    Hello all, currently we have iPhone 5s with a SE on the way, both in Otterbox commuters. Looking for a less bulky option but with some drop protection to screen. Anyone run the above? Any lip to protect screen on either?

    I have Magpul Field and Bump cases awaiting the arrival of my SE,

    Won't know until then how they fit. But I preferred Magpul on 5/5S.

    If you could verify if they have a lip that'd be awesome! Ordered fiancée magpul, now I got to decide...

    Yes, there's lay on the table protection with both the Magpul Bump and the Magpul Field on the new iPhone SE.

    Field might fit perfectly, while the Bump is a 99% fit but adds more drop protection.

    I'll post pictures tomorrow... or remind me if I don't.

    I strongly prefer the Magpuls cases, both models. I've dropped many times with no issue.

    You might get a bit more protection from the Tough Armor, it is bulkier and a different design(two piece). But not my cuppa tea.

    (Let's see if there's a built in image resizer in this forum software,)

    Here's the Magpul Field case on my Space Gray iPhone SE.

    The Field fits perfectly, but volume pushes take a little more effort. (Need to clean the lint, file some casting edges away.)

    The Bump fits almost as good, button volume pushes are easier.

    Both have good lay-on-the-table protection, raised front edge.

    Magpul cases are the best. Cheap and durable while being slim and grippy. Just ordered one for my SE before all the vendors really jack up the prices again. I used to love Spigen but they have went to absolute crap IMHO.

    I have both Magpul Bump and Field cases for my 5s. I like both but prefer the Bump as it has a harder and stiffer outer shell but has a softer liner that surrounds the phone, all bonded together as one piece. Yes, both have an adequate lip even with a tempered glass screen protector installed. I've tried many cases on the 5s and Magpul is my favorite.

    Magpul. Inexpensive and Made in Colorado - worth every cent.

    I really like the bump case, just disappointing that they have no plans for the 6s Plus

    I prefer the field to the bump - I have one for the 6plus. It is such a great case. ODG for life! (or until I can't get one any longer)
