The case is made of D30, a material with impact-absorbing properties. In everyday use, the molecules in D30 flow freely, but upon shock or impact they lock together - absorbing the impact force and spreading the shock evenly across the surface of your iPhone, providing extra durability.

- Perforated ‘dotted’ back design
- Minimalist design gives protection without adding bulk
- Raised screen bezel for extra protection
- Camera lens cut-out

Best case ever!
After owning many bulky Otterbox brand cases, I was looking for something that would survive drops, look cool, and not take up muc After owning many bulky Otterbox brand cases, I was looking for something that would survive drops, look cool, and not take up much space. This case is it! If you check out the website on D30 and Tech21's research that goes behind these cases, you will understand why they work. I can actually feel at peace in dropping my iPhone 5 because it just bounces and lands gently without any damage! I got the blue color and it is slim, attractive, and gets lots of attention. You cannot go wrong with this case. I do recommend purchasing a Zagg brand case-friendly screen protector because its hard to use normal cut protectors with this case as they will bubble up when the material of the case flexes. …

Makes the Case
This is my 2nd Tech21 Impact Mesh case. I had a clear one, which I loved till it yellowed and I couldn't stand to look at it anym This is my 2nd Tech21 Impact Mesh case. I had a clear one, which I loved till it yellowed and I couldn't stand to look at it anymore. I'll keep it as a backup though, since it saved my phone from a drop on a concrete floor more than once! That's the beauty of these cases: they look cool, make your phone easier to hold (bare aluminum is slippery!) and actually bounce when you drop them on hard surfaces. This case is a very good investment. Also, the blue color, aside from being pretty and cool looking, has an improved design over the clear and smoke color Tech21 cases. There are individual cutouts for the speaker/headphone jack, lightning connector, and second speaker. That's an improvement over the slightly flimsy clear version.
Great case! …

The one bad The case looks very good. I have gotten many complements about it. It is not too slippery and feels good in the hand.
The one bad thing about the case is the fit. The one I have is very loose in the upper right hand corner. It will pull off of that corner when taking my iPhone 5 out of my pocket. This in turn results in the top of the case coming loose.
Unsure if I got a bad case that did not cool correctly after it was molded, but cannot risk my iPhone 5 coming out of the case.
I will be returning the case. …

Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.

Does it protect the front? Yes, more than the back. It has a raised bevel.
I had this case on my phone, and it fell from a height of about two-three feet, square on its back, onto a hardwood floor. It really wasn't a long hard fall at all, but a connector inside became partially dislodged, and only about a third of the touch screen worked. Also, the screen displayed weird lines and was distorted as a result of the fall.
I love this case, but buyer beware, if your phone falls flat on it's back, it's likely to get damaged. Apple DID cover this for me (thankfully) under Applecare, but I can't guarantee you'll be as lucky. I have had many drops before and after that incident, and never had any other issues.
The sides of this case are awesome, and make the case bounce like a bouncy ball when struck on it's side. Definitely does a good job dispersing the energy of a hard drop on a corner. Despite the one time it didn't save my phone, (I'm not sure what case could have) I love it. …
