Help Looking for an iPhone 5 Bumper

I'm having the hardest time finding a bumper. I don't want no cheap one, but I also don't want an expensive one. $50 is what I'd probably spend. I have to say style is important to me. Also, the lay on the table design is a must. Just looking to buy one that'll last me till my next upgrade, which will be mid-2014....

Here are a few that I have come across:

Case Neo Hybrid EX http://www.spigen.com/cell-phone/app...slim-snow.html
What I like about this bumper is that it has a silicone cover, which will protect the sides and thats it. I feel that the outer cover will break eventually. SwitchEasy had something like this before for the iPhone 3G called Capsule Neo, but their design seems to have gone downhill for me. Are there any other 2 piece bumpers that offer silicone covers?

Blade http://g4landings.com/index.php?rout...egory&path=128
Looks awesome, would really like to try an aluminum bumper. I don't even know if I should spend this much on a bumper. I've seen the Draco case, but it looks like the front sticks out a bit.

Graci http://www.ifofi.com/graci-aluminum-...e-for-iphone-5
I'd probably buy this one, but I can't find any reviews on it.

I have a Neo Hybrid EX. I like it, but in under two months the inner silicone band stretched enough to be annoying. I had only taken it off a couple times. I took it off and let it "rest" in the box to see if it would tighten back up, but no dice. I even put it in hot water like people did with Apple bumpers to tighten them, but that didn't help. So I gave up. I don't think it's worth the price for that reason.

Spigen Linear EX Slim is a great bumper.

want a wood case?

this case is made by natural wood, not expensive, $20, see if it meets your need. it doesn't survive great bumps, but nice looking. http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Zebraw...eywords=refone

I did have the Graft with my iphone 4, but the lever fell apart within 6 months and customer service was very poor, or shall I say non existent as they never responded.

I've had mine for a month and love it.

The backplate it comes with is a little too plain for my tastes so I ordered a trunket to use in place of it.
