I got this and it is quite tough. However, it did fall off my bike twice in use. One time it managed to protect the phone, even when I rode over it. The other time it popped open on the ground, allowing my lovely phone screen to suffer cracks and scratches as it hit and slid across the road surface.
The problem is that the shoe is a friction fit, so it can work loose as you ride over bumps. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND superglue to make sure that any detachable part is actually fixed to the mount.
What I don't understand is why a proper locking mechanism is never used in these devices, like those seen on many bike lights...
Also, in use I have found that a small amount of water can find its way in. No damage caused so far.
Finally, the small bung to block the charger hole is incredibly easy to lose.
