I had this phone case for about 8 months, and I put it through the wringer. A little background to understand the use of the phone case, I am a Search and Rescue Tech and a Firefighter/EMT and I also run around on a farm. This phone case was great when I first had it. The only thing I didn't like was that the ports on the bottom were covered by one strip of rubber that was easily misplaced (which I did misplace it about 2 months before switching back to an otterbox). It was tough, felt good in my hands, and it served its purpose. The mounting system was okay, could be a little tighter but I never owned any, just used others mounts. When I started to actually use this phone case for the intended purpose of to protect my phone, things went downhill. To start off, this case is very very slick. On tables, the floor, countertops, I felt like I could send it flying like a curling stone with the slightest touch. That also meant that when my hands were wet, cold, or slippy, it was hard to hold on to this phone case. Which then resulted in drops from various heights. I probably dropped this phone case less than 10-15 times in 8 months, most being around 2-3 foot drops, the highest being a 4 foot drop. I am unsure of what they rate this case for, but apparently it wasn't that. Every drop, the case got scratched, chipped, or cracked a little more. I wish I could add pictures to show the insane amount of gouges and dents and chipping that occured, especially on the bottom corners. I was okay with all that, thinking maybe it was my fault and it wasn't supposed to be 3 foot drop tough, until I dropped it onto concrete getting out of my car, and it shattered the screen. I had hoped to continue my streak of never breaking phones, but I do believe that this case directly led to that screen shattering. There is minimal shock absorption material, and the plastic transfers force directly to the phone and screen. Another downside to this case is that it gets very dirty very fast, and it's hard to clean. I just switched back to an otterbox because I have never had any problems with those. This phone case is NOT as tough as they make it seem and 55 dollars for it is a rip off. I wanted to support this company and have a nice looking tough case with unique mounting capabilities but I cannot sacrifice my phone for that. I do not recommend this case for anything besides light use or the occasional NavBoard use. After 8 months of use, this case is disappointing to say the least and I would not spend more than 20 dollars on this case. I hate to be "that guy" and just trash talk a product but I feel that as a consumer who was under the impression that this case was tough, its important to note it is really not.
