The cases are skin like but don't completely cover the sides and backing of the Windows Phones. They offer a stylish alternative with minimal protection from scuff, nicks and dings. These cases may not tickle everyone's fancy but they can make your Nokia Lumia 920 stand out.
Currently, Gibbage Cases is offering seven design patterns for the Lumia 920 (some may be in limited supply). And if you have a custom design, the designer is open to giving it a try (no promises though).
If you followed the development of these cases you'll know that initial prototypes leached colors so the call was made to print them up without color. While the white doesn't look all that bad, these cases are easy to paint and customize. Just shoot a coating of primer and choose your favorite color spray paint.
For our test drive on the Lumia 920 cases, we took the String design around the block. The design reminds me a lot of some of Eddie Van Halen's guitars and had I the patient, I would have taped it up and painted it multi-colors. Instead, I opted for the safe route and choose a yellow that would compliment the black casing on my Lumia 920.
The case does have some flex to it, just enough for the corner tabs to pop into place and grab hold of the Windows Phone. The sides of the Gibbage Case is ribbed for additional grip and while the case adds a little bulk to the phone, it's not enough to be burdensome.
The fit is snug enough to stay in place but loose enough to remove without frustration. Fit and feel is good with just a smidgen of girth added to the Lumia 920. Not enough to be annoying but noticeable.
The case mainly offers protection from scratches to the body of the Lumia 920. It also raises the phone when laid face down to lift the screen slightly, avoiding contact with surfaces. It may protect the phone from drops if it lands on a corner or possibly flat on it's back. But I wouldn't test that theory.
Overall, the Gibbage line of cases for the Lumia 920 is a group of stylish, nice cases. It may not turn everyone's tractor but if you're interested, you can find all the details on ordering here at Gibbage Art or directly from Shapeways 3D Printing. Case selection varies based on inventory and run in the neighborhood of $25 and up.
