Silk Innovation has introduced the Stealth Armor case for iPhone 6. It provides a rugged shock-absorbent black rubberized core with a polycarbonate exoskeleton shell. Also included is a high quality scratch-resistant screen protector film made of tempered glass. The package includes three interchangeable back plates in gold, gunmetal, and silver.

This case features a “Dual-tred” design with air cushioned corners and a shock-absorbent thread design to disperse shocks. Elevated 360 degree corners protect the phone from touching a surface when laid flat.

The purpose of the interchangeable back plates is to personalize your case with your phone color.
Shields are designed to match phone back colors.
The case has an MSRP of US$17.99, and it is sold exclusively through Amazon at that price. It offers a one year limited warranty. The website states that it meets military grade protection requirements, but it does not note the standard reference to support that statement. It comes in an attractive three fold style package that makes a nice presentation although there is no open slot that allows customers to feel the finish. The company URL is available on the package. The case, with a shield, weighs 1.2 ounces (28 grams) and is ⅜-in (10 mm) thick.
The camera port is large and the black case provides adequate absorbent reflection protection. The rubberized inner case provides a soft support for the phone so there is no chance for scratches. The volume and Sleep/wake buttons are fully covered and easy to use. The opening for the ringer on/off switch is raised just enough to prevent accidentally switching it.
Using The Product
It's extremely easy to insert and remove the iPhone because of the rubberized case. The attached shield then provides a sturdy case that is easy to use. This case works with a tempered glass screen shield should the owner wish to use one. The reinforced corners provide good drop protection and it would be almost impossible to crack the screen glass due to a drop because the raised corners really do give good protection.
The covered buttons work smoothly and the case is very easy to grip.
Do I Recommend It?
I do. There are several things that I really like about this case. The interchangeable shields are attractive and add a personal touch to the case. It is extremely easy to insert and remove the iPhone and the price is quite reasonable for a case that provides good protection. It is also a unique case in that it gives the hard core protection of a rubberized back and then balances it with the color coordinated shield.
Look at shield design and color options.
Silk Innovation says that a version for the iPhone 6 Plus is coming soon.
