    It fits perfectly tight and it is techinically a silicon case with a hard plastic backing. The bottom is great and it has cut outs for the headphone jack, speakers, and lightening port. It is not loose at all and it fits exactly to the form of the phone.

    It does kinda look like these cases but not exact ofcourse. I will return to the flea market this weekend and see if i can get more...even in different colors then I will be willing to resell for insterested individuals.

    saw a bunch of these on ebay.. was intrigued but the plastic frame looks a bit, well, plasticky and cheap to me.

    I actually bought a 10-pack of these on eBay in different colors for $25. I quite like them; they don't feel cheap at all. They remind me of the Poetic Atmosphere but don't have the flimsy feel on the bottom front piece (but also don't have transparent sides like the PA, which I like). All of the colors were pastel (and black and white), but I'd imagine there are other variations out there.

    do you mean the one in the first post or the post just before yours?

    it's as thin as the Atmosphere?

    Sorry, I meant the one in the first post. And yes, they're just as thin as the Atmosphere, basically all but identical except that they don't have the little TPU thingies on the corners that extend onto the back and the sides are a solid color instead of having the transparent stripe like the Atmosphere does. But for that price, I was willing to roll with it. :)

    Nice but will scratch the heck off the anodizing finish.

    The problem is just that everyone that either understands a slight bit of German or Yiddish, or watches Formula One will laugh at it. :rolleyes:

    ...or everyone who drives a Ferrari, as the logo is yellow rather than orange:

    So sorry-- just saw this. Either I was mistaken or the price has gone up $5; either way, still not a bad deal for 10 cases.
