Customer Feedback


 "I just recently hit a deer on
 my motorcycle.
I slid 15 feet
 on my face, then 15 feet on
 my back, and somersaulted
The bike was a total
 loss. My watch was crushed,
 shoes ground offmy feet,
 shirt and pants destroyed
 and helmet wrecked.
In the
 hospital, I finally got a look
 at my cell phone... it only
 had a few minor scratches
 on it!

 My Nutshell case had taken
 the ENTIRE weight of my
 body sliding on hot pavement,
 and is STILL intact!!! 
I wear
 my Nutshell case on the front
 of my pants and I won't say
 what part of my anatomy
 that little case helped
 protect, but as far as I am
 concerned you have a loyal
 customer for LIFE!"

Nutshell Testimonials

Future Proofing
"Your company embodies what futurist Naisbitt calls "High-tech, High-touch", i.e., that in the increasingly cold, mechanistic world we live in there is a countertrend, a counter desire; to touch and feel natural things.
I applaud you for acknowledging that need.

"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."
