" I am a Deputy Sheriff for a Metro Atlanta County, assigned to the Mounted Patrol Unit so just a regular day at the barn can be pretty rough on a case.
I highly recommend these cases to anyone who needs a case that will stand up to anything.

"I've used your iPhone 4 case for years. Now I have a horizontal iPhone 5 case and there is nothing on the market like it. I have used cheaper cases and they end up being more expensive because they break. My Nutshell is one of the best investments I have made."
