The Tech21 Impact Protection case with D3O provides a barrier between your iPhone 5 and everyday accidents. If you drop your iPhone in this case, the molecules within D3O lock together upon impact, absorbing the energy and dispersing it away from the iPhone to create an added layer of durability.
Combined with a sleek and minimalistic design, the Impact Band covers the most important sides of your iPhone 5. In particular, it encases the corners to provide a secure fit and feel. Yet it still gives you access to all ports and function buttons.
- Fully Integrated case with D3O military-grade impact protection material
- Band design for sleek and minimalistic style
- Encases all sides of the iPhone 5 to provide a secure fit and feel
- Full access to all ports and function buttons
- Clear back plate protects the back of your iPhone 5 from scratches

Great protection and doesn't hide phone's beauty!
I am very happy with the Tech21 Impact Band case for my new iPhone 5. I've had iPhones for the past 5 years and have used many cas I am very happy with the Tech21 Impact Band case for my new iPhone 5. I've had iPhones for the past 5 years and have used many cases/brands. Speck and Otterbox have been my consistent favorite until now.
I like that the Impact Band lips over the screen edge (like the Speck cases), so if you drop your phone screen side down, it's should be protected. Band fits secure and once on properly, all the buttons work as expected.
You can use band as a 'bumper' or a full case, (the clear back piece can be separated/removed). I have the clear back on mine so the back of my phone doesn't get scratched. My favorite thing about this case is that you get to see the beauty of the phone and it's protected!
As someone who's purchased many many cases through the past 5 years, I am happy to give 5 stars to Tech21 Impact Band Case for iPhone 5.
And by the way, I probably would have never purchased this brand had it not been sold at the Apple Store. I'm glad I gave it a chance. You should too. …

Great protective minimalistic case for the iPhone

The case features a special D30 material that hardens when dropped to protect the phone and say that this can make the case up to 21% better than the otter box. The case can be used as a bumper or a real case by putting the included plastic cover into the case before installing it. The case has good build quality and comes in a very nice package. I have dropped my iPhone 5 a couple of times in this case and nothing has happened. The buttons are easy to press and all of the ports are easily accessible.
Overall a wonderful iPhone 5 case. …

Pretty but not functional
I loved the case in the box, but then realized that the band and the clear backing are two different pieces. Aside from being dif I loved the case in the box, but then realized that the band and the clear backing are two different pieces. Aside from being difficult to snap on to the phone, the back scratched as soon as I tried to slide my phone into the case. Once the case was on, it looked bulky and made the top power button and +/- buttons difficult to push. I would not recommend this case. …

I have had numerous phones and cases (probably close to 30 of both in my 36 years of life). The case is fairly streamline for the protection it offers and it still shows off the nice sleek look of your iPhone. I was being a bit cheap about the case after purchasing the phone and finally bit the bullet - glad I did. Love this case (and it fits the phone well, all buttons can be used). Highly recommend. …

Too Big for the iPhone 5
Apple doesn't make a bumper yet for the iPhone 5(which is what I had on my iphone 4 and really liked), so when I saw this I was re Apple doesn't make a bumper yet for the iPhone 5(which is what I had on my iphone 4 and really liked), so when I saw this I was really excited because I thought it would be just as good and it is not. If you have a Zagg screen protector, like I do, this case will rub it off and make it begin to lift. It does this because the case is too big for the phone. It gradually will slide up for down. It comes in nice colors and I think it really would protect the phone, but it just doesn't fit well and since the Zagg protector is almost $30 on its own I had to remove the case. Still looking for another one : ( …
