Bumpers: A bumper case is basically a protective band that wraps around the edge of the iPhone. Although a bumper-style case doesnt offer the same protection as a standard caseespecially for the iPhone 5s glass and aluminum backit does protect against many drops while leaving your iPhones beauty undisguised.

Recommendations:

Flip cases and wallets: Flip cases offer complete protection, thanks to a screen cover that flips open for access. Although these cases tend to be a bit bulkier than most, they offer a good compromise between protection and convenience. Some also include a pocket for cash, credit cards, or an ID, and a few even convert into a stand for watching videos or photo slideshows.

Recommendations:

Armbands: If you listen to music on your iPhone while working out, you'll want a case that offers shock resistance, some amount of moisture protection, and convenient carrying options. Youll find such cases in the other categories here, but many people prefer exercise armbands, which strap onto your upper arm to keep your iPhone safe but accessible. Recommendations:
