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

Thanks for any info!

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.

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.

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.

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