In a nutshell, Bumpies are four plastic-like protectors for each corner of your iPhone. They exceed military specs for shock.
The bonding is very tight but are east to remove if necessary. Once removed they can not be reused.
They come in black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, red, white, and yellow. The MSRP is US $24.00. Shipping is free if two or more sets are ordered, and they offer a replacement warranty for two years from date of purchase.
Getting Down To It
I have reviewed similar products in the past and they all had two problems. They were hard to place in the correct spot, and they did’t stay on through daily use. I am happy to report that I found neither of these problems to exist with the Bumpies I tested.
The packaging includes a unique system that allows you to place them in exactly the right spot. The packaging includes a sleeve that allows you to align your phone perfectly.
Once it is aligned it is a simple matter to remove the backing and place the Bumpies on each of the four corners. The whole process takes less than a minute.
When the Bumpies are in place, you flip the sleeve over and open it up by removing the tab that holds it together.
I carried my phone, wearing the Bumpies, around in my pocket and purse for ten days. They worked perfectly. Even if you grab one and try to move it around, it won’t move and yet, I purposely removed them by simply inserting my thumb nail under one edge and raising it up. There was no residue left on my phone. It reminded me of removing those wall hangers that are made by 3M that hold all kinds of things, yet can be pulled off the wall, leaving no marks.
This kind of protection is not for everyone, but anyone who likes it will do well to look at the Bumpies.
