The case itself it nice if you're not looking for something extremely sleek. The phone fits snug. I was a little worried about the phone getting scratched while putting the case on because of sharp plastic edges, but this didn't occur. Also these edges raise above the face of the phone about a millimeter when the phone is in. Not a problem, just something to know. Overall the case looks good.

However there are 2 problems that impede usability of the phone:

1) Creates audio problems. The border of the case goes entirely around the phone with grills on the bottom for speaker outlets. Unfortunately one of the iPhone 5's mics used for noise cancellation is on the bottom as well. This creates a problem when making phone calls depending on your environment. If it's a little bit noisy, you will get a static feedback that comes through your earpiece and is extremely disturbing during a call. Other people don't hear it, it is just on your phone. Using no case or other cases which don't cover the speaker/mic, this feedback doesn't occur.

2) The volume and power buttons are very stiff making them difficult to press. The material the buttons are made out of do not allow enough give, so you have to push very hard towards the front of the buttons to get the inside extension to click the phone.

Future revisions of the case may be able to correct these problems or Apple may put out a fix for the static feedback issue, but for now I'm using a case that doesn't cover the mic outlet.

I really like this case. It shipped in less than a week all the way from Kentucky to California. The case itself is pretty nice. The fabric on the back is nice but the case is pretty thick. Some may say that its a bad thing but for me I say its great because it just makes my iPhone even safer from damages. The case also sticks above the screen on the sides so if you are fortunate enough to drop your iPhone flat on its screen, the case will absorb all of the impact. In total I really think it is a nice case I would defiantly recommend it. Too bad the price dropped after i bought it :(

--- Update after ~6 months ---

The TPU rubber that they use stretched out horribly, for me, and one little piece decided to detach from the polycarbonate frame, to the point where I think I'm going to replace the case with something else.

The fabric seems to have lasted all right, though it does end up getting dirty under normal use (it probably needs to be washed periodically; I bet shampoo would do the trick). There were a few frays and times that it decided to peel up a little since I got it, but I was always able to trim the frays off and press the peeled parts back down.

Reducing the rating to 2 stars. It's a great case while it lasts, but I think ~$30 is too much to pay for something that stays in good condition for less than 6 months under normal use.

--- Initial Review ---

Good:
- Looks to be decent to good protection (haven't tested it.. :) )
- The texture is awesome
- Doesn't get slippery when you hold It for a long time
- I think it looks really good

Bad:
- Likely to get dirty, I suppose (not a problem for me so far, as I tend to be very careful with electronic devices)
- Feels like it absorbes the moisture from your fingers to some extent. I think I prefer this to it becoming slippery (as in a plastic/rubber case), but its still not my favorite
- The screen side of boarder, above the lightening connector is a bit too bendable, since there's nothing to support it. They couldn't have made it any other way, I think, and it doesn't really bother me, but still
- The lock button is noticeably harder to press. I'm fine with it, but it is a little annoying
- Dust tends to accumulate on the phone around the connectors and side switch, since they're open. Unavoidable, and not bad..

I LOVE this case. i have gotten so many compliments about it and it is so cute! the lock button insn't hard at all to push and neither are the volume buttons. the fabric seems very durable and already i've spilt something on it and it didnt stain the fabric. i LOVE the design and i feels like a very protective case. it is very easy for me to put the case on and take it off. also it is completely not bulky which i really liked. i definitally would recomend this case to anyone!

I have used this iPhone case for about 3 months. I am extremely careful with all my things so my phone and the case do not take a lot of wear and tear. The fabric on the case has started to come off completly making the case look terrible. I would not recommend this product at all.

It came within 2 days so delivery was smooth. It snapped on easily and stays on well. It's got a lovely feel to it, not as slippery as others, more a slightly textured canvas. The slightly raised edges feel like they will protect the phone a bit. But it's a nice clean cover with a more subtle design and my son is thrilled with it.

Edited to add - Originally a 5 star review, written in Oct 2012. But by Feb 2013, the case is cracking - the plastic side bits are bending/buckling and one has actually broken. It's starting to catch on things and my son wants a new one. So this is now a fail. He actually takes good care of his phone (not throwing it anywhere!) It's been living is pocket for 3 months and is falling apart.
