    Now this might be the best iPhone case/bumper of all!

    I really like how tight the fit is.

    Larry found a winner with no reception issues.

    Big question, is it grippy/tacky on a surface. In other words, if I lie flat on a include will it grip or slide.

    After watching the video I went ahead and placed an order for this bumper. I was definitely sold on it. Looks like it could definitely be one of the best we've seen yet.

    Good for protection, I guess, but probably the ugliest bumper case I've seen. Had it been a little more rounded like the :apple: bumper then it probably would've been OK. Also, would prefer some raised buttons or something for the volume/sliders buttons instead of big cutouts. With a retooling of the design then this might be nice to have but, as is, I wouldn't get it.

    I've never seen more people concerned about how the cases for a phone looks as oppose to how it protects the phone :rolleyes:

    better still, why don't you just keep your phone taped inside a cinder block. because that's what that thing looks like.

    Matter of opinion. For me it's protection over looks.

    Looks very similar to Tech21's iBand case (still not released after numerous delays). The impact band looks good in terms of protection but too thick looking.

    at first that was my opinion as well, until i realized that wrapping your phone in something that makes it unenjoyable to use defeats the entire purpose. but that's a matter of opinion.

    Larry seemed to still enjoy his iPhone based on the video. I could be wrong. I think sometimes, myself included, we get wrapped up in how a phone looks instead of the main purpose of the phone and that's to call, text, etc. I'll report back after I receive mine. I'm waiting on my Candyshell and this now to come.

    i agree. i personally wanted protection over looks, and then i remember 1 of the main reasons i wanted the iphone in the 1st place was due to its slimness. i hate having something big and bulky in my pocket all day. and that's why i scrapped the idea of something protective for something minimal like the apple bumper.

    I'm the complete opposite. I prefer for my phone to be hefty, but not too hefty like the Otterbox Defender. I usually carry my phones in a holster so the pocket action doesn't bother me at all. I'm rocking my i4 caseless now until I receive my other cases and I don't like it personally.

    impactband

    anyone picked this up?

    it looks kinda ugly but it seems to be pretty good protection and not as ugly looking as other 'protection' cases. Also only like 20 bucks.

    Wow the front lip is way to big. That would bug the hell out of me for playing games on the iPhone.

    ya, but reviews say it grips well for games and stuff. Might just pick one up cuz its amazon prime-able. Hope my makeshift iphone dock will work with it.
