Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Galaxy Note 20 Ultra rugged cases regularly as new ones launch.
Otterbox Defender Pro
Our list of the best rugged cases is a true who’s who of case makers. Up first is the Otterbox Defender Pro, a tough hybrid case with a polycarbonate shell and synthetic rubber slipcover. While the case may be too large to fit in your pocket, it includes a belt clip for easy access and an antimicrobial coating should help to deter germs. Otterbox offers the Defender Pro in either black or Berry Potion Pink.
You can also get 10% off site-wide, along with free shipping with code OTTER10 at otterbox.com. Some exclusions apply.
Spigen Tough Armor
Not to be outdone, the Spigen Tough Armor case offers hybrid protection as well as a built-in kickstand. The inner TPU layer helps to absorb the impact of drops while a solid polycarbonate shell stands up to scrapes and scratches. Spigen’s Tough Armor case is thin enough to support wireless charging and a series of soft pads add further protection inside the rubber shell. You can grab the Tough Armor in black, bronze, gunmetal, or white.

While most cases use a TPU bumper to secure your device in place, the Poetic Revolution adds a stiff polycarbonate lip for heavy-duty protection. The lip forms somewhat of a polycarbonate sandwich, as the back panel is made of the same material with a TPU bumper around the edges. Poetic’s Revolution case is MIL-STD 810G certified and a built-in kickstand makes it easy to stream your favorite shows. You can get this rugged Galaxy Note 20 Ultra case in black, blue, or pink.

Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro
The Unicorn Beetle Pro and Poetic’s Revolution could be siblings for how similar the two cases are. Each adopts the rigid lip bezel, a similar industrial design, and a built-in kickstand. In fact, the Unicorn Beetle Pro takes things a bit further as the company has tested the rugged Galaxy Note 20 Ultra case for drops from up to 20 feet. It’s easy to grip yet thin enough to support wireless charging, and the case comes in black, purple, Metallic Red, and Slate Blue.
Samsung Rugged case
It makes perfect sense that Samsung offers a great rugged case for its own phablet — after all, it had a head start on the design. Samsung’s case features a series of vertical ridges that resemble those of a heavy-duty suitcase while textured side rails are easy to grip in wet conditions. The case offers one of the more unique designs, though the trusty folding kickstand is similar to that of other cases and positions at either 45 or 60-degrees.
