Kinetic energy x-orbing protective case provides security and style without bulk.
Massive Impact Protection
NuGuard KX cases use state-of-the-art x-orbing gel technology to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy. This revolutionary gel technology allows KX cases to be just a fraction of the size of bulkier protective cases while offering the massive impact protection NuGuard KX is known for.

Enhance and highlight the colorful and playful nature of any iPhone 5C with the NuGuard KX. There are plenty of wicked color combos to choose from with six available colors and designed case openings that reveal the color and beauty of the iPhone 5C. Select among matching iPhone 5C colors, or mix it up to express your colorful personality, your mood, your clothes, or just for fun.
Full Port Access + Great Grip
Precision cutouts allow for full access to all of the iPhone 5C ports and buttons, and NuGuard KX's one-piece design makes installation a breeze. A unique cross hatch texture design on the back and sides of the case ensures a sturdy and strong grip while smooth front edge rails allow for easy pocket removal.
The strongest case also deserves the strongest warranty, with a best-in-class replacement lifetime guarantee.

Rating: 5/5 Tough as nails February 14, 2018 Took my teenager over 4 years to break his iPhone 5C with this case, and only cracked the glass. Phone glass replaced and still in good working order. Imagine the punishment it took!

Rating: 5/5 Great value November 13, 2017 Saved from expensive phone damage several times, very much compensating for the extra bulk and weight. The upper volume button does occasionally activate by itself; a minor irritant.

Reviewer: Going4Broke
Rating: 4/5 Very nice case, with one small nitpick June 20, 2017 This a nice quality case. Fit and finish are good, and the amount of texture is just right in my opinion (not too slick or too grippy). I was looking for something not too thick or too minimalist. Some of the pictures made it seem a little thick on the sides, but I haven't found this to be an issue. The ring/silent button is exposed enough to use, the volume and sleep/wake buttons only require a reasonable extra effort to activate (similar for most cases).

Port access is generally good, except for one thing (hence only 4/5 stars). The space around the Lightning connector is large enough to plug in the Apple Lightning/USB cable that comes with the phone, but not large enough to plug in some other Lightning cables and adapters. In particular, Apple's Lightning to USB 3 Camera adapter does not quite fit. I found I could just make it work by wedging it in from an angle, thereby forcing the case opening to spread a bit. But I feel like compatibility with all official Apple cables and adapters should have been considered in the design of the case. Just shaving a little material off the front and back of the opening would fix this without compromising fit and protection.

I also think NuGuard should offer more case color options. I went with black because blue has been out of stock for ages and all the other choices are a bit gaudy.

Rating: 4/5 Good Product but needs to be revised January 10, 2017 I bought this for iPhone SE and it fits well. The black and yellow contrasting color works well to quickly identify phone from everyone else. The case lacks the textured side and back found in the newer KX iPhone 6S and 7 case for better grip and feel.

Rating: 5/5 Great Protection at low price September 14, 2016 I had a $45 case that lasted 6 months. This at $20 was the same I had on a 5S and the one for 6S is just as good. The key area I like is it is not slippery.

Reviewer: penguirl Location: Northern Colorado Age: 55-65 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Best Case I've Owned August 19, 2016 I purchased this case to replace a Griffin Technology Survivor Core that was falling apart. I like that the NuGuard KX's outer shell is one piece and cannot separate at the seam. The inside of the case is lightly padded with a felt like material that is very soft. The volume buttons were a little wonky at first but they've settled in and work perfectly. The sides of the case have fantastic texture to give you a good grip, it cleans easily and doesn't show any scratches or such.

I also like that when placing my order I was able to indicate who had helped me find the NuGuard KX for my 5c. Thank you again, Rebecca R.

If I could change one thing, which is the only thing I would change, I would like the headphone jack hole just a little bit bigger so that I could plug in a headphone jack to RCA jacks cable to connect to my stereo.

Overall an excellent product from an excellent company, I would definitely buy again.

Rating: 5/5 Better than expected July 28, 2016 Just purchased a SE. Had a 4S with which I used a Otter Box Defender. The Defender offered excellent protection but was too bulky for my taste. This offers close to the same level of protection at a lower cost and without all that bulk. I will buy NuGuard products again if needed.

Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Seaside California Age: 55-65 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Cases March 29, 2016 My iPhone has been without a case for months. Prior to that I had an Otter case. It did protect my phone but after several years developed cracks on the bottom corner and pieces of the case fell off. A 5s feels weird in hands without a case. This case feels secure and cost less than Otter's. The longevity is unknown but I'm satisfied with this purchase.

Rating: 5/5 Saved My Phone January 28, 2016 I've had several of these. The first one (Trooper color) got sort of dingy looking, so I bought another...this time black. These cases have saved my iPhone5s from multiple drops and bangs. Well worth the investment. Easy to carry the phone in my front pants pocket, even with the case on. Wouldn't go without it.

Rating: 3/5 Nice Case January 8, 2016 I like the case but does not seem to be compatible with screen protectors

This review is from NewerTech NuGuard KX. Color: Midnight. X-treme Protection for Your iPhone 5/5S.

Response from MacSales.com, Technical Support January 11, 2016 The NuGuard KXs screen protector for iPhone 5S / 5C / 5 leaves a small gap around the edges of the screen to prevent the screen protector from curling or peeling when used with a protective case such as the NuGuard KX. http://eshop.macsales.com/item/NewerTech/IPH5NUVIRKX/

Rating: 5/5 Amazing iPhone Protection! January 8, 2016 I bought this item because it promised safety for my iPhone. Since I have received this product I can only say that I am very happy with my buy. My phone has slipped a couple of time out of my hand and landed on tiles in a shopping mal or outside on concrete and every time the case has done its job and my cell phone ist as good as new! Can only recommend! Also as in product description all buttons are easy to reach with the only con that the power button is a little harder to press with the cover on but that is no real hinderance. Great buy!

Rating: 3/5 Good Protection, Hard to Press Buttons September 24, 2015 This is a nice case, and it protects my wife's iPhone just fine. But, it is very difficult to press the buttons. So, while the phone still looks like new when you take it out of the case, you can barely use any of the volume, sleep, mute buttons.

Rating: 5/5 Best case I have ever owned! September 14, 2015 I swear by this case. I have tried many different cases but this one is the one that I feel most confident about. I have dropped my phone many of times and never felt I had to worry about it. The case itself is not the most attractive case, but it lives up to my expectations regarding the safety for my phone. The case is very durable and even after 2 years of daily use it looks just as good as when I purchased it. It is easily removable. So there is a possibility to store some cash or a credit card if you need to for emergencies. The only minor draw back is that the top ON/Off button seems a little stiff. I would recommend this and I have just bought the new case for the upcoming iPhone 6s.
