* Thin
* Lightweight
* Inexpensive
* Grip; the soft feel versions of this case create a suede texture that is nice in your hand. The gloss version isn't slippery, the perforations help with grip, but I prefer the soft feels extra grip.
* Breathe; the only case I like more than this one is the Magpul Exec. However, it doesn't breathe so moisture builds up. Heat, humidity and dust will form a nasty sludge in most other cases. The perforations of this case allow heat and moisture to escape.

* Color; the black iPhone has a bluish gunmetal coloring while this case has a warmer tint. If you're getting the dark grey to compliment the dark grey of the iPhone you will be disappointed. It doesn't look terrible but it's not ideal. I recommend going with a different color.
* Durability; this case is very similar to the Default Case. The thin, lightweight material has the tradeoff that it will stretch and crack over time. This style case has always been my favorite and this flaw is present in all of them. Hopefully the future will gift us with a better plastic.

Definitely recommend! Had one with it for 5. Easy to put on, looks cool and does a great job protecting phone from minor drops or bumps. Can't beat the price!

UPDATE: *almost a year later and this case is still in perfect shape!!

I am in charge of our companies iPhone fleet and have tried many cases for users, and seen how each holds up to use and abuse.

These cases provide basic protection and are great for people that use applications like streaming video and audio, or GPS that makes their phone very warm. This case allows the phone to breathe, unlike other cases that actually insulate the heat and make things worse.

The colors are cool (except the silver which comes off looking a little cheap and low-quality) and they have a great feel to them. Slippery enough for those who like to slide it in and out of pants pockets all day, but enough grip to hold onto the phone easily.

They dont add alot of width or depth to the phone, so it's pretty unobtrusive.

The only downside to these cases is the weak point that is next to the silent/volume switches. Since its thinnest here, this is ALWAYS where the case fails first. Then it becomes a sharp broken plastic piece that some people can live with for a while, but will eventually fail and they need a new case. I get around 6 months or so of heavy usage before the thin plastic piece cracks or breaks. Some people get much more time out of it but are more gentle or dont use their phone as much.

Since the price-point came down from where they originally priced, it's not bad to just use it and buy another once it wears out.

If you don't like to read reviews, I'll leave you with this: BUY THIS CASE!!!

I'm a fan of leaving my phone sans case because I love the natural look of the iPhone 5; my phone, however, does not appreciate this. I decided to look for a thin, yet durable, case. I have previously used the Incase Slider case, but it was still a little thick for me. Also, after having it for a while, a corner of it broke off. I'm not putting down that case, as I'm sure the break was my fault, but nevertheless it was time to find a new one.

After searching Amazon, I came across the elago S5 Breathe. It looked great, seemed to be thin, and was considerably less than comparable cases. This worried me a little bit, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!!

Seriously guys (and girls), give this case a shot.

First off, it looks great. As someone who usually thinks cases detract from the phone's natural look, I was shocked: I actually think this case makes the phone look better.

Second, you can barely tell it's there. Sure, you get a better grip on the phone (due to its smooth, yet grippy, texture), but it barely adds any weight. (I just removed the case to make sure I wasn't exaggerating, but I really can't tell a difference in weight with/without a case.)

If you want to add some protection to your phone, and also add a little style/color, this is a great case to choose! It's considerably less than comparable options, comes in a lot of colors, and seems to be very durable. As you can see, this is the kind of product that makes you want to go write a long review, because it really is that great!

Color: Coral Blue Verified Purchase
I was looking for an attractive, minimalist case that would protect against scratches, bumps and small drops, and would not interfere with the lightning-to-30pin adapter or flash. I also wanted some non-skid added to the slippery iphone 5. This case almost does it all. It looks really nice on my white phone, with the silver back peeking through the little holes. It's pretty sturdy. I recently returned a case that I thought I liked until I discovered it completely ruined flash pictures, so I tried that right away on this one. The flash pictures are perfect, which isn't surprising since it has the largest camera/flash opening I've seen on any case. However, it isn't as non-skid as I might like. It feels secure in hand, due to the texture provided by the little holes, but it's fairly hard and slides easily on a hard surface. It would probably not protect from sliding off a gently sloped surface or being bumped from a desk or table; it just isn't rubbery enough for that. This isn't a deal-breaker for me, but it is a shortcoming.

My biggest problem with this case is the fit, which initially seemed almost too loose. I used it for a few days before writing this review to ascertain whether it would stay on well. It does. There isn't a fear of it falling off, even in a fall. It's more cosmetic. It doesn't fit snugly against the screen near the volume buttons. The portion of the case between the screen and the volume buttons is a thin piece of plastic, as is necessary to provide access to the buttons. That little piece of plastic doesn't hug the phone, leaving a gap large enough for light to be seen. I've added a couple of customer images to show this. I'm not going to return it, because it will work just fine, but I also won't be buying it in any additional colors, which I probably would have done if the case fit better.
