About Hitcase

Some of the world’s greatest inventions and design ideas have come from a place of need rather than want.

Enter Hitcase – a patented case and accessories system that turns an iPhone into an action camera. Created and launched by entrepreneur and adventure enthusiast Brooks Bergreen in June 2012.

“I am a simple guy, I live to play. I like to travel,camp, ski, and ride motorbikes. I was so overwhelmed and bogged down by gear – cameras, sd cards, batteries, computers and more. I thought there has to be a way to make this easier, faster, lighter, and more fun. It was important for me to have one system using my iPhone that I could use – waterproof, that could sustain the elements, easy to mount anywhere and give me the shots I needed and wanted to share.” says Bergreen.

Hitcase is a waterproof, shockproof and mountable protective case for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and soon to release iPhone 6. Several lens options are offered including a removable flat lens, an underwater macro for iPhone (a world first) a 2x wide-angle TrueLUX™ lens and a 3x Super wide lens.

Bergreen also designed a core collection of unprecedented accessories and mounts that allow everyone from a pro surfer or skater to a parent shooting their child’s first bike ride the opportunity ease and functionality to record the most memorable, meaningful and exhilarating moments of their lives.

Hitcase is headquarted in Vancouver where Brooks resides as Founder and CEO. Bergreen has assembled a killer team inside as well as out.

He is joined by Athlete & Brand Marketing Manager, Cody Swansborough former Red Bull Marketing Manager and Independent action sports agent. Christie Craig has been tapped as VP of Sales; prior she served as VP of Sales for Contour Camera.
