Design and Material

Spigen makes high quality accessories that anyone can afford. Rugged Armor provides good protection with an affordable price. I liked its thin and light design beside perfect protection.

Spigen Rugged Armor case is made out of Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). TPU material makes it extremely flexible but also very protective. It is extremely easy to take on and off due to flexible design.

What I liked most with Rugged Armor is, it has a good looking and elegant design. When I take it to my hand, I feel the quality! It has small but elegant finishes for better protection and usability. Grippy texture makes it extremely easy to handle. Air cushion technology provides extra protection support from falls. Phone’s buttons are also protected by outer case buttons. They are flexible and easy to press.

Inside of case has a spider web pattern that helps protection but probably you will not see it after inserting your phone 🙂

One more small but elegant design detail: It has a small rise around phone’s camera which protects your phone’s lenses. Sometimes small changes makes big differences!

Only bad thing with Spigen Rugged Armor case is, it has very limited color options. Actually, only available option is matte black. In my opinion, this color is perfect but some people may prefer other colors, though.

What I most liked with Rugged Armor case is its elegant slim body. It is not rough anymore. On the other hand, it provides fair protection. You may find thick and more protective cases on the marked, but Rugged Armor balanced usability and protection.

Some people may find Rugged Armor fairly classical. Actually it is! Only matte black version is available. For this reason, if you are looking for a more fancy case, probably Rugged Armor case is not for you.
