    If you don't mind contributing to the poll, I'd like to see what you do for a living so I'd be able to gauge the level of risk you take with your iPhone. Just curious.

    I'm a Security Manager for a casino. I don't like cases, but due to the nature of my work, I use minimalist style cases.

    Electrical Engineer. I use a bumper on my phone (or a slim case, depending on my mood).

    Physicist. I use a skin. I may get an otterbox (defender), but just for those days when I'm out of my routine where it may be risky for my phone.

    Physician. I tend to use the most featherweight, minimalist case I can find, mainly to prevent scratches from putting the phone down on tables and other surfaces. But I do like to go naked when I can :)

    I work from home, for a bank, and the greatest risk my phone faces during an average workday is my cat knocking it off of my desk onto a carpeted floor. That said, I still use cases all of the time because a) I want my phone to remain as nice as it was the day I got it as long as I'm using it, and b) a pristine phone will sell for a hell of a lot more than one that has scratches or dings.

    Optometric physician, photographer, mountain biker...

    A cheap, thin case at minimum, that I replace every few weeks. Also, I keep more ziplock bags in my car than a drug dealer to place my iPhone within to protect from sweat, mud, water, etc.
