Last weekend was an exciting weekend for me. My last contract ran out on my iPhone 4 and I could finally purchase a new iPhone 5. (It’s these little Apple things in life that make me smile some days) . After picking up my new iPhone I had to find a case I liked. I had a few demos and review cases in my office, so I tried them and just wasn’t really happy. I like a case that I can easily slide in and out of my pocket, one that protects the corners and sides from hard knocks and the back from scratches while still being lean and looking good.
This week I received a TYLT Bumpr case for the iPhone 5. It fits my need perfectly. The case is really two cases in one. The first is a slim protective colored bumper case with a black protective back. It’s colored “bumpr” absorbs shocks and sits just far enough over the front edge to protect the glass when you lay it front face down on a table. It’s light-weight and the iPhone controls are a breeze to use thru the case.
The second case is a solid black bumper style that fits over the first colored bumper for a person looking for a more rugged solution. With this bumper over the first one, the iPhone can take a real lickin and not show the wear. It’s a little too much for my everyday needs, but if I am worried about an upcoming trip or travel, the second case would fit the bill.
The colors are red, blue, purple and yellow. I like the look of my purple case on my black iPhone and to this point, it’s the perfect solution for my needs. The MSRP is $29.99 and you can find the TYLT Bumpr case along with all the other great gear from TYLT at their Web site tylt.com.
