Tech21 iPhone 6 Trio Band minimalist case

Sometimes, cell phone cases, especially for the iPhone, get just a little to outlandish. The iPhone 6 is already a fairly large phone and when you add some of the protective cases I’ve seen, the phone gets huge. Yet a case to protect the phone is a must, so I turned to Tech21, who offered to let me try a Trio Band case for my iPhone.

It’s awesome. The case is very small and thin, clipping to the phone snugly. Yet it’s made of D30 impact plastic which absorbs and dissipates shocks from impact. It also allows access to all of the plugs and ports. The case uses what Tech21 calls “Impactology.”

The case is smooth, but tactile, allowing for a good grip but without sticking to your pocket or gathering lint. It also preserves the shape and form of the iPhone 6 while giving a slight ridge at the front so if you lay your phone face-down on the table, the screen won’t touch the surface. Nice touch.

There are four color combinations available for the Classic Trio Band case, including the very dark gray with red edges that I got. A pink, blue, and white case are also available, so if you have a specific style, you can probably accommodate. You can find the case on the Tech21 site here.
