    got the bumper as well - the thinnest transparent one. For $9.95 can hardly go wrong.

    I see a white one -- not a transparent one. I wonder how the white would look on the black? I think I'll hold out for an orange version -- Go Vols!

    Argh. Are there any stores that offer decent shipping to Canada? I can't even get that stupid teeny bumper shipped here! I mean seriously. SERIOUSLY.

    Anyone know the weight of the Seidio Surface case?

    I'm debating on that one but I want a LIGHTER case, not one that's heavier. =\

    I believe if you want a light cases but give tons of protection, one of those Life Proof cases should do the work. I going to get one of those so I can take underwater videos and pictures with my iPhone 5.

    Just got the black bumper. It will do until the choices are better.

    I don't want to spend $80 on a case, or have one that constricting. I would like something protective that is also not a behemoth. That's why I was looking at the Commuter or Seidio lines. I'd love some impressions on that.

    I'm just hoping for a magpul case for the iPhone 5. It's saved my 4S from numerous drops onto asphalt with no damage. It adds almost no bulk at all. To top it off it's dirt cheap. Yeah, I live them.

    Yup I did a review on them here. I just posted in the thread too...I sent them an email today asking if there are any plans for an iPhone 5 case.

    I love my commuter case and got one for my 5. Have one on my work 3GS and personal 4S. Great protection without adding too much bulk.

    I have seem some very iffy things about the commuter, primarily that it's poorly designed and doesn't last.

    My experience with my defender has, unfortunately, been the same. I've gone through about 6 defender cases with problem after problem. Worn and torn silicone, cracks in the plastic, squeaky plastic. Their customer service has been beyond fantastic and they've spent way more money on me, but I don't know if it's worth risking again. Argh.

    Never had an issue with them, but kudos for them taking care of any issues.

    I would probably consider the commuter/defender but I'm not sure I can cover the phone up. Ugh, it looks so beautiful.

    the lifeproof cases aren't actually that thick.

    I ha a life proof case and hated it. They aren't too thick at all, just the plastic screen killed the responsiveness of the touch screen so much. On top of at, they are only good for up to seven feet of water, and I couldn't even get the phone to respond while I was trying to take underwater photos. The only plus was that it truly did keep the water out, which was nice.

    I also had the e13ctron bumpers for the 4s and had only three concerns with them. First, they made the phone feel so much taller, which could actually be an issue with the elongated iphone5. Second, they offer no protection for the screen, and third, any wear and tear on them shows, as any drops shred the paint right off. The best thing about them is that I never saw anyone one else with one, so it was kinda neat having people admire them.

    But it's a lot of case, a built in screen protector, which I'm so tired of now, and weird covers for the headset and charging jacks.

    I just want the Acase. But my only option is to ship it to the states and the ship it to me, and in the end it'll cost me an extra $15 to do so. Ugh. Maybe I'll just do that.

    Yes. All the traditional case makers, plus a few new faces, will be out with iPhone 5 cases over the next few weeks. Many companies, like Otterbox, already have preorders available.

    I hope theirs another magpul case. I'm going to spend $30 on a case to use as a placeholder for a $10 case. Crazy.
