I hate cases that don't have the opening for the Apple logo on the back, it just messes up the aesthetics for me. And since this one is also form fitted and has the extra cushioning on the edges and corners, it looks like it would really do the job. However, we won't know if we can even purchase one of these until March 11th when the Kickstarter project is either funded or cancelled. So if you are like me and think having a case that includes insurance for breaking your iPhone thrown in (you do have to pay what amounts to a $50.00 USD deductible if you do break your iPhone in the case), then perhaps you should head over to the <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cellpig/cellhelmet-1st-and-only-case-that-guarantees-the-i" target="_blank">Kickstarter page</a> and put your money down.&nbsp;</p>
