Long story short, I have used Spigen bumpers, Incipio NGP, and Tech21's Evo Mesh.

How does Rhinoshield's products (E.g. The Playproof) compare? Thicker? Thinner? Materials? Etc.

Thanks.

I can only compare it to the Tech21 Evo Mesh. The Playproof is thinner and the material is fingerprint resistant when compared to the Evo Mesh. The Pp fit is much better. Grip on the Evo Mesh is better. I'm still using my Pp and think overall it's far superior to the Evo Mesh. Hope that helps.

I love play proof, was surprise how slim it is considering the protection if offer

I agree.

I've been using it for several months now. I have other cases, but the form factor on this is what I really like. Even when compared to other protective cases, it's much slimmer. It doesn't have the grip of others, but I haven't had a problem with that. Great case.

I don't know what it is about the playproof but I love how it feels. Yes, it's a little slick but it just feels "quality". If you watch any drop tests on youtube the playproof is near indestructible while the tech21 products don't seem to hold up to nearly the same abuse.

The Tech21 is just a bit thick for me and the Incipio didn't provide any protection when dropped.

Playproof is way too slippery, always felt as if the phone would fall out of your hands. I returned it for that reason only.

Got my PlayProof in, but I was an idiot and accidentally the 6 PLUS version for my 6. Going to have to return it and wait again. o_O

The PlayProof is exactly what I was looking for. It's more protective than my Incipio and thinner/less obtrusive than the Tech21. It also has a nice lip around the screen. This really is ideal.

Also, not nearly as slick as people make it out to be. It's nice and matte.

It definitely is matte, but still slick imo. Glad you like it though
