The new Spigen iPhone 5S / 5 case has arrived. The Tough Armor is the new leader in protective cases providing better impact absorption than any other boxy case on the market. The new Air Cushion Technology corners reduces the thickness of the case while providing optimal protection for your iPhone 5S / 5.
- Extreme Protection from drops and scratches
- Air Cushioned & Spider Web Patteren TPU case
- 1.5mm lip to protect the screen even with Spigen Tempered Glass screen protectors
- Slimmer but more protective than other protective cases on the market
- Compatible with Spigen Tempered Glass screen protectors
Q. What is the difference between the Slim Armor and the Tough Armor?
A. The Tough Armor is our thickest case yet for the Slim Armor series. The main difference is that the TPU and the frames are bigger and thicker for even better drop protection. We also have utilized a new Air-Cushion technology along with our Spider-web design for ultimate shock absorbency.
Q. Are the frames compatible with the original Slim Armor?
A. No, the frames are not compatible between Slim Armor and the Tough Armor frames. The optional frames are not compatible with the Tough Armor.
Q. What does it mean by "Double Layered"?
A. The case is actually in two parts, we have the anti-shock absorbent TPU case as the body and a polycarbonate hard case shell for that additional protection. The hard case portion is interchangeable with other Tough Armor hard frames.
Q. How do I remove the case?
A. Remove the device by pushing the case from the upper right corner first. Then push the upper left corner of the case to completely separate the device from the case.
Q. Can I use the case with my headphones/speaker?
A. The case is compatible with Apple EarPods, and earbuds with L-shaped plugs (within 6.17mm diameter) including Beats by Dr.Dre.
Q. Is it made out of real metal?
A. The Gunmetal and Metal Slate are the names of the colors that are available, but the actual case is made out of polycarbonate with a metallic finish.
Q. Is the case compatible with the GLAS.t/R/Nano series?
A. Yes it will be compatible with Spigen Tempered Glass screen protectors
Q. What if I had more questions about the product?
A. Not a problem, just contact our Product Development Customer Support team on Helpdesk: www.spigen.com/contacts

I guess the best thing I can say about this case is the fact that my iPhone 5 will never be without it again. Has already survived two drops. Slim design which has been carefully and very stylishly thought through in every aspect. When you combine this with GLAS.tR Nano Slim Screen protector you really have an unbeatable combination. The GLAS.tR not only protects but somehow even enhances the quality of the retina display. I'm one of those that has spent hundreds of dollars on cases over the years trying to find the right one. I won't be looking anymore or wasting any more money. I only ask that you get the iPhone 6 case ready to go. Thanks

I've had otter box after otter box for my iPhones and nothing feels as great as this case does, I just received mine in the mail today and took off the otter box which had been broken again, already! I was tired of a case that was suppose to be sooo great that ended up breaking all the time. I wanted something new and with my iphone 5s I decided to try this case. I love the feel of having this in my hand! It's so light and smooth and looks great too! I love the square big botton look and I love how easy they are to push. I no longer have to jam down on my power button to turn it on instead I lightly tap it! Seriously it's that great! I can turn my iphone on by dropping a feather on it. This case deffinety blows any case I've had out of the water with it's great look amazing feel and wonderful design. I recommend this case to anyone who wants to have something as close as possible to the real size of an iPhone, keep the look and color of their iphone and protect their phone at the same time! The only disclaimer I have is that the back can get scratched easily but it seems sturdy and it's better then scratching your beautiful iphone! Get this Case! I'm loving mine!

- Best case, everyone loves it. Review by Carls
Value Quality Design
So I recently made the switch from LG to Apple and decided to spend a little money in a new phone. Let's just say that j was super nervous about the investment. I knew that whatever phone i got, it would have to last a few years cause I am not one to buy a new phone or upgrade every time a new one comes out. I don't remember how j came across Spigen but I am overjoyed that I did. I decided on the Tough Armor because I wanted a case that eased my mind if I accidentally dropped my phone. Other reviews on cases like it from other manufacturers would complain that the rubber sleeve would expand and become very loose and that the plastic casing wouldn't fit and protect it anymore. I like how This Spigen case doesn't rely completely on the plastic outer casing to keep the phone protected. Even if the plastic shell was off of my case, I would feel like my phone was protected. That right there tells you how well they thought about the quality of the case. Yes the plastic piece does scratch pretty bad but I love my purchase so much that I won't mind buying a replacement when I get sick of it. I don't see myself switching to any other brand. I only trust my iPhone with Spigen.

- Great Case for iPhone 5S Review by Wendell
Quality Design Value
Like some of the other reviews have mentioned, I spent a lot of time researching which case to get to protect my new iPhone 5S. After all was said and done, I decided to go with the Tough Armor case (I previously had a Neo Hybrid EX for my Galaxy S2 which was great too).
After ordering one via Amazon, I was disappointed because the seller (MobileExpress, just in case anyone else orders from them) sent me a counterfeit product. Needless to say, it was returned and I got my refund. I then ordered straight from Spigen and couldn't be happier. It only took 5 days (including the weekend) from placing my order to receiving it in the mail. Very quick service!
As for the case, it's a perfect fit and complement to the iPhone 5S. Although it covers most of the actual phone, it's what you sacrifice for the added protection. The window for the Apple logo is a nice feature. It also fits well even though I have the Ultra Crystal screen and back protector on as well. Buttons are easy to press and the openings are very accommodating for the camera, cables and speakers.
This case is highly recommended as is Spigen!
