Pros: Feels great in the hand. Good non-sliding grip. Bottom of case removes if needed to fit in a charger. Great colors.
Cons: The power button is a little bit hard to push through the recess.
After much shopping, giving away and returning, I think I finally found the ultimate case for my pretty phone. To me it is perfect in every way. Thin, easy to hold on to, doesn\'t slide out of your hand, good all around protection. It fits into all my different chargers without having to take the bottom part off, which by the way is a great feature if that were needed. The Garnet Red color is gorgeous, but of course I\'m partial to red. There are lots of other pretty colors to choose from. If you tend to constantly drop your phone to concrete floors or in the toilet, this might not be the preferred case for it, but it is plenty protection during \'normal\' use. The price is right, lower than that of most cases not as functional and well made as this one. The power button is a little bit hard on your fingertip when pushing it (the cutout is hardly bigger than the button), but not enough of an issue to take away a star. I highly recommend this case for the elegant iPhone 5.

Pros: Light and thin
Excellent case that adds just the right amount of protection without the bulk. May not be enough for some, but Im very careful with my phones and this is perfect for me! I was using a Commuter (a fine case as well) but it added too much heft to the beauty that is the iPhone5.
Just What I Wanted

Pros: Fits great, doesnt add bulk
Very happy with the case. I wanted a case that fit snug and added a little grip. The case does the job. Would recommend!

Good grip in the had. Easy to install. Looks great. Only one "con": difficult to fit over screen cover. With some maneuvering, though, it worked.

Pros: Thin, light and solid
Cons: Power button cutout
Ive had this case for a few days now, and overall I like it. My only gripe is the cutout for the power button. As thin as this case is, its still thicker than the buttons. This means that I cannot use the pad of my finger to push the power button as the button is now recessed within a hole that is just barely larger than the button. While that makes it hard to accidentally hit, it also makes it harder to intentionally use.
My case is black, in a shade that almost matches the black of my iPhone. And now I have no fear of scratching or otherwise causing minor damage to the phone casing from it sliding across my desk.
