STM Bags Opera and Harbour cases for Apple iPhone 5 (image gallery)

One great thing about iPhones is that there are a ton of accessories to choose from and it often takes a recommendation to filter out some of them. My nephew sent me info on the STM Bags cases and I found them to be a good iPhone 5 option.

The back of the retail packages describes some of the differences between the two case models.

The inside and outside of the Opera case is soft touch material. It has decent thickness to offer protection of the iPhone 5 as well.

You can see the color of the Opera case shows up around the display on the front.

The rim around the display offers some protection when you place your iPhone 5 facedown on a table.

There is a large enough opening for the camera and flash so that quality of the photos is not affected. You can also see the textured back of the case in this image.

There are openings for all ports and buttons. Here is a typical opening in the side of the case.

The STM Bags Harbour case uses a two color scheme with the same design technique as the Opera case.

To place your iPhone into the Harbour case you flip down the bottom and slide the iPhone 5 into place.

Here you can see the back of the Harbour case where the lower part flips up and shows off the two colors on the case.
