iPhone 5 / 5s Bear Grylls Action Case UnBoxing

I have always been a fan of the rugged style cases for my phone.  The offer great drop protection and keep the phones in immaculate condition when being used in everyday life.

Whilst out shopping I noticed a ‘Bear Grylls Action Case’ with a nice yellow reduced sticker in a local supermarket.  Reduced is always good and also it was bright orange.  Thats a good way to sell me something – make it available in funky colours.  The case was also available in a range of Camouflage colour options (wood land, DPM, and urban – there may be even more, as well as grey and plain black).

The cases are identified by a large BG logo on the bottom third which to be fair I am not convinced on.  The rest of the case definitely gets my vote on aesthetics, however the big logo is just a little too garish for me.  (Even though it bright orange.)  I mean c’mon does anyone actually want to walk about advertising Bear Grylls?

The important things then, this case feels great, it is a rubber case but some how it isn’t tacky.  It is pretty smooth, it slips into and out of your pocket with ease.  However it still has the features of a rubber case that I like, such as you can set it on your car’s dash and under normal circumstances it won’t move an inch.

It is desk safe, you can put in on the table face down and the lip of the case protects the screen.

It is screen shield friendly.  I have a full body Zagg InvisibleShield on the phone and it fits with no issues whatsoever.

It is rugged.  The corners especially make you have a great amount of faith in this case.  Although it is a rugged case it till somehow feels streamlined.  It is bulky but it doesn’t feel it.  I don’t know how that makes sense but that’s how it is!

The buttons are all responsive, the ports are all accessible, although obviously you will have issues with a fixed dock.  I have big hands and even the silent rocker is easily flipped.

As far as the silicon, rubber style cases go this is easily the most comfortable and still protective one I have used.  In fact the only point I can fault is that huge BG logo.

I will be buying one of the camo ones next!
