    Which ones? Like you had before?

    Rotating cases has become the norm for many now.

    It is from before, they were in the drawer together with two iPhone charging systems and three ear phones.

    Today I found an unopened hard plastic clear case in my office drawer. :D

    I don't use my Apple cases anymore. Pretty much one of the two KAVAJ cases or Tech 21 Evo Mesh.

    I am kind of bored with my Apple cases or am I just bored with iPhones, hmm. :D

    As a cure for the boredom, I took the easier route and ordered a case that is entirely different from any case I have ever owned.

    It is the Caudabe Veil and is just 0.35 mm thick, will see how it is when I eventually get it.

    CDG,

    I converted over from a position of stress over the 'perfect' iPhone case towards the 'Zen' of rotating between several cases I enjoy...and adding a new one as it pleases me!

    Much more rewarding and each case makes the 'slab ' feel new.

    And then iPhone 7 will be here before we know it!

    I should've stated that I switch cases every day nearly. Gym case. Outdoor work case. Etc.

    My Caudabe Black Veil came in today. It is exactly as I expected, stylish and minimalistic but not much protection against drops.

    It is definitely the thinnest case I have owned.

    The camera area is a bit thicker so the lens is protected against scratches.

    It is not as grippy as my leather case but on par with Apple Silicone case for slipperiness.

    So far I like it but probably would go back to my leather case when I travel or in the field a lot.

    I like it very much, so much so that I ordered the Veil XT which covers the bottom.

    A few people have commented on how it doesn't look like I have a case on my phone. That's exactly the look I wanted, of course that look is inversely proportional to drop protection. :)

    My Veil XT just came in today. I ordered it Sunday evening and chose standard shipping at $2.57, came from Cincinnati which explains the fast transit time.

    These Caudabes come in a pretty classy box.

    This one seems to be even more light weight than the standard Veil and I am absolutely loving it.

    It does look very fine. Have you taken it off much yet?

    I'd pull the trigger on this one, but my experience from a 0.350 mm polycarbonate Slice case ( for iPhone 4) was it deformed after 3-5 removals, and I tossed it away.

    Curious how yours works out down the road.

    It Is very cool looking, I agree.

    Vf, I don't much take off my cases but I am guessing that it won't hold up too well under repeated taking off/on.

    It also doesn't have a lip to protect the screen but does have one for around the camera.

    So all in all I think the only reason for this case would so the back doesn't get scratched.

    Having said that, I do love the slim no case look of phone with this on. Also this is imo true grey, the sg of the 6s was more silver. I like this color better with the black face.

    A new case was added to my list for the holidays....a blue LifeProof case for my 6S. Even works with the fingerprint ID and 3D screen.

    Water, snow, dirt, dust proof

    That looks like quite a hefty case.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks! Works 2 meter under water.

    Only to be used for water activities. For that it's a decent worry free size.

    I took off my Caudabe Veil XT to get dog fuzz out from under it. :D

    Putting it on is very easy but taking it off is a tad bit difficult since I was worried about damaging it due to the thinness.

    I took it off and washed it with soapy water. I didn't break it and it still looks as good as new.

    Caudabe has a great warranty, they will unilaterally replace a damaged case for up to a year.

    I've been getting cases from Amazon lately - I don't carry a purse and since getting my S6, I've had a couple different wallet cases. I love them - and generally get a lot of compliments that other people think they are great. My latest is from Silk Innovation, my previous was a Spigen.
    I can carry 2 "flat" cards (no raised numbers/letters, like drivers license and Costco card) and 2 CC - or a mix of CC, ID and a couple folded bills.
    When my phone didn't include my ID, I had a tendency to misplace it... now, I know where it is when I'm not home.

    Went back to my tried and true leather case, complete with all the battle scars.

    What made you go back? Or is it just temporary.

    Good question, specially when the leather case looks the worse of most all my cases.

    I think I just like the fit of the case and it offers screen protection inspite of being thin and low key.

    I also like the looks of aged leather and this fits that image.

    I was thinking of getting a black or saddle brown but I am sure the 7 will be a different size and/or shape so I will wait until then.

    Have you settled on a case or keeping switching?

    After 3 phones without a case, I decided to get one for my new 5X. Picked up the thinnest one with >4.5 stars off Amazon. Hope it doesn't look like crap! :)

    I switch cases, sometimes daily, depending upon the activity. Mostly I settle on the Kavaj Tokyo, now in black. The saddle browns ( Apple or Kavaj) just don't last. It's light, holds a few cards or money too. And with the bare iPhone buttons, it's easy to operate.

    I use the Kavaj Dallas for the gym, since the wallet style covers the front. It also holds my gym card, license and a $20 bill. The saddle brown doesn't get as dirty because I grip it differently. It has great grip.

    I use the Tech 21 case for working on house jobs, or wet grimy areas since I know the leather wouldn't stand up. Or if I know I may increase my chance of dropping the phone. I like the size of the phone in it, but after a while tire of the 'plastic' feel and bulk.

    For beach and fishing it's the LifeProof. And skiing. But I'd never use it for a permanent case. Don't need that much protection. And dislike the screen cover. Fun to take underwater photos with it.

    So I will never use one case exclusively any more.

    A naked phone, is just to risky for me. And could never sit it down on a metal table, for example. A flaw in the Apple design, that I have long complained about.

    Got bored and ordered another case. It was a case or the SE and the case was less expensive by far. :D

    I know that feeling all too well!

    No problem and enjoy it.

    PS: I've seen similar cases but with cutouts for the buttons. Don't know where they got them from.

    Hey what a coincidence, got bored with my black Apple leather case and ordered the Spigen Liquid Crystal as well.
    There's a 20% discount for those interested.

    Thanks Tony E, I cancelled my order and re ordered it with the discount code.

    Considering it's coming from Irving, CA, you will get it days before I do. Please post your take on it.
