    Redpepper I believe it's called off eBay. There's a thread going here. Try searching.

    I'd wait for lifeproof. Don't really trust any other company with waterproof cases. It's something I wouldn't want to gamble with.

    I kind of did my own research and I might wait for the Bric + Extreme coining out in February.
    I would like to compare that and Lifeproof for durability and day to day use.
    I would only use it for beach days and when on Vacation.
    I have a clear case for day to day use.

    What about the Obex from Seido? I just found out about that one?

    I've done a good bit of research on this case and finally decided to order it... should be here this week. It sounds like it should be an acceptable alternative to Lifeproof (what I typically use)

    I think people are giving up on Lifeproof.

    I am not entirely sure about this case for waterproof purposes. It looks like a good option for shock and dust proof.
    I watched a few different videos on this case and the part that worried me is the ear bud flap.
    This does not seem like it would be sealed correctly over time.
    I am mostly interested in waterproof, so I will wait for either LifeProof or something comparable.
    Please do post pictures and your personal experience with is case.
    It could help someone out.

    I received my Red Pepper case the other day. My initial reaction is that it strongly resembles the LifeProof Fre' that I had for my iPhone 5, right down to the screw-in headphone adapter.

    I haven't had a chance to water test the case yet, but I'll report back when I do. I mostly want it so I can have the phone alongside the hot tub while streaming music to my Bose SoundLink III.

    Lifeproof will soon launch waterproof case called "nüüd" for iPhone 6 Plus.

    Following up on the Red Pepper Case: We were heading down to Kah Nee Tah Casino and Resort, which has both heated pools and hot tubs, so I switched over to the Red Pepper case. I immediately noticed a sticky film by the home button/fingerprint sensor. Thinking this was a removable protector film, like the one that comes on the phone from Apple, I peeled it up. It turns out, that was the membrane that was supposed to waterproof the case in the home button area. :(

    They must have messed up when applying the adhesive at the factory.

    I guess I will try out the Dog and Bone Wetsuit instead, or wait for the LifeProof Nuud.

    The other option is the seidio obex. It's longer and wider than the redpepper case, but also considerably thinner. The only problem that I had with it was that initially the film over the home button wasn't very flexible and it made the home button difficult to press. In the few weeks that I've been using the case it's stretched out a bit and it's not really a problem anymore.
