    Just wondering what you all recommend. I'm looking for the following:
    - Black carbon fiber
    - Back only with Apple logo cutout (so I can see the logo on the phone itself)
    - Fits with SGP Neo Hybrid 2 (or should I get a different bumper to go with it?)

    All three brands have what I need (in terms of carbon fiber with a cutout) - my question is which is of the best quality and will work best with the SGP case. Sorry if I was unclear.

    I cant speak for the other 2 but I have a luckylabs carbon fiber skin and it fits fine with a bumper case on.

    Does it feel like carbon fiber? Or is it more like an ordinary sticker?

    It definitely has texture to it. When i bought mine i thought it would be a lot thicker but its only as thick as two pieces of printer paper stacked on top of each other. Its still good, however, and i would definitely recommend it.

    My brother has a lucky labs and looks great on his black 4s and I use an icarbon for my white 4s. Honestly there really is no difference in quaility

    No, incorrect.

    eBay search for 3M Di Noc ... $1.95 shipped.

    So with one of these, would the SGP Neo Hybrid II be my best bet? I want to preserve the silver antenna look, so I'd get the silver colour. Any other bumpers that you'd recommend (that don't impede signal)?

    With precision cut Apple logo, Camera & Flash? I think not!

    ----------

    It all depends how much you want to spend. I didn't think the SGP bumpers were worth $30 (or the Apple ones) so I got an off-brand bumper from Amazon which also comes in multi colors like SGP.

    Here is my Lucky Labs Black Carbon back w/ White Carbon Logo insert and my knock-off Amazon White/Black bumper. Fits perfect.

    Second package already. I've already worn out the LL wraps. They look great but durability is not that good. Specially when it gets all torn and worn out just by switching from different cases. From Metal to Snap cases. The Snap cases are the ones that really tear into the wraps. At least the wraps are cheap enough to keep replacing.

    I have the full body icarbons on my 4s and love it. It has a texture feel to it and was really easy to install.

    Lucky Labs quality on their Teksure line is pretty good. I've got the CF in black and a brushed aluminum backing/wrap waiting to go on at some point.

    Everyone keeps talking about how great their customer service is, but when they had their Black Friday sale, I ordered some iPhone skins and a MBA skin top/bottom/hinge and they sent the wrong ones for the MBA. No biggie, so i contact them and they ship out the correct ones, less the hinge piece (2). I contacted them on Saturday about it, had to follow up Tuesday Evening to get a response that they're sending out the 2 hinge pieces. I would have thought a replacement order would get the once over, but apparently not. Maybe this is just an isolated case of subpar Customer Service. I didn't have any issues with the iPhone skins and have purchased a pack of spectra wraps in the past, which were also good.

    Jonny boy, you really need to fix yours. The front looks very bad, and is not lined up. Doesn't look like it's very good quality.


    sticker boy. net has the best skins. Cheapest too.

    They do have pretty competitive prices for their back and front skins but their side wraps are a bit on the expensive side. 10 bucks for 2 identical side wraps is a lot compared to luckylabs' 3 for 10. Not to mention their shipping is a bit on the high side charging $6 to ship to texas. sticker boy does have a wider selection to choose from though.

    Have had the black carbon fiber on my 4 for the past few months- Good quality, precise cutouts, works well with a bumper
