    These "full body" skins are around the same price. I have a wrapsol for my macbook, and I like it. I would also be using the screen protector as it is a few bucks extra, unless they are not good I will buy something else.

    I was curious if anyone has experience with the other brands. I am looking for a nice skin that does not have that weird rubber feeling (Like invisashield or whatever that Zagg is called)

    I am also curious which would be easiest to apply to my phone?

    I want to have this type of protection instead of a case to show off the sexy all black body of my new iPhone 5!

    if anyone can comment, I would greatly appreciate it.

    -ghost armor does not mention if it is dry

    -bodyguardz says it can be applied dry

    -wrapsol just shows a diagram of how to apply, but it looks dry. I wouldnt trust that though, because my macbook wrapsol had the spray. It was a nightmare but looked beautiful after installed.


    so far ghost armor looks the best, but I would appreciate any opinions on the others.

    In regards to our UltraTough clear skins; we feel it is an excellent product for a few reasons:

    • It is based off of the material used to protect cars and helicopter blades like other companies offer, but it has been enhanced to meet the specific needs of electronic devices; with such features as enhanced clarity, touch sensitivity and anti-microbial technology.

    • We have made the installation process as easy as possible, with the option to apply your protectors dry or with our cutting-egde application gel.

    • All UltraTough clear skins come with 2 full sets per package (with the exception of tablets and laptops). This tends to take the pressure off of the installation process.

    • Once purchased, you will be part of the Advantage Program which makes you eligible for lifetime replacements and 20% off all future orders.

    If you need more convincing, I can offer you 50% off your purchase. Let me know if you have any more questions! We want you as a customer :)

    I appreciate your offer. PM me regarding the 50% off and I will order 2 sets (of 2) one for me, one for a friend.

    I hope its an easy setup (dry?) and i will be glad to post photos of the results!

    Edit: Is that link I posted part of the "ultratough" series? It does not mention it anywhere

    http://www.bodyguardz.com/apple-iph...-skins-films.html?dir=asc&order=sort_priority

    and on the ultratough section, you only have screen protectors... I want the full body protection

    That is correct, I am afraid. Sadly the Pure is not yet shipping, but it will be as soon as the manufacturing process is complete. Will the screen protector in your UltraTough full body suffice until the Pure arrives? It is an excellent screen protection option by itself.

    Thank you for your business, and I apologize for any confusion.

    I would really like to try out the bodyguardz Ultra Tough Full Body protection set. With my recent phones I went with Power Support and I would like to try a Full Body kit.

    Could I have a coupon code for 50% off? Would be great!

    Hi, I too am interested in your body protectors (back and sides only. Do you ship to to Canada and if so what are the shipping charges?

    Thanks.

    I've only tried Ghost Armor on my iPhone 4 and now iPhone 5. I can confirm its a wet application and i purchased only the matte version. The front screen protector i didn't really like as that's the only part that's not matte. Besides that it was a very good product. Shame i had to peel it off since i had my phone swapped at the Apple Store. The price is also a bit steep.

    Ever since Zagg tweaked their website to sneakily offer only EURO pricing to anyone visiting from outside the US, I've been looking for an alternative. I've ordered from Zagg multiple times before and I've been very happy using their shield since my iPhone 3G days. But unfortunately I'm not very happy with their shift in pricing from USD to EUR for non US customers.

    So i've been looking at Bodyguardz/Wrapsol/iCarbons but don't have any experience with them.

    I understand there have been improvements to the old issue of orange-peel effect that Zagg's original invisible shields suffered from - is this a factor with any of the others?

    Also it looks like i missed out on all the great holiday deals that were going on - unfortunately Zagg didn't respond in time to the query on their pricing model shift to non US customers in time (otherwise they were a great choice and their shipping rates to non US countries were awesome)

    50% off? I would also like to try this out (I have 2 phones)

    I switch between my iPhone 5 and my new HTC One, but my HTC One really needs some protection. I would like to buy this from you at the 50% off offer if possible. I am using Ghost Armor on my iPhone 5, and would really like to compare the two products.

    I hate putting the clear ones on. I have had GhostArmor install them for me, but there is so much metal exposed after they are installed on the sides. I don't like them.

    I just ordered **********'s clear ones. I have never used them, but like their other decals (carbon fiver, etc) very much. Excellent coverage. I will let you know how it goes.
