Grand View Outdoors reviews the new PHOOZY XP3 - Dave Maas

Fact: Several hours spent in a treestand with air temps in the single digits can rob your phone of battery power and leave you unable to call for help in case of an emergency. Not good. Likewise, summer days spent soaking up the sun on the beach or in a boat can be tough on smartphones, causing higher battery consumption and overheating. To solve these problems, meet the PHOOZY Thermal Capsule, the world’s first solution to shield smartphones from the most challenging environments on earth.

I recently unboxed a PHOOZY XP3 Series case and plan to use it immediately with my iPhone SE. As you can see from the photo at the top of this page, I didn’t choose the Realtree EDGE camo model (left), although I must admit it looks great. Instead, I went with the Mahi Green model that’s part of the Realtree Fishing series. My plan is to use the PHOOZY on the lake this summer, and I don’t want to lose my phone in the forest during fall hunting season, either, so I like colors that stand out.

My first impressions of the XP3 are all positive. My iPhone slides into the case easily, and the hook-and-loop closure system (think Velcro) works well. I like the multi-point attachment system on the back of the XP3; it should work well with a belt or anytime I want to snap a carabiner to the XP3 for securing it to a backpack. Finally, I often leave my wallet at home but grab my driver’s license, fishing/hunting license and a credit card, and the XP3’s internal stash pocket (right) will be perfect for this application.
