Tough Xtreme for iPhone 5
Tough Xtreme is Case-Mate’s most rugged case, delivering our highest level of protection in the thinnest possible construction. It combines military-grade protection with a sleek, non-bulky style. The extremely durable design is formed from three layers of toughness. A soft exterior wrapped around a hard skeletal structure is fused with a soft, impact-absorbing interior. The built-in screen protector helps to prevent screen scratches.
Durable case but color wears off
I loved this case when I first received it. It's very protective and I've dropped my phone a few times. Unfortunately the color on the pink case has worn off after only a few weeks. I've tried to clean it but with no improvement which is why it seems that the color has worn off and my once pink case is now black around the edges. Is like to try another color but I'm worried it will do the same.
Worth the money!
I like the case. Its not bulky and it protects the front and the back of the phone. All the buttons are accessible. If you have the Iphone 5s then you will not be able to access the finger print component.
Not a durable case.
The case was great for the first month but then started showing wear. Glue started seeping from the sides and areas started peeling/falling off. This forced me to buy a new case.
Product Does Not Hold Up Under Normal Use
This was actually a replacement for my first case (exactly like it except for color, which was no longer available). This case, like the original, only lasts about 6 months due to front piece separation and continuous "bubbling" between the first two parts. It is most unfortunate because this is an otherwise awesome product. My first case was covered under warranty within a year but the replacement is not guaranteed. Will NOT be purchasing another until this problem is fixed.
Tough and Sleek
I will definitely purchase this case again for my next iPhone.
I really like this case. It does a great job of keeping my phone protected from drops and minor exposures to the elements. It is a bit bulkier than some cases, but still smaller than some of the really tough or waterproof cases, so it's a good middle ground. I am fairly accident prone, and have even tripped with my phone in my hand and the case has broken my fall without breaking my phone. Great case, I would definitely recommend it. The only thing I would say is that I have the emerald green color, and it really isn't emerald, it's more like teal, but still a nice color just not as green as you might think.
