Minimalist Case Recommendations?
I used a bumper with my iPhone 4 and really liked it, but Apple isn't making a bumper for the iPhone 5. I saw that another company was making a bumper, but I don't think I want a bumper this time anyway.
Any recommendations for a minimalist case worthy of this slim sexy beast of an iPhone?

Either the case mate or maybe something by Speck. Their i5 cases became available this morning. Unfortunately the color I want isn't available until a 1 or 1.5 months later though.Twitter & Instagram = @billiber

I went to Best Buy earlier and picked up a clear TPU case made by Rocket Fish for about 20 bucks .. You can barely tell it's on there because it's crystal clear, still shows the device beautifully, and it protects well from surface scratches."It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle

with the iphone 5 being so thin to start off with, i decided to get a "maximalist" case - otterbox defender... after going naked with my iphones since the original, through to my 4S, I'm going the pu$$y route with my 5, and protecting it to the max so I can sell it with nary a scratch next year... something I wish I could say for my 4S, but it's got "signs of use"...
the iphone 5 defender case isn't as obnoxiously thick as previous iphone cases thanks to the 5 being SOOOO thin to start off with...

I got the speck products candyshell matte finish case in black. its thin yet covers the top/bottom better. I have had the Case-Mate breathe minimalist case on my iP4S and did not care for it, first no top or bottom protection and worse was all the dirt that came through the tiny holes on the back. Fortunately I put a screen protector on it and kept it looking like new.
