I bought this case last year and can't believe how tough it is. I have very dry hands and have dropped my iPhone several times on hardwood, tile and even in concrete parking lots and my phone is still in perfect shape. I was doubtful at first that it would stand up to my accidental ways and it didn't disappoint. Two thumbs up! I usually carry the phone outside of the home in my purse and the only recommendation I'd make is get get a light color so you can see it easily.
