    This looks really interesting and different. I've used a bunch old Dbrand skins on my phones over the years, but this Honeycomb texture looks really grippy, and super cool;

    Anyone try these or see a review yet ? There 50% off today

    Call me crazy, but for $12 I ordered the Titanium one for my 7 Plus. I like skins on my phones, and let's see how this really fits and looks ?

    To me it looks like chain mail a Knight would wear :)

    Never ordered from Slickwraps before, typically I deal with Dbrand. But I placed my order on Jan 2nd, it is no Jan. 5th, and still not racking or shipping info. I've e-mailed customer support, no reply.

    They're known to be slow at responding. I've read many horror stories about their customer service on here. Good luck!

    Don't plan on getting them any time soon, if ever!

    I was given an fake tracking number after doing a paypal dispute for them not shipping and not responding. I have since gotten the credit card involved since the fake tracking number is still showing nothing (for a first class package that USPS says only takes 1-3 days shipping!)

    Slickwraps is a HORRID company!

    They can be very slow at shipping your items out. Having said that, I've had one of their matte black skins on my iPhone 7 for the last few weeks with a perfect install (guess I got lucky) and I'm happy with it.

    I'm curious as to how thick the honeycomb texture is. The matte black skin I have is thick enough that the volume and power buttons are actually flush with the skin, making it a little harder to find and press. If this new skin is thicker then the buttons may actually be slightly recessed.

    slow is an understatement.

    the non-response to emails, the deleting of ANY post on Facebook that is negative or requesting shipping information, giving out FAKE TRACKING numbers, refusing to cancel orders.... CRAP COMPANY! CRAP CRAP CRAP!

    "funny" thing.... I placed and order with Slickwraps on Dec 27th... THREE WEEKS AGO for items that were IN STOCK according to their website. Got no where with requests about shipping... Filed a complaint with Paypal and got a FAKE tracking number emailed to me. Tracking number not working and no item.... Last Friday (FOUR DAYS AGO) I placed an order with Best Skins Ever at about 10 a.m. pacific time.... MY ORDER SHIPPED THAT DAY AND IS OUT FOR DELIVERY!

    OH! And because I was burned by Slickwraps... I emailed BSE late Friday afternoon (about 10 minutes before their closing time just to verify that my order did make the shipping cutoff... AND I GOT A REPLY BACK! THAT DAY! AMAZING, eh?

    I don't know how Slickwraps stays in business with such HORRID customer service!?

    I have not had the same experience with this company. They are responsive and what I order comes pretty quickly. I don't know how much they have ready cut or if they cut items to order.

    My experience was mixed with slickwraps. I did get my order, but I waited about 16 days after I ordered to receive it and I paid extra for 2 day shipping. The thing does look great if you install it correctly. I can't say that I'd never order from them again, but I would probably look elsewhere with better shipping practices first.

    I just got this wrap for my 6s. It might. E the best looking thing I have ever put on an iPhone. And I love the texture.

    And shipping took only 3-5 days

    Maybe a bit of a necro....

    But i recently put the honeycomb wrap on my iPhone 6s. I gotta say, its amazing!
    It takes a little patience installing it perfectly, but as long as you use a hairdryer to soften the skin, the result is pretty amazing. I can definitely recommend Slickwraps.
