PROS: Slender clear acryllic case; easily snaps in and out of holster; iPhone stand lets you prop up the iPhone for watching movies; full protection with all ports accessible.

CONS: Hard to reach mute slider without fingernails (especially when in holster); some headphones may not fit around headphone cutout; two piece case will separate if dropped, possibly leading to damage on second bounce; clear acrylic is slippery; pricey.

This case is thin and light when not in the holster, and the holster is easy to use with good features. You can position the holster in any orientation, and a built-in stand lets you set the iPhone down at a good viewing angle for movies. The case is two pieces that snap together, which is more than sturdy enough in your pocket. Drop the phone, though, and the case will split apart (as I found by accident when my phone dropped onto our kitchen floor). If your phone then bounces after the case splits, you could have some minor damage from the second bounce.--Rob Griffiths
