I've received a lot of positive compliments on the case and it has earned a spot as one of my go to cases. The Tech 21 case is not waterproof, but I did bring it to a watermark yesterday as it felt like the most protective way to keep my iPhone in a crowded theme park.
Speaking of protection, Tech 21 has coined the phrase IMPACTOLOGY(TM) to refer to the science of protecting mobile devices, tablet and even laptops. Indeed Tech 21 provides cases for more than just iPhones. As they say, they are "obsessive about protection, so you don't have to be."
