    The quest for the perfect case, I know you guys have been there and I hope you can help:

    I used to have a case called the Belkin Grip Vue for my iPhone 4S and wanted the exact same thing for my iPhone 5. I saw a video review on YouTube less than a year old for a case called the Belkin Sheer Grip which is essentially the same thing Glossy Transparent Smoke TPU case. I can't seem to find it Belkin's website, was this discontinued? if so can any1 recommend any high end transparent TPU cases with a glossy finish in black? not the ones that eBay or Amazon sell for $3. Any help would be gladly appreciated.

    thanks for the reply but... I think you may have mistakenly suggested an incorrect case or perhaps didn't read my post... wrong thread even?

    I need:
    1. an iphone 5 case
    2. made from TPU
    3. in translucent black or smoke color
    4. not cheaply made
    5. similar or comparable to Belkin's Gripvue case for the iPhone 4/4S

    LOL! I can't tell if this guy is giving you iPhone 4/4S cases on purpose or not.

    But this is the case you're looking for. http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F8W138

    It's cheaper on Amazon, of course. And in my opinion, this is the BEST TPU case for the iPhone 5. Nothing comes close as far as TPU goes.

    Im sorry for not reading the thread correctly. I saw iPhone 4S and when i opened the thread up i was set on iphone 4S cases. My bad. Here is the case you are most likely looking for the iPhone 5:
    Belkin Grip Candy Sheer Case / Cover for Apple iPhone 5 (Black / Gray)
    http://amzn.com/B009KY45FI

    This one is a little cheaper than the one on belkins website. BTW

    thanks to both for your suggestions but this is where it gets tricky, the Belkin Gripvue for iPhone 4/4S was a Glossy Tacky TPU material the Belkin Gripcandy Sheer that you both suggested has a satin matte finish, unless I'm wrong which in that case I would like to know. there is however case called the Sheer Grip by Belkin which doesn't appear on their website that appears to be Glossy TPU in black from a video I saw on YouTube

    I googled the Grip Vue for the 4/4S, and it looks like a clear TPU case. Belkin doesn't have this for the iPhone 5, but if you want a similar case, you may want to look into the Speck GemShell.

    http://www.speckproducts.com/gemshell-for-iphone-5.html

    Then I further researched your "Grip Sheer" case and saw the videos. This appears to be the case your referring to, and it seems like this is the only place to get it.

    Hit the nail in the head... thanks for all the responses, I will try and purchase it because I really like that case and it seems it was discontinued from the Belkin website. Also thanks for suggesting the Speck case I will look into that also. The GripCandy is a very nice case but I don't want the satin matte finish I wan a grippy high gloss finish and that's what mobile phone sells, I just found a seller on Amazon also from the UK selling the same one. Wil give it a shot. Thanks again to everyone that contributed.
