    I'm thinking about removing the back panel of my TRIM and turn it into a bumper, any thoughts?

    seems like it could work..looks as if most of the support comes from the tpu material....give it a try and report back.

    After looking at it for a little while, it won't work. Th back piece is actually on the inside of the TPU and the TPU actually wraps around the back panel on the outside of the case, so if I were to take off the back piece, the would be a little bit of a gap between the back of the phone and the backside TPU.

    It would have looked really cool. Maybe SwitchEasy will make a TRIM EX? ;) Hahaha. :D

    Yeah, after doing my video review, I wore the case for a few hours and I keep coming back to t more and more, I would love to see a bumper version.

    I really dig the case, though I feel like the ridges aren't really necessary for grip since the material itself is already pretty grippy. I'm still hoping that Switcheasy comes out with their own bumper case.

    The TRIM is made with TPU, too hard for a bumper and will not offer shock absorbsion like silicones ones.

    Plus the matte back looks nice, why would you want to take it off?
