    Howdy EDCers,

    My first smart phone, an Apple I Phone 6 needs a protective case. I would appreciate any suggestions on what you think is a good case. I originally thought I might be able to pass on a protective case, since I bought the Invisible Shield (glass). The Shield is a good addition to the I Phone since it's compact and thin and will protect the screen, but I believe a case will be a better way to protect it. Smaller the better, but I realize you can only get so much protection due to size.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Check out Magpul's offerings, very low profile if you go for the executive version. Peli also puts out a nice product, and I always used to like OtterBox commuter series.

    I'm also a big Magpul fan; however, they are not available yet. I bought a Ringke Fusion to protect it in the meantime. Not a bad case and has 'plugs' for the charger and earphone ports, which is nice.

    I put the otter box on the 6 plus this week. It makes the thing a brick, but i trust it. Touch ID still works with it great! I had the tempered glass while waiting on other option and liked it, but it shattered with no drop. Did its job protecting the screen though!

    I used to use a LifeProf but now I have a Otterbox Commuter. Dropped it a couple of times and you can't even tell. Not as bulky as the LifeProof either.
    Works for me...YMMV

    Does it have a belt clip or is that just the Defender?

    I didn't think about that. It does not have a belt clip.

    I only asked because I prefer a belt clip when wearing dress pants. Most phones are too bulky in front pockets unless I'm weaing jeans or cargos (neither of which I get to wear to work).

    I have the Pelican Voyager. It's slim and I've dropped it twice from about 5' on concrete and it just slightly dented the case. Saved the phone for sure. Also has a belt holster.

    I really like my spigen tough armor. I'd recommend checking out their whole lineup.

    I've got a 6+; iPhones aren't water proof, so I'm planning on getting the LifeProof Nuude - when it finally becomes available. As of this writing, LP hasn't released cases for the 6 or the 6+, as they do not have a pre-release agreement with Apple. Apparently Otterbox does, and, although OB and LP are owned by the same corporation, they operate independently. The OB cases are not waterproof, at least as far as I've been able to determine. That's why I want the Nuude. LP states that cases for the 6 (both Nuude and Fre) will be available by the end of this month. Not certain when the Nuude case for the 6+ will be released. There has been a fair amount of yelling/complaining/screaming/torch-burning over this on the LP facebook page.

    I also prefer the Lifeproof due to the waterproof features. I have a pool and the the kids and others (wife,family etc.) always try to push me in the pool whenever they think they can.. So, I consider it hazard duty.. ;)

    I would not consider anything other than the Otterbox Defender, for my 5S. Love it! Superb protection.
