Why We Created The XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case.
Personal protection and preparedness is something we are truly passionate about. We wanted to create a way to integrate personal protection into our daily lives, without compromising our daily routines.
Some Startling Statistics:
- There are roughly 294,000 sexual assault victims per year
- 1 in 5 women are victims of rape
- There were roughly 750,000 aggravated assaults last year
- Approximately 351,000 people were robbed and or mugged last year
Personal protection and feeling safe have become very real topics of discussion. Many options for self protection/self defense are just not practical or applicable to most people. A weapon is only as good as the one you have at the time you needed. This got us thinking… What are the EDC (every day carry) items that I always have with us? Wallets, phones, pens, pocket knives, headphones…etc. But one thing we’ve seen remain consistent as an every day carry item, is our cell phone. Our vision is to take our most consistent every day carry item and make it even more useful than it already is.
Our Vision For The XF-1 Personal Protection 6 & 6s iPhone Case.
Your iPhone just got that much better! The XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case is the first of its kind. As we designed XF-1 we knew it had to be safe, discreet and it couldn’t add any extra bulk or hassle to your daily carry routine. We wanted to always have a last line of defense with us. We believe that the best tool is the one you have with you. If you have ever tried carrying things for self defense you quickly find out that its bulky, impractical and it just gets in your way. The RavenCrest Tactical XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case will give you and your loved ones peace of mind without adding all the fuss. This tactical personal protection iPhone case will be at your side ready to serve you at a moments notice.

XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case Specs:
PLEASE NOTE: The PROTOTYPE in our photos is a 3D Printed model and not actual materials. Prototype is rough and made from only ABS plastic and does not include the metal screw inserts or metal glass breakers ball bearings in the corners.
The XF-1 is currently for the iPhone 6 & 6s Models.
We designed the XF-1 iPhone Case to be as slim and non intrusive as possible while still maintaining a strong and protective case.
Width = 2.75″
Height (Thickness) = 0.625″
Totally Concealed Until You Need It.
One of the things that makes the XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case so attractive is that it’s completely covert. No one should ever know you are carrying any kind of tool to defend yourself. The XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case allows its operator to quickly and discreetly get to an edged tool for self-defense. The push dagger can be accessed while the phone is in your hand or even up by your ear while you are talking on the phone.
The XF-1 Personal Protection iPhone Case is safe for its operator but devastating for the “bad guys”.
Our exclusive covert push dagger is Made from PPA (High Performance Polyamide) and will not cut to the touch but can quickly lacerate when light force is applied. As a puncturing tool it performs equal to its steel brethren. The covert push dagger also locks safely in place to give you peace of mind. Edged weapons are great “equalizers”. We believe no matter how big or strong the “bad guy” is, an edged weapon can put you at the advantage you need to survive an attack and get home safely to your loved ones.
Who is the Personal protection case for?
- College Students
- VIP Security Professionals
How Far Along We Are On This Project
We currently have all concepts, CAD work, 3D printed prototypes complete. We have our manufacture standing by with molds and all materials. We have everything in place and ready to run with this project. We just need your help to fund and make it a reality!
Risks and challenges
There really is very little risk in terms of producing and delivering the final product. All research, manufacturing processes, prototyping and developments for the project have been completed. We need your help to get over the finance hump to bring this project to life. Upon release of the funds we should be able to ship all orders within 12 weeks. We’ve built enough buffer into our timeline to allow for delays and delivery on time. However, if we have an unexpected challenge, and we’re running behind schedule, you’ll be the first to know. Regardless of how many orders we would need to fulfill we will have no problem doing so.
