    It's perfect if your looking for a natural looking bumper. The clear band really shows off the antenna.

    I picked up the Griffin version of this bumper a few weeks ago due to having a lucky labs spectra wrap. (no buttons, just cut outs). It works pretty good, but you'd need to be pretty careful putting it on if you have any kind of band wraps. The spectras seem to get caught and got pulled up at some parts. I've taken the bumper on and off quite a few times and it feels like the plastic on the top by the headphone jack split. Obviously these aren't meant to go on and come off so much, but figured it would hold up a little stronger. I guess being a smaller area for the plastic caused this to split. No biggie, the black outer bands hold this together well. This is a pretty sweet case and aside from the splitting issue (not really too noticeable), I'd recommend it.

    I have upgrade to the Teksure wrap ( a little thicker than the spectra), and no issues with peeling or anything, fits tight with the bumper.

    Thanks, that's good info. I want to add a skin/wrap to protect the front and back from scratches.

    I got the Griffen version as well.

    I concur with the comment about it pulling up wraps. I have a Teksure wrap on mine and I wasn't careful putting it on. Needless to say, it pulled up one of the corners.

    Also, this case did not last long at all. The silicone separated from the plastic piece in a matter of a week. I did take it off and on a few times though which I'm sure contributed to the separation.

    I'm done with silicone especially white ones.

    I've got the Scosche Bandedge, which is essentially the exact same case. It does look pretty sweet, but it too pulls up skins, and mine also left scratches on my antenna band.

    Is the edges TPU or silicone? It would be nice of it was TPU because it wouldn't warp so easy.

    That looks similar to the SWBox bumper.

    If it is the SWbox then it is TPU, much harder than silicone and does not attracts dust.

    I've never used the apple bumper so I don't know what it's made of.

    I think the edges are silicone because thay attract dust. The clear part is TPU or plastic. I'm still loving it.

    How are the buttons on this bumper?

    Are they hard to press down? The oem apple bumper buttons are great, but the 2 I've gotten off eBay from China you have to press the power button down really hard for it to work.

    their are cut-out for all the buttons, so they are easy to press.

    One of the better bumpers IMO. Slim on the sides and tight fit. Love the cut outs instead of buttons. Be careful with removing this bumper too much because the rubber started peeling away from the frame on mine. I think it would be perfect if the edges were less raised, giving it a thinner hand feel but retaining lay on the table design.

    Yep, the edges started to pull away on mine also. It's no problem, I just pushed it back down. I can't even tell what corner it was.

    Same seller I got mine from :). As for the peeling, it wasn't possible to push it back. It separated and wouldn't stick anymore.
