    I went into a brick-and-mortar Apple store and it was incredibly busy there. Frustrated with all the commotion I bought 5 differe I went into a brick-and-mortar Apple store and it was incredibly busy there. Frustrated with all the commotion I bought 5 different cases to bring home, analyze, and return the undesired. After eliminating a few other cases this case is one of the final two.

    Pros:
    *The case seems to be of VERY good quality.
    *Its most notable feature is that is seems to be considerably more protective of the phone than any other case.
    *It snaps on very well. More tightly than any I've ever seen.
    *It does provide clearance between the face of the phone and a flat surface it the phone were set face down. This helps to ensure the face of the phone doesn't get scratched when set down, face side down.

    Cons:
    *The very feature that makes the case so incredible has an inherent downside -- bulk. It is a bid larger than the other cases. To those as particular as myself, this case is 0.05" (~1/32") thicker than the other cases (I measured it myself).
    *This case does hide the backside of the iPhone 5

    Conclusion:
    If you don't like broken cases and a couple extra hundredths-of-an-inch doesn't bother you, I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND this case.

    This is a great case, very solid and protective. Allows for great sound through the iPhone speakers if you use those, and the butt This is a great case, very solid and protective. Allows for great sound through the iPhone speakers if you use those, and the buttons are easy to push with the rubber casings.

    The case does show fingerprints on the black and scratches easily, but better the case than the phone. Also, the case won't let the 30-pin to Lightning adapter to connect, so be prepared to go Lightning all the way.

    Suggestion: Get the case for excellent protection, get it in white, and go Lightning.

I usually keep my phone in a front pocket of shorts or jeans. The case should be able to stand up to that type of wear and tear for more than a few weeks.

    After Two Months: Front of case continued to fray, pulled off a few strands of rubber that were getting annoying.

    Three months later: Part of the case by the silence switch broke off (at this point, still hadn't dropped the phone).

    Four months: Part of the case by by the power input broke off.

    Five months: Part of the case between the audio jack and power input broke.

    Snug fit. Great protection from most incidents. Maintains sleek design of the phone. Slips well into and out of pockets. Provides Snug fit. Great protection from most incidents. Maintains sleek design of the phone. Slips well into and out of pockets. Provides a light, appropriate grip weather in hand or pocket. Expected Speck quality. I highly recommend it. I carry 2 5s' at all times as a paramedic in a very busy, very dangerous city. Great stuff!

  • Doesn't last, expensive and didn't protect screen against shatter

    This product started to fall apart around ~1 year of ownership. The plastic pieces around the headphone jack and power cracked off This product started to fall apart around ~1 year of ownership. The plastic pieces around the headphone jack and power cracked off, the rubber gasket starts to catch, and now, as of today, my $39.99 was for nothing. I was running, tripped and my screen shattered despite being in the case. I realize that a case only helps so much and large drops may still result in screen shatter, but think that the case should have protected in this particular situation.

    Had it not fallen apart, I think it would have protected more.
