The Incipio Performance Level 3 is a one piece case which offers mil-spec drop protection in a grippy, compact package. It is part of Incipio’s Performance series, which runs from Level 1 to Level 5, and is arranged in order of protectiveness. Levels 4 and 5 just add a holster and a holster and built-in screen protector respectively, however, so the basic Level 3 case is probably just about as protective as the Levels 4 and 5, especially if you pair it with a screen protector. Overall, it is a really nice case. It sports a high protective lip, has super grippy sides and is easy to put on your iPhone.
* Mil-Spec drop protection: meets or exceeds military drop test standards.
* Excellent grip: grippy sides, combined with a relatively smooth back, make this case easily pocketable while being secure in the hand.
* High protective lip should do a good job protecting your screen.
* Relatively generous port openings: most third party lightning cables should be fine, but some L shaped headphones will not fit.
* Individual speaker holes provide good protection for your iPhone speaker.
* No issue with camera flashback.
* Case has a very slightly rough feel in the hand due to the grippy texture on the sides.
* Case is quite easy to get on, but requires a bit more effort to remove.
Conclusion: Overall, this is a great case and should provide excellent protection for your iPhone. Available in four colors: white, pink, purple, and black, it retails for $39.99 and can be purchased directly from Incipio as well as from other retailers. Many thanks to Incipio for sending this sample out to me to review.
