Back Protector that fits iPhone 5 - Sector 5 Case

Hi everyone, I'm new here so please excuse me if this has been covered before but I did some searching and could not find what I am looking for.

I have a black Sector 5 standard edition (http://www.elementcase.com/Sector-5-...Case-a/302.htm) on its way and I wanted to get some front and back protectors for the iPhone while it is in the case. (The ultrasuede back just isnt my thing)

My plan for the front is the Spigen GLAS.tr (http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/app...ss-series.html). There was a post here showing that it will work with the Sector 5 case. (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthre...457484&page=10).

The back is where I could use some help. I would like it to be clear and protect the aluminum from any scratches and fit in the Sector 5 case. The options I am considering are:

1. Spigen Steinheil Ultra Crystal Mix (Front & Back) - http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/app...ystal-mix.html

2. Zagg Invisible SHIELD
http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/...FcRU4AodangADA

Anyone have any experience with either? One better than the other? Do you think they will both fit with the Sector 5?

Thank you in advance for your help.
-Ryan

Both will work, though I'd suggest the SGP / spigen protector over the Zagg, can't stand them personally.

You also have the option of a rear skin like those from The Lucky Labs (which is always my personal preference)

Out of the choice you gave, SGP. But I would go with a wet apply back to avoid bubbling around the raised logos. Even better, go for a back skin from sticker boy or the lucky labs.

I am open to more than just the two back protectors I mentioned, those were just the two I know about? What are some examples of wet application protectors? Thanks again for the help.

The camera lens is a sapphire crystal .. where did you read that the front panel was sapphire because it's definitely not afaik..

Front glass is Gorilla Glass 2, supposedly %20 percent stronger then the original, as claimed by the manufacturer, but i've seen people break the front glass already so its still breakable.
