Re: Folio/Flip cover case for iPhone 5
Well...honestly it's not very protective at all if you drop your device. However, it will protect the device from putting it down on any surface or items in your pocket(if you pocket your device). Its basically a BookBook, but much, much thinner and no slots for DL/cc/debit cards. I still use a screen prot along with it and have a skin that goes on the metal band around the phone just to protect it a bit more. Its very minimal on protection, and if you want to use your device as close to being naked as possible, this fits nicely. I've had my 4S for 22mths now, and i've gone case-less on rare occassions, but could never do that all the time. I purchased the SurfacePad back in August and have not taken it off since then. i really like it alot! There also were some negative reviews on it about the front leather pulling apart to expose the inner plastic that helps hold the shape of it covering the front of the phone after a few weeks of use, but TwelveSouth must've improved the glueing on this around the sealed edge(s) because my phone goes in and out of my wristlet pocket quite often through out the day, and I have no issues or any sign of that happening.

Here is the link to TwelveSouth for it, and theres a video you can watch of it "in action" also
