I just received this case in the mail today. I am very impressed to say the least. I was looking for a so called "rugged case" since I got the iPhone 5. I tried the Otterbox Defender and it was huge. Great protection but very large. I saw case mate offered this cases which claimed it was a slim profile. Well I received it today and can say that is 100% true. This case is made of high quality hard rubber. The top layer slides over the phone with a built in screen protector. Then that slides into the bottom half. Same protection as the Otterbox defender with half the bulk. I can honesty say I am impressed. I will try to post photos later when my wife comes home. Only thing I don't like of the case which like the Otterbox there is a small cutout for the top speaker and on the rear over the camera. So dust and dirt can get it unlike their proof case. So unless you are looking for a completely sealed phone this case is almost perfect. Thought I would pass along my info.
