Made for Apple: Draco, Peli, Ozaki and DIY

It's been a while since we've had a collection of cases, today we have a model with a card pocket for the iPhone 5/5S, a new Draco series, where there is something to see (but you can only spend money on a couple of models), a Peli protected case for iPad Air and strange products of unknown brands.

Ozaki O!coat-0.3+Pocket for iPhone 5S

A complicated name, but this is the 0.3 series familiar to many of you, only with a pocket for credit cards. I am well aware of the problem of the series, after some time, from heating the back of the cover is slightly deformed, it stops adhering to the ends as tightly as at first. It seems to me that the company also knows about this - buyers throw away a worn out case, often buy a new one, the same. It is painfully convenient to use exactly 0.3 - it does not increase the size of the device, protects the back and ends, looks great. The easiest way to change the color of the device is also important. Last year, Ozaki decided to expand the line of these cases, I talked about the model with a wooden insert, there is also a version with cotton and a pocket for a map. In my opinion, this is a good option for those who seek to make life as easy as possible for themselves. You go to a restaurant for a meeting, well, what might you need besides a card and a phone? That's right, nothing else. There are several colors of this model, including pink.

The cover costs about a thousand rubles, you can find it cheaper and more expensive. I personally like the model, for the summer the most it. I don’t know yet how the material will behave, most likely, in a few months the cover can be thrown away, but it’s not a pity - the accessory copes with its task.

Strange aluminum: COI+ Aluminum case

Sometimes things like this get on the test - in appearance, everything seems to be very good, the pictures are beautiful, the characteristics too. Well, everything is fine. Then you start using it, and it turns out that the thing is, in fact, good only on paper. This is exactly what happened with the COI + Aluminum case. The packaging is simple, when you remove the film, a piece of paper with the name of the company disappears along with it. The case itself is made of aluminum, first you need to attach a plastic frame to the front of the iPhone, then install the device in an aluminum base. The colors look good. Alas, , it didn’t work out the first time, the plastic clings to the silicone inside, it's all crumpled, I had to pull it out. He pulled it out, as you can see in the photos, it was not possible to insert the silicone back normally, part came out normally, part seemed to remain in the case. By the way, the packaging can be used as a stand, but you don’t want to do it at all. The volume buttons are completely closed, there are no problems with pressing, but it looks strange. The case does not greatly increase the size of the smartphone, probably someone will like it. I did not like. It was not possible to install the device normally the first time, the silicone inside is somehow strange - and the combination with metal is also strange. And with the help of the site where information about this model is posted, I found out about the existence of the apple-ru.ru store - I wonder if Apple is going to somehow fight the gray market? It's time to start.

Подводя итог по поводу COI+ Aluminium case – если вам нравится этот чехол, стоит купить. Я бы этого делать не стал. И о цене ничего сказать не могу.

Удалось потестировать и чехол Overdigi Macaron, это еще более странная вещь. Этакий кожаный кошелек с встроенным чехлом. Что больше всего меня разозлило, так это клапаны, пытаюсь их убрать назад, чтобы спокойно поговорить, чехол сгибается, аппарат выпадает. Отлично.

The word "craft" fits perfectly with this product. It would be necessary to make a wallet with a built-in case and put a needle and thread in the kit so that the user can sew the flaps, put the iPhone in the back of the desk drawer and return to the days of “this was before cell phones.”

I express my gratitude to mobile.dndtaiwan.ru for the accessories provided for the test.

Draco - three new models

A lot of reviews of the new Draco line have appeared on the net, it is strange, but many journalists point blank do not notice the shortcomings. Apparently, money shuts up the mouth perfectly and can turn a mediocre product into candy. Well, my task is simple - to tell it like it is, which I will do. The new line of bumpers is called Allure, and for the first time Draco has models that do not require mechanical assembly. That is, there is no need to twist anything. I'll start with what I didn't like. And then, maybe, we will get to good accessories.

On the official website, the Draco Allure P model costs about 990 rubles, this is the cheapest case for the iPhone 5/5S. As you can see, it consists of two halves, a black frame in front and the main part is made of polycarbonate. Multiple colors: blue, pink, white, red. I (as always) for some reason brought red. There are additional buttons in the kit, one duplicates On / Off, the second helps to move the Mute lever. Ten minutes later I lost it, because the cover could not be properly snapped into place. I strongly advise you to arm yourself with a bank card, the most convenient tool for disassembling Draco cases - otherwise you will lose all your nails, the halves are connected very tightly. Tight, but at the bottom of the strip of plastic still walks a little, which is frankly annoying. The gaps at the bottom are also annoying, nothing can be done with them. The resulting design looks good, but for 990 rubles you get an inexpensive product, not without a flaw - no special sensations in your hand. But there is protection for the ends and the back, a groove for attaching the strap. In my opinion, it's better to save a little and buy Allure A.

Здесь тоже ничего не надо скручивать, и этот бампер мне понравился гораздо больше. Он толково сделан, есть несколько вариантов, самый скучный – это черный. Лучше выбирайте как на фотографиях, белый с золотым, для весны и лета самое оно, причем хорошо смотрится даже с iPhone 5S серого цвета. Кнопки тут тоже надо вставлять, они сделаны из металла, нажимаются и щелкают очень хорошо. Обратите внимание, что здесь передняя часть из алюминия. Мне не понравилось только одно – щели на корпусе. Ясно, что это из-за отсутствия винтов. Но надо было серьезней работать над дизайном. Тем более, бампер стоит около 4 500 рублей.

Unfortunately, my work does not allow me to walk around with the same accessory for a long time - I often have to install my iPhone somewhere or try on other accessories. For myself, I would not choose Allure A, I liked the Allure W model the most. Here the back is made of wood, the letters after Allure just indicate the material. The back cover is screwed with four bolts, there is a slot for the strap, the front part is made of aluminum. This model looks very good, elegant, nice to take in hand. Each Allure W has its own pattern on the back, you can evaluate how the materials and textures are combined. In my opinion, they fit perfectly. There is a model where aluminum is not silver, but black. W costs about 6,500 rubles, many say that it’s too expensive for some kind of bumper - I would suggest evaluating the case in a store before buying and then paying money. As a gift, this is definitely a good thing, the owner of the iPhone 5/5S will appreciate it.

What is the result? The Allure series will appeal to those who do not like to twist bumpers. But the plastic part at the bottom of Allure P dangles too much (and this thing is strange in the hand), Allure A is a good thing, and I can recommend it (the cracks are a little annoying), the best of the considered ones is Allure W. Wood, old good screws guarantee no gaps, there is a feeling of a quality piece. I think it's time for Draco to master magnetic latches, camouflage and make a line of inexpensive but high-quality bumpers (bumpers) for the iPhone 5/5S. But I’m looking for a simple plastic bumper for myself and I can’t find anything sensible - I simply love this form factor since the days of the iPhone 4.

I express my gratitude to the dracocase.ru store for the accessories provided for the test.

Peli Armor for iPad Air

There is a well-known company Pelican in a certain environment, experts invent and manufacture boxes and wardrobe trunks of various sizes and for various purposes. Basically - to protect something in the most difficult conditions. It all started with a special float for divers, there are also flashlights in the assortment, but I personally know boxes better. Some time ago, various accessories for mobile devices began to be produced under the Peli brand, the names are different, the meaning is the same, and the company, by and large, is the same. It does not make sense to go into details, it is more important to look at one product to understand whether it makes sense to deal with Peli or not. By the way, I personally would be interested to get acquainted with such a model, I am very interested in how the Mute switch on the side works.

Peli for iPhone 5/5S

This case for iPhone 5/5S also protects your smartphone from rain, dust, water, snow, drops from a height of about two meters. And the price is quite normal, about eighty dollars, looks brutal. However, let's get back to the iPad model.

The case comes in a normal package, get ready, you have to unscrew a lot of screws, fourteen in total. They are both front and back, they hold the lid. Please note that the lid is held by an aluminum part, if you open it all the way, then it is pressed against the back of the case, it can also work as a stand. When closed, it is fixed by a ledge on the left. The cover looks interesting, matte plastic, white hard rubber inserts. There are versions of other colors, such as gray with orange or black and gray accents. All connectors are closed with plugs, they sit tightly in place. The buttons are duplicated, they are pressed tightly, but this can be forgiven, but the Home button is pressed perfectly, softly. When assembled, the cover turns into a monolith, nothing creaks or backlash, it sits like a glove.

Естественно, многие начнут ныть уже после того, как прочитают про четырнадцать болтиков. Мол, это что же, надо столько крутить отверткой, напрягать свои ручки? А может, поискать что-нибудь, где нет такой фиксации? Поискать можно.Another question is that without a rigid fixation, your case may shatter into several parts when dropped, and the tablet will end up on concrete. I'm not talking about the fact that if the accessory is not assembled correctly, water can get inside, well, or a raindrop will seep into the 3.5 mm jack. And then you will tell in the service that the red indicator of moisture - it happened by itself. In general, when I see bolts in a fashion accessory, it also angers me, and even infuriates me. When in a piece for protection, then let the screws be better.

The case is IP54 rated, which means it is dust and splash resistant, which means you can use the device on the beach or on an expedition without any problems. And even if you have the iPad in your backpack while you kayak down the river, it will still be able to survive the adventure. According to the developers, the tablet (or rather, the case) will survive. Just keep in mind that Peli seriously increases the iPad Air - both in size and weight (add another five hundred plus grams to the weight of the tablet).

The price is about a hundred dollars, the described model is called the ProGear Vault Extreme Protection Case, as far as I understand, it is not yet sold in Russia. It's hard to describe my experience. The thing is clearly of high quality, but it will suit either professionals, or during hikes in the forest and similar events - when you need to protect your gadgets as much as possible, because they can save lives. For example, if you like picking mushrooms, then Peli and iPad will help you not get lost and have a wonderful time in some clearing, watch a movie at an impromptu dinner. In general, if you need to protect the iPad Air, then pay attention to this case, I have not seen anything like it yet. By the way, there is such a model for iPad mini.

I express my gratitude to the mediashop24.ru store for the device provided for the test.

The word "craft" fits perfectly with this product. It would be necessary to make a wallet with a built-in case and put a needle and thread in the kit so that the user can sew the flaps, put the iPhone in the back of the desk drawer and return to the days of “this was before cell phones.”

I express my gratitude to mobile.dndtaiwan.ru for the accessories provided for the test.

Draco - three new models

A lot of reviews of the new Draco line have appeared on the net, it is strange, but many journalists point blank do not notice the shortcomings. Apparently, money shuts up perfectly and can turn a mediocre product into candy. Well, my task is simple - to tell it like it is, which I will do. The new line of bumpers is called Allure, and for the first time Draco has models that do not require mechanical assembly. That is, there is no need to twist anything. I'll start with what I didn't like. And then, maybe, we will get to good accessories.

On the official website, the Draco Allure P model costs about 990 rubles, this is the cheapest case for the iPhone 5/5S. As you can see, it consists of two halves, a black frame in front and the main part is made of polycarbonate. Multiple colors: blue, pink, white, red. I (as always) for some reason brought red. There are additional buttons in the kit, one duplicates On / Off, the second helps to move the Mute lever. Ten minutes later I lost it, because the cover could not be properly snapped into place. I strongly advise you to arm yourself with a bank card, the most convenient tool for disassembling Draco cases - otherwise you will lose all your nails, the halves are connected very tightly. Tight, but at the bottom of the strip of plastic still walks a little, which is frankly annoying. The gaps at the bottom are also annoying, nothing can be done with them. The resulting design looks good, but for 990 rubles you get an inexpensive product, not without a flaw - no special sensations in your hand. But there is protection for the ends and the back, a groove for attaching the strap. In my opinion, it's better to save a little and buy Allure A.

Здесь тоже ничего не надо скручивать, и этот бампер мне понравился гораздо больше. Он толково сделан, есть несколько вариантов, самый скучный – это черный. Лучше выбирайте как на фотографиях, белый с золотым, для весны и лета самое оно, причем хорошо смотрится даже с iPhone 5S серого цвета. Кнопки тут тоже надо вставлять, они сделаны из металла, нажимаются и щелкают очень хорошо. Обратите внимание, что здесь передняя часть из алюминия. Мне не понравилось только одно – щели на корпусе. Ясно, что это из-за отсутствия винтов. Но надо было серьезней работать над дизайном. Тем более, бампер стоит около 4 500 рублей.

Unfortunately, my work does not allow me to walk around with the same accessory for a long time - I often have to install my iPhone somewhere or try on other accessories. For myself, I would not choose Allure A, I liked the Allure W model the most. Here the back is made of wood, the letters after Allure just indicate the material. The back cover is screwed with four bolts, there is a slot for a strap, the front part is made of aluminum. This model looks very good, elegant, nice to take in hand. Each Allure W has its own pattern on the back, you can evaluate how the materials and textures are combined. In my opinion, they fit perfectly. There is a model where aluminum is not silver, but black. W costs about 6,500 rubles, many say that it’s too expensive for some kind of bumper - I would suggest evaluating the cover in a store before buying and then paying money. As a gift, this is definitely a good thing, the owner of the iPhone 5/5S will appreciate it.

What is the result? The Allure series will appeal to those who do not like to twist bumpers. But the plastic part at the bottom of Allure P dangles too much (and this thing is strange in the hand), Allure A is a good thing, and I can recommend it (the cracks are a little annoying), the best of the considered ones is Allure W. Wood, old good screws guarantee no gaps, there is a feeling of a quality piece. I think it's time for Draco to master magnetic latches, camouflage and make a line of inexpensive but high-quality bumpers (bumpers) for the iPhone 5/5S. But I’m looking for a simple plastic bumper for myself and I can’t find anything sensible - I simply love this form factor since the days of the iPhone 4.

I express my gratitude to the dracocase.ru store for the accessories provided for the test.

Peli Armor for iPad Air

There is a well-known company Pelican in a certain environment, experts invent and manufacture boxes and wardrobe trunks of various sizes and for various purposes. Basically - to protect something in the most difficult conditions. It all started with a special float for divers, there are also flashlights in the assortment, but I personally know boxes better. Some time ago, various accessories for mobile devices began to be produced under the Peli brand, the names are different, the meaning is the same, and the company, by and large, is the same. It does not make sense to go into details, it is more important to look at one product to understand whether it makes sense to deal with Peli or not. By the way, I personally would be interested to get acquainted with such a model, I am very interested in how the Mute switch on the side works.

Peli for iPhone 5/5S

This case for iPhone 5/5S also protects your smartphone from rain, dust, water, snow, drops from a height of about two meters. And the price is quite normal, about eighty dollars, looks brutal. However, let's get back to the iPad model.

The case comes in a normal package, get ready, you have to unscrew a lot of screws, fourteen in total. They are both front and back, they hold the lid. Please note that the lid is held by an aluminum part, if you open it all the way, then it is pressed against the back of the case, it can also work as a stand. When closed, it is fixed by a ledge on the left. The cover looks interesting, matte plastic, white hard rubber inserts. There are versions of other colors, such as gray with orange or black and gray accents. All connectors are closed with plugs, they sit tightly in place. The buttons are duplicated, they are pressed tightly, but this can be forgiven, but the Home button is pressed perfectly, softly. When assembled, the cover turns into a monolith, nothing creaks or backlash, it sits like a glove.

Естественно, многие начнут ныть уже после того, как прочитают про четырнадцать болтиков. Мол, это что же, надо столько крутить отверткой, напрягать свои ручки? А может, поискать что-нибудь, где нет такой фиксации? Поискать можно.Another question is that without a rigid fixation, your case may shatter into several parts when dropped, and the tablet will end up on concrete. I'm not talking about the fact that if the accessory is not assembled correctly, water can get inside, well, or a raindrop will seep into the 3.5 mm jack. And then you will tell in the service that the red indicator of moisture - it happened by itself. In general, when I see bolts in a fashion accessory, it also angers me, and even infuriates me. When in a piece for protection, then let the screws be better.

The case is IP54 rated, which means it is dust and splash resistant, which means you can use the device on the beach or on an expedition without any problems. And even if you have the iPad in your backpack while you kayak down the river, it will still be able to survive the adventure. According to the developers, the tablet (or rather, the case) will survive. Just keep in mind that Peli seriously increases the iPad Air - both in size and weight (add another five hundred plus grams to the weight of the tablet).

Ozaki O!coat-0.3+Pocket for iPhone 5S

A complicated name, but this is the 0.3 series familiar to many of you, only with a pocket for credit cards. I am well aware of the problem of the series, after some time, from heating the back of the cover is slightly deformed, it stops adhering to the ends as tightly as at first. It seems to me that the company also knows about this - buyers throw away a worn out case, often buy a new one, the same. It is painfully convenient to use exactly 0.3 - it does not increase the size of the device, protects the back and ends, looks great. The easiest way to change the color of the device is also important. Last year, Ozaki decided to expand the line of these cases, I talked about the model with a wooden insert, there is also a version with cotton and a pocket for a map. In my opinion, this is a good option for those who seek to make life as easy as possible for themselves. You go to a restaurant for a meeting, well, what might you need besides a card and a phone? That's right, nothing else. There are several colors of this model, including pink.

The cover costs about a thousand rubles, you can find it cheaper and more expensive. I personally like the model, for the summer the most it. I don’t know yet how the material will behave, most likely, in a few months the cover can be thrown away, but it’s not a pity - the accessory copes with its task.

Strange aluminum: COI+ Aluminum case

Sometimes things like this get on the test - in appearance, everything seems to be very good, the pictures are beautiful, the characteristics too. Well, everything is fine. Then you start using it, and it turns out that the thing is, in fact, good only on paper. This is exactly what happened with the COI + Aluminum case. The packaging is simple, when you remove the film, a piece of paper with the name of the company disappears along with it. The case itself is made of aluminum, first you need to attach a plastic frame to the front of the iPhone, then install the device in an aluminum base. The colors look good. Alas, it didn’t work out normally the first time, the plastic clings to the silicone inside, it all crumples, I had to pull it out. He pulled it out, as you can see in the photos, it was not possible to insert the silicone back normally, part came out normally, part seemed to remain in the case. By the way, the packaging can be used as a stand, but you don’t want to do it at all. The volume buttons are completely closed, there are no problems with pressing, but it looks strange. The case does not greatly increase the size of the smartphone, probably someone will like it. I did not like. It was not possible to install the device normally the first time, the silicone inside is somehow strange - and the combination with metal is also strange. And with the help of the site where information about this model is posted, I found out about the existence of the apple-ru.ru store - I wonder if Apple is going to somehow fight the gray market? It's time to start.

It's time to start already.

Summing up the COI+ Aluminum case - if you like this case, it's worth buying. I wouldn't do it. And I can’t say anything about the price.

We also tested the Overdigi Macaron case, which is even stranger. A sort of leather wallet with a built-in cover. What pissed me off the most was the valves, I try to put them back in order to calmly talk, the cover bends, the device falls out. Excellent.

The word "craft" fits perfectly with this product. It would be necessary to make a wallet with a built-in case and put a needle and thread in the kit so that the user can sew the flaps, put the iPhone in the back of the desk drawer and return to the days of “this was before cell phones.”

Here, too, nothing needs to be twisted, and I liked this bumper much more. It is intelligently made, there are several options, the most boring is black. It is better to choose as in the photographs, white with gold, for spring and summer it is the most, and it looks good even with a gray iPhone 5S. The buttons here also need to be inserted, they are made of metal, they are pressed and clicked very well. Please note that here the front is aluminum. I did not like only one thing - the cracks on the case. It is clear that this is due to the lack of screws. But it was necessary to seriously work on the design. Moreover, the bumper costs about 4,500 rubles.

Unfortunately, my work does not allow me to walk around with the same accessory for a long time - I often have to install my iPhone somewhere or try on other accessories. For myself, I would not choose Allure A, I liked the Allure W model the most. Here the back is made of wood, the letters after Allure just indicate the material.

The buttons are duplicated, they are pressed tightly, but this can be forgiven, but the Home button is pressed perfectly, softly. When assembled, the cover turns into a monolith, nothing creaks or backlash, it sits like a glove.

Of course, many will start whining after they read about fourteen bolts. Like, what is it, you have to twist the screwdriver so much, strain your hands? Or maybe look for something where there is no such fixation? You can search. Another question is that without a rigid fixation, your case may shatter into several parts when dropped, and the tablet will end up on concrete. I'm not talking about the fact that if the accessory is not assembled correctly, water can get inside, well, or a raindrop will seep into the 3.5 mm jack.

According to the developers, the tablet (or rather, the case) will survive. Just keep in mind that Peli seriously increases the iPad Air - both in size and weight (add another five hundred plus grams to the weight of the tablet).

The price is about a hundred dollars, the described model is called the ProGear Vault Extreme Protection Case, as far as I understand, it is not yet sold in Russia. It's hard to describe my experience. The thing is clearly of high quality, but it will suit either professionals, or during hikes in the forest and similar events - when you need to protect your gadgets as much as possible, because they can save lives. For example, if you like picking mushrooms, then Peli and iPad will help you not get lost and have a wonderful time in some clearing, watch a movie at an impromptu dinner. In general, if you need to protect the iPad Air, then pay attention to this case, I have not seen anything like it yet. By the way, there is such a model for iPad mini.

I express my gratitude to the mediashop24.ru store for the device provided for the test.
