And by that I mean it bends. I slammed my car door shut and caught my Mini in it. It was inside a Saddlebrook gadget leather sleeve, so it didn't get a scratch. But the Mini was curved (like a parenthesis). Glass did not shatter, not did the case crack. Smelling a trip to the Genius Bar, I opted to put it back in the leather sleeve and force it straight with my hands. I'm happy to report the curve is gone, the Mini is fully functional, and not a scratch or crack in sight. It was amazing.
