    Fantastic case and great protection

    • Written by from Silverton

    I bought this case as a replacement for an Otterbox Commuter case. I keep my phone in my pocket and yes, it does take a dive now and then. On two occasions the Otterbox definitely protected the phone, but in the process, broke a thin tab on the bottom corner. It was easily replaced both times, but what a pain in the rear.
    I bought the Tech 21 case with an ArmorSuit case friendly screen protector and what a difference. It has protected the phone from a couple substantial falls without an issue and is so much easier to remove when needed. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

    Great Case .... Perfect Fit and Feel

    • Written by from Aurora

    This case adds has a very nice feel .... And fits nicely into my Levi 517 Pocket and makes it easy to pull out of pocket .....

    With my old slim design case, it had a slippery feel and I always was worried about the iPhone slipping out if my hand, as it did on a couple occasions but with this case I have no fears .....

    Showed off my case to a couple friends and actually loaned overnight (case comes off / on easy) and both ordered one ....

    Highly recommend for anyone looking for a non-bulky but protective case .....

    Oh yea, while I love Apple I did shop around and actually found the best deal was at Apple!

    Great purchase!

    • Written by from Brockton

    I was really skeptical at first about buying this case, as I have always sworn by Otterbox. I bought it and haven't been happier. It protects the phone really well and it keeps the phone lightweight. I put a really great quality screen protector on it to cover the front. I would definitely buy it again.

    Best case I've ever used

    • Written by from Evanston

    My wife and I both have this case and love it. I've avoided any kind of cases for years because I never found one that was unobtrusive enough. This one is perfect. You have to push the volume buttons slightly harder than without a case, but it's no problem.

    There're two versions of this case!

    • Written by from Volcano

    After extensive research, I'd decided this was THE case for my iPhone. The product description at the online Apple Store did not specify whether there was one or three port openings. I want the latter, and had seen it in a few review videos. It fits the phone well, has a really nice feel, and gives me a sense of drop security. But the edge at the bottom is too flimsy. I'm sending it back and thankful for Apple's return policy. I wonder how long I should wait for the single-opening, older version to sell out before ordering again. It would be nice if there was an option to order with or with dock capability.

    Tech21 Impact Mesh Case for iPhone 5

    • Written by from Alexander

    I'm not happy at all with this case. I purchased it for my son on his new 5s upgrade and he dropped his phone, and it is now cracked, yeah the new 5s is now cracked. I really depended on the support it stated it would provide, but it was failed this time.

    I have tried them all and this one is perfect. First of all it protects without bulk and you can access all your ports!!! It proved it was worth the price when I dropped twice in one day on cement and no scratch or crack to my iphone 5 or the case. I love the variety of colors and that my phone does not weigh a pound and a half. Try it for yourself. My search of the perfect case for me is over!!

    I've owned many iPhone cases, most were decent but this is perfect.
    This case makes me feel that my iPhone is very secure without a lot of bulk. There are times that I wanted to use my iPhone without a case but when using the Tech21 case I don't have that feeling, GREAT JOB TECH21!

    This case is a very good case. It protects the iphone very well covering the the buttons but doesn't make it hard for me to push the buttons. The case is very slim but it is built very well. I would definitely recommend this case to anyone who wants a thin but very protective case.

    Very light and minimal!

    • Written by from Hamilton

    I was looking for a very minimal looking case for my iPhone 5. The Tech21 Impact Mesh Case for iPhone 5 was my choice. Not only does it add protection in case of a fall, it doesn't add any bulk to the phone or look of the phone. You can grip the phone with ease. Never does it feel as if it's going to slip out of your hand. Why I feel this is a superior case over the Tech21 Impact Band Case ? Less bulkier, one piece fit with the mesh. The impact is a two piece application. Also the mesh backing is going to show less scuff marks then the impact band case backing which is clear. If showing off the back apple logo is important to you? Go with the impact band, if not. The mesh still shows a hint of the logo through the mesh backing depending on the color of your phone and case color you get.

    So, if you want a minimal snug fitting, light feeling one piece case that's excellent to grip?
    This is the case to get. Highly recommend it.

    Clear case turns blue each time

    • Written by from Chicago

    I am at my 3rd case , the clear one with orange . I love the case but a month or two after i purchased them they all started to get bluish. They looked like ink is being injected into them .
    I do not put it in the jeans pocket , nor in a bluish pouch . I have no clue what triggers this sort of chemical imbalance and the color change . I hate hard cases and i do not have other options for soft ones , plus i like the tech behind it but i do not lik ethat i am into my thrid one and each one of them turned blue .

    This case is awesome. It's super thin, durable, and the best case on the market for the price and protection. I previously owned a kate spade case for my iphone5, but it chipped every time I dropped my phone and wasn't very sturdy. The look of this case is simple and clean= Perfection!

    Bought this case for my iPhone 5 and I have to say that it is amazing! Hardly adds any extra mass to the phone which is a huge plus considering I'm not a fan of bulky cases. And I've managed to drop it on concrete from roughly 4 feet off the ground (a few times) and not even a scratch on the case. Bottom line is this case is perfect!!!!!! Worth every single penny. Sleek and does an amazing job protecting the phone!!!!!

    Clear vs colored mesh cases

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Noticed in the store today that the clear version has a single large cutout on the bottom for headphone, lightning, and speaker openings. The colored versions have three separate cutouts. There are pros and cons with each, but concern about breaking the flimsy thin unsupported span of molded silicone along the front edge of the clear version seemed to outweigh the added port obstructions that the additional two spans of silicone cause on the colored versions. We opted for colored versions, as a result. Though aesthetically, the clear one was my wife's first choice.

    Our first annoyance was the added structure prevents attaching the 30-pin-to-lightning adaptor. Oh well. No case is perfect, but we're overall very happy with the look, hand-feel, and protection these offer.

    Absolutely perfect!

    • Written by from Kansas City

    The case does what its supposed to - protects against falls and keeps your phone secure! However, I did find that after a month, the back of the case collected lots of scratches somehow but the scratches never went through inside. Although the case did protect the phone, the scratches made it look less appealing. Either way, it's still an excellent case for a great price!

    This case is fantastic. It covers all impact areas and does an amazing job absorbing shock. I've dropped my phone on various surfaces (hardwood, marble and ceramic tiles, asphalt, and concrete) and my phone has suffered no visible physical dage and no signs of internal/performance issues. Great job on this design.

    Very good! But yellowing plastic.

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I bought this case because I wanted something that looked unique and protected the phone without adding bulk. This case is very good and does everything that it's supposed to. I've dropped my phone a few times with the case on and not a scratch has appeared on my phone. The orange siding and the design is very attractive.

    Only complaints are that the buttons are a little too stiff in my opinion. Some people say that they are easy to push and are perfect, but I find them a little on the stiff side. Another thing is that the clear plastic yellows very quickly. It's not very noticeable on the back but on the side you can definitely see the yellow in the plastic. And if you compare it to a new one, then it becomes very clear that the plastic has acquired a yellow tint.

    But functionally wise, this case is excellent and I would recommend it. Perhaps try the darker version of the case if the yellowing aspect of the plastic deters you.

    Best iPhone 5 case

    • Written by from Glendale

    The impact mesh from tech 21 is terrific.
    I regularly drop my phone and this case has been a life saver.
    They could do a version that doesn't show the orange D30 material as prominently.
    Best investment for your hard earned dollar.
