    I was always a fan of the Incipio feather.

    It is available for pre-order (if not in stock already as of today)

    I've ordered a few from Amazon to try out. These are the slimmest I could find (at least until the Desmay Slight 5 comes out).

    1. Apple iPhone 5 Ringke SLIM Soft Feeling Premium Hard Case : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B00993E8B6&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    2. Anker Glaze Case for iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B008WXM43S&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    3. Photive Natural Slim Fit Case for Apple iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B0097BZNPK&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    4. AViiQ Thin Series iPhone 5 Case (sold out :(): http://www.aviiq.com/collections/iphone/products/thin-series-iphone-5-case

    5. Slim Hard Plastic Snap-On Matte Back Case for new iPhone5 5TH GEN (this one is the closest I could find to the Desmay Slight): http://www.ebay.com/itm/230851440663

    --

    First impressions:

    1. Not bad, not as thin as the Desmay Slight (the iPhone 4S version). This one's a "soft finish" or rubbery feel. There's also a non-rubbery one.

    2. Meh. TPU case paired with a plastic bumper. I wouldn't consider this one slim at all.

    3. I like. Reminds me of the Case-Mate Barely There series.

    4. [sold out]

    5. The closest I could get to an official Desmay Slight. This very well might be what Desmay will release.

    Photive Natural Slim is an excellent snap-on case.

    That said, I switched it out for a Poetic Atmosphere which is also quite thin but considerably more protective.

    I bought the Case-mate which is thin and looks great. It is made from smoked plastic and also, apparently, made from recycled soda bottles, which makes me think I may have over paid.

    I had the white one for my 4S and the case was very thin and made pretty well. Unfortunately I must have purchased it before it was actually ready for prime time as the case wasn't aligned with the side buttons. The other part that I wasn't crazy about was that the sides really didn't even come up over the bezel. Can't tell by their photos.

    Incipio Frequency is excellent. It's sleek, adds nearly no bulk and looks better in person than photos.
