    I know Sena Ultraslim is many people's favorite and I'm thinking of going with that one but I want to keep my options open before I order it.

    Anyone have any recommendations? I'm trying to find a happy medium between keeping the phones form factor and preventing it from getting scratches while in my pocket.

    Right now there aren't many options available. I suggest something cheap and wait a month or two..

    You would spend $115 on a case/sleeve? :eek:

    50-60 would be my max..

    I use the ColcaSac for my MacBook and like it. I always kind of wanted one for my phone.

    I ended up going with teh Sena case. I like how it's slim and just looking for something that will keep the iphone safe in my pocket from scratches.

    FYI, to anyone interested, they have a 20% off coupon code.

    No, I just ordered yesterday. It say it doesn't ship until mid october. I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate or if it wills hip sooner but I have a temp case in the meantime.

    You can see the reviews for the 4 version all over. There are plenty of youtube videos. That's what convinced me to get it.

    I've had a good experience with a beyza sleeve for my 4. I'm thinking about going with another one for my 5 when its available.

    http://us.beyzacases.com/pd-iphone-5-zero-series-case.cfm

    It's very similar to the sena ultra slim case, but i prefer the contrast stitching on the beyza.

    Did anyone notice that none of these cases take into account the headphone jack being at the bottom??

    I'm probably going to go with the Sena Ultra slim for my 5. Anyone know how soon they become available in the Apple Store as opposed to buying from their website?

    Last year it was about a month after shipping on their site.

    I preordered, but I don't think I'm going to like it. I have had Sena cases since they first came out for iPhone 3G, and they've always been fantastic.

    For whatever reason, with the iPhone 5, they decided to cut an opening at the bottom for a charging plug-in... WTF?!?!?! WHY would someone want to leave one of the most important ports on their phone exposed to the elements? The SOLE purpose I have a case for is so it keeps the pocket lint out when it's in my pocket, and now they basically cut a hole in the bottom which will now allow the dust and lint to enter.

    I emailed their people about it and complained, and they said they thought people would find it useful. I disagreed.

    I've had their cases before and they are very good.

    Thanks for the coupon! Just ordered one. The phone is so nice I hate to cover it or turn it into a piece of rubber, but I still want some protection in my pocket.

    Another happy Beyza cases customer here. I was using one of their cases on iPhone 4 for 2 years. The case is still in excellent condition. You get premium quality for the money you spend.

    I pre-ordered one for my iPhone 5.

    Since getting a sleeve for my iPad 3 on Etsy, I've turned to the site for very high quality leather goods that are also customized to exact specifications for me.

    I'm getting this one for my iPhone 5.
