    Any model, 6, 6+, S series. Even 5 series

    Most threads are looking for that ONE perfect case! Holy Grail kind of thing

    But let's face it, we don't wear one pair of shoes (dress, casual, sneakers, hiking, sandals). The same with clothes.

    So I've noticed more and more forum members are doing rotation cases.

    List yours and when you use them.

    Here are mine:

    KAVAJ Tokyo for most days. Office work, around the house. Shows off the phone and direct button access.

    TECH 21 Evo Mesh (Apple store version). For outdoor yard work, sticky wet hands, more active days.

    KAVAJ Dallas case. Has a flip cover ( I don't use screen protectors) , for Gym. On the tread mill, weight lifting. The flip and pockets are perfect.

    Miscellaneous cases: Apple leather and Sena Heritage sleeve. Random use.

    I think rotating cases is the smarter solution than buying dozen of cases looking for the ONE.

    Share yours!

    Saddle brown and black Apple leather cases for work
    Spigen liquid crystal with shorts or whenever I'm not wearing jeans - that clear tpu wears quickly with jeans

    Good replies. Interesting to see what cases people are ' rotating' with each day or activity.

    I used to buy a LifeProof for water sports like fishing or the beach. However they come out so late and I get a new phone each year. With the slight difference between the 6 S and 6, I decided for now it's too expensive and I don't use it much. Maybe I'll change my mind later.

    Any others care to share their case selection. Not ones you are trying out, but a combination of cases that you switch between regularly.

    At the moment I'm rotating between the Speck Candyshell and the blue Apple leather case on my 5S. The CS is my everyday case, the AL is the one I use when I'm looking for something more lightweight.

    My "Go To" case is the Apple Product Red silicone case. I also have a blue one and a brown leather Apple case. I match my case to the sport bands on my Apple Watch.

    Magpul Field Case for when I'm going out and will be on the go a lot and may drop the phone. Generic leather wallet sleeve for when I'm at home or going out when I will mostly be sitting.

    It will be interesting to see how the deep northeast winter affects my phone case needs, when combined with my Apple Watch. I suspect I will take the phone out of my pocket less frequently since I can glance at my watch ( poking between my jacket and winter gloves).

    Maybe I'll use the Sena Sleeve more.

    I'm using the Catalyst almost exclusively now. When I'm not, I use the Magpul Field Case. I've got the K11 bumper coming just out of curiosity. It will be hard for either of the other to supplant the Catalyst as my favorite though.

    Apple Leather for work and Air Jacket for all other times. Hell, honestly it doesnt matter if its work or home I alternate them when i'd rather see the phone vs. a case look.

    I just picked up the Luvvit clear case and it's great. I'm gonna rock it for a while and see if I want to go back to my red silicone case like I normally do.

    Where did you get the Luvvitt? I previously bought mine on Amazon but I don't see one for the Plus. The link on Amazon that I previously bought from is now saying 6S in the heading but 6Splus in the description. I want to get a back up but would rather not order directly from Luvvitt and pay full price.

    I got it on Amazon. Seems to reduce width overall by a couple millimeters and it's noticeable. I'm impressed so far.

    I agree.


    Sometimes you just change up because you want to. No practical reason required.

    For most days I use the Speck Candyshell Grip since I have an 18 month old who sometimes gets his hands on my 6S Plus. It has very good drop protection and of course I love the grip. On days when I need a more slim profile because of what I'm wearing, I'll go with the Spigen Capsule Clear.

    Right now I'll be switching between an Obliq Naked Shield and a Spigen Liquid Crystal.

    The Obliq has a kickstand so is great for work for watching video while doing desk work.

    The Spigen is super slim with classic no frills TPU. I'll probably switch to this when I want the absolute minimal bulk and I know I won't be needing a kickstand.

    I like to have options for3 types of cases: 1) Ultra Thin, 2) Thin, and 3) Slim form factor

    Ultra Thin - Caudabe Veil XT
    Thin - Evutec Karbon S or Elago S6 Slim
    Slim - Apple Silicone Case (PRODUCT RED)

    I also like to have a wallet-type case for when I go on Vacation (i.e. for room key cards, and a credit card or two). I currently have the CM4 Q Card Case.

    I'm actually embarrassed to say that in the 13 months that I've owned my 5s Iphone, I've purchased close to a dozen cases for it. At the end of all of this, I have settled on the Magpul Bump case as my favorite of all. So, I have this case in 3 different colors, and I rotate them just for the fun of it.

    I'm responding to my own question. The Luvvitt ultra slim clear case for the 6 S Plus is back on Amazon. Still my favorite case.

    Ringke Fusion - Nice slim case, the port protectors are a plus. Mostly just an everyday case

    Spigen Slim Armor (newest version with kickstand) - If i know i'm going to be watching videos and such, i'll use this one

    Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro - Nice heavy duty case, but still slim enough to fit comfortably in pockets, used if i'm going to be going yardwork, or if i have it on me at work.

    I usually use zoogue anywhere when I'm nit having a normal day (going out with friends, family etc). Spigen when I'm having a normal day...work, gym, home etc. I guess zoogue offers a little more protection when I'm out of my normal day to day.
