Proporta Barbour Hard Shell Case for iPhone 5/5s

IMG_8736The Barbour hard shell or snap-on case comes in a few different colors. Currently, Proporta has the case in brown in stock. The case retails for $33.95 USD on their website (link) and was sent out for review.

The olive green color and quilt- like design looks nice. It is a simple design, but is still sophisticated and classy.

The case adds minimal bulk, but as a drawback it provides little protection. There is scratch protection for the back of the iPhone, but the front is fully exposed. All of the buttons are accessible so most of your 3.5 mm jacks and lightning cables will work without removing the case. The camera cutout is large enough so there is no interference with the camera or the flash. The case is flush with the front of the iPhone so there is no lay on the table design.

Overall, the case is great as a snap-on because of the minimal bulk, but for those who are accident-prone, this may not be the case for you as it provides little protection.
