When they call their products tough they mean it. They use the same design for both their civilian and military mounts. As a member of the armed forces I have personally tried to destroy both models and they are build to the same standards, and they are both very very hard to break. I have had this mount on dual sport bikes in the dirt to sport bikes on a track, and not once has it come loose or let go of my phone. Even after a, ahem, meeting with the pavement, the RAM Mount did its job flawlessly.
