    Fantastic - one complaint but overall I love it

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I truly love this case. I dropped my phone on the ground one time and it just made a little thud sound and the phone was perfectly fine. It's a great material. My one complaint is that it is a little tough to push the lock button on the top of my iPhone. Other than that, it's perfect

    Unlike any other case!

    • Written by from oviedo

    I had been a loyal Otterbox customer for years until I found a speck case. I had a Speck for a little over a year because I loved how thin it was compared to the Otterbox. One day I was at the apple store to get a new Speck case. I asked an employee, "are there any other protective cases that protect like the speck and are thin?" The employee told me about Tech21 and how those cases work. I decided to buy one and try it out. I drop my phone more than 2x a day so I was really worried when I put the case on and realized that it was even thinner than a speck case. A few days passed without me dropping my phone (a new record for me) until one day it dropped in a hallway at school. My heart dropped, I wondered, "did that tiny case really protect? Is my phone shattered?" When I picked up my phone, it was in pristine condition. I was so happy. The impactology really does work! I finally found my case in shining armor!

    Amazing Case

    • Written by from Naperville

    I absolutely love this case. I have a black IPhone 5s and the blue case compliments the phone perfectly. I have cracked almost every product with a screen that I have had so I was nervous that I would crack my phone but this case has done a great job of protecting it! I have dropped it a few times but my phone was totally fine. Unfortunately, I recently broke the bumper piece around the camera. I think when I sat down with the case in my back pocket it snapped and fell off. I am not sure if that piece matters too much but I am thinking about getting another tech 21 case! Other than that this by far is the best case I have ever had.

    When I first bought my iPhone 5s in silver I had to get a nice sleek case to slip it on under right away for easy protection durable and no added bulk. Looks great on and have received many compliments. Thanks Apple :) Reminds me alot of the Speck Gemshell, but case has not yellowed after a couple months so far looking good and shows the back of the phone which I like. Don't really like cases that hide the apple logo and detailing in back and wanted to showcase the overall structure of this beautiful phone in a clear with orange strip case.

    Case Rocks! I have 6 Tech21 cases & Love them all!

    • Written by from WEST COLUMBIA

    Awesome case! I own around 70 cases and this is my top case for all around use. It's great with durability, fits great, etcetera. I read a review about it messing up a screen protector. IMO that individual messed up the screen protector. They should understand these cases are meant to fit exactly. So you should use caution and/or call tech21 for assistance, it doesn't matter who put the screen protector on. Someone didn't like the orange band that encompasses the edge of the case. Come on, seriously? Do a little research. Google...use it. It is the foundation of this company. D30?! Really. If you are a fishing guide, scuba diving instructor, rock climbing guide, think that you are Rambo, etcetera, then obviously you need a $400.00 case and don't expect this case to be some supernatural entity that is going to surround your phone with a magic force field. I love it. It fits great in my hand. It's not slippery but it's not sticky and hard to get out of my pocket. Being a man and generally going with neutral colors, I have clear, blue/teal and smoke colored cases. I also found one online that was in a T-Mobile branded case that was a green variation and two of band style products. Great cases. They provide great corner protection, which is the screens most vulnerable area. Great fit. Quality feel.
    I'll buy ones for my iPhone 6 when it comes out.

    • Quality overall case
    • Great corner protection
    • Aesthetically pleasing
    • Perfectly fitted for iPhone 5 & 5s
    • People compliment it. Which, even though I had nothing to do with making the case, it is a good sign.
    • Edges come up and over face which offers great protection but not obtrusively so.
    • Offers great protection without hindering the multitude of qualities my iPhone offers.

    • Not a miracle worker. Not really a con but if you need a waterproof, bulletproof, etcetera and you're a fighter pilot or work for NASA and need a case that will protect your iPhone from 1,000 G's, asteroids, gasses from Jupiter and Mars dust then you need a slightly different case. Call Tech21 they can probably make you a special order one.

    Cannot say enough about this case.

    • Written by from Monterey

    I dropped my phone many times while it was wearing this case. It withstood every.thing. The other day I was on a ten-foot ladder and I dropped my phone. It landed facedown. It was probably the most defining moment of my life thus far. When I got off the ladder and picked it up there was not even a scratch. If I were the president I would give Tech21 an award for this case.

    I've had this case for 1 month and it has saved me from two drops already. One drop on asphalt and another on concrete, both from waist high. Case is amazing. No sign of any problem. Also love the feel and grip of the case. Great purchase.

    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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!!!!!

    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.
