We're officially kicking winter to the curb and pretending the polar vortex never happened. It's time to revel in nature's glory by kayaking, biking or at least relocating to the backyard for a bit. Of course, that means more chances for your smartphone to tumble onto the pavement instead of couch cushions, so we've put together this week's giveaway with that in mind. The device protection gurus at Tech21 are providing a Samsung Galaxy S5 for one lucky Engadget reader and bundling it with an Impact Tactical case and Impact Shield screen protectors to keep it safe from harm. The case is all about shock absorption and impact resistance (if the name didn't clue you in) and it was designed to keep the phone's slim profile intact. All you need to do is head down to the Rafflecopter widget for up to three changes at winning this butterfinger-proofed smartphone package. Now, maybe you can have nice things again.

Winner: congratulations to Viktor G., Guelph, ONT.
