I was just wondering if I should get a case or skin for the iPhone 5. I want to retain the thinness of the phone but still want to add protection. I know cases will certainly protect it, but I really like the feel of the phone naked.

Has anyone had any experience with either the Bodyguardz or wrapsol full body protection kits? I was thinking of getting the Bodyguardz Pure with either a bodyguardz side and back or Candyshell Satin. How well do the bodyguardz protect without cases, just alone? What about Wrapsol? If they protect well enough I won't even a case

Thanks

I have wrapsol on my MacBook and iPad. I preordered for my iPhone 5 and nano. I used bodyguardz before but I like the finish of wrapsol better. Replacement is easy just have to pay for shipping. For now I have cellairis that I like while I'm waiting for my wrapsol.

Thanks! Have you used with just the protectors and no case at all?

For the iPhone I would probably use a case not unless it'll cover the bezel which I doubt. I was able to use no case with my iPad but I have to put the smart case when I am watching so I don't have to hold it. My MacBook just have the wrapsol no case for it.
