    I like the Turbo 2 and the durability is great. I was going to order a Motomaker with leather back but didn't want to wait 2 weeks for it to come in so I got the black "grid" back one with the soft/rubbery feel (silicone actually I guess). I actually really like it and would love to go without a case, but the metal edge, being so sharp, makes it hard to hold. I've looked to see if there are any bumpers yet but I can't find any. Has anyone had any luck finding a good bumper case? I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to have to find a clear silicone case and cut the back out of it.

    Nice, but not the elusive bumper-only that people have been looking for.

    Weird. I don't see it in black.

    I carried my Maxx naked and never had a problem. The Turbo 2 is just too dang slick. I need a case that covers the back and let's me put the phone face down with a bit of space between the screen and the surface but I don't want one that's bulky, or "sticky". I need it to slide in and out of my pocket easily but not slip and slide all over the place when I set it down or prop it against something.

    As of today, nothing available. I've been checking the sites for Incipio, Case Mate, and Seidio almost every day!

    Case-Mate Naked Tough for DROID Turbo 2 - Verizon Wireless
    I got this one for my wife's T2. She has the red back and the case is clear on the back. Feels good and not too big. I have the Hula Bumper on my Pure but they don't make one for the T2 yet. With all this "green line" BS going on and no indication of a cause I don't want to take a chance. She is happy with this one.

    Every case out there seems to be a hybrid. There are no real silicone only cases yet. My maxx had an all silicone case that was awesome. No bulk whatsoever. Very very sticky. Wouldn't slide on metal, unless you used a lot of force. Hoping they come out with an all silicone case soon. Im trying out my third case that said "anti-slip" on the features. And none of them so far come close to the case I used on the maxx.

    Word to the wise, if it mentions TPU in the description, do not buy it. It's gonna be slick.

    Sorry for the double post lol

    I've found plenty of soft, rubbery cases out there but they all cover the back. I just want a true bumper the covers the metal (preferably clear) to make it easier to grip but leaves the back exposed to the touch. I may have to buy one of the clear silicone rubbery ones and trim it.

    Please post back with details if you do get one and trim it. I want a clear bumper only. I don't want added bulk.

    The one I ordered is due in today. I'll let you know what happens.

    As for the UAG version, it still covers the back. I want a true bumper that leaves the back open but adds grip to the sides.

    This is exactly what I am looking for as well.

    I got it but haven't had a chance to trim it yet. My X-acto blade was dull and I went to get new ones and haven't had a chance to go through and trim it out. The clear one I got was really nice, as far as silicone cases go, and looks pretty good except the seam is a little harsh on it. I plan on shaving it back smooth too to try and make sure it's as smooth as it can be. I'll probably do the trimming tonight and I'll post pics when I'm done.

    Finally got around to doing it and... in short... don't. It loses all structural integrity if you cut enough away to reveal the whole back. The bumper wants to come off every time you pull it in and out of pockets or just try to use it.

    This thread was entitled, "Anyone found a good Bumper yet?". It's pretty clear that the OP is aware of alternatives, but is - in this thread - looking for true bumper cases, even to the point of trying to make one by modifying a non-bumper case. This wasn't about TPU full body cases that happen to have an edge that's somewhat like a bumper, and NOT about full body cases that are grippy, etc. I only started following the thread based on the OP and the initial topic. There are a gazillion other threads where cases of all sorts of shapes and sizes are mentioned or reviewed, and we can all browse Amazon or FB to see loads of cases and reviews. But this particular topic was aimed at discussing bumpers, and it has real value if we can keep it to that topic.

    A modest proposal: let's NOT assume that the OP didn't know what he was asking for. Let's not assume that we should ignore his question, and instead offer suggestions about all sorts of other favorite cases that are NOT bumpers. Posts like those would be welcomed in general case discussions. Here, off-topic posts continue to threaten taking the intended topic off track.

    I was wondering how this experiment would play out. Bumpers on other phones had a harder exo skeleton combined with the tpu liner. Case mate just started selling one for the moto x pure edition, so maybe there is hope?

    I'm using a full clear tpu case that I hate, so any other ideas would be great.

    The case mate bumper for the moto x pure looks really nice. It would be great if they would make one for the T2.

    No idea if they'll respond, but I just wrote to Case*Mate customer service. Excerpt below:

    As an owner of 3 Motorola Droid Turbo 2 phones, I am one of very many would simply LOVE a Case*Mate Tough Frame Case for this phone. The phone itself is rock solid, as you've no doubt seen. While the Case*Mate Tough and clear cases are great, many - perhaps most - of us would love to be able to carry it nearly naked (the phone, that is!). While your full-body cases are sleek and attractive, the phone doesn't NEED to be as thick as full body cases make it. A Tough Frame case would make it far easier to hold confidently, while leaving the lovely slender body fully exposed.

    I'll share any reply I receive...

    I sent them an email this morning and within an hour I got this reply.

    "Thank you for contacting Case-mate. I have asked our product development department if there is ay plans on making a Tough Frame for the Droid Turbo 2 and I was advised that we will not be making one. I apologize for the inconvenience and have a great day.
    Kind Regards"
