Hybrid Hardshell for iPhone 5
Awesome case! Much improved over previous version
I went and got this case the day it came out...oh my is it gorgeous! Unlike the Snap On Case, there's some rubber to protect the antenna band (and the volume and power buttons) and it does actually give it a touch of grip. The finish of the polycarb is nice and the colors seem much more true and vibrant than the Slide Frame case.
I went in figuring I was going to get this in Java Blue but tried the Sherbet as a "last resort" (figured I'd try them all on my phone) and it looks fabulous on the white iPhone! I had a hard time taking it off as I liked it so much on. I have a white LifeProof case and am thrilled to have such a nice looking case for when I don't really HAVE to have the LifeProof (i.e., non-pool activities).
If you were disappointed in the other cases, I think you'll like this one!

I recently upgraded to the iPhone 5s and purchased this case in Bittersweet. It fits perfectly and maintains the light weight and super slim profile of the iPhone. After using it a couple of weeks the back plastic part has NO visible scratches which is a huge plus since some times the cases scratch easier than the phone will. I would definitely go back to Vera for another case in the future!
This is my 2nd Vera Bradley iPhone case (the first one I bought for my 4s last year met an unfortunate end thanks to spilled nail polish remover but the phone survived).

Dropped phone on tile
Silly min pin jumped on my lap, phone flew out my hand, bounced on the tile, and skittered across the floor. No scratches on case and no damage to iPhone. 5 stars ******. Vera Bradley print is very vibrant and interior shell is very beautiful. If you like style and functionality, then look no further!
