Get lightweight protection for your BlackBerry Z10 with the Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Case

By Adam Zeis on 27 Mar 2013 12:13 pm EDT

I have been going through cases like mad trying to find one that fits me best, and so far I've just been changing them up everyday. My current favorite is the Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Shell Case (that's a mouthful!). While is has a minimal design, it offers up great protection for those that aren't ready to use a bulkier case on the Z10. It has a simple snap-on design and fits around the sides and back of your device to keep it safe from small drops that would otherwise result in big damage.

I've always liked to go the minimal route with my cases. I don't care for the added bulk of a larger (yet safer) case most days, but I still realize that drops do happen so something is better than nothing. For that, the Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Shell Case does a great job. It doesn't add very much bulk to the Z10 at all and still has a great feel to it. 

The case snaps on quickly and has openings for all of the ports and buttons on the BlackBerry Z10. The top and bottom of the device are left open a bit but the case does cover up the corners and the back nicely. There is no "thumb gouging" (where a case digs into your thumbs while typing) which is a plus for me on this one.

I did have a bit of trouble getting it to come up around the edges of my Z10 at first, but a firm press on the back of the case gets everything where it needs to be and it holds on tight. 

I was also a bit worried at first that this case wouldn't keep my Z10 safe from accidently drops, but the design covers just enough of the corners to keep the pavement-induced divots out of mind. The Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Shell Case is also available in a variety of color and since it's easy enough to get on and off, you can change it up to your liking as you see fit.

Get lightweight protection for your BlackBerry Z10 with the Incipio Feather Ultralight Hard Case


Looks nice.
I will remain true to my flip case though. At least until I get a screen protector. I'm not risking any scratches on this lovely screen!

Just got rid of the otter box case, was $70
And it turns your z10 in to VCR. Swaped for a skin and a screen protector, much better.

I want something that has good protection, elevates the screen away from the ground if it were to hit, but not an otterbox because of the bottom bezel. An I know it works I just don't want to deal with it. Does anyone own the incipio dual pro hard case with silicone core? Or anyone on the crackberry team?

The Otter box is a poor design as it covers up the bezels and therefore makes the gestures iffy at best. A friend of mine has one. Otterbox easily could have done a much better job.

Don't think you'll find any case slim enough to fit in the OEM holster.

You could out on case and got to the store to try on some different model Android cases, but you'd like the battery saving feature.

Your best bet is Seidio Innocase Surface or Active. They are similar to this and a combo is available with a holster that does have the sleeper magnet.

Does anyone know if this case has a bit of a raised edge that would keep the screen off when placed screen side down?

For me personally I dislike this case, it looks extremely plasticy and makes the phone even more like an iphone. Dislike especially that theres no Blackberry logo preservation.

I have this case, and it survived a drop down 14 stairs. I did end up getting one small gouge on my Z10 on the bottom corner, but it survived none the less!

Looks just give me a cutout for the sweet BlackBerry logo and I would buy it!

I have the case for my iPod Touch and used to have one on my Torch 9810. Definitely sold on this product line. Looking forward to getting one for my Z10.

That might look good on the white version (I have the white one)...Any pictures with the white version possible?

I use the casemate brushed aluminum case. I think the case looks great and provides good protection for the phone but I don't like the fact that it hides the device and makes it feel bigger than it actually is. I may go case-less for a while... This incipio maybe a good alternative.

I bought, exchanged and returned this case. The material that it is made out of is not the same as the previous cases. the lip that is supposed to come up and meet the phone at the screen never sits flush and tight. It is always separated and off.

I've been eyeing this case for awhile in pink. Then I started to see the Case Mate Olo cases advertised here. When I click the ad, I get redirected to Case Mate's site and I don't see the pink one in the ad. Decisions, decisions....

I like this case and I also have the the otter box case...There is a minor adjustment with the otter box case use the tip of your thumb for the bottom bezel and you should be fine I know I spelled that wrong lol

I just got this case today, and although I love the design, I can't for the life of me get the upper right hand corner to stay clipped!

Anyone else having this issue with the black version?

If so, we're you able to do something about it?

My Z10... she travels naked I'm all her beauty! No ugly protectors. My sharp reflexes and dexterity will reduce her chances of being dropped.

Do you have any Z30 rubber cases,cause device is thin & slippery & it has dropped few times by sliding off lap or chair arm!?
