Accessory maker Incipio is present at CES 2013 to unveil its iPhone 5 ATLAS Waterproof Ultra-Rugged Case, which they promise you’ll be able to buy at AT&T and online in February.

The ATLAS case is waterproof, dustproof, drop-proof and shockproof, Incipio says. It’s engineered with a co-molded Plextonium ergonomic space frame design and an impact-resistant Flex2O soft shell.

The case reportedly provides the utmost protection for your iPhone without obstructing any of the handset’s ports, buttons and controls. They’ve also got an iOS sidekick app ready for it, though it’s not available on iTunes yet.

It not only covers the iPhone’s metal case, but also the display, thanks to a built-in tempered glass which provides “optical clarity and protection against harsh conditions and rough environments.”

The ATLAS is waterproof up to 2 meters (6.56 feet) for one hour, says Incipio, which certainly takes the edge off a bit. What happened to waterproof, period?

Still, the company says the case meets USA Military standards of protection, and has a full IP-68 rating against water and dust.

The iPhone 5 ATLAS case is slated to launch next month at AT&T stores and online in Black/Grey, White/Grey, and Pink/Grey.
