    I'll receive my first iPhone Friday (i5). I'm planning to use it naked. However, I'm a cyclist and ride with my cell phone (currently a Blackberry) in my jersey pocket. When it's likely to rain I put the phone is a plastic baggie, and then in my jersey pocket.

    However, perhaps I need something more for the iPhone 5 - maybe not. I'm thinking about some type of minimalist hardshell case - something that's easy to put the phone in and out of, waterproof, and not too bulky.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    I use it and mount it on my road bike stem and use "Cyclemeter" app as my bike computer. Perfect combo.

    Although I am not sure if they have one for the 5 yet...currently use it with my 4 but come Friday will need a bigger bag.

    Very interesting. However, I don't need the mounting hardware since I won't be using the phone as a bike computer. The visible screen is nice. However, I don't think the "touchscreen" is usable.

    Its absolutely usable.... I use it while fishing, riding, hiking, at the beach, etc. Touch screen works perfect.

    The touchscreen works through the bag? How easy is it to insert and remove the phone?
