    I really like the look of it and the fact that it is solely TPU and no polycarbonate backing like on the Tones so nothing to scratch the device. It doesn't look much thicker than the Tones so that is good. Hopefully the buttons are more tactile than the Tones though!

    I think I am going to take the plunge and order one. I am debating between what color I want for my white iPhone 5. Either the white or the moss green. Any opinions?

    I'm surprised this isn't getting a lot of attention being that the Switcheasy Tones was so popular.

    Actually looks pretty cool. If I didn't love my Cygnett Apollo I may consider it.

    I ended up taking the plunge and ordered one. I have heard nothing about the Bonds so hopefully it doesn't disappoint. If anyone is interested, I can post my impressions of the case once it arrives.

    There's not one color available that I would want.

    I will! It shipped so hopefully I will get it sometime next week :D


    It definitely does look comfortable to hold. The metal framing looks like it would give it good grip.

    If I had an iPhone 5 this probably would be my case.

    Got the black and its a great case. Very smooth feel, comfortable.

    The design in the back is metal and indents a little bit inward so you have a nice textured feeling with the softness of the case.

    It adds minimal bulk for me.

    Using it now instead of my speck cs grip.

    This is a quality case from SE.

    Also the white one probably looks incredible in person. I love the black but the white must be so sick. My only gripe was tiny exposed chip on edge of back metal cross design. I will sharpie it.

    The color I ordered is the moss green, which should be delivered in a few days. I think it will look nice on my white iPhone 5. I almost ordered the white but decided not to because I figured the white TPU would get dirty really quickly. If I like the case though after I try it out, I may end up ordering the white anyway.

    Is the sleep wake button tactile/clicky and easy to press with the case on? I was wondering if it is easier to press that the Switcheasy Tones since the buttons on that case are very stiff.

    Volume are sort of hard to press. Top power is perfect.

    The pictures in the web site are pretty much what you see is what you get.

    It's a nice case.

    I didn't like the tones. This one is a keepah.

    Simple to take off. Degree of difficulty in line with other cases. I do think though its a case you don't wanna yank off 20 times a day. The metal bars may become goofy or loose. But who knows yet. Still so new.

    How is the Switcheasy Bonds' thickness compared to the Switcheasy Tones and Speck Candyshell Grip?
