As someone who loves simple cases that protect your device without adding too much weight or bulk, I’ve found that XtremeMac’s Microshield Fade Case for iPhone 5 does a great job of being simple while still retaining interest. When the case is on the phone, you barely know it is there. At the same time, the gradient transition from translucent to opaque when you travel down the iPhone is visually striking. Let’s take a look and then give two away.

The case is light, and it is simple; it offers next to no drop protection and even less lay-on-the-table protection. Still, if you want something simple, and you are looking to give your iPhone 5 scratch protection and a new look, then  this is a relatively inexpensive way to get both.
