    Best Case I Ever Own

    • Written by from Pittsford

    I love this case! I stood in the store trying out different cases. Other cases felt like I had no control over the grip of the iPhone, and I wanted to make sure it was protected if I do drop my iphone.

    This case has the best feel and I love the grip. Also, the case itself covers the edge of the iPhone, which I do like. Make sure you get the Tech 21 Impact "Mesh" b/c there other cases did not have the feel as to this one.

    Sleek case, great casual drop protection

    • Written by from Newport News

    Recently purchased this for my 5S and have been extremely pleased thus far. The case material is quite grippy in your hand, yet slides smoothly in and out of pants pockets. The button presses are a bit firm, but doesn't require the ridiculous amount of force to depress that many other high-end protective cases possess. The ports for the mute switch, charging port and headphone jack all line up very well and have stayed that way.

    I went with the smokey color, which pairs well with the black phone. The unit remains very slim and the orange glow of the D30 material is very tame, allowing it to still look sleek and professional.

    My biggest concern when purchasing was how it would hold up to the inevitable first drop. I fumbled the phone about two days into owning it, with it landing screen side down on concrete from about four feet in the air. Not a scratch or crack could be found on the device and only the slightest of nicks was made in the case material. Overall, highly recommended.

    Best case I've owned so far

    • Written by from Slippery Rock

    Great case for the iPhone 5. It doesn't add any thickness or noticeable weight to the iPhone.
    I have owned 3 different cases for my iPhone 5, and this will be the last one I own. In all regards it's perfect and appears to protect the phone well. The only thing I will advise people of is that there is no screen protection at all. By that I mean that it's exactly as thick as the iPhone, so if you drop it on it's screen, there's a possibility that it'll scratch or crack the screen. Other then that, it's perfect!

    Phone survived 4 story fall

    • Written by from Bountiful

    I work in the elevator industry here in the United States, so often, I work many stories up from the ground level. Recently I was on the forth story of a building when I accidentally dropped my iPhone 5. My phone fell four stories down onto a concrete floor, bounced up a couple feet and then back onto the floor. I have dropped phones before, including iPhones, and when that moment comes, you just expect the phone to shatter into many pieces. So there I sat waiting for that moment of impact. To see what damage would result. I couldn't believe what I saw when I picked up my phone to see not a scratch, chip or crack. In fact, I was using an app at the time to turn on the flash as a flashlight. The flashlight was even still on. Now the case was a little scuffed up, but I will gladly purchase another $35 case to save a $1000 phone. I truly believe this case saved my phone. Four stories down onto a concrete floor is simply amazing. Thank you Tech21 for designing a product that actually works!!!

    Really great

    • Written by from San Francisco

    The fit is perfect on this case. It really protects my phone all the way around while not adding too much bulk. I would describe it as a solid bumper case with a back. I appreciate the raised bezel so i don't worry if I set the phone screen side down. It was one of the most expensive cases and I would definitely buy it again. No regrets at all.

    Great case

    • Written by from SAN ANTONIO

    My iPhone 5 has been in this case since purchased 6 months ago. The phone has traveled to Asia, Africa, and Europe, been dropped, been in my pocket while doing all kinds of outdoor work and still looks new. The case is very light and the edges are soft so you are hardly aware it is even in your pocket. It really does protect the phone, but without the bulk of a case like the Otter Box. I was skeptical that the case would really work, but lots of outdoor work and 75,000 miles of travel have proven it does the job!

    Made A Great Decision

    • Written by from Carpinteria

    Buying this case... I was eying it for a while. Finally decided to give it a try and I love it! Very visually appealing with my black iPhone 5. Feels like a very good fit. I'm also very happy with the balance of protection and style, it offers fantastic protection while keeping the device sleek and comfortable to handle. I highly recommend this case.

    I absolutely LOVE this case!!!

    It is the perfect combination of form and function...I love the security that it effectively protects my precious and expensive iPhone, as well as the fact that it doesn't take away from the elegance and beauty of my phone...the clear color case actually enhances and adds to the beauty of my white & silver iPhone 5...

    I am so incredibly happy that I found it...and you can only get this particular model at the online Apple store, or from one of the brick & mortar stores!

    Get this case!! You won't regret it!!!

    What I was looking for!

    • Written by from MIDLAND

    This case is amazing and exactly what I needed. After having an Otterbox for a while, I got tired of the bulk and look and wanted something to protect my iPhone 5 while retaining the sleek look of the phone. This case is perfect for my black iPhone 5 and barely adds any thickness. I have dropped it a few time and it just bounces and gently lends. The D30 technology is used in the military so you now its good. I tried the clear and the smoke colors and decided the smoke looks much better with a black phone.

    Had a cumbersome otter cover, but when visiting my local Apple store, one of the Techs showed me the Tech 21 smoke cover that had just come in to the store & we tried it on and I was sold! Outstandingly functional and simple effective design. Yup... I tested it un-intentionally soon there after a few days later from about 4+ feet to the ground and it works as advertised, not a ding, dent, scratch or anything in the cover or iPhone 5 which continues to work perfectly. Extremely easy to slip on and off the phone to wipe down & clean. Plus, it's grippy, and doesn't increase the phone's size hardly at all.

    Tech 21 D30 iPhone 5 case

    • Written by from Stratford

    The case adds to the appearance of the iPhone. I wish cases weren't necessary but I live in a reality based world where I sometimes drop my phone. It has a snug fit and works well. Buttons are a tad stiff but I prefer that to buttons that depress too easily. It feels great in your hands too. Not too hard, not too soft. I will recommend this case to friends.

    Best iPhone 5 Case I have bought

    • Written by from LARCHMONT

    I picked this case up at the Apple Retail store yesterday. By FAR the best iPhone case I have bought or seen to date. Light weight; easy to put on, nice grip, Smoky version looks amazing with white iPhone 5, seems like it will provide great front and back protection. Surprisingly fits easily in pocket without sticking.

    Very nice. Adds very little bulk

    • Written by from Westlake

    When I first purchased my phone I got an OtterBox defender. Very protective case, but adds too much bulk for daily use for my taste.

    The Impact Mesh case from Tech21 is very nice. It adds very little bulk and seems like it will provide good protection from minor mishaps. Not as slippery as carrying the phone 'naked', but almost as light. Fits extremely well.

    Impact mesh-I5

    • Written by from Atascadero

    Tech21 did a great job on this case. For a slim, yet solid feel? This is it!
    The 'mesh' is on the interior of the case. Smooth and semi rubbery on the outside.

    I just wish there were more color options.

    Best phone case I've ever owned

    • Written by from Fairfield

    I bought this on the recommendation of a sale representative ("genius"?) at the Apple Store at Grand Central in NYC. It is easily the best phone case I've ever had. Besides being attractive and affording considerable protection, it adds less bulk to the device than most other cases and seems to be highly scratch-resistant. True, no case has yet been created that does not detract in some way from the beauty of an unadorned iPhone, but this comes closer than any I've seen.

    Amazing material, looks and feels great, protects well, doesn't smudge!

    • Written by from Nashua

    I tried several cases for my iPhone 5 before choosing the Tech21 Impact Mesh. The case adds virtually no bulk or weight to the iPhone, yet provides very good protection to the corners, edges, and back. The bezel side is slightly raised so you can set the phone face down without scratching on a flat surface. The bezel edges don't extend too far into the phone face, so the case works well with full-sized screen protectors (I'm using the Tech Armor HD; forget the "case-friendly" Zagg protector, which leaves too much of your screen unprotected).

    The T30 material is remarkable. I've never seen anything like it. It's glossy smooth and translucent, yet still grippy, yet slides easily in and out of my pocket. It's very hard to scratch, and it doesn't hold fingerprints or smudges. I think it looks elegant and high-tech at the same time, and I've gotten numerous compliments on how "classy" my phone looks. The truest testament is that my wife now wants one for her phone!

    The only downside to the case is that the bottom front strip, just below the Home button, is perhaps a little too flexible and unsupported. Having said that, the design does leave the grates and ports on the bottom edge available for all manner of accessories, while the corner bumpers, back edge, and what's there on the front edge provide, I think sufficient protection. The material itself is so strong that I don't think it's really a problem.

    Highly recommended!
