I actually do. It's really really tight if you use Sticker Boy's side wraps. I used the clear wraps from them which is awesome, and when I put it on. It felt really tight, and I wasn't digging it all that much. So i took it off, and liked the fit better without it.

Yep. Look at the pics I posted on the last page, I have a GLAS.tR with it, and it works flawlessly with it.

Awesome. Is it flush with the glas'tr or does it stop below it?

I had a wrap on my phone and installing the bumper tore it. The fit is extremely snug. Don't really see a reason that you'd need a wrap with this one anyway.

I think the glas tr is slightly raised because I have a bg pure and its perfectly flush.

Can I just point out the ridiculousness of this site's "discount" codes?

This first one is with the DH58GCGWQC code that http://chuwajapanimports.wazala.com/?page=product_det&id=114423 says to use.

This second one is with the THATTECHSHOW discount code.

Why does the shipping cost to THE SAME EXACT ADDRESS change depending on which "discount" code you use?

Idk if it's just me but I really want this bumper but idk if I can justify spending that much on a fraction of a case and on top of it the "discount" you're getting doesn't discount anything.

Should've used that coupon when I got it.. But I think the "THATTECHSHOW" coupon seems to be changing the shipping cost. It subtracts $5 more off the shipping. That's not much but still the bumper is sexy. You'll love it.

Which one are you thinking of getting?

That actually makes more sense. I've had a bit to drink so that may have just flown over my head since I tried that one first >.<

I was lusting over the black one since it seemed to be closest to keeping the phone the same aesthetically. I just really need something to cover the sides of this phone because they're already chipped just from putting a case on them.

You should try and get the metallic colors (So we could see some closeup pics!) I think they look pretty sexy. The silver one on my white iPhone looks pretty good, but I should've opt in for the Metallic colors! Too bad they were unavailable when i got mine..

I also noticed that this seller seems to be the cheapest when using the 2nd code..? Right? $57 total compared to $59 on the other seller

Thanks MarkCooz! One more question - what do you use to protect the back without covering up the Apple logo, etc? Supposedly the sheet that comes with the PS Flat Bumper is not very good (bubbles).

I personally just use Sticker Boy's skin. Top/Bottom skin and using an SGP back screen protector in Matte. Sticker Boy has tons of selections and are amazing quality. I have My Sticker Boy thread here you can check out.

Cheers! Looking forward to seeing your pictures of the bumper. Which did you pick up?

I am buying 2 PS Flat Bumpers - black for my black iPhone 5, and silver and white for my daughter's white version. Do you see any problem with fitting the Sticker-boy back skin with the Power Support Flat Bumper? I just want to make sure that the bumper will not be inteferred by the Sticker-boy skin (e.g., overlapping which may result in the bumper not sitting correctly. I will post pictures once done. Thanks again!

Can you post a close up picture of the back of your phone showing the detail of your current set up? Thanks!

I didn't have any problems using my Sticker Boy Skins for the back.. Side skins might be too snug for the bumper.. As long as you aligned it perfectly center with the middle/top/bottom skins. You Should be okay.

I can't post any other pics since my camera is in my Apartment in L.A. I'm back home with family friends for two weeks.

I found a really nice video though. Seems to be uploaded today. I've been looking for a video on this case. He seems to be rocking the same setup as I am with the GLAS.t

Although I have not received my order (on its way with tracking number), I have had a very pleasant experience dealing with Chuwajapanimports. He is extremely responsive and has gone out of his way expediting the shipment. Highlly reccommend if you need stuff from the land of the rising sun (Japan)!

I have to second this because my bumper was stuck in customs for 12 days and he was always in conact with me with regards to the progress of the order and was even aplologising for the delay even though it wasn't his fault.

Shame my experience with the bumper wasn't as good, sold it on eBay the other day. Back to the Air Jackets for me.

I agree with you. Sometimes they'll hold the package for more than a week in customs.. Which does suck a lot. But It was definitely worth the wait in my opinion. Looking forward to seeing some photos!

Is the Silver/White bumper really a white color? It doesn't look like it but if so, will it discolor you think?

The white part is actually the rubber material that serve as a lip on the case. That I think isn't even white when I first got it. It's a bit white-grey color.
If you're not too dirty i think you won't have any problems. Mine still looks pretty mint after a few drops on carpet/wood floors.
