This case is one of the best i've ever used.
I always heard how awesome otterbox was in the past but never actually tried them because of the steep price and how bulky it makes the phone. this case is just he opposite. it's not as expensive as i've seen them before and it's very slim. it's also very sturdy. i don't drop my phone very often but if i do i feel comfortable that this case will protect it. don't get the life proof for the 5 unless you plan on being around water often. read the reviews and compare it to this case. you will be very happy in this purchase.
