Just get a regular rubber case for like $10. $70 for an aluminum bumper? $50 for some shitty carbon fiber looking thing? Come on guys, really?

I just got this case for my iphone yesterday, $6 ftw.

I'd be too afraid to have a real cf case for my phone in case I dropped it, that would be painful.

^^hmm interesting. When you get it drop me a review. I don't think I want just a hard shell, I'm partial to having some sort of silicon to the case.

I grabbed a Otterbox Commuter case from Bestbuy today. Gonna give it a test drive for a few days. Not sure how I feel about it yet. Only have had it for a few hours now.

Got it two days ago. For a $6 case I can't complain/expect much. Compared to my old Griffin Reveal Etch case, you can feel the 'cheapness' of this one for sure.

However, its slim and holds the phone in place very tight which is nice. The sides are made of hard plastic but I feel that if it hit pavement hard enough it would crack instead of absorbing the shock. Not sure though. Overall I am satisfied with it for now, like I said it was only $6 so not much of a wallet breaker if I decide I want to switch in the future.
