Really tough and resilient case, yet not at all bulky.
Inside the Amazon box, this item was packaged in a clear-fronted, retail style resealable plastic packet. The case was rubberised on the inside, for shock protection, in what seemed to be a two-layered fashion, with harder gold sections providing additional protection.
The rubber showing on the back is textured, to provide a good grip in your hand. There are two cutouts in the back, one for your camera / flash, and one for the Apple logo to show through. All the other ports are there, and in the right place, although the hole for the mute button is relatively small, and it’s not easy to get in there to flip it up or down. The case slips easily onto the phone, adding very little size or bulk.
This is a really slim case compared to other rugged ones I’ve seen, although it’s clearly not as slim as your basic “scratch proof” cases. All corners and sides are perfectly protected, and there’s a slight protrusion at the front to protect your screen if laid face down. The lightning cable fits perfectly through the hole in the case to the port, but it should be noted that if you use a 30-pin to lightning adapter, you’ll need to remove the case as the bottom is fully protected and the adapter just won’t fit.
I absolutely recommend this case for anyone looking to protect their phone from shocks, drops and scratches, without adding too much bulk or size.
Thanks to Coolden for providing this item for review.
