Has anyone seen these cases? I definitely like the idea of a bumper style case that's also waterproof and has great drop protection.

Looks cool, but $100 for a case? Rather spend $100 on AppleCare and get a good case...

Pretty excessive. You'll have to sacrifice wide headphone and charger port compatibility, not to mention I'd bet the speaker will be extra muffled with that case on

Very true on both cases.

My view on it is to replace a future lifeproof case. They're great but the seals needs to be extra clean and it seems like it wears and tears fast. My ip5 nuud case let in some water while I was taking some quick underwater shots. It was tested few weeks ago with the plastic phone so I'm not too sure what happened.

Anyway I'm moving to Miami soon and I figured a case like this would be much better for those beach/pool days. It would not be my everyday case so the speaker and charging port wouldn't be too big of a problem. Hopefully some reviews come out once they are released.

I bought one of these on kickstarter,

they don't work!! don't buy (if you think it will be waterproof), it will not seal at all

Yeah it is definitely seems like a scenario-based case--only to be used when needed.

Great feedback! Can you elaborate a bit more on your overall experience?
