We found this case at our local Verizon store. We spent what seemed like days looking for an appropriately protective yet cool case for my daughter with no luck. She spied this one in aqua blue and was sold. It has the funky look of many rubber bands layered on top of one another. The power and volume buttons are covered by the case, but very easy to feel and press. All other buttons or ports are accessible. The case material has a very interesting feel, not rubber, but not hard like a crystal case either. It feels like a matte hard plastic that is flexible. Works with a screen protector and the raised front lip provides good protection if the phone lands face down. The texture of the rubber band design makes for a nice grip, with none of the peeling or lint issues of silicone. Slides into a pocket easily. A nice bonus if you are interested: one of the few cases I have seen that has a loop to attach a lanyard or clip.
