    Impact Mesh for 5s

    • Written by from Houston

    Fits great. I tried the appletosh new 5s case, leather, but was wary of the drop protection it would give. then the apple genius showed me this. The impact mesh fits very nice, little bulkier than the apple 5s leather case, but smaller in profile compared to an Otter commuter case.

    Yet to drop it, but feels well protected and the grip is fine too.

    Cons- Hope the Mesh comes in all black and none of this smokey half baked bacon effects, initially thought that this what my 70 year old dad would buy with his brown spectacles...but the feel made me go for it.

    Great case, great price

    • Written by from Portland

    I ordered this case because it seemed to have the best reviews, consistently. It seems solid and if the hype is to be believed, it will protect my phone against falls. Pros: attractive; not too bulky (I like the streamlined case-less look); easy to put on and take off; allows access to all buttons. Cons: didn't realize that the charcoal color actually has orange on it too, and I'm not a huge fan of the two-tone look; not "grippy" and feels more like smooth plastic than rubber (this is a taste thing as well); doesn't come up as high on the edges so I am worried that it won't do much for the screen, if it comes to that *knock on wood*.

    Small Fit Problem

    • Written by from San Jose

    I had the same fit issue as an earlier reviewer. It seems sometimes when I take my phone out of my pocket the top corners peel back a bit. Not all the way but enough where you need to push it back with your thumb. Other than that it is a nice case

    It might deserve that fifth star...

    • Written by from Reston

    I love this case. It's sleek and slips into my purse without a wrestle while also providing just the right amount of grip to stay in my hand and still reach all the phone's features. I went to the apple store seeking a difference case altogether (one with a [superficial] design and color that I fell in love with online). But when I compared the two, this one seemed it would be the most prudent choice given its [amazing, tried and true] impact-absorbing feature (why purchase a sturdy case if it won't actually protect your phone?). At first I didn't like the color at all, and, in full disclosure, since this purchase was for my first smart phone / iPhone 5, I wasn’t happy about feeling the need to purchase a case since part of this new fancy phone experience was that so much could be packed into something so inherently sleek, but now I really love how it looks too. So, why not five stars? I doubt there’s a case out there that would receive a fifth star as I am suspicious that the extra casing around the microphone area disturbs voice clarity (if I determine otherwise and the option is available, I will revise this review). More about me: I’ve owned the phone for about two months, and I’ve owned the case for about 6 weeks.

    Cool Case!

    • Written by from Mumbai

    I bought this case 2 months back, it has a real good fell to it.
    Only you have to keep cleaning it a little bit since there are chances it becomes a little slippery with sweat etc...
    Besides that it a super buy!

    Interesting Case

    • Written by from MOHAVE VALLEY

    The case seem well done and has a nice feel with minimal bulk. The only thing I wonder is if the area at the bottom of the phone will hold up and not tear. The material is thin and seems a bit stretchy. All in all though, a nice case.

    Love the color not so much the bulk

    • Written by from COLUMBUS

    I like my iphone cases to be as sleak and sexy as possible, at first I thought I had found the right one with this tech21 case. After about 2 weeks handling it and looking at I decided that the d30 material around the bumper of the case although is for better protection of the iPhone, it does take away from the compact size of the phone itself.
    Never the less dont regret buying this case just wish the bumper was a bit less bukly. Other than that the rubber feel is great for grip and case itself looks very sexy.

    Love the case!!

    • Written by from GRAND FORKS

    I love the case, just wish it was the Impact band and not the Impact Shell. The difference between between the Impact Shell and the Impact Band, it the band has a nice clear backing so you can show off the beautiful back. So I think Apple should also offer that, cause if it would I would love the case 100%. I spent the money for this beautiful phone and lost to show it off.
