Any insights?
It won't be bulky at all with the GLAS.tR it's the perfect combo actually.
I watched a video from a few pages back. Here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvs6D_Y3ycY
I believe it's the GLAS.tR that he has on his iPhone..?

Thanks for linking, that was helpful. I had just received my bumper today but I'm still waiting on my SPG glas.tr which will be arriving tomorrow I'm assuming.

I'm liking this bumper so far, I already have it on and idk if I just got lucky with this one or maybe they had already fixed previous issues but I don't seem to have any issues with the power button nor do I have any issues with the volume rockers. The power button is definitely perfectly responsive and gives me a great feedback and even has a click to it whenever I press on it. Solid bumper case, definitely the best one I've ever had so far.

I give a second chance to the bumper, and i bought another one. Yesterday I received it and i had again the same problem, a small loose on the bottom and on the left side, exactly the same issue that I had with my first purchase, so now, I can confirm that I dont like at all this bumper. Not to mention that the silicon part came both times with a lot of scratches, and it wasnt a problem of my two bumpers, its a problem of the material is made.
So I am very dissapointed.

Thanks for sharing.

Im using Spigen Slim Armor Case but adds a lot of weight and its too bulky.

So, right know, Im between this 3 bumpers:
- Caze ThinEdge Matte frame 14.50
- Spigen Case Neo Hybrid EX Slim Metal 25
- Power Support Flat Bumper 27

I heard good feedback from Caze ThinEdge.

I had all of them, my thin edge fitted perfect and was good quality but i got tired of the red clip, I didnt like it, I dont know why they dont make a black clip jaja.
The neo hybrid is a good case, fits very well too but is the bulkiest of the three, but i like it very much.
And you know my opinion of the PS..

Exactly my thoughts.

The Spigen Bumper is almost identical to the Armor Case without the back cover.

I like the ThinEdge Case, except the dented clip system, its also the cheapest of all three.

Of all three, whats the bumper you use most of the time?

Mmmm, the PS both times that i bought it, i used it less than a day.. I think that the one that I liked more was the neo hybrid slim, but I dont recommend you to buy the soul black beacuse its very shiny and makes the phone look like a cheap phone, now I am waiting for the metal slate, so, In my opinion, the SGP is the best.

I've been very happy with the Caze thinedge. Other than the fact that the microusb/lightning adapter won't fit, it is perfect. Until I mod the case I just use the original lightning cable.

My PS flat bumper has been holding up great. No discoloration. I dropped it a few times, one time on some rough concrete and it held up great, no marks or dents on the bumper and luckily the back/front of the iphone was not harmed.

The looks of this bumper with the iphone looks very nice and sleek, very professional.

Cost not so good but worth it for me.

Has anyone from Canada tried picking this up at Pacific Mall? I wonder if there is a vender there who sells it.

Amazon doesn't ship this item to Canada, only within US..

Update on the Power Support.

Been using it since mid February and it just broke today. The plastic snapped at the headphone jack when taking it off to clean (I do this every 1-2 weeks). I was thinking about replacing it anyways since the last couple weeks the rubber looks like it has started to seperate at the headphone jack. Overall it has held up fine until this point though. I have dropped it once onto cement about a 2 months ago with almost no damage (just some light scratches on the plastic).

Don't think I am going to purchase it again. Not really the fault of the bumper (although I would have expected it to last longer for the price) but more that I want to try something new. Already have the Caze Thinedge to hold me over while searching.

Glad I saw this comment. The fragility of the headphone jack area was my first concern when I saw the bumper. For the price they're charging, there's no way I want something that fragile. Looks great though.

I have had this bumper long and had no issues, perfect since day 1. I take mine off every other day for cleaning, and no snaps.
