Silicone Skin cases by Orion Gadgets.

Recently I came across some iPhone accessories from Orion Gadgets. In particular were some silicone skin cases; one black, one white. Both cases were identical except for the colours of course and come with regular backings; no designs or anything to clutter it up. The material with these cases felt thicker than most silicone cases which is nice to see because a little thickness with silicones adds to the durability of the case. Both cases cover the entire back, sides, top, and bottom of the iPhone leaving holes open for the camera, the headphone jack, the sleep/wake button, the SIM tray, the silent switch, the dock connector, and speaker/microphone. Only the screen portion, home button, and incoming audio microphone (and sensors) are exposed on the front.

After trying the cases on the iPhone 3G, they both provide a fairly tight fit. However, I did find the area around the Home Button to be somewhat loose instead of really tight as it has been with previous silicone cases I have used, but it hardly caused an issue. Since the cases are of the silicone type, they do not add bulk or weight to the iPhone 3G, but if you were to drop the phone with these cases on, the iPhone 3G would likely be damaged.

After testing the cases, everything about them works pretty well. Since they are just silicone cases they provide that tight, snug fit that really reveals the true form factor of the iPhone 3G while at the same time adding some protection. Overall, I like them. Both cases provide adequate protection and a form fitting design for an 8/10 score.

The Silicone Skin cases can be purchased from the Orion Gadget online store, however I am giving away both pictured above TODAY! Read below to find out how to win!

    Silicon cases are like the Canadian Forces, they may look strong and cool, but they’re actually really weak and ineffective.

  • Silicon cases are an excellent way to protect your iPhone 3G…. that is of course until your permanent case arrives!! 🙂 My personal preference (because no one asked) is the IS on the front of the phone and the new OtterBox Defender series 3G case (just released two days ago) for the rest of the phone. I have an OtterBox for my 1st gen iPhone and it is by far the best case going. Just pop out their screen protector and use the IS instead. $50 for the OtterBox, $15 for the IS front… $65 for the only case you’ll ever need! Oh, am I allowed to promote these guys here??!! 😀

    I need a case, cannot postpone,
    A silicone one I’d like to own,
    At 2 months old, my iPhone’s prone
    to fingerprints, dust, and more unknowns,
    As well by touch, it feels like a stone,
    But a silicone case renders a fatter tone.

    Thus this post is my wishing bone,
    For a silicone case of my very own,
    That my iPhone can wear when it’s fully grown,
    I’d like to own, I’d like to own…

    I love silicone cases because I can carry the iPhone around without adding bulk and they are grippy enough that I don’t have that live fish in my hands anymore. Since the screen is virtually indestructible all I really need to protect is the scratchy back.
