    Great protection for me

    • Written by from Dallas

    I have arthritis in both hands and drop everything. My sales guy recommended this case when I got a new phone recently. It really does bounce when it hits the ground! I am buying my grandson an iPhone and he is getting this case too!!

    Not a iPhone Case fan, but this was an exception.

    • Written by from Largo

    I've had my iPhone 5S for about 8 months now, I never had a case on it because I'm one of those people who hold onto their phones constantly and the only time I put it away/down is in my pocket or on a soft surface. I am heading to New England for a few weeks and I decided that if I was going somewhere that I'd have the potential of breaking my phone, on vacation would be the place. Mind you, I hate cases, my old iPhone 4S didn't have a case until a year and half later and then the case and phone broke together. I went to Best Buy to buy this Tech21 case, I planned on getting one of those Naked Tough cases that are clear but they were out of stock. My friend has the Tech21 case and so did the man selling me this case, both of them demonstrated how durable they were by throwing them toward the hard flooring full force. Nothing happened, so I was convinced. My only worry was the sticky buttons, which in time I'll get used to pushing them harder so no worries. I also wanted a screen protector, I've read reviews on here complaining how the screen protector pops off or doesn't fit with the case. Well my recommendation is buy this iPhone case for $35, then buy Zagg InvisibleShield HD for about $25 and you're set.

    Awesome case

    • Written by from Westlake

    If I took the time to rate this product, you know it's gotta be the best phone case I've ever bought in my life. After shattering my phone, I replaced my iPhone 5 and bought this case because it was recommend to me at the apple store. A year later, and my phone is still safe and sound. I drop my it multiple times each day and not a crack. It's well worth the $30. I'll never buy another brand of phone case again.

    Amazing Case

    • Written by from West End

    Last year around October 2013 I cracked my phone for the millionth time. This was the fifth iPhone 5 I had gotten, not counting the times that I only replaced the glass. Lets keep in mind that the iPhone 5 released in Sept. 2012, meaning I got it in maybe January of 2013, and by October, I had cracked, broken, (annihilated) it more than four or five times. Well my dad had had the last of it, and he told me to buy the best case I could find. Dreading that I would have to get a bulky, expensive otter box or life proof, I went to the apple store and the guy helping me however gave me this case that was only 30 or so dollars, and told me it was the best case he had ever had. After having my phone in this case for almost 8 months now, I can honestly say its the best case you could buy. Not a single scratch or crack, and let me tell you, I drop my phone every hour, throw it, step on it, you name it. A lot of my friends have life proof cases that break easily after two months or so. It's not bulky in the slightest, and amazingly enough the small lip on the front is all it needs to keep the front glass protected. This is the longest I've gone without breaking ANY phone, let alone an iPhone. I recommend this to all of my friends and now y'all too!

    Poor design, horrible feel.

    • Written by from Seattle

    This case caused my very expensive screen protector to immediately peel off the front. The buttons have a horrible feel, and are very very difficult to press. I bought this based on all the good reviews. It looks ok, but I regret purchasing this as I now need to replace the shield. Advise to pass on this one.

    Great case

    I've had 10+ cases and this case is incredible. Literally dropped from 20 feet up and nothing happens.

    Amazing case

    • Written by from ASHLAND

    This is the best case I have ever used. Doesn't scratch the phone like some people says it does. Those people lead me to believe that they simply don't clean their phone. Keep the case clean like anything that's valuable, you'll be sorry if you don't buy this case!!

    Did not work

    • Written by from Middletown

    I bought this case based on great reviews after watching the video on the Tech 21 website. Well the first drop onto the sidewalk from 2 1/2 feet resulted in a completely shattered screen. The phone landed face down. I really do like the case but it just didn't perform as I had hoped.

    THIS CASE IS AMAZING

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I had shattered three iPhones before my current one, by carelessness or just bad luck. With this case, I have dropped my phone in every single way and on every single surface- facedown, face up, on concrete, tile, metal, sometimes knocking it so that it flies before it hits the ground. Not once has it shattered or broken- I've had heart attacks every single time because it looks like it falls in a way that should break, but the case just makes it bounce a couple of times before it comes, unharmed, to a stop. BUY THIS CASE. Your phone will never shatter.

    so far...

    • Written by from Riverdale

    I like the color and look. Not bulky slides in out of jeans (back pocket) the case is solid on all 4 sides. From the design the sides won't get damage like the iphone 4s speck case. Have not dropped it yet, since I just got my new iphone 5s (the new baby). I have always purchase speck but the material on speck breaks very fast...

    The only thing I have not gotten used to is the feel of it. It's that rubber, sticky feel to it. Going to give this case a try for a couple of months since I just purchased it.
    The buttons are hard to push but I think with time it will be just fine.

    The phone does look awesome and color too, have it in blue. It's just some getting used to. I want protection without looking like a RUBBER TIRE when I take my phone out. Plus I want to carry the phone in one of the side pockets of my pants.

    Okay case

    • Written by from Los Altos

    I was really excited when I got this case, but it's not as good as I expected. First of all, I just dropped my phone and the screen cracked while in the case. When I had my Speck case, I dropped my phone all the time and the screen never cracked. Also, it's kind of hard to press the volume buttons and lock button with the case. The good parts about the case is that it looks cool and it seemed protective until I dropped it and my entire screen shattered. :(

    Could there actually be a better case?

    • Written by from Seattle

    No.

    There could not be a better iPhone case. This thing works perfectly at protecting your phone against pretty much every stupid thing you could do to drop it.

    It also looks great, which is nice.

    Perfect mix of form and function!

    • Written by from Winter Park

    I'm a constant iPhone case buyer, always switching, swapping and forever changing my case to get the best mix of form and function. The Tech 21 case is by far the best I've found yet, and I think my search is over (for now).

    From what I've found, it offers the best protection without creating a massive bulky exterior to the sleek iPhone. I found myself either removing old cases due to the bulk or just wanting my iPhone to look like an "iPhone" and not a truck tire. The Tech 21 addresses all my case needs, as the phone fits snug, the material is light and slides out of my pocket easily, and it still maintains the sleek look.

    Overall, great case at a good price, highly recommended!

    Excellent Case -- Completely Satisfied

    • Written by from Framingham

    This case is excellent. It fits well (snug, yet easy to put on), looks great (does not look cheap, looks remarkably good on the phone, attractive colors and design), is well constructed (provides a sturdy feel with just enough bulk to make the phone comfortable to hold but not too much to take away from its sleekness, and material has a great soft, smooth feel with just enough grip), and provides great protection (D30 -- product used by military -- lined case does what it is designed to do and was accidentally put to the test once now, since purchased, leaving my phone fully intact, operable, and undamaged). I am completely satisfied with this phone case. It is by far the best one I have used/seen/tried. I first purchased the smokey grey color and have now, many months later, purchased the clear as well.

    Great case.

    • Written by from Mt. Brydges

    I've only had this case for a couple days but I love it so far.
    It is definitely nice and slim... I just upgraded to the iPhone 5s from a 4 and with the case on it's still only as thick as the iPhone 4 was without a case!

    Feels excellent and it snaps on really tight, so I don't think any dirt can get in. I've had cases in the past that small particles will get in and the case will hold them in and scratch the body. This doesn't seem to happen. I'm not fan of iPhone cases, but I will definitely be keeping this one on!! Thanks!

    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.

    Screen Protector Nightmare

    • Written by from Sugar Land

    Just wanted everyone to know that if you have a screen protector on your phone, this is not the case for you. Bought it and loved it for the first day, but then it started peeling off my invisible shield on all the edges and corners-disaster. It's a great case if you don't have a screen protector, but don't buy it if you do! It will just make you sad that you can't use it.

    Best Case I Ever Own

    • Written by from Pittsford

    I love this case! I stood in the store trying out different cases. Other cases felt like I had no control over the grip of the iPhone, and I wanted to make sure it was protected if I do drop my iphone.

    This case has the best feel and I love the grip. Also, the case itself covers the edge of the iPhone, which I do like. Make sure you get the Tech 21 Impact "Mesh" b/c there other cases did not have the feel as to this one.

    Sleek case, great casual drop protection

    • Written by from Newport News

    Recently purchased this for my 5S and have been extremely pleased thus far. The case material is quite grippy in your hand, yet slides smoothly in and out of pants pockets. The button presses are a bit firm, but doesn't require the ridiculous amount of force to depress that many other high-end protective cases possess. The ports for the mute switch, charging port and headphone jack all line up very well and have stayed that way.

    I went with the smokey color, which pairs well with the black phone. The unit remains very slim and the orange glow of the D30 material is very tame, allowing it to still look sleek and professional.

    My biggest concern when purchasing was how it would hold up to the inevitable first drop. I fumbled the phone about two days into owning it, with it landing screen side down on concrete from about four feet in the air. Not a scratch or crack could be found on the device and only the slightest of nicks was made in the case material. Overall, highly recommended.
