Here are some pics. Love the case, slim as well. Phone fits snug inside, has a nice lip on the front to protect the screen from getting scratched. If they stand by their product like they do with their camera/firearm cases... "Guaranteed for life" will pay for itself.

I just wish they had a gold/grey combo

Nice pics!!

I'm torn between the protector and voyager cases. I like the port protector on the voyager. On your protector, is it easy to slip into/out of the pocket? Does the rubber/TPU snag?

How grippy is this case? I have a Spigen Neo Hybrid and my wife has an Incipio DuoPro for our 6+'s, and neither of them are very grippy. With the 6+ I'd like to have a better grip for when I'm using it one handed and such.

This case looks like it will fit my needs perfectly (as long as it is grippy and the buttons are responsive). I will need to run to an AT&T store to try it out for myself.

The case is not grippy where you cannot get it out of your pocket. The black is more slick plastic and the grey is a runner like material (similar to the spigen TPU). The best comparison would be its very similar to the magpul cases.

I have 5 cases and this is by far my favorite. The buttons are a little stuff but not where you have to put all your weight to register.

I did not like the voyager case. It is a 2 piece design and the flaps felt like they would break after 10 uses.

AT&T should have both and the packaging is designed where you can remove, test, and feel the cases before buying. My friend was buying a iPhone 6 and so I was finger F'n all the cases there.

The protector is $40 and the voyager is $60. Voyager comes with a belt clip, which I liked but meh.

Can you comment on rigidity and bulk ..... Was originally getting a thin case but having second thoughts

I played with both cases today for my IP6 and liked both. I don't think to flaps will be a problem and if so Pelican will replace it. What I like about the Voyager is the lip is about 1-mm deeper which protects the screen better. I use my phone when I golf and I am concerned that dust will collect inside the earphone and lightning ports of the Protector. Don't get me wrong I like both of them for their build quality - much better than Otterbox

No experience with this case but have extensive experience with Pelican products.

Their stuff is tough, durable and light.

If they had this color for the normal 4.7" 6 I would have gotten it. The blue was just to much.

I posted in another thread that mentioned this case. My husband got it and loves it. It appears in the pic to be bulkier then it is but it isn't and I loved it because it has a bigger lip then my clear one. I just want a clear case but boy I like his (this case) better as far as lightweight protection goes. The only thing is boy the colors are so limited for those that don't want gray (all I have seen is the gray and the white with pink). And AT&T told him to keep the receipt because they warrant it for life or whatever lol.

Wow. Wow. Wow. Just picked up this case. Was looking for something a bit rugged. Not too big. No screen protection. This thing is perfect. Right fitting. Great grip. Not too big. Awesome. So, so happy. Thank you Pelican!!!

I have the case as well and like it. However, the gray does get dirty and show dirt quickly. I will say, if it was totally black I would still be using it.

I also love this case. Maybe a bit more gripiness in the center would be good. I just wish it were a little cheaper. I returned it but may buy it later, so i'll be on the lookout for deals.

All black would be awesome.
