    I think its similar enough to the reveal etch I got. Yes it fits well with a decal underneath.

    Judging by the description on the website it seems like it's a hybrid slider/bumper.

    got one and now returning it

    wont buy again from griffin.. Got that case.. overall OK looking case but destroyed my skin protection.. there is no way to slide it over any of the screen protectors.. all got bubble up and was useless.. just not enough space between lip and phone.. plus there is no cushion inside the frame.. bare plastic.. to risky to have the phone scratch etc..

    I made the mistake of buying this also.

    As stated, will not fit over any type of skin without destroying it. The sides have give. To get the bottom portion off to dock it, you basically have to pull from the top piece and then it all comes apart any way.

    I'd give it a 1.5 (generous) out of 10.

    Going back ASAP.

    I've had the black leather skin guard the past couple months and it worked out for me until I decided to try out new cases. It was thick enough to protect my i4 from barriers, and I loved the texture of the leather skin.

    But from the comments below, I sense that the people didn't have great experiences with the Griffin cases.

    Went with Incipio NgP from walmart and loving it every day. My griffin is traveling back to Nashville, TN.

    Well, I have several.

    Naked with my Sena Laterale.

    Incipio Feather with Seideo clip.

    SGP leather grip case pocketed or in a leather belt case.

    Depends if work takes me to the office or job site. The feather works when I go golfing and want to remove it to attach to RAM mount on cart to use Golfshot GPS app.

    And I'm slightly out of my mind trying to find the 'perfect' case. :D

    I personally don't like those slider on type cases, they always fail and mess up my screen protector in some way, I'll pass on this case.

    agreed, would have been nice if this was a two piece snap instead of slide like the elan form case
