    Can anyone suggest a rugged iPhone 6 Plus case that does NOT have a built in screen cover?

    Thanks for any info!

    How about one with Apple logo cutout?

    I use the Supcase Unicorn Beetle PRO Series. Yes it comes with a built in screen protector but it can easily be removed and the top still sits nice and flush on the screen. I removed mine after the first day and love it. The case is also nice and thin. You can't beat the price on Amazon.

    Pelican makes two:

    The Voyager is the more rugged one with port covers, and comes with a holster. http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail_mobile_devices.php?Case=C07030

    The Protector is only slightly less rugged, no holster. http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail_mobile_devices.php?Case=C07000

    Spigen makes the Tough Armor, that's the one I have currently. Honestly I think the Pelican Protector is a better case, but I didn't get it because the silicone that surrounds the phone is grey, and I find it distracting. The Spigen is good, but has less lip. The stand is pretty flimsy plastic.. I don't use it.

    I have the Spegin Tough Armor and the Verus Thor. I like the Thor much better.

    Thanks I saw the Verus in person and didn't like the bulging corners. Looks funny to me.

    To me not that bad. Provides a much better grip than the Spegin which is slippery.

    I guess I should have specified in the OP. I ordered the Pelican Voyager it came in yesterday. I returned it this morning. It is only 2 pieces of plastic that snap together. Similar to the inside of an otter box without the exterior TPU rubber. I didn't feel like it was protective enough for me. It felt cheap and flimsy IMO.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check those out.

    No. Haven't received the case for the iPhone 6 yet. The one on the 4s is not too bulky and could be put in a holster.

    Did you actually put the case on your phone?

    You can simply pop the built-in screen protector out of any of these cases. They're just held on with glue. Rub the remaining glue off with a pencil eraser.

    No. My phone hasn't arrived. But the Voyager is just not protective feeling enough for me.

    One would think it would be hard to judge/rate a case on its protection/performance without having an actual phone in said case, but I could be biased. I have a Voyager and love it! Best "protective" case on the market if you ask me

    I could tell instantly it wasn't the case for me. I need a little more drop protection than the Voyager provides. It is mostly plastic and I prefer more rubber case.

    Otterbox commuter when available. I'm also waiting to check out their symmetry case.

    This is what I do to every Otterbox Defender I get. Takes only a minute.
