    trying to find one as well, all the aluminium ones have reception issues. Since I'm getting a carbon fibre wrap for my iPhone i still want that aluminium style bumper but without any reception issues. Hard to find one these days...any idea what brand that is in the attached pic?

    Check out the SGP Linear EX. That's the closes you will find.

    Does the SGP Linear Ex fit over lucky labs spectra wraps on the side of the iphone?

    I had the color series and it actually ripped apart my wrap.

    It's not extremely translucent/clear, but the Desmay keeps the exact design shape of the phone intact.

    i think as far as bumpers the Apple bumper is the best for slim and a touch of protection, the SGP is nice too but i think its a little thicker. If you just looking for a skin then a spectra wrap or something like that would be your best bet.

    Just buy a Apple knock off for $3

    Put a wrap on the antenna band or it will get scratched.

    That's true with the apple bumper but not the SGP Neo hybrid bumpers.

    I had the Apple bumper, it looks like absolute crap after a weeks use (white one), and it's "bulky" for someone looking for minimalistic. Picked up a Ultra Case slim bumper, It's really nice for what it is, super slim, no lay on table protection. However, it gets dirty really quick (white again), and the buttons are SUPER hard to push. It really stands out. Chucked that into the drawer.

    I just run it naked now. I use rubbing alcohol on it every other week to clean the phone up, looks new like day one.

    I like the Desmay case, it's super thin. But I like it with nothing now :D

    If you do not plan to resell your iPhone, then a naked iPhone is better than any CLOSEST to naked cases because these cases actually do not protect your phone that much. So if you want it slim, let is naked
