    Hi everyone,

    I just pre ordered a white iPhone 4S and was looking at the impactbands. Have you heard anything about this brand?

    seems to me like a protective alternative to other bumpers.

    From the video on the site it seems like it would definitely protect your phone well. The only thing about the case which might be a problem for me as well as other consumers is being able to get to the buttons on the side and top of the iPhone. That's simply judging from the pictures and it might be totally different in real life.

    I agree with the buttons. I'm going to order one anyways though. Seems like a good all round case.

    And I found a code on Retailmenot for 10% off. The code is "SAVEMYIPHONE"

    Thanks for the feedback.

    If you are going to get one of these, you need to get the black one. The version 3 that they are on now with the black version makes it a really good protective bumper.

    I have used the first 2 versions and loved. The edges of the screen was a little hard to reach when typing but it was manageable on the second version.

    The 3rd version has a slanted/beveled edge on the front to make it easier to type and it really does help. I ordered a version 3 and used it but due to a defect it lifted my screen shield though it really shouldn't. Took them a little longer than I would have liked to respond but they are sending me a replacement.

    Really the only issue I have with this probably final version is that the buttons aren't covered. I would prefer them to be covered. Personal preference. They are actually protected with the bumper on though.
