    I'm leaning towards that one too. I have a case mate case on my 4S now. Couldn't find the same one but the tough case looks very close....and not bulky either. The price is a bit steep but case mate is high quality. I'll probably order this one soon.

    40 dollars for that junk, looks like a cheap TPU case from eBay or Monoprice

    $40?! There has to be a better value out there.


    Also, the guy in the ad looks like a rapist.

    On my friend's life proof, I can barely hear her talking and vice versa. I don't like the fact that the phone is covered entirely.

    I think I'm going to go with this one despite the steep price. It looks like a thinner/skinnier Commuter Case and I'm all for it. :D

    I like this case, do I really need a screen protector as well?

    Looks like it offers very little if any protection . I am sticking with an Otterbox defender for the win :D

    The Tough Case is a rubber liner around the phone that is wrapped in a plastic shell. Use the promo code "Tough" and save 20% if you order it through Casemate's site.

    I just ordered the blue/titanium one. And yeah, they're rubber (Otterbox Defender material) on the outside and plastic on the inside.

    I bought the Case Mate Tough case today for iPhone 5. It's great. I was originally going to go with an Otterbox Commuter but was turned off when it had the same thickness as the iPhone 4S with a Commuter case. I thought the new case would be thinner, as the iPhone 5 is thinner.

    This case is a great alternative to the Otterbox Commuter if you want something much thinner, and much better grip too.

    Nice case, but $40 is ridiculous. $15 max for that.

    I agree, it is expensive, but it's good quality and excellent fit. $15 cases usually look, feel, or fit like garbage.
