Smooth contours, grippy yet easy to pull from pocket, slick looks & D3O!!!
This is a really nice well made case. I ordered it on a whim as I prefer to not use a case with my iPhones, but the iPhone 5 is su This is a really nice well made case. 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. …

THIS CASE IS AMAZING
I had shattered three iPhones before my current one, by carelessness or just bad luck. With this case, I have dropped my phone in I had shattered three iPhones before my current one, by carelessness or just bad luck. With this case, I have dropped my phone in every single way and on every single surface- facedown, face up, on concrete, tile, metal, sometimes knocking it so that it flies before it hits the ground. Not once has it shattered or broken- I've had heart attacks every single time because it looks like it falls in a way that should break, but the case just makes it bounce a couple of times before it comes, unharmed, to a stop. BUY THIS CASE. Your phone will never shatter. …

I like the color and look. Not bulky slides in out of jeans (back pocket) the case is solid on all 4 sides. From the design t I like the color and look. Not bulky slides in out of jeans (back pocket) the case is solid on all 4 sides. From the design the sides won't get damage like the iphone 4s speck case. Have not dropped it yet, since I just got my new iphone 5s (the new baby). I have always purchase speck but the material on speck breaks very fast...
The only thing I have not gotten used to is the feel of it. It's that rubber, sticky feel to it. Going to give this case a try for a couple of months since I just purchased it.
The buttons are hard to push but I think with time it will be just fine.
The phone does look awesome and color too, have it in blue. It's just some getting used to. I want protection without looking like a RUBBER TIRE when I take my phone out. Plus I want to carry the phone in one of the side pockets of my pants. …

I was really excited when I got this case, but it's not as good as I expected. First of all, I just dropped my phone and the scree I was really excited when I got this case, but it's not as good as I expected. First of all, I just dropped my phone and the screen cracked while in the case. When I had my Speck case, I dropped my phone all the time and the screen never cracked. Also, it's kind of hard to press the volume buttons and lock button with the case. The good parts about the case is that it looks cool and it seemed protective until I dropped it and my entire screen shattered. :( …

How does this case look with the gold iPhone 5S?
- Asked by Andrew C from East Providence
- Sep 29, 2013
Gorgeous, in this color. I was shocked at how different the case looked in the package compared to Gorgeous, in this color. I was shocked at how different the case looked in the package compared to on my gold 5s. The mini dot pattern on the back (protection inside the case) is tasteful and accentuates the gold back. Over the Apple logo, the dots reflect the metallic logo, giving it dimension -- so it stands out. I almost didn't buy it, because I didn't like the orange protective banding inside the case (D3O military-grade impact protection). But on the phone, it is barely noticeable and -- to the extent that you can see it -- adds texture to the brown color. Similar to how wood grain has deeper and lighter "shades". The case adequately covers the front edge. It is raised to prevent scratching the face, while allowing adequate space for a protective shield (without lifting the edges), if you want one. The phone does not appear or feel bulky with this case. It's the closest to "no cover" + good protection that I have used; and I've used 20+ cases over the years, including high-protection grade cases like Otterbox, etc. …
