I am liking the Power Support Air jacket on my gold iPhone. It provides good coverage without any large openings and is modest in size.

Very nice. I've had the clear PS Air Jacket on my 4S and my 5, and I've ordered a new one for my 5S. It's a very slim case but offers great protection as long as you're not completely reckless. I recently dropped my 5 on a concrete sidewalk from around waist height and the Air Jacket took the full damage and is still very much usable.

Veddy, veddy nice. I bought 2 of these a few days ago--1 for my wife's gold 5S and 1 for my space gray. Definitely looking forward to them--they look GREAT.

Love the way it looks. The only thing I don't like is that is a lil bit slippery. Especially when I'm at the gym. Other than that, I have no complaints. Great case and doesn't hide the design of the phone.

Does it have an indented lip at the top of the case so like if it fell glass first, the case would save the glass from touching the ground?

The buttons are more difficult to push but remain useable. The flash cut out is fine; the black ring is supposed to eliminate the flare from the flash.

There is a little lip on the sides but not top or bottom. The screen should be fine if the phone is face down on on a flat surface but dropping it at just the right angle might be a problem.

i bought this case and it is just too slippery for me. If anyone wants to buy it from me and pay postage lmk. I live in Los Angeles.

I think there is a new version that is more grippy. Here is what the website says about it.....

Now available in Power Support smooth rubber, this unique material provides device protection and a soft and silky yet grippable rubber. You have to feel it to believe it.

I am fairly certain that the grippable rubber they are referring to is only available for the black version, which is what I'm using right now. If you decide to use the clear or clear black, it will be in the slippery material.

To OP:
Speaking of the clear, how does yours hold up with scratches? I've only ever owned 1 clear case and it looked horrible after the day to day abuse.

Actually, on the Power Support website, it shows the clear version and the description describes that it is in fact the softer material and not slippery.
Just ordered one yesterday.
