Tech 21: Protective cases for your iPhone


I always find it hard to get the best case for whatever my latest smartphone is but I’m loving this one for my iPhone 5s; it’s neat, doesn’t conceal the look of my phone too much and it actually provides impact protection at the same time. Boom!

The Tech21 Impact Mesh is the ultimate impact protection keeping your phone relatively protected from everyday accidents, I’ve got two kids under 3, trust me, I NEED this!  The D3O material provides a barrier between your iPhone and whatever it’s about to smash into. On impact, the clever little molecules within D3O lock together, absorbing the energy and dispersing it away, basically you have an added layer of durability – we could all do with that. Impactology at its finest!
