I just bought this thing. I put it on and proceeded to miss the first incoming call because the square design and rubber made it almost impossible to get out of my pocket. Back in the box with the receipt and about to head back to the Oakley store.

This case is realy nice and useful! I’m a wildlife photographer and this cover is what I needed for a forest tour..
And it reminds me the “Blame!” manga style of Tsutomu Nihei, one of my preferred manga artists.
I’ll buy one for sure…

I have cracked two cases by dropping my phone. The phone was protected, but the case broke both times. A buddy has this Oakley case and loves it. To demonstrate it to me, he tossed his phone on the ground (concrete) and it bounced like a ball. The phone was totally protected. I was surprised that it only cost $30.00. The decorative cases cost that much and more. It fits well too. The phone won’t fall out. It is bit bulky, but very industrial and tough.

The case is absolutely awesome! I have had it for several months now. I accidentally left my iPhone on the back tire of my Jeep. The phone fell off in the driveway when I left. No damage to the phone at all. It also is really nice being able to stand the phone up on its side for watching videos.

I’ve had this case since it came out and it’s unbelievable. i hope they make a case like this for the 4g because I’ve dropped it off ladders, scaffolds, roofs(I’m a carpenter btw) and even made it through a few bad break ups with a few trips toward my living room wall. It doesn’t fit on any of the 3g phone but they do make a case just for them. i think it’s a hardshell thought and not this rubber so i don’t know if it could take the same beating.
