    I have a number of cases but the one I use the most is the zebra print iphone 4 case from sourcingmap. It looks really good on my phone. solid and doesn't add too much bulk. Visit this link: http://www.sourcingmap.com/theme/animal_print_iphone4_cases.html and see animal prints cases i recommended.

    The CaseMate "Barely There" case is available at BB. I bought this one temporarily as well and like it so much my freebie Apple case went into the junk drawer upon arrival. Check out the user reviews on their website. Cheers!

    My primary is the Fortte STiL Vertical Pouch (http://fortte.com/scr/showproduct.php/1354?type=0) which is good quality leather at a reasonable price (I didn't want to have to pay $70+ for something along the lines of Vaja, etc.)

    I also ordered an SGP Neo Hybrid EX which I'll use occasionally in more casual environments, when I'm on the road, etc.

    I use the Speck PixelSkin most of the time. It fits well over a DecalGirl skin I have on my iPhone as well. When I go out, the iPhone either goes naked in my purse protected in a Proporta Maya pouch case, or in my pocket with Apple's Bumper case on since it's much less bulky than the PixelSkin and gives me more grip than the naked iPhone.

    I'm using the SGP ultra thin in pink. I love the case. Ive had several people think I'm lying to them when I tell them that the case isn't metal. I think it was 20$ plus shipping. Well worth the money.

    Ghost armor shielded it, fully body. Waiting for the sides and back to get trashed so I can use my incase snap again. It won't fit with the ghost armor sides and back on.

    Got quite a few cheap cases from eBay. Also got a Case-mate gelli case which is quite nice. But I mostly use the Apple white bumper and thats it.

    Otterbox Defender, Speck Pixelskin HD, Belkin Shield Eclipse.

    Belkin: Worst of the 3; plastic is real hard and I'm afraid of breaking my iP4 everytime I get it out. Buttons are extremely stiff. Good protection though, but if I could sell it, I would.

    Speck Pixelskin HD: Just had it yesterday, but it is already my favorite. It's slim, yet a good protection. The plastic is just stiff enough for protection but bends really well to remove your phone from it. Buttons are soft and that case screams sexayyyyyy.

    Otterbox: Ok, first you got to know I have a real fascination about everything Special Ops, and when I first saw the Defender, I wanted that case. Cons: it is bulky. Real bulky, like I only put it on when I wear loose jeans or when I go in the woods/nature. Also because of its bulkiness, the home button loses 25% of its surface. Look at a pic and you will get whay I say. Pros? TONS. It is the best protection for your iphone, the buttons are soft and smooth, it gives a better grip on the phone than any other case, and it really is the most masculine case on the market.

    Do you use a screen protector on the front?

    I want to buy this but I also want to be able to keep a screen protector on it, even if its just the thin plastic sheet that sticks on.

    Any suggestions?

    i don't think animal prints are all attractive because i only love leopard print and zebra print. Tiger print is ugly, if i need a case for iphone 4, i will get a leopard and zebra print case, but not the tiger print case, it is ugly.

    I have a total of 3 cases. The Bumper is for the simple look, but I don't like the fact that it doesn't work with 3rd party accessories. I also have an Otterbox Defender which is cool, but it's too bulky for my liking and will be used in extreme situations. Finally, I picked up an Incipio NGP smoke case today and this is my daily be my daily case. The case feels and looks great.

    By looks - I'd use the Speck as a daily case over the Incipio because I like the texturing of the Pixelmagic case.

    I'll just get a pack of 50 protective sheets from ebay for 10$, since I'll have to remove everytime I use my Defender...

    Just got the Pixel HD from Apple's free case program. Fits nice but I like the NGP smoke from Walmart better. Bottom of Pixel HD does not fit the 3rd party docks as well as the NGP. But its nice to have another case to change out every once in a while.

    I've tried many cases (Incase slider, SwitchEasy Nude, Apple bumper, etc) and I always have a sweet spot for the Griffin Reveal :eek: IMO it looks the best and more OEM than the bumper AND it adds even more protection on the back.

    Despite some minor flaws, it's my favorite case and it looks the best (without scratching lol). Great case and you can pick one up at WalMart for $20 too :D

    I got my phone the day before the launch and bought the bumper the day after I got the phone. It's been on ever since and and I'm really happy with it. I just haven't found anything yet that I like that doesn't take away from the beauty of the phone. I'm considering the vapor, or something like it, but so far the bumper it is!

    Im using the griffin reveal bumper exclusive from bb I love the looks if it since it shows the silver part antennae unlike the apple bumper. It works on both SGP skin guard and SGP cystal screen protector

    So many nice cases here. I got a zebra print case on my iPhone 3. And it is so clean looking. I will order a leopard case next Monday for iphone 4. Thanks for your link. Very impressed.
