    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!!!!!

    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.

    Very good! But yellowing plastic.

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I bought this case because I wanted something that looked unique and protected the phone without adding bulk. This case is very good and does everything that it's supposed to. I've dropped my phone a few times with the case on and not a scratch has appeared on my phone. The orange siding and the design is very attractive.

    Only complaints are that the buttons are a little too stiff in my opinion. Some people say that they are easy to push and are perfect, but I find them a little on the stiff side. Another thing is that the clear plastic yellows very quickly. It's not very noticeable on the back but on the side you can definitely see the yellow in the plastic. And if you compare it to a new one, then it becomes very clear that the plastic has acquired a yellow tint.

    But functionally wise, this case is excellent and I would recommend it. Perhaps try the darker version of the case if the yellowing aspect of the plastic deters you.

    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.

    Sleep button wore out

    • Written by from Porters Lake

    Loved this case, still do...but after only 5 months, I have to press the sleep button 3 or 4 times to click the phone off :(. Works fine with the case off, I guess it has compressed too much, and now is not very effective. A lot of money for a case that wears out...

    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.

    Great Case Except 1 thing

    • Written by from Ashland

    I had boughten two of these one for me and the wife we loved the except the plastic clear backing gets very nasty very easily. The quality of it felt very cheap not the case just the clear back protector could have been a bit more to it all in all a good case. If they can improve this clear backing I would give 5 stars.

    Great case

    • Written by from Glendale

    My case does not have the dot pattern on the back, it is clear and it has scratched up quite a bit, it even scratched when I initially put it on the phone. However, I'd rather the inexpensive plastic piece on the back scratch, instead of the phone.

    I love their cases. I won a couple directly from Tech21 for my iPhone 4 and so when I got my iPhone 5 and the case was available, I picked it up from their website and have not used another case since (other than my mophie for long days).

    I've dropped the phone multiple times and no damages at all. Love, love, love their products and their customer service. So glad they are now in Apple stores and available 'across the pond'.

    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.

    Great protection; Not bulky.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I hesitated to buy due to adding thickness to the iPhone body, but it's more sleek than you think. Phone still feels thin and light. This case saved my phone a couple times from shattering. I hardly drop my iPhones and often go without a case, but it fell face flat and hard; I will now always use this case! Doesn't hurt the phone; Haven't seen scratches on the phone body after 3 months use. The colors are bright and on trend. I definitely recommend this case for protection and minimum bulk. Great customer service is a plus. I am rating 4/5 stars because the clear was yellowing pretty quickly, but Tech21 is graciously letting me exchange for the pink. I think I had a faulty case because Apple employees had not seen that happen prior to me bringing it in.

    It's pretty bad

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    I mean it protects tour iphone really well but when your putting your iphone in the case it scratches the back really easily... I took the case off once and the boer part of the case doesn't grip the sides it just slips around... I'll return it for another case

    buttons worthless

    • Written by from Ludington

    I bought this bumper with the new IPhone 5, and after installing it, found that the sleep button and audio up/down buttons are very hard to push in to change the audio or sleep mode. It was installed at the Apple store, so it is on right, but the buttons are extremely frustrating. Will be looking for a new bumper soon.

    Great protection but with some flaws

    • Written by from Hayward

    This is a great case for those who want adequate protection for the iPhone 5, without sacrificing the bulky features such as those from Otterbox, Lifeproof, and Griffin.

    Rather than writing a descriptive paragraph of what I liked and disliked about this product, I have decided to provide a list of the pros and cons

    Great protection for edges/corners
    Great design (have been receiving compliments ever since I bought this case)
    Thin and sleek
    Fairly easy to put on

    Slippery feel (not a good idea for people with greasy hands)
    Flexible TPU shell (the sides are prone to stretch out)
    No dust/dirt protection
    Optimum camera lens cut-out (the cut out is a bit large in proportional to the back of the iPhone and does not offer protection at this area)
    Fit (at times, the iPhone seems a bit wobbly)

    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 **
