Product Description

Product Description

Your phone deserves the best protection and Tech21's Impact Band case is up to the job. The band sits around the body of your phone offering solid protection that is 'Impactology' approved, thanks to obsessive testing, researching and development. The Imp[act Band makes sure that when you accidently drop your phone it stays in one piece, panic over.

Tech 21's cases are fully fully integrated with D3O, a patented protective material that combines impact protection and high performance shock absorption to protect your electronic device. D3O is a revolutionary technology used by the Ministry of Defence and US Special Forces, as well as in 'impact' sports such as motorcycling and skiing. The unique structure protects your investment without compromising the functionality and style of your device.

What is D3O?.....D3O is a patented protective material that combines enhanced chemistry with product engineering to produce high performance shock absorption and impact protections solutions. In its' raw state, the D3O material flows freely when moved slowly, but on shock, locks together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to its flexible state. This, combined with product engineering and enhanced chemistry, results in a number of high performance impact protective solutions.

How it works.....The functionality of the raw material originates from the synergistic effects of the polymer based dilatants. Energy is distributed throughout the synthetic elastomeric polymer and the enhanced chemistry continues to distribute energy on throughout the matrix, significantly reducing the effect of impact.

Put simply, when the D3O material is impacted, it acts like a net, reducing and spreading the force over a larger area, minimising the risk of injury or equipment damage.

I've been using quite a few cases for my iPhone 5s, but this one is the very best so far. I found it in the Apple Store, so it's approved by Apple. The orange/brown band protect all kinds of shocks from dropping it, and it's width is protects all parts of the iPhone, so if you drop it on a flat surface your iPhone will be completely safe, as the band will absorb the shock. The back of the phone is also protected with a transparent plastic, but this part could get scratched by a general use of the phone. So, if you drop the phone on a sharp areas, such as on a rock with sharp edges in a rocky mountain, and if the shap bit hits the phone screen, for example, it could still damage it. So as well as this case I have a separate screen protector (either a film or a glass one) to protect the screen.

You can connect all the cables to the iPhone with ths case on and can adjust the volume, the speakers and the cameras work fine, and the main round button of couse, also the grip is very good with this special material (brown bits) so it will help you not drop it easily.

It's slightly costly, but believe me, the cheap ones I used previously were really cheap in quality, but this one is really impressive, and I feel a lot more confident with this new case. I heard this material was used by military in some countries too.

The only minor problem for me is that there were only two colours when I bought it, i.e. orange or brown, and I would have liked something blue, but this is not a major issue.

Hope this helps.

My brand new iphone 5 needed a case, and whilst I'm not a fan of taking something beautifully engineered and covering it in cheap plastic, I do want to keep it safe. I went for this case as it looked unusual in the pics, and the idea of the plastic absorbing the shock etc and keeping my phone safe inside does appeal. Not the cheapest by any means, but £20 to protect something worth over £500 isn't too shocking.
When it arrived I was initially disappointed! The clear bumper has a bright orange strip running through it, and the bumper it's self is quite 'thick'. The cut away for the switch is fine (though I could see it being a problem if my fingers were somewhat more chunky) but the buttons for the volume and the on off switch on the top are quite hard to press, needing a few extra pounds of pressure more that is normally needed. It just looked a bit garish and excessive surrounding my white iphone 5, certainly not the wafer thin surrounding I have seen on most peoples new iphone's.
I also added the clear back plate that comes with it, as without this on there the bumper felt like it was too large and moved about, with the back plate it does fit rather well.

So I left it on the side and come back to it a touch later. This is when my opinion started to change, and it looked better than when I first put it on. Later still, and after having used the phone for a while, it appeared that it was growing on me, and my initial disappointment was changing. I now rather like my over excessive clear and orange surround, all the while feeling secure that the phone is safe if I drop it (unless it's screen down on a stony pavement of course!). The back plate is a good idea, it keeps that aluminium backing from scratching but it can still be seen.

First the good bits. I use the phone at work and the case makes it easier to hold and less slippery. I can also put it on the dash of the van and it won't slide around. I live by the coast so it's good for the beach as there is a lip round the edge that stops sand getting in and scuffing the edges of the phone. Every other case I've had lets a few grains in that cause nasty scratching. It adds bulk but I think the phone is too narrow anyway. Nice tight fit to the phone

The negatives. Maybe I'm outside too much but like all covers there is no uv protection. After a few weeks they all, including this one get a yellow/orange tinge to them which make them look shabby. The bottom of the phone is left open and the only protection is a thin band across the edges of the phone (as opposed to cut outs for the port, speakers etc). Over time this stretches slightly and feels like its about to break. The backplate is very cheap. The band feels and is a premium product but the plate feels like its from a different maker and scratches very very easily, better that than the phone but it would be nice to be able to buy back plates.

Overall, I would recommend getting this case, especially the amazon price. Apple being apple are charging £35 for it which is a rip off. Apple ripping people off?? Unique looks but good protection and make the phone easier to handle in the cold etc. Just a couple of niggles keep this from 5 stars

I'm deeply upset with this product and would not recommend it to anyone.

Firstly, the rear plastic cover is of a poor quality and after two weeks use is discoloured and scratches very easily, thus I had to remove it.

Secondly, as I had to take the rear cover off the band itself now doesn't fit properly and feels loose. Obviously it fits and covers the phone but does't fit like a glove - nice and tight.

Thirdly, as a result of the second issue grit and dirt can now get between the band and the phone - which has led to my phone being scratched around all four corners.

Finally, the clear band itself has now become discoloured and looks ugly. This is my third iPhone and the previous two were like new as I sold them/passed them on as they were properly protected. My iPhone 5S is now scratched all over.

I'm going to have to replace the case with one that is FIT FOR PURPOSE.
