    Can any Sheath owners comment on how much drop protection these cases provide? I'm looking for a thin alternative to my Apple leather case, but with a little more protection.

    I've been searching YouTube for drop test reviews, but haven't found anything for this case.

    I'd be really surprised if the sheath gave any more drop protection than the leather, it's pretty thin. I have the synthesis which is supposed to be caudabes "most protective " case and it's pretty thin. I haven't dropped it yet but I'm guessing a small drop would be ok.

    Sheath owner here.
    I think this 'case' is more scratch protection than drop.

    If drop protection is your requirement I can't recommend this one. But I love mine.

    Just curious because the Sheath seems slimmer than the Apple leather case. I've never heard claims of the leather case providing any kind of drop protection, yet Caudabe says the Sheath's Shocklite material will protect against everyday drops.

    A year old thread but I figured I'd pay here instead of starting a new one. I just got one after thinking about it for a long time and I'm pretty impressed with it so far. Also the box claims is drop tested to six feet, I don't know how that is possible because it's so thin but that's what caudabe is claiming.
