UAG's new Silicone Collection cases cost $29.95 and are a great, colorful way to keep your AirPods and AirPods Pro safe and sound.

If you're looking for something a little more sturdy, the Hardshell Collection is where it's at. Versions for AirPods and AirPods Pro are again available, but there's only one color to choose from – Black/Orange. It does look pretty great, though.

Again, the full feature list includes a carabiner and this time there's a Lighting port plug, too.

  • Hard TPU exterior
  • Soft-touch silicone interior
  • Lighting port plug to protect from dust and water intrusion
  • Rugged Weatherproof Protection
  • Drop Tested // MIL STD 8105G
  • Dustproof, Water-resistant
