Anyone else pick one of these up yet? I was going to use my old Magpul case on my new 6s Plus, but stopped into the ATT store today and saw this (the last one) on the shelf. Couldn't find any reviews of it yet (it just released), so I took a gamble on it.

Case packaging is super nice flip-book style that lets you get a good look/feel for the case without having to destroy half the packaging first.

I went with the "Contact" version of the case, which has the clear back (no branding). The "Shock" version has a matte back, but has branding in the bottom right.

Overall quality of the case is EXCELLENT. Fit and finish is definitely some of the best I've seen, but I'd also expect that for the ~$35 I paid for it. It's marketed as a 6/s case and it was a tid bit tight getting it on, so it's probably not one you're going to want to be taking on-off all the time (I've no doubt the material could handle it, just that it would be a pain to keep doing).

The case has a pretty minimal top lip to cover the screen when face down, maybe ~ 2mm max, same goes for the rear of the case and the camera.

The case material is matte in texture and the sides have a triangular criss-cross pattern for added grip. It's definitely not slippery at all and I can see this being a huge plus for me.

The port openings are nice and big, so the vast majority of aftermarket accessories will work with it (my Westone UM2 headphones, which have a funky right angle plug fit excellently). Buttons have good tactile feedback and aren't too easily pressed; the silent switch is easily accessed and not too hard to flip.

Highly recommended if you're looking for a low-profile, but protective, iPhone 6 case.

That's what I'm rocking and honestly it's one of the best cases I've ever owned

I wonder how this case compares to the Speck CandyShell or even the MightyShell? Anyone happen to have both or all three and care to chime in?

Also, the case the original poster is referring to is available over here:

And here is a picture:

Personally, I'd opt for the other model since I have a space gray phone and all black appeals to me. Here's that version:

I actually purchased the all black shock case for my 6s plus. Absolutely love it. Awesome fit, very tight to the phone and I love the small camera hole

I am actually thinking about going back to this. Really might be the best of both worlds for me. Slim, military drop protection, goo fit, etc..
