I am a bit of a case junkie and have tested a whole bunch of iPhone cases. Just about all of them have been soft cases; silicone or fancy leather cases. So today is a bit of a departure… I am trying out the new COOL MESH model from IOM Cases made from Stainless Steel.
The IOM COOL MESH case is sculpted from a piece of aerospace grade stainless steel with a fine mesh on the back and a rubberized edge around the top. At 7mm thick it adds only 0.1mm and less than an ounce to my iPhone 6. That extra bit of thickness is the rubberized edge projecting a bit higher than the screen to protect your iPhone from drops.
IOM Cases claims its COOL MESH case renders the iPhone 6/6s virtually unbreakable while its steel mesh body structure is designed to help keep the iPhone running cool and looking great at the same time. Since I don’t plan to throw my iPhone around I will take their word for that but it looks and feels like it adds substance to my iPhone 6.
When I first took it out of the box I thought the stainles steel might make it too slippery in the hand but once mounted on the phone I found the mesh back combined with the rubberized top edge provided a comfortable and secure grip.
The COOL MESH Case seems to make the iPhone 6 feel better balanced in my hand and the styling is something special. It is the first time anyone has ever commented on one of the many cases I have used on a variety of smartphones. It gathered a small crowd (4 people) of admirers when I pulled out my phone to pay for an accessory at my local Apple store. Never before has this happened.
The IOM Cool MESH case has become my daily driver and if you would like to get one it is currently only available in the US in two different types of mesh and more than 11 different styles and colors. The price is $44.95US. IOM Cases COOL MESH is available online at IOMcases.com, and via TOMO (Touch of Modern) a luxury shopping site for men.
This is a well built premium case that will enhance the look and feel of your iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus or 6s Plus.
