Mous Limitless 2.0 iPhone Case review: classy and tough

Mous put a lot of thought into their cases, in order to make them super protective without being overly bulky. Yet they put just as much attention into the aesthetic. The Limitless 2.0 is an elegant and attractive case that comes in a variety of cool materials like leather, wood, and shell.

The Good

  • Very protective
  • Dressy and stylish  
  • Upscale and unusual materials
  • Not extremely bulky
  • Comes with screen protector
  • Magnetic accessory attachment

The Bad

  • Pretty pricey

Classy and protective

Mous Limitless 2.0 iPhone Case: What I like

Mous' patented AiroShock™ dampens the impact of drops while providing extra grip to the phone. The case is constructed from rigid plastic, actually a mix of polycarbonate and TPU, except for the design panel embedded on the back. The inside of the case has molded spots where you can store a SIM card and a SIM ejector tool.

There is a substantial lip higher than the screen, so if you place (or drop) your phone face now, the screen won't contact the surface. The camera, Lightning port, mute switch, and speakers are all fully accessible via precision cut-outs. All of the buttons have covers and are fully functional.

This is a case you'd feel comfortable taking on an outdoor adventure as well as into the executive boardroom. It's incredibly classy-looking and comes in some cool materials. The design panel embedded on the back is made from gorgeous genuine materials, not plastic lookalikes. You can choose from Aramid Carbon Fibre, Walnut, Leather (black), Bamboo, and Shell. You can see the Walnut, Leather, and Shell cases in my photos.

A nice little bonus: there are magnets embedded into the case, so if you wish to place one of their card wallets on the back of your phone, or mount it to their car vent mount, you don't need any adhesive. The magnets are used instead of anything sticky.

Fairly pricey

Mous Limitless 2.0 iPhone Case: What I don't like

Well, these aren't cheap cases. My only other minor complaint is that because they are so rigid, they are not super easy to take on and off the phone. It's also somewhat heavy, but then my own tastes run to the ultra-light.

Stylish protection

Mous Limitless 2.0 iPhone Case: Bottom line

Mous Limitless 2.0 iPhone Case is a classy, dressy, and stylish case that doesn't skimp on protectiveness. Thoughtful touches such as embedded magnets for accessory attachments, genuine design panel materials, SIM card/tool storage, and an included screen protector help make this a stand-out case.
