This case feels strong and well constructed. The texture feels nice in the hand and the inside is soft, like the inside of a camera case. The value for money is excellent and whilst I have not yet dropped it, it appears that it would provide adequate protection from being dropped. Of course, it's not a Samsonite or Kevlar so you can't expect miracles but for someone as clumsy as me, it is ideal. I have since customised mine with a vinyl sticker which due to the strange combination of smoothness and texture, has slid slightly out of position but that is in no way the fault of the case and more a problem with the adhesive of the sticker. All in all, I'm very please with this case especially when a similar case can set you back over £10.
