    So I saw 2 great screen protectors but I'm going to wait to see what they look like (a YouTube video review from a buyer on this website would be awesome) before I buy one.

    I love my Incipio Feather and now there are 2 versions of it for the iPhone 5.

    The Feather Shine

    The Feather

    I can't really tell the difference between the two but the finish on the Feather Shine looks better. They're shipping on the 21st so let's make this the official thread and keep it updated.

    In case you're wondering, I bought this cheap bumper off Amazon to hold me over and it arrives in 3 days. I'll post picture of what it looks like when I get it.

    The dualpro one looks nice I think. Is there enough protection with the feather?

    I saw a Amazon review on the Galaxy S3 version say that the Feather Shine killed their wifi when in use. It could of easily been a fake review to discredit incipio but who knows. Does anyone else have any experience with this case?

    Yeah any other reviews for other cases that are similar would be good...but if anyone orders one of these things post a review...

    Just ordered the Feather Shine, I like the idea of brushed Metal. Been using a Feather on my 4s and love it.

    If you did the black one would you mind posting a video/pictures of it after you get both your case and phone?

    I did get the black one and will be happy to post pics once I have everything. Based on my order status at Apple it may be a few weeks however.

    Just picked up the Feather for my incoming iPhone 5. Incipio makes great stuff, and I've been more than thrilled with their back protection for the iPad 3.

    I could take some pics when everything comes in if I remember. I have a 9/21 arrival on the phone with a USPS shipment of 5-7 days that I hope goes faster.

    Anyone have any discount codes for Incipio to sweeten the deal? I tried googling but all the ones I found were expired already.

    Great...yeah if you could just post pictures of each case...they both look great but I can't really tell the difference between the Feather and Feather Shine.

    I picked up an Incipio feather in black (my go-to for iPhones). Will post up pics as well. The Shine version looks real nice but I was afraid the back would get all scratched up.

    The price is right and it looks every bit as good as my Incipio, so I placed my order this afternoon. It has already been shipped! I'll have it before my phone arrives.

    Yea post any pics/vis of that one too...it looks nice but I'm not a huge fan of 2 piece cases because I'm always afraid it'll detach or something. But it looks like it covers the front better.

    I wasn't in love with the idea of a two piece case, but I have the Incipio Edge Pro and I really like it. Nice protection and it never EVER feels like it is going to come off. The Casecrown looks about the same and since they are shipping already I decided to give it a shot.

    The Casecrown cases are also on Amazon - in stock and less expensive.

    I preordered their "Kicksnap" case... having a built in kickstand comes in handy to me, and I won't mind the extra 2mm depth (over their "feather" case).

    THat actually looks really nice...my concern is making sure the kick stand snaps and place and doesn't come lose...A picture/video on that would be awesome too!!! I went through and bought like 4 cases with my 4S so this time I'm not gonna pull the trigger until I know what (I think) I like lol

    I'm VERY interested in either the Duo Shine or the Feather Shine...it's metallic in color ONLY but it's a substance that is made of polycarbonate. If you look on the site it says clear as day..."this item is radio translucent".
