Like a velvet glove wrapped around a gold brick.
Which we think is a pretty apt description. Creamy-smooth, extra-thick reinforced silicone cladding wraps around the solid aluminum-and-glass awesome that is the iPhone 5, protecting its edges, back and sides from bumps, jolts and other injuries. A rich matte finish on the exterior is easy to grip. Protector is custom molded for a precise fit, with cutouts for access to controls, headphone jack and Lightning connector.
