Default Skin Tight Rubberized Case Review

Please Login to Remove!

This is not your average case.

It’s a whole lot more. Speck Products have managed to put together more then just a case or a holster, they’ve just made your blackberry indestructible, while, looking cool

You’ve probably seen them everywhere on ipod's, and for a very good reason, they not only protect your blackberry from scratches and drops, but also, they look good. The texture on the case itself makes it very easy to hold on to, and is never slippery, even when wet, meaning that your less likely to drop your blackberry.

What surprised me, is that Speck Products included a clear plastic lens to protect the screen. The lens is fitted into four grooves in the rubber case, with that kind of protection, your blackberry screen is indestructible. All the holes on the rubber case are nicely rounded off and fit perfectly. The case fits tightly around the blackberry and provides no room for dirt to build up. Even though the case is made of a fairly thick material, it doesn’t change the ergonomics of the 7290 at all, talking or typing is just made more enjoyable as the berry is much easier to hold on to.

But wait, there’s more. The Skin Tight Case also features a swivel holster, which the blackberry with skintight case fits perfectly into, made of durable, yet lightweight silver plastic. No worries about battery life either, as a magnet is included in the case to turn your screen off, or to turn on your blackberry’s “in holster” settings.

Fit and finish of the case is excellent, after some moving around of the case to line the plastic window up correctly. The only thing that I am disappointed in, is that on the black skintight case, the led hole was sunk in, but wasn’t cut out. This wasn’t a problem on the clear case, which I prefer anyways, as its visible through the silicone.

Price: $34.95

Available for 7290, 7280, 7230, 7250, 7520, 7510, 6750, 6230, 7100R & 7100T

Available in Clear, Black and Light Blue
