So question for iPhone 5 owners. Is there a protector or wrap that is not a case that will protect all sides of the iPhone? Similar to the screen protectors but also protecting the edges and back?

I did the case with previous iPhones and realized I like the phone better without a case, but I also want to prevent scratches or gouges in the metal from accidental drops or scrapes on rough surfaces (asphalt, cement walls, etc...
Since the 5 has varying degrees from back to front I dont see how the chamfered edges could be protected without a case.

Curious whats out there or if someone came up with something.

I tried the InvisbleShield and didn't like it on my iPhone 4. Ended up tearing it off and buying a Wrapsol. I'll never go back. I'm rocking a full body Wrapsol on my iPhone 5 and it's great. Covers all sides of the phone and is ridiculously easy to install.

Ghost armor protects it on the front, back, and sides. They are in most malls and have a lifetime guarantee.

Does the Ghost Armor work well with the iPhone 5? Has anyone tested it? Dumb question probably, but does it prevent the screen from shattering?

This one does exactly that...can't even tell there is something on it. I have 3 of them. - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150921719888

I also picked up one of these first. It's a little thicker but still VERY minimal as far as size goes...both offer scratch protection. - http://www.ebay.com/itm/300778344117?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

GF has it on her phone and you cannot tell it is there aside from the different feel that you get from a screen protector.

I just ordered the full body wrapsol for my iPhone 5 from amazon because of your recommendation...
