    What do you guys think is the best bumper on the market?

    Just bought an iPhone 4 and I had it custom made with a Red Front and White Back. I don't want a case to cover it up so I'm going with a bumper.

    I've looked around and I have a huge interest in the Case Mate Jett.

    However, the black is sold out so I'm looking around for other bumpers.

    Feel free to discuss what you think is the best bumper out right now?

    I'm mostly looking for one that has a cover for the volume/vibrate/sleep wake button.

    I have a $5 black bumper via amazon which works just fine...fake metal buttons and all. I have a Caze ThinEdge coming in that I'm excited to test out.
    If I were going to spend serious money then I'd opt for an Atomic Hybrid, no doubt. Those look very sleek --- I love how there are no screw holes staring you in the face!

    Like what?

    I was thinking of picking up the Draco IV for $70.

    That Caseless Glide also looks nice.

    Hey Map, saw your thread re: the Caze ThinEdge ... I ordered one based off of your review, thanks!

    Question: it's a firm plastic ya? When not on the phone is it light/malleable or stiff/rigid?

    Thunder, there are lots of bumpers. There is one called the e13ctron s4 hybrid. You could get a white bottom and red top which would match your phone and it shouldn't have an issue much with signal. Another one would be one by element. Vapor pro. These cost a pretty penny or two. Ranging from 50$ -150$. Ect. These are aluminum, aluminum/acetal, aluminum/plastic. Those are the two that pop up on here a lot. Here's a coupon code for e13ctron.com E1315 (15% off)

    Caze bumper. They work with my headphones. My headphones couldn't fit into the apple bumper.

    Check out the thread on the Caze bumper.

    Notice any scuffing on the metal band on iPhone when you remove bumper? Bumper looks really nice.

    I would look around a bit on the Ultra-Case. I saw a review on youtube the the volume buttons look awkwardly recessed into the case. Not impossible to get to, but annoying!

    Ultra-Case is one of those sites that sells the inexpensive cases that you see on Ebay (usu from China), but marks them up and sells through a nice looking web site. More convenient than waiting for shipping from China, but you pay for it.

    That has been my experience...

    Would that SGP case work fine with wraps on the stainless band? I have a phantom skinz on back and sides and was wondering if that bumper would ruin the side or back skins. Looks like it would be ok but would like confirmation.
