Clear iPhone 5 Case ?

Looking for a clear Iphone 5 case. I recently got the Zum Gelee for my iPhone 4 and it's pretty nice. Anything similar available for the 5 that's available before next Friday?

I'm considering going with a total body skin instead of a case this time but not sure I want to risk having no drop protection at all.

Got to admit that case in the ebay link looks pretty awesome as a temp case. Might have to order one while I wait for Spigen to get their clear ultra thin cases in stock.

Purchased this one for $4.99. Set comes with Clear, Gray, and 2 screen protectors. I guess this will do for the meantime.

Thinking of getting more and selling at Craigslist since they are so cheap!

USA Seller. This will do for the meantime. I got it when it was 4 bucks. I've notice prices are going up because of the high demand.

This for a temp until I see what Speck offers. I like the grippy texture on the sides.

Corey, Thanks for the heads up regarding this clear tpu case.
The eBay vendor's located only 40 miles from where I live so pretty sure it'll arrive ahead of my iPhone5's scheduled arrival day (Fri: 9/21).

I too plan to simply utilize this as a temp. inexpensive case
until more new iPhone5 cases are available plus garner impressive reviews as well.
btw: I ordered the black 64GB iPhone5 from Verizon, so looking forward to discovering how a 'clear' tpu case will look on a black phone. Anybody else got this combination?

Those tiny bottles of wine are what sold me! Either way looks like a good temporary case and ships from within the US. Bought a clear one for me.

Good find! I live in KY, and even from CA it should arrive by Thursday. The only thing that sucks about the case is that it doesn't have a wide enough opening at the bottom for the 30-pin adapter.

Yeah, I bought that case also. I'll see if this works good with the SGP screen protector.

Best Buy will be carrying an all clear TPU case made by Rocketfish on Friday. My local store showed it to me today and it looked and felt awesome. Says most stores got at least 10 of them in. $25.

IPhone 5 has many similarity as IPhone 4. Excellent features, stylish and highly produced, especially by Apple.

I had the ultraclear version of this on my 4S. It's super thin (if you want fall protection, look at other cases) and comes with screen protectors and connector covers.
