I picked up the Thule X5 today at my local Best Buy today. It was $79.99.
It is just as thick as an Otterbox case. It is waterproof (not specified) and a drop rating of 2 meters.
The sound isn't muffled at all like the other waterproof cases which is good.
So far my only negative feed back is the area above the home button. You have to press a little harder to hit the space button (which if you have a 6S/6S plus, it'll activate the 3D Touch)

But other than that, it's a very grippy case and very lightweight.

I just got this case today two at Best Buy. I like it so far. The sound for me is a little muffled but not a dealbreaker. The screen actually has a gap between it and the glass of the iPhone. But if you push the screen down as your closing the charger door the air comes out and the screen is fine. This case is a lot better than my life proof so far.I went through so many like proof cases cause the battery door keeps breaking.

Do you have the same problem with an air gap right above the home button??

Yes I had the air gap. If you push down along the screen from the top to the bottom before you close the power port the screen will be flush with the iPhones glass. If you you tube the case Thule has an install video that shows what I'm talking about. But it makes the phones screen 100x times better. Try it and let me know what you think.
