If you want bomb proof this is the case. You can throw it and drop it and it's waterproof. I found that I can open it and take out the phone when I am at home and need more phone control. I wasn't expecting it to be so bulky and heavy... Gasket to seal out water doesn't always want to stay in place... When I ordered this I wanted bomb proof... now I think that I wanted almost bomb proof. I think this case is a bit much for my needs. I feel the phone needs to be closer to the protective screen cover, it's hard to touch the corners of the screen or anywhere close to the edge.
