Smooth contours, grippy yet easy to pull from pocket, slick looks & D3O!!!

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. …

After shattering If I took the time to rate this product, you know it's gotta be the best phone case I've ever bought in my life. After shattering my phone, I replaced my iPhone 5 and bought this case because it was recommend to me at the apple store. A year later, and my phone is still safe and sound. I drop my it multiple times each day and not a crack. It's well worth the $30. I'll never buy another brand of phone case again. …

Last year around October 2013 I cracked my phone for the millionth time. This was the fifth iPhone 5 I had gotten, not counting th Last year around October 2013 I cracked my phone for the millionth time. This was the fifth iPhone 5 I had gotten, not counting the times that I only replaced the glass. Lets keep in mind that the iPhone 5 released in Sept. 2012, meaning I got it in maybe January of 2013, and by October, I had cracked, broken, (annihilated) it more than four or five times. Well my dad had had the last of it, and he told me to buy the best case I could find. Dreading that I would have to get a bulky, expensive otter box or life proof, I went to the apple store and the guy helping me however gave me this case that was only 30 or so dollars, and told me it was the best case he had ever had. After having my phone in this case for almost 8 months now, I can honestly say its the best case you could buy. Not a single scratch or crack, and let me tell you, I drop my phone every hour, throw it, step on it, you name it. A lot of my friends have life proof cases that break easily after two months or so. It's not bulky in the slightest, and amazingly enough the small lip on the front is all it needs to keep the front glass protected. This is the longest I've gone without breaking ANY phone, let alone an iPhone. I recommend this to all of my friends and now y'all too! …

does this protect the front and back of the iphone 5s from drops
- Asked by Lupe Y from Winston Salem

Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than the back. It has a raised bevel.
I had this case on my phone, and it fell from a height of about two-three feet, square on its back, onto a hardwood floor. It really wasn't a long hard fall at all, but a connector inside became partially dislodged, and only about a third of the touch screen worked. Also, the screen displayed weird lines and was distorted as a result of the fall.
I love this case, but buyer beware, if your phone falls flat on it's back, it's likely to get damaged. Apple DID cover this for me (thankfully) under Applecare, but I can't guarantee you'll be as lucky. I have had many drops before and after that incident, and never had any other issues.
The sides of this case are awesome, and make the case bounce like a bouncy ball when struck on it's side. Definitely does a good job dispersing the energy of a hard drop on a corner. Despite the one time it didn't save my phone, (I'm not sure what case could have) I love it. …
