    Hey all,

    Have been reading various posts re: Trunket skins. All of the pictures I've seen have had really sharp aluminum cases, which look great. However, right now spending the $35 for the skin + $70+ for the bumper/case isn't a possibility. Have any of you had the Trunket skins with a rubber or polycarbonate bumper? (i.e. Scosche Bandedge, Griffin Reveal Frame, Craze ThinEdge) Would you say this is even a good idea, or should I wait until I can spare the $? (And yes, I know that it will eventually come down to personal preference as to whether or not I want this setup...looking for feedback) Thanks.

    Matt

    Also: will a rubber bumper give me enough lip for the skin to sit flush (or very close to it)?

    You could always consider the fake aluminum cases. There's a great thread dedicated to fake element cases that are less than $30 and have amazing quality.

    As far as the trunket skin goes, I don't think it'll fit the craze thinedge since it already bubbles screen protectors and the wood is fairly thick.

    I too, was going to consider a Trunket, until someone posted their Trunket Skin (wood) wasn't sticking. It kept slipping' off the 4S backplate.

    I have the Trunket and love it. I had a sticking issue with the first one, but Rick at Trunket sent me a new one no questions asked. And that one stuck just fine. I am LOVING it! I use it with a fake Element Vapor Black Ops and it is a great combo.

    ^^^ Cool ^^^. Good to know Trunket Skins work. I was worried there for a while. I really like their skins.

    I recently got a few new ones and I can confirm that out of 8 total that I currently have, one had a less sticky adhesive which wasn't sticking well to the glass.

    Found a knockoff Deff Cleave at a Sprint store of all places and got it for $30. My Trunket is coming this week, I'll post pics.

    I've been using a Trunket skin with the rubber bumper from Apple -- black/black. I started with the Apple bumper with a full-body Invisible Shield, then just added the Trunket skin on top. It works fine and feels nice in my hand, but it's time for me to change it up so I'm going back to using only the full-body Invisible Shield. In the 3rd picture it looks like the Trunket skin creates a "lip," but it doesn't feel that way. It actually feels flat and smooth.

    fx21,

    any issues with sticking the Trunket skin to the invisible shield? i would worry sticking one skin on top of another might create some issues.

    this was the exact set up i was considering; invisible shield, trunket and rubber bumper so i'm glad to hear and see that things worked out

    Nope. I haven't had any problems with the Trunket skin sticking to the Invisible Shield. In fact, I took it off once and the Invisible Shield was stuck to it. I didn't try to pull it off because the Invisible Shield looked pretty stuck to the Trunket skin's adhesive. In my opinion, the stickiness of the I.S. and the Trunket adhesive made a good bond. Also, once I put it back on it had no problems sticking again.

    Good luck with your setup! :)
