    I still havent found a permanent case. I'm looking for something inbetween being slim but not to the extreme and then not too bulky like an Otterbox case, I don't need need THAT much protection. I want it to cover the top and bottom.

    I wouldn't mind something like the Feather if it offered closed all around protection. Recommendations?

    Rinke Slim

    Probably my favorite case. It keeps the slim look and feel of the phone, while offering all around protection from scratches and dings. It also has a great matte feel to it to keep it from slipping out of your hands. Make sure you by the SF Black one if you want the matte feel. The other colors/options seem to be slippery.

    +1 I have the ringke slim black for my iPhone 6 plus. Its slim and still offers all around protection. Also provides a good grip to the phone.

    I am leaning towards Spigen neo hybrid, top choice at the moment in Reventon Yellow for SG iPhone 6+, also considering Speck Candy Shell Grip or may possibly go naked and use a SENA Heritage ultra slim pouch

    Wait for the Caze thinedge for the iPhone 6, it will offer all around protection without bulk. They said it will come out next Monday.

    Take a look at the speck candyshell grip and the incipio NGP. Both very thin with good to moderate protection.

    I go with Ringke Fusion. It has the lip I the front for lay on the table and is grippy with reinforced corners for drop protection. It also hugs the iPhone 6/plus so you feel the roundness of it. That make it feel secure in the hand.

    Go with the Spigen. The grip is nice. I've dropped my 5s several times and not one scratch. Both times on the hard concrete.

    The Thule Atmos X3 is the thinnest full round protection I've seen for the iPhone.

    +1!! I have the Thule for the 6 Plus and it is amazing. Adds barely any thickness and feels rock solid on the phone.

    I also did a YouTube review of this case, if that is helpful to anyone:

    I like the Thule as well. Feels thin, still easily fits in my pocket but seems to offer a decent front lip and all around coverage/protection.

    Interestingly, I had the case and returned it within a day. I didnt feel there was enough lip and the bulging in the center bothered me

    The bulging is a little bit odd, but I can't say it really bothers me. As for the height of the lip, my previous 6 Plus case was the Tech21 Tactical and this has quite a bit more lip than that one. A little more lip would be ok, in my opinion, but I think it is sufficient. By the way, for those of you that don't know, the Thule Atmos X3 did great in Mobile Reviews Eh's drop tests on YouTube. It was the version for the 6, not the 6 Plus, but the results are probably pretty applicable to the Plus.

    I watched that video too. I like the case, but it was the grip that threw me off

    I personally did not enjoy the Spigen Neo Hybrid for my 6+. The material was too slippery and didn't provide enough grip, in my opinion.

    it is certainly a solid case, but it is ugly imo. Don't understand the industrial looking design

    This. My phone survived a fall on the garage floor in this baby. I'd recommend it to anyone for anything. It's definitely on the slim side while still offering good protection. You can't go wrong with this one.

    This is definitely my favorite all around case. I looked for about a week and finally landed on this one.

    Definitely the Tech21. Although adds more bulk than I normally like, it makes the 6+ so much easier to use one handed and I like the minimal lip.
