    What are the top premium case brands? For a slim light but protecting case? I was a completely clear case with a slight lip on the screen size? Nothing to bulky or cheap looking..

    All I know of is pinlo and dismay. But they don't seem strong enough to protect from a small drop, just scratches. A completly clear plastic shell case would be fine really but can't even find a decent one for an iPhone 4.

    Otterbox make great cases and they stand behind there products. I am sure that this thread will turn into a case vs no case debate but I have always had Otterbox Defenders on all of my phones and have never had a scratch or dent on any of them

    Speck makes some of the nicest. And their name means "bacon" in German.

    Otterbox commuter series for me. Had one on my 3GS and now on my 4S. And I preordered one for my 5.

    Guys, read his post. He wants a completely clear and light case. The OtterBox, while a pretty good case, is neither clear nor thin.

    Might not have the specifics you are looking for since a lot of them are still under development but,

    Otterbox to me is no premium

    Spigen SGP and Element is where it's at.

    Especially the screen protectors from SGP.

    If you have the money to spare, just wait for the vaja-cases. Top quality leather, custom design inside to outside, laser writing and with ?Stravinsky? Cystal on top. When you get one, just make sure you don't stretch your case (or get another case to cover this case, LOL)

    Incipio, Switcheasy, iFrogz and Incase all usually make an ultra slim clear case. Keep an eye out for their iPhone 5 offerings.

    Get Incipio. They're usually pretty great and have a lot of different styles to offer. They're not too bulky either.

    EDIT: Read his post incorrectly. Vaja does not make a product that matches his requirements, which is what I originally suggested.
