    Have an iPhone 5s. Don't care about the finger print sensor or waterproof.

    Just bought an Otterbox defender and love the feeling of the case but it is to thick to fit in my iPhone Wallet from SFbags.

    Are there any rubber/grip cases of good quality out there? I don't care about price and tried the symmetry - and commuter - both hard plastic and slippery.

    Please help!

    Oh ok. Trying to get one with grip rubber on the outside just like Otterbox Defender but slimmer!

    Open and exposed. No protection back there.

    You can cut out a screen protector and put it there maybe.

    I have the Ultra Hybrid which is not a soft rubber but fairly hard. But not hard hard. (if that makes sense). It's just enough to protect the case. It can actually stand upright or on the sides without falling over. It's softer than Otterbox. The one that's comparable to Otterbox has a rubber casing that's really durable and it's also cover with a back plate. I also have the Slim Armor S which is combo of plastic and rubber… but it doesn't feel like those plastic cases i.e. Belkin, Incase.


    I dropped mine with the Ultra hybrid case. I gasped because it fell about 5ft to the concrete. No damage to the case and iPhone :)

    you should check it out.
