The Tech21 Impact Protection case with D3O provides a barrier between your iPhone 5 and everyday accidents. If you drop your iPhone in this case, the molecules within D3O lock together upon impact, absorbing the energy and dispersing it away from the iPhone to create an added layer of durability.
Combined with a sleek and minimalistic design, the Impact Band covers the most important sides of your iPhone 5. In particular, it encases the corners to provide a secure fit and feel. Yet it still gives you access to all ports and function buttons.
- Fully Integrated case with D3O military-grade impact protection material
- Band design for sleek and minimalistic style
- Encases all sides of the iPhone 5 to provide a secure fit and feel
- Full access to all ports and function buttons

Great protection and doesn't hide phone's beauty!
I am very happy with the Tech21 Impact Band case for my new iPhone 5. I've had iPhones for the past 5 years and have used many cas I am very happy with the Tech21 Impact Band case for my new iPhone 5. I've had iPhones for the past 5 years and have used many cases/brands. Speck and Otterbox have been my consistent favorite until now.
I like that the Impact Band lips over the screen edge (like the Speck cases), so if you drop your phone screen side down, it's should be protected. Band fits secure and once on properly, all the buttons work as expected.
You can use band as a 'bumper' or a full case, (the clear back piece can be separated/removed). I have the clear back on mine so the back of my phone doesn't get scratched. My favorite thing about this case is that you get to see the beauty of the phone and it's protected!
As someone who's purchased many many cases through the past 5 years, I am happy to give 5 stars to Tech21 Impact Band Case for iPhone 5.
And by the way, I probably would have never purchased this brand had it not been sold at the Apple Store. I'm glad I gave it a chance. You should too. …

Great protective minimalistic case for the iPhone

The case features a special D30 material that hardens when dropped to protect the phone and say that this can make the case up to 21% better than the otter box. The case can be used as a bumper or a real case by putting the included plastic cover into the case before installing it. The case has good build quality and comes in a very nice package. I have dropped my iPhone 5 a couple of times in this case and nothing has happened. The buttons are easy to press and all of the ports are easily accessible.
Overall a wonderful iPhone 5 case. …

Pretty but not functional
I loved the case in the box, but then realized that the band and the clear backing are two different pieces. Aside from being dif I loved the case in the box, but then realized that the band and the clear backing are two different pieces. Aside from being difficult to snap on to the phone, the back scratched as soon as I tried to slide my phone into the case. Once the case was on, it looked bulky and made the top power button and +/- buttons difficult to push. I would not recommend this case. …

I love this case but...
I absolutely love this case. I have had it for about 9 months now, in hot pink. The hot pink looks awesome with my gold iPhone 5S. I absolutely love this case. I have had it for about 9 months now, in hot pink. The hot pink looks awesome with my gold iPhone 5S. The design makes it relatively thin and aesthetically pleasing in addition to being very protective. I have dropped my phone more times than I can count, and this band has saved it. It is extremely durable and keeps the phone safe.
I moved from at Otter Box to this case, because I was sick of always choosing functionality and durability over style and aesthetics.
I do have two complaints though:
1. I am on the website today, as I need to purchase a new one. In almost 10 months, the color has faded so drastically that it no longer looks as awesome as it once did, and is now very dull dark pink and looks somewhat like a dirty eraser.
2. The plastic cover that protects the back of the phone is a seperate piece and scratches quite easily.
So, in order to keep the aesthetics of the case and phone, I have to buy a new one after a lot of wear and tear. …
