Really nice - actually better than Apple's iPhone 4/4s bumper in some ways
This is a very well made bumper. I've used it for a month and the fit is still very tight - no stretching at all and it's held up This is a very well made bumper. I've used it for a month and the fit is still very tight - no stretching at all and it's held up extremely well.
The Tavik bumper is very similar to the bumper Apple made for the iPhone 4/4s with a few exceptions:
1) The power and volume buttons are rubber not metal
2) This bumper does NOT have the problem where the rubber stretches around the headphone jack and makes the bumper fit become looser overall over time.
My only gripe is this: The power button, when the bumper was brand new, took a lot of pressure to actually power on/off the phone. It has since "broken in" and operates as expected - easily turning the phone on/off. It's the only reason I knocked it down a star.
Otherwise, excellent bumper. Maintains the thinness of the iPhone 5 or 5s. I have had no problems having it work with the standard apple Lightning Charger. Fits nicely. …

Great Product! Lightning connector fits fine...
I was interested in this case because i really like the bumper case idea for the iPhone. After reading the previous review about t I was interested in this case because i really like the bumper case idea for the iPhone. After reading the previous review about the lightning connector not fitting, i went to my local apple store and checked it out first hand. I am not sure which connector the other person was using, but the apple lightning connector fit perfectly. As for the case, the feel is great and it looks awesome on my black and slate iPhone 5. My only complaint would be that the lock button looses its tactile feedback with the case on. However, this seems to be fairly common across all cases i have used! …

It feels excellent in the hand everything about it is a plus. Buttons maybe be a little tough but that's what you get with a new case over time it will be easy.

Had several mishaps since getting this, but no problem. Pleasantly surprised a bumper case can provide such fine protection.

READ THIS !!!
I have many cases! I got the red Tavik bumper. The bumper is uber high quality...fits tightly around the iPhone with no chance of I have many cases! I got the red Tavik bumper. The bumper is uber high quality...fits tightly around the iPhone with no chance of sagging or getting loose (at least at this time). Surprisingly, for such a tight case, it is fairly easy to take off. And because it is tight, there is no chance of the corners to peel back on impact (front or rear face). Everything is great...EXCEPT power/sleep button. It is hard to press and hurts your finger(s) with repeated press. So, why 5 stars?
READ THIS: There is an EASY fix to the power button. Take a SHARP POINTED KNIFE. From top of bumper (withOUT your iPhone in it!), stab/punture the SIDES of the power button...two tiny holes on EACH side of the button. This releases the tension. Put tiny holes, NOT anything bigger. Make it so that the pointed end of the knife JUST comes thru the plastic/rubber on the inside. 4 holes total...2 each side. TAVIK just made the tension too much with the power button...this "mod" releases the tension.
NOW, the power button works PERFECT! CLICKY TOO. Easy to press with a satisfying click.
Hope this helps...AWESOME BUMPER...HIGH QUALITY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It is compatible with ZAGG HD front & back protectors. It does NOT eat too much into the display...so, should be OK with 99.9% of protectors.
Hope this helps! …
