    Very minimal, good protection, rather pricey, doesn't fit all accessories

    • Written by from Mountain View

    Lightweight, very minimal, and great fit on my 5s. Provides all the protection I was looking for in a product like this. Seems to have enough durable flex in the material to prevent the cracking I've found in other similar products. Rather expensive for what it is though.

    Unfortunately there is a little raised ridge on the bottom rear edge, which fits fine with the Apple Lightning cable, but doesn't fit with the Apple 30-pin to Lightning adapter. At this price point I don't like getting out the file set to make it fit with factory Apple accessories. Bad job, Evutec, with a totally unnecessary feature.

    Almost worth it!

    I agree with some other reviews here. The top right part by the sleep button has a sharp edge to it. The interior part of the case doesn't quite line up with the outer part. The other three corners line up fine.

    One thing that nobody else has written about is what bothers me the most. As you're looking at the face of the phone, the top and bottom middle parts of the rubber pucker out just a touch. In other words, along the top and the bottom of the phone, as you're looking at it face on, the top part goes up a touch, and the bottom part goes down a touch. I wish it were square. It's very minor, but it does bother me. I wonder if dirt will get in there and then scratch as it flexes in and out of place.

    Another thing that bothers me is how sensitive the top sleep button is. You just barely tap the rubber part that covers that button and your phone turns on or off. I've done it several times in last 24 hours that I've owned the case.

    I love how it feels. I love how it looks (although it's not square). Protection and style go well together with this case. I prefer no case, but this is the next best thing.

    Not quite what I hoped

    Overall, it's a good case, but not a great case. First, the Kevlar doesn't feel as tough as its reputation. There is more flex and bend in the Kevlar shell than I expected. Second, the fit of the Kevlar is not great. For $50, and considering Apple's stringent standards for store products, I expected a flawless, pristine fit. But the Kevlar shell does not mate up perfectly with the rubber insert on the top-right side. I'll return it tomorrow and see if I can find one with a closer to perfect fit.

    Doesn't Work with Lightening to 30-pin Adapter

    • Written by from Concord

    This is a good case EXCEPT the fact that the opening for the plug will only fit with the Lightening cable when the case is on. I had so many old USB's from previous apple products and bought a few adapters and every time i try to use the Adapter i have to take off the case (which isnt very easy) just to plug in my phone. Kind of Annoying..... But overall a decent case
