Price Value QualityAfter a few months the fabric starts to peels off. If you put it in your pocket/car on a hot day it will peel even faster. I've glued the sides but now the back is peeling as well.
Fabric peels away

Price Value QualityFollowing issues with a Speck CandyShell where the weak point between the dock connector and home button broke after only 5 months normal use I purchased a FabShell Burton Hex for my iPhone 4S in June 2012. As of January 2013, the fabric around the sides of the case started peeling away from the middle bonding layer. Looking front on, the left hand side has complely fallen off and the right hand side is suffering the same fate.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend eiether of these cases as I would not purchase them again. Although they look nice, they are just not up to the job.

Quality Price ValueGot mine in the Grey Toke Plaid in November 2011. It's been in constant use since then, and I haven't had any issues with the fabric peeling off at all. Also, it started to get pretty dirty, so a couple weeks ago I figured I'd just remove it and scrub it to see what happened. Lo and behold, it came out sparkling clean and like brand new - yay! I just used my kitchen dish brush and a bit of dish soap and warm water. 10 seconds of a light scrubbing and it was back to new. I just let it dry overnight and popped it back on the next morning. This case is worth every penny.

Quality Price ValueLooks great for about a month then the fabric peels off. Then your left with this sticky mess that collects dirt. Pick something else.
Good case, Poor quality

Quality Price ValueThis case is great for protection, and can easily be removed but my case has since peeled off on the sides. Paying that much money for a case for me to have to glue the sides back on is not worth it. Now it looks trashy. I'm just waiting for the back to peel. I've always bought speck but after this mess my next case will be by another company...
Function and Form (For a While)

Quality Price ValueThis guy protected several falls to the concrete for my iPhone 4s. I have no beef with the primary function, that's for sure! The buttons were always a little stiff for my taste.
As for the form... it was fab for a while. Then, like others, the peeling began. No I plan on getting a new, non-fabshell case for my iPhone.

Quality Price ValueI've had this case for about 6 months, and it's the best case I've had for my iPhone yet. Sure, the stickers might peel off, but that's nothing some glue can't fix. There's been nothing wrong protection-wise, which is what I was really looking for, as I'm pretty clumsy and drop my phone often. I've dropped it numerous times since I've had the case, and not a single scratch has ended up on my phone. The Burton name and design is just an added bonus, even if I do have to use a little glue.

Price Value QualityThis case doesn't fit my phone - it's like the case is bent. One corner of my phone sticks out. I recommend the fitted two-piece cases over this one piece.

Price Value QualityI got my case for Christmas, LOVED it and was totally satisfied. After working all summer, the beautiful, subtle design started literally peeling off. First the sides, then the entire back just came off. I could have glued it back on, but was disappointed nonetheless. I'd get another speck, but not this kind, which is a bummer because they're the best looking ones.
Best case I have bought

Value Quality PriceWhen I saw the "Low Ride Plaid" I knew I wanted it. I got it for christmas and its now August and I am still using it. The case is light, slightly bulky, but still protects really well. The two problems I have are: the words that say "Burton - Speck" on the side are starting to peel & the case is starting to get dirty; because it's fabric obviously its going to start to discolor from being touched so much. Overall though, I am very satisfied with this case and I would definitely buy one again.
