Default VWTECH?

Looking to get a maximum protection case for when I'm out on the trails. I thought I had it narrowed down to the Trident and the Poetic until I came across this one.

Does anyone have any experience with it?

Thanks

If you use airplane mode when using that case or your trail is directly under a cell tower, go for it. If not, then aluminum cases degrade the piss out of signal and rape your battery trying to find or maintain a signal, or even worse attempting to transmit on zero or one bar.

I was wanting to get this case just for work, but was hoping someone would review it here first.

i had a similar case on my iphone 4, it was made my lunatik. its a direct rip on the taktik series, but im glad that they had enough sense to bring it to multiple devices. i ordered one from ebay, ill have it next week (slow boat from hong kong). i can review it for you then
Dear lord... please allow this dangerous combination of hair spary, bat slobber, and D.O.T. four automatic transmission fluid to excite my mind, occupy my spirits, and enrage my body, provoking me to kick any man or woman in the back of the head regardless of what he or she has or has not done unto me.

The Love Mei case(s) are just too bulky for my liking. There is just no need for that.

Not to worried about bulk , I'm out and about in nature a lot and would really enjoy not having to worry as much about my brand new phone. Especially since I don't have any insurance for it!

I can appreciate that. I have an otterbox commuter, and it has provided protection very well, and it isnt too bulky.
