The case is made of D30, a material with impact-absorbing properties.

- Made of D3O material, known for its high-impact protection
- Perforated ‘dotted’ back design
- Minimalist design gives protection without adding bulk
- Raised screen bezel for extra protection
- Camera lens cut-out

Very nice fit with iphone5
I recently bought an iphone5 and tried one or two cases before finding this one. I am very happy with this case:
It is well mad I recently bought an iphone5 and tried one or two cases before finding this one. I am very happy with this case:
It is well made and fits very snuggly around the iphone5. The texture of the case is good so it doesn't snag on pockets etc and there are three internal rubber cushions wrapping the corners of the phone - so major impact zones are very well protected indeed. It does a very nice job of protecting the phone without significantly increasing it's bulk.
I disagree completely with the previous reviewer who found a poor fit. I find an excellent fit; all buttons are easily accessible and you can fit earphone jacks (of at least three headphones manufacturers) as well as lightening charger when the case is on. There are also large enough openings for the speakers on the phone base. So... I find that no functionalities of the phone are impeded using this case. I really do not understand the reviewer's comments regarding fit and alignment and find the exact opposite.
Finally - I really like the colour combination with the white iphone5 :-)
I have no reservations in recommending this case to friends. …

Secure and practical case for iPhone 5 and 5S
I needed a secure and comfortable case to protect my iPhone 5S. This fulfilled my requirements - it offers all-round protection i I needed a secure and comfortable case to protect my iPhone 5S. This fulfilled my requirements - it offers all-round protection including a lip on the front, it is grippy as I am prone to dropping stuff and it doesn't slide so easily out of a pocket and lastly it isn't too bulky.
I wish it came in less garish colours than pink and blue (for girls or boys - how very last century!) and it's maybe just a millimetre or so thicker than it could be. But it's fine and (so far) it does what it says on the tin having survived at least half a dozen minor drops.
Shave a millimetre all round and offer a bigger range of colours and this would be unbeatable! …

Love this Case

Excellent design, i think the blue looks really cool.
Not bulky. Adds a small about round the edges, but nothing that bothers me at all.
Feels really really safe and secure. Excellent protection on the edges which is what i was after.
Highly recommend. …

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. …
