Style Name:5S| Colour Name:Tough - Black|Verified Purchase
This is the second case I've bought for the iPhone 5 following my recent purchase of the Snugg iPhone 5 Case / The New iPhone Case - Snugg Squared_ Skinny Fit Protective Case Cover- Superior Quality, Non Slip Material, High Protective, Lightweight Case - Lifetime Guarantee (Black) - for Apple iPhone 5/The New iPhone - From Snugg, The Creato..., which I found to be a very poor product.

The Case Mate comes in two parts, the first is a rubber bumper that fits snugly (no pun intended) around the edges of the phone. There are protective 'bumps' for the power button at the top of the phone and the volume controls, and you don't require any extra force to operate those buttons with the bumper on. There are openings for the silent switch, audio jack and lightening power cable, and an opening on the rear of the case for the camera. Once you've put the bumper on, the phone+bumper slot neatly into a hard protective case, which provides solid protection to the rear and the sides of the phone. The case+bumper combo means that there is a small raised ridge around the front of the phone, which will come in handy in protecting the screen when placed face-down on a surface. It takes less than two minutes to take the case out of the box and set up on your phone.

I disagree with the reviewer who has said this case adds too much bulk and weight to the phone - most decent cases will add some bulk and a little weight. In this instance, I would say the bulk/weight issue is minimal and are far out-weighed by the protection the case offers. We're talking a few grams of extra weight and an extra couple of mm of "bulk". As for the argument the case is slippery, well it's not as slippery as the phone on its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny 23 Jan 2014
By Jwls
Style Name:5S| Colour Name:Tough Naked-Clear|Verified Purchase
i gave it five stars be cause it looks nice, protects my phone, fits well, has stood the test of time. I bought the white one first but it quickly got stained the clear one has remained clear. I did a lot of research before I bought and it paid off

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough 30 July 2013
Style Name:5S| Colour Name:Tough - Black|Verified Purchase
Brilliant - probably the best case on the market - and I know cos I've had a few!! Comes in two parts, a rubber bumper, which then slots firmly into the rigid case. Fits like a dream, and my iphone is now cosy and protected from damage!! The only slight downside is that converters from 30 pin to lightening tend to not fit into the gap, so you need to remove the case for charging on anything but a lightening lead. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars A good case 14 Jun 2013
By Niall
Style Name:5S|Colour Name:Tough Naked-Clear Black
This is a sturdy case with two separate parts, a rubber surround to cover the edges, sides and buttons, and a plastic case for the back and sides. The rubber surround should also protect the screen from a drop. it feels good to hold because it's not too thick, but also feels as if it offers a lot of protection. I've always been happy with case mate cases, as I have used for previous phones. This case is definitely worth the money

Appears to protect the phone well without compromising the way the phone looks. Slimline and practical. I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good low cost case. 1 Jun 2014
Style Name:5S| Colour Name:Tough - Black|Verified Purchase
Al described, good fit and look. Comments about not being able to press buttons are somewhat true but what do you expect? Use a finger nail. I would especially call out the two piece design which really helps with fit and protection. I has cheaper similar cases for a 4a before and they have sagged and become misshapen with time. This one won't.
