    We are more an otterbox family and my daughter uses a commuter on her 5c. She loves it and it provides a nice level of protection without being grossly oversized.

    Have you checked out the New Trent cases. They are all about rugged and protective. I'm more of a minimalist but my husband likes the protection and is super fussy. He has the New Trent and really likes it - built in screen protector that actually works, with a two part case that includes tabs that close to protect all the holes.

    Definitely check out the LifeProof cases. Since they're also waterproof, I sometimes wash my phone with soap to get rid of germs :cool: They have two versions of the iPhone case: the Nuud and the Fre. Both are waterproof, but the Fre has a built in screen protector while the Nuud does not. They do include an external static cling screen protector that you can install if you want. I'm currently using the Nuud and have the external screen protector installed.

    Magpul Field Case is also worth checking out.

    I'm happy with the Apple 5c case - its not a lifeproof type case, but it protects the back and I have ghost armor on the front.

    I personally, don't like big bulky cases. I know its not exactly what the OP is asking for, but in reality, its a nice case that protects my phone.

    I think LifeProof is a good option, I'd recommend that.

    I'm not questioning that it does a great job, definitely. I sit in front of a computer all day, so I can afford to have so little protection, you on the other hand need something a little more comprehensive :)

    Otterbox is always my first choice as far as protection of iPhone is concerned. And defender series is the best one with high level of quality.

    well my girlfriend i both have speck candy shells and she's extremely clumsy with her phone and drops is everything and i well have an outdoor lifestyle where my phone would take a beating but still looks brand new because of the case, it takes a beating and holds up and it does have military ratings so i say take a good look at that

    I've had good luck with otterbox. The sound quality on the lifeproof suffers.
    Just recently got a griffin survivor and it's a great case. It does a better job keeping dust out of the speakers than the otterboxes.
