Possibly the best item I've yet to receive through Birchbox for overall utility, durability, and aesthetic. I exchanged out my former iPhone case with this model the day I got it because it just looked much cooler and was a lighter build; I kept the old case close thinking I may need it. I haven't. I've also dropped my phone with this as protection and that's been fine. Will note that I use this in combination with a heavy duty screen guard and feel my bases are covered aside from wet, semi trucks, overheating, buckshot, etc.
