Has anyone bought this case? I'm looking to buy this case or a "pocket pouch" type case with one of the "fully body" films like Body Guardz or Invisible Shield.

If you have any information on the Incipio Executive OVRMLD, could you please post a review and pictures?

I don't know abou that particular case but I recently ordered the Incipio SILICRYLIC case and its one of the worst I've tried so far. On the site it looks like its a molded rubber case, however its really just a thin piece of rubber that loosely fits around the phone and then has to be held in place by a huge plastic piece. Its definitely one of the more poor designs I have seen thus far.

Yeah, the design of the OVMLD is great. I love that it covers all 4 corners and still gives accessibility, but I do question its quality.

Anyone know if this case will fit into the Case-mate holster? I like that it provides more protection than the CM Signature and that the chrome is fully covered. Is there a gaping hole if the beltclip nub is removed? How well does the case stay together.

Looks like the inside of the case is bare plastic. I wonder if this will cause scratches like some of the acrylic cases? I like the design and the price of this case, but I'm hesitant to pick it up based on what I've read about the company and their products.

My OVRMLD came in today, and I am unsure if I will keep it. The stitching and overall build quality are not what they should be for a $30 case. However, the leather does feel nice in my hand, and the case seems to hold together well. I do like that the case is lined with a soft silicone like material.

Thanks for the pictures. It's interesting that there's a silicon liner. I don't think I'll get one, there will be the perfect case someday.

I purchased this case and like it quite a bit. It offers good protection and mine seems to be made quite well. As a side note, the previous poster who posted pics of this case and stated he was not impressed with the quality may have gotten an early version of the case...mine was held up for delivery because of last minute refinements. I happen to like swivle clips and this case has a pretty good one. I do have two small complaints regarding this clip and they are kind of related to each other. It has a ratcheting clip that is accomplished with an addition nub that holds it in position. I do not like this for two reasons, the phone ends up in weird positions somtimes on my belt and the extra pressure an tension that the extra nub produced, causes the swivle clip post to come loose from the case. My phone actually fell off in the gracery store. I found an easy way to modify the clip however and reattached it and it is now better than ever. I would be happy to help talk anyone through modifying theirs in the same way.

Prior to this I had the CaseMate case and it was ok except that the "ears" at the top would always catche on stuff.

I also have a krussel case on order and it should come soon so I will be curious how that is, as krussel has always made good cases.

Thank you for posting your experience with the OVRMLD. I am glad to hear that there are better versions of this case available, as the overall design concept is great. Maybe I should see if they will do an exchange for me...

Does the case say shut well? Do you still question the build quaility?

Mine just arrived in the mail...seems like a good case...but how the hell do you get the nub off....I tired to unscrew it with a eyeglass screw driver...but it was screwed in so tight....the screwdriver broke...lol

Hey drconehead2000,

You must be using a lot of force in taking that screw out, LOL.

I think you may want to use a bigger screw driver than an eyeglass size one.

I've attached two images that shows the size screw driver that i've used.

However, we do not suggest taking off the hinge. We offer lifetime warranty on our cases and by taking off the hinge which in a way is modifying a case, will break the warranty. If you have any more questions about our warranty, please do not hesitate to call us.

Has anyone bought the chocolate brown one? I like the way it looks on the everything iPhone store, but I went to the Incipio website and it looked like a much lighter brown...

As I posted earlier, I really like this case as it offers very good protection. The only problem I have had is that the hinge post fell off of mine while in use resulting in my iPhone dropping to the ground. The design of the swivel clip is the root cause of this in my opinion. The ratcheting design puts extra stress on the post and eventually loosens it from the case. I found a way to modify my swivel clip so that it wouldn't ratchet and ended up reattaching the post with super glue and threadlock and everything is great now. Incipio, since you are watching this thread, please take note of my experience...I would eliminate that ratcheting in the clip or at least make it a lot more free moving.

Ok, the modifications I made are not really ohoto worthy. First off, I had to reattach the post on the back of the case. This was done with a combination of superglue and treadlock...solid now. The more important modification was to remove the little ratcheting nu that is incorporated into the removable clip itself. In order to do this, I had to pry open the clip just enough for the spring loaded 'catch' to fall out. There are two 'nubs' on this part, one latches into the center of the post itself and the smaller one pops into the indexing holes on the post. I feel that this is the one that caused my post to come loose in the first place as it is so tight that the phone, while in the case, cannot swivel freely and there is constant lateral pressure transferred to the post. Anyways, once I got that two nubbed part out of the clip, I simply cut off the one indexing nub with a razor knofe, reassembled the clip and presto, 360 degrees of free, smooth ratcheting-less swivel. I am confident that this case will now serve me well for quite a while.
