    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.

    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.

    I purchased this case because I was looking for a slim case that was protective. This tech21 case has blown away my expectations. The design is sleek, I get compliments everytime someone new sees my phone. The feel is great, it is not heavy and doesnt bulk up your phone. Durability? this is the most durable case I've ever had. Compared to all those incase, speck, etc this case beats all of them. It has protected my iphone NUMEROUs time, it fell out of my bag while driving a motorcycle at 45 mph and my phone was fine! nothing happened to it nor to the case. I can say this is the best case for iphones ever made.

    Falls off my car at 60 mpg, phone not a scratch

    • Written by from SHARON CENTER

    Accidentally leaving my brand new iPhone on my car and proceeded on my way while driving off with my phone still on my car!! Not knowing and having to GPS it on iCloud long story short was found about 20 feet off the side of the road, in a 55 mpg per hour and going down a big steep hill. Fell off while I was driving! Not a scratch on my phone the case took a beating but did its job and still going strong. Well done!!! Worth every penny!

    Great case... But...

    • Written by from Miami

    I love this case. It protects all the edges of the phone, which was one my concerns. Most of the cases I've seen didn't do much for the top/bottom ends which left the ends very vulnerable to scratches. I also love the material - it gives you a great grip. My ONLY complaint is how easily it starts turning blue! I'm guessing its from my jeans.

    This case is the BEST out there for iPhone 5 users.

    Great design, great quality, thin and saved my iPhone today when it fell out of my nylon running pants. The iPhone actually bounced off the pavement tonight in this case, thanks to the military grade protected corners. I picked it up and I couldn't even find a mark on the case. I was shocked.

    AWESOME purchase and I've owned about 6 different cases for various iPhone models, including bumpers. The rest are either too BIG or don't provide enough protection.

    ** BUY THIS **

    I grew tired of the chunky box cases and apprehensively bought these. Smoke for me, clear for my wife. We've been "wearing" them for about a month. Yesterday mine passed the drop and bounce test from about five feet high--hitting a steel platform and then concrete. I replaced my damaged screen protector (the steel platform had texture for traction) and all is well. I am very pleased with the fit, feel, appearance, and functionality of this case. It is perfect for anyone who wants the iPhone experience without sacrificing protection. FIVE STARS!

    Fantastic Case

    • Written by from Huntington

    Clear Case for White iPhone 32 gb. With the exception of the screen being uncovered, this is an exceptional case. I've dropped the phone once, on its edge, and the case did its job perfectly. Get a screen protector and you're gtg. If you buy a Black iPhone, be sure to go with the Smoke color, it looks like garbage on white and vice versa with a Clear case for White.

    Nice case

    • Written by from Missouri City

    After going through several cases for my iphone 5, I decided to give this one a try. I was looking for a simple, yet rugged case that didn't add too much bulk. I'm usually not too rough on my phones, but I've dropped a few. So when I bought the iphone 5, I wanted a minimalist case that would not make my phone feel like a brick.

    After reading several reviews on the Tech 21 case, I decided to pick one up. I'm pleased that I did. The case is well made and looks really nice on my phone. The buttons are a little hard to push, but very manageable. The orange ring (the "extra protection") gives the case a unique look. I bought the clear case and it looks fantastic.

    Highly recommended if you want a good looking case with some level of protection from drops. NOT good for someone who is rough on their phone.

    Finding a case that is durable, stylish, yet doesn't impede the experience of the device
    was difficult. This case protects the unit without making it look like
    a brick. And you can't beat the price. It's half as much as the otter box and life proof. Although it doesn't protect against liquid damage, the tech 21 case is perfect for the occasional dropper, and for your wallet.

    Excellent Fit and Looks Great

    • Written by from Miami

    I've never bothered with a case for any of my iPhones because I always thought they were bulky and detracted from the appearance of the iPhone itself.

    Until now. I dropped my iPhone 4S last month and cracked the back glass, so when I picked up a new iPhone 5, I changed my mind about the necessity of a case. Happily, I chose the Tech21 Impact case and I'd say its about as close to going case-less as possible, while still offering solid impact protection. As a bonus, its not at all bulky and looks pretty cool, as it doesn't completely cover the beautiful phone underneath.

    Very Nice Case

    • Written by from Joliet

    I have never liked a case. I always took it off a day or 2 after I bought it because I did not like something about it. I got this case for Christmas, I still have it on my phone. Enough said...

    My favorite case no doubt!

    • Written by from SUMMERVILLE

    I love this case! After years of using Speck Candyshells, I got tired of the thickness, rubber breaking off and ugly colors. I gave this a try and WOW! It is light, not slippery, protective, and it works with ALL adapters from Apple including the lightning adapter. I can now use my old apple accessories with this case! It also looks very stylish and Tronish with the clear and colored sides. Converted!

    Great case

    • Written by from Basking Ridge

    I have used this for the past several months and briefly used the OtterBox previously. I find that the Impact Band works just as well and is a much smaller profile and far more attractive looking. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a case for their iPhone.

    Fantastic Case!

    • Written by from Orlando

    I got this case in November with my iPhone and it has been great! I've dropped it on concrete, tile, and asphalt and the phone doesn't have a scratch. Best case I've gotten in the many years that I have owned an iPhone. I love that its not bulky at all. Only downside (which is my fault) is that if you keep it in the back pocket of your jeans it starts turning blue. Other then that its great!
