iPhone 5/5s Roadcase protects against bumps, high impacts, scratches and scuffs. The unique 4-piece design delivers maximum protection with minimum bulk. “We didn’t just want to make a phone case that looked like a roadcase… We wanted to make a roadcase specifically designed to protect your phone,” says Beltran.

“One thing I love about Anvil’s design is that its as sleek as it is protective, so I don’t have to battle getting my phone in-and-out of my jeans” says McLean. The authentic Anvil Roadcase™ corners with brushed metal finish and reinforced rubber provide added shock absorption where it counts. And since Anvil knows you love music, they’ve paid extra attention to port access so you can feel comfortable you’ll be able to use your earbuds and headphones with the case on.
