Smooth contours, grippy yet easy to pull from pocket, slick looks & D3O!!!
This is a really nice well made case. I ordered it on a whim as I prefer to not use a case with my iPhones, but the iPhone 5 is su This is a really nice well made case. I ordered it on a whim as I prefer to not use a case with my iPhones, but the iPhone 5 is such a jewel and so slippery. I have the black phone and the smoke color case and they look slick together. It is not really mesh, but a texture that is within the smooth semitransparent back. It has a shape that is comfortable to hold and very slim (perfect for someone who doesn't want a case but needs one). I ride off road motorcycles and my body armor is made of D3O material. This stuff is unreal. It's amazing impact absorbing properties is hard to realize examining this case, but my experience with this stuff in my body armor makes me very comfortable with the idea of dropping my phone. …

Great iPhone Case
Before Tech21 was even in Apple Stores, I purchased the impact case for my iPhone 4 several months ago. It has a great feel in you Before Tech21 was even in Apple Stores, I purchased the impact case for my iPhone 4 several months ago. It has a great feel in your hand, fits the phone well, and the phone remains intact (good protection). Then I got an iPhone 5, gave my case to my dad, and bought 2 more (one for my mom). The iPhone 5 case is even better. It is slimmer and offers the same protection. The only weakness is on the bottom where material becomes thin to allow access across the speaker, lightning port, and headphone port. However, it doesn't harm the structural integrity of the case because the corners are strong. I would recommend to anyone. …

Perfect mix of form and function!
I'm a constant iPhone case buyer, always switching, swapping and forever changing my case to get the best mix of form and function I'm a constant iPhone case buyer, always switching, swapping and forever changing my case to get the best mix of form and function. The Tech 21 case is by far the best I've found yet, and I think my search is over (for now).
From what I've found, it offers the best protection without creating a massive bulky exterior to the sleek iPhone. I found myself either removing old cases due to the bulk or just wanting my iPhone to look like an "iPhone" and not a truck tire. The Tech 21 addresses all my case needs, as the phone fits snug, the material is light and slides out of my pocket easily, and it still maintains the sleek look.
Overall, great case at a good price, highly recommended! …

It fits well (snug, yet easy to put on), looks great (does not look cheap, looks remarkably good on the phone, attractive colors and design), is well constructed (provides a sturdy feel with just enough bulk to make the phone comfortable to hold but not too much to take away from its sleekness, and material has a great soft, smooth feel with just enough grip), and provides great protection (D30 -- product used by military -- lined case does what it is designed to do and was accidentally put to the test once now, since purchased, leaving my phone fully intact, operable, and undamaged). I am completely satisfied with this phone case. It is by far the best one I have used/seen/tried. I first purchased the smokey grey color and have now, many months later, purchased the clear as well. …

It is inside the case, and barely visible, once on the phone. In the package, I thought it might look a bit "tacky", but on my gold 5s, it nearly disappears.
