Does anyone have this case? How's the review? More importantly, does the case expand after usage, because my previous field case for 5s did so like crazy?

I had a field case and a bump case. The field case expanded on me, but the bump case remained tight as a glove in all the time I had it. If the executive case is made from the same harder material as the bump case, it will not expand on you.

I find it strange that the TPU can expand despite its rigidity. I believe the executive is made of the same material as the original field case, but bear the slightest hope that there is an improvement in this issue because i really like the form factor (the grey/black combi of bump case also doesn't appeal to me).

That said, does your bump case reveal the silver bezel around the iphone?

I just sent off my 5S since I've upgraded to the 6+, but IIRC it showed at most just a sliver. The original field case came loose over time, the bump case did not.
