    Best case I have ever owned!

    • Written by from Lenexa

    So I have had this case for about 2 years now and it has by far been the best phone case I have owned. If your looking for something which doesn't add weight to your phone whilst holding it and still gives your iPhone that sleek look then this is the case for you. The amount of times I have dropped my phone it should be in pieces but this case has protected it from everything. This is the first case I've had which has lasted the same amount of time as my phone. I have recommended it to everyone I know who is looking for a strong yet lightweight case whic is perfect for everyday use and doesn't add that unecessary bulk and weight.

    This case destroys your phone

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    this is the worst case you can ever get for your phone. the case has absolutely no padding on the inside of it and if you have any gunk that gets trapped inside the case (which inevitably you'll pick up gunk from your pockets) it literally gets ground into the phone case. the aluminium housing of the phone is softer than the case and the case literally pushes any crud into the phone - if you have any sand or hardened material that gets into the case it'll destroy your phone.

    beautiful, but terrible quality control

    • Written by from Scarborough

    I bought this at a local Apple store, and had to open up 5 different boxes to find a unit that didn't have jagged, lumpy, or wavy edges. I finally did find one and bought it, but even this one has two small bumps on the back panel. Surely for this price we should be able to find a higher rate of better quality specimens...

    Doesn't protect screen

    • Written by from San Francisco

    This case only protects the sides and back of the iPhone. In videos of it protecting the phone during a fall, it bounces around and emerged unscathed, but the screen never hits the ground because, having no raised bezel on the front, the screen is totally unprotected.

    Beautiful design but it lasted one day before the corner broke.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    This case looks and feels beautiful, but it only lasted a day before a corner bent and the Kevlar fibres became frayed. This happened while simply taking it out of my pocket - not acceptable. The corner where the case rounds out to the bottom is where the Kevlar fibres are now exposed and frayed. Kevlar is a great material, just not good for a phone case in my opinion. The fit was snug but a little loose around the corners because the Kevlar flexes. Another reason why Kevlar is not good for a case. I believe something stiff should be used. If exotic materials are Evutec's focus, carbon fibre might be better suited because it is stiff. Because of this stiffness, the corner of the case might not have been damaged. This case is going back because it isn't durable enough to go in and out of my pocket.

    Incredible Case

    • Written by from Martinsville

    I hate cases. But I love this case, it's so thin and unbelievably light. I'm hoping they make a case very similar to this one for the iPhone 6.

    Love this case

    • Written by from Phoenix

    I have had Otterbox, Moshi, Apple's leather case, and others and this is by far my favorite case for everyday use. It is tactile enough to not slip out of your hand but not stick in your pocket when on the go. And it just looks cool too!!

    Soooooo nice!

    • Written by from Courtenay

    So I got this for my iPhone 5. Best case ever. I've owned SO MANY different cases and this is my favorite for the following reasons:

    1) Fits perfectly;
    2) Has nice texture (slightly rubbery on the hands but not enough to snag on pockets/pouches);
    3) I don't intend on dropping my phone but case still wraps around the corners;
    4) Slightly elevated above screen on the left and right of the phone so you can lay it down on the screen;
    5) Many other cases I've owned always got in the way of my headphone jacks (other cases wrapped around the jack way to tightly, sometimes I had to take the phone out of the case - but not with this one).

    Wiggle Room, Easily Fixed

    • Written by from Chicago

    Great case. Love the feel, the fact that you can see it is solid woven material. It did have a slight bit of wiggle room initially, which drove me crazy. I simply used some black electrical tape, on the inside of the case and taped it directly on the back, two pieces. And in each corner since after taping the back it still slid slightly up and down. Now it fits like a glove! Love it. Of course would be great if it fit like a glove out of the box but I believe the nature of the case being the woven materials is where the challenge lies.

    Fantastic case

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I prefer the minimalist approach to cases and have tried several different brands. Most have been a disappointment and either developed cracks or had coatings that scratched easily or started to peel. I checked out the Evutec Karbon S and what a breath of fresh air! Absolutely thin and light but it is tough as nails and offers good protection even for a thin case.

    I finally got a chance to try it's protection capabilities yesterday as I watched my 5s in slow motion falling towards a concrete sidewalk. Not a single dent or scratch on my phone after the impact! Scuffed some of the corners up a bit on the Karbon S but that was it. I didn't think it was possible to have any "real" protection from a case this thin but boy was I wrong.

    The case is actual carbon fibre so the colour goes right through (no coatings to peel off) and it has an ever so slightly rubberized surface that exponentially improves the grip on my 5s without adding any bulk. As previously mentioned, when my phone hit the ground the corners scuffed a bit and turned a little grey from the exposed carbon fibre (and imbedded concrete dust) but a black sharpie fixed that good as new.

    I'm so pleased with this case that I'm now patiently waiting on their new version for the iPad Mini Retina which Evutek says is coming shortly. If you appreciate the minimal approach to cases but still want some protection, this one is a no brainer. Cheers!

    Looks nice but poor fit and slippery!

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    When I first saw this case in the Apple Store I was impressed. The carbon-fiber pattern is gorgeous and the case weighs almost nothing. I normally prefer something a little more protective, but I recently bought a speaker with lightning dock and I have been on a mission to find a good minimalist case with an open bottom to allow docking. This case works great with the dock, and I'm sure the woven Kevlar fibers offer better protection than a simple poly carbonate or plastic clip-on case. Unfortunately this case has two fatal flaws...first the one I got fits rather loose. The phone can actually slide a millimeter or so up and down the case lengthwise which annoys me no end. Looking at other reviews, it seems that some fit perfectly and others are loose. Such variance should be unacceptable to a case manufacturer. I shouldn't have the "try on" several cases at the store to find one that fits. Incidentally, it fits the same on both my personal iPhone 5 as well as my work 5S. Second, while the material feels great in the hand it is extremely slippery. I'm not sure how anyone could consider it "grippy". It's smooth as silk and if I'm not gripping it tightly, it pretty much just oozes out of my fingers. Sadly, as cool as this case is it's going back.

    Great looking case. Few issues

    • Written by from Pickering

    Great looking case. Very slim and feels protective. Almost a 5/5 but many of the aftermarket accessories (apple approved) do not work with it, including the 30 pin adaptor (with cable). Disappointed to say the least. Other than hat nice looking case.

    Adds no bulk but collects dust

    • Written by from Lansdale

    This case adds no bulk to the phone; you can barely feel it on there. The phone has survived many drops that I thought would have cause damage. Where this case falls about is protection from scratches. The ends of the case are open so the phone collects nicks, and there is a small gap between the back of the phone and the inside of the case that collects all sorts of dust and particles. I clean it regularly but took it off today to find the back of the phone scratched all over, especially at the edges.

    Military Grade For The Minimalist

    • Written by from Danville

    Evutec has held up better than any case I've ever owned. I barely notice it is even in my pocket, and the few time's I've dropped it, it's saved my phone. I used other snap cases that fell off when my phone dropped in the past, but the edges on this case brace for impact while maintaining strength.

    I broke my Apple-made iPhone 5S case today and went searching for a new one. I found this at the Apple store, tried it out, and instantly was sold. It is amazingly light and thin, and provides a little bit of friction with my hand, which is exactly what I need.

    Regarding the phone moving around a little inside the case - I had this issue as well. However, I took a little bit of tape - the kind you use to keep rugs from sliding around on a hardwood floor - placed it inside, and now the phone fits perfectly inside.

    It's like it is part of the phone!

    • Written by from Chantilly

    I just bought this case today and love it! It is by far the sturdiest, sleekest, thinnest case I have ever had for any phone. It really seems like it is part of the phone and not a separate case. The iPhone fits extremely tight in the case, almost too tight. It took me a couple of times to get it out of the case the way the instructions say to do it (which is to push on the camera area on the back and kind of pull the one side) but once I did it, I again see how well designed and tough this case is. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a rugged, slim case at a good price.

    Finally someone got it right.

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    Ever since I switched to iPhone 5 i have been looking for a perfect case that doesn't double the size of the phone. I tried so many brands that worked with iPhone 4, but they were either too bulky, or not durable at all. This case seems to be a perfection of what I like in cases.

    I only had it for a week so a test of time is still due. But it seems like this case is really going to last.

    Super Slim, Stiff, Durable, Good looking

    • Written by from Santa Barbara

    Great looking. Extremely thin yet very Stiff. Unlike those cheap plastic thin cases, once it snaps on, you're gonna really need some effort to take it off. The mat finish seems durable. I've been using this for about 2 months now. Not a sign of wear. Very happy with the purchase.
