At Test Freaks, we don’t seem to focus on fashion too much; for good reason, we are kind of have tunnel vision. However this does not mean we can’t try and look good, correct? Like one of those makeover reality shows, Speck is trying to make us go metro-sexual with their newest line of iPhone 3G cases. The Fitted iPhone 3G Case is the newest line from the well known tech accessory maker.

This case comes covered by a soft fabric material and is available in Black Pinstripe, Tan Houndstooth and Black & White Plaid. Now there is no reason not to be stylish when sporting your iPhone 3G!

The Speck Fitted iPhone 3G Case comes in a white and orange cardboard package with a clear plastic clamshell window showing off the case. On the side of the package is a description of the case in several languages.

Inside the packaging we find the Fitted iPhone 3G Case and a set of instructions.

The Fitted iPhone 3G Case we received for review is the Black and White Plaid version; not the most masculine model, but a nice looking case none the less.

It is composed of a black plastic shell with the black and white plaid cloth material covering the entire outside of the case. There are openings for the volume, headphone jack, power button, camera and dock connector. The Fitted iPhone 3G Case measures 2.75” x 0.75” x 4.75” and weighs in at 4.0.

Once locked within the case, the iPhone 3G is securely in place. Of course as with most iPhone 3G cases, the screen area of the phone is open and can be exposed to any physical trauma. The Fitted iPhone 3G Case should protect the phone from fall from a height, as long as the iPhone does not land with the screen side down. Otherwise, the case seems to provide good protection from minor bumps and dings.

As with previous Speck products we have encountered at Test Freaks, the Fitted iPhone 3G Case is well constructed with a stylish appearance.

Conclusion:

The Speck Fitted iPhone 3G is well designed and elegant in its presentation. The fabric material was easy to grip and felt secure in my hands. Overall, I felt it provides fair protection for the iPhone 3G from minor to medium impacts and falls.

The pattern choices are not to my taste, but Speck will hopefully expand that repertoire in the near
