Question about Speck Fitted, FabShell and CandyShell Satin

Hey,

In a few weeks I am going to buy a iPhone 4 or 4S.
I was looking at some cases and I saw the Speck FabShell and Fitted.
They look very good, but I saw some negative reviews...
The reviews said the fabric on the back got loose and frey.
Any experience with one of these cases here?
I would like to hear if your opinions and maybe see some pictures if yours!

EDIT:
I also like the CandyShell Satin, but people are saying the rubberised layer is peeling of...
Any experiences with that one here?

Sorry for my bad English...

Thomas

Had the black satin. It peeled like crazy.

I promptly returned it. Maybe they've worked it out by now?

Sounds bad...
What case did you get after the CandyShell?

Haha. Seriously, it drives my absolutely crazy. Here are the cases I've tried thus far with my iPhone 5.

-Speck Smartflex View
-Speck Candyshell Satin
-Switcheasy Nude
-Switcheasy Tones
-$5 eBay bumper
-Pad&Quill Pocket Book
-Lifeproof Fre

At this point, I'm just considering buying insurance on the phone and going caseless. Even with insurance though...I don't want to be walking around with a scratched up phone all the time. 1st world problems...I know.

That's why I am asking these questions.
I hope to find the "perfect case" for me...

At the moment I like the CandyShell Satin, Pixelskin HD and GeoSkin.
The look of the Candyshell Satin is my favorite, it's a shame the satin finish will peel.
