Best case ever!
After owning many bulky Otterbox brand cases, I was looking for something that would survive drops, look cool, and not take up muc After owning many bulky Otterbox brand cases, I was looking for something that would survive drops, look cool, and not take up much space. This case is it! If you check out the website on D30 and Tech21's research that goes behind these cases, you will understand why they work. I can actually feel at peace in dropping my iPhone 5 because it just bounces and lands gently without any damage! I got the blue color and it is slim, attractive, and gets lots of attention. You cannot go wrong with this case. I do recommend purchasing a Zagg brand case-friendly screen protector because its hard to use normal cut protectors with this case as they will bubble up when the material of the case flexes. …

Makes the Case
This is my 2nd Tech21 Impact Mesh case. I had a clear one, which I loved till it yellowed and I couldn't stand to look at it anym This is my 2nd Tech21 Impact Mesh case. I had a clear one, which I loved till it yellowed and I couldn't stand to look at it anymore. I'll keep it as a backup though, since it saved my phone from a drop on a concrete floor more than once! That's the beauty of these cases: they look cool, make your phone easier to hold (bare aluminum is slippery!) and actually bounce when you drop them on hard surfaces. This case is a very good investment. Also, the blue color, aside from being pretty and cool looking, has an improved design over the clear and smoke color Tech21 cases. There are individual cutouts for the speaker/headphone jack, lightning connector, and second speaker. That's an improvement over the slightly flimsy clear version.
Great case! …

The case looks very good. I have gotten many complements about it. It is not too slippery and feels good in the hand.
The one bad The case looks very good. I have gotten many complements about it. It is not too slippery and feels good in the hand.
The one bad thing about the case is the fit. The one I have is very loose in the upper right hand corner. It will pull off of that corner when taking my iPhone 5 out of my pocket. This in turn results in the top of the case coming loose.
Unsure if I got a bad case that did not cool correctly after it was molded, but cannot risk my iPhone 5 coming out of the case.
I will be returning the case. …

I bought this case in pink at the Apple Store when I picked up my new iPhone 5s--to use until my Ballistic case arrived in the mai I bought this case in pink at the Apple Store when I picked up my new iPhone 5s--to use until my Ballistic case arrived in the mail. I thought it would be flimsy, but this case is great and has some great protection all the way around the sides. It also slides in and out of my purse pocket easily. My Ballistic case arrived and I still haven't used it, I like this one so much. The color is pretty and you can see the Apple logo with it on. Mine fits great (and I paid full price at the Apple Store)--I have heard that there are lots of low priced knock off cases out there....maybe that is why one reviewer had trouble with the fit. I have dropped my phone a few times onto a ceramic floor and it has stayed protected=) …

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. …
