    Now that looks cool. I hope they'll make those for the iPhone 6. I'm definitely going to want one. On my 5s, I'm pretty happy with my Otterbox Defender case.

    I'm the same way, been using Lifeproof for sometime they are great for protection. It's just the 5s is an awesome looking phone hated hiding it in that case. This case is pretty good, solid without taking away from the looks to much.

    I'm an Otterbox man. They're all I've ever used. Always the Defender. But I may try the waterproof Otterbox Preserver. It's supposed to be great.

    Otterbox Defender. I'm afraid to use anything else.

    My heavy duty case is the lunatik taktik strike. Think otterbox but more stylish IMO.

    The apple leather cases are nice but it will wear and get dirty giving it a distressed look. Not everybody is into that.

    I recommend both.

    I'm a big fan of the tech 21 impact cases. They have a band of D30 around the edge if you drop your phone with no adverse issues.
    The tech21 impact band was suggested by Apple rep at store when I purchased 5s on first day last September. He had been using it on his phone. It is very grippy, yet minimalistic. I use the back clear panel it came with and have dropped the phone twice. It hit the corner and suffered zero damage. Am very satisfied, as the impact absorption really seems to work. I didn't want a full case, yet found the phone rather slippery, naked. Tech21 has worked for me.

    Still waiting on my Spigen bumper to show up. In the meanwhile I'm using this bumper.

    tavik outer edge bumper case black/charcoal - Style # TVK-IPH-039, TAVIK | iphone 5/5s cases | Modern Beach Culture

    I like it. Just that the power button is hard to push down on.

    I love the look of the Tech 21 cases but they don't work with any of the tempered glass screen protectors I've tried or currently use...so it had to go back. It caused them to peel.

    I have just moved to Otterbox Symmetry and truly like its combination of slimness and sturdy build. While the Defender may offer a bit more solid protection, right now the Symmetry is a pleasure to use...and simply feels good when holding my iPhone 5s.

    I like the Spigen Slim Armor or the Lunatik Seismik case. Both are pretty thin but provide some protection.

    I am currently moving between 3 cases: the Speck SmartFlex Card, Incipio Stanley Highwire, and the LifeProof Nuud. Speck and Incipio are my dailies and the LifeProof is only if I know I'm going to be out in rain because people say they can't hear during calls with the LifeProof. Really liking the Speck because it gives the feel of the curved back of a Mophie without the weight of a battery case.

    I'm a fan of the Seidio DILEX w/kickstand. Used them on 7 different devices now. It does add some thickness but it provides great protection.

    -Otterbox for bulky drop protection

    -Life proof for water and dust protection

    - apple leather case for professional looking with a bit of scratch protection for the sides and back

    Notable others: speck, spigen, case mate.

    There are so many cases to chose from and that I have used over the years. Personally now I buy the apple care and go without a case unless I'm in a very vulnerable area in which I use the otterbox defender.
