The Taktik is a heavy-duty iPhone case much like the Otterbox Defender in that it’s big and bulky,  but doesn’t look like crap or a giant hunk of rubbery plastic. Small screws hold front, middle, and rear pieces together. It’s a nice touch to make sure your phone won’t fall out during a drop.  A large amount of the shock proofing and protection in the case doesn’t come in the form of the exterior, but what’s inside the case and the primary reason for the case’s size. Lining the antennae’s of the iPhone inside the case is impact rubber that will compress together to absorb falls and other abuse.
