Skech has recently released a bevy of cases for the iPhone 4 that fall in to two different categories: first are the polycarbonate Hard Rubber ($30) and Rise ($30) cases, followed by the leather and faux-leather Custom Jacket ($30) and Custom Jacket Flip ($40). Hard Rubber and Rise are both plastic slider cases with black felt-padded interiors; the Hard Rubber models are all solid colors, while the Rise cases have gradients that darken as they move further down the length of each case. Apart from integrated Sleep/Wake button coverage, all buttons and ports are accessible in either model, and both come with anti-glare screen guards, cleaning cloths, and a stand. Custom Jacket is a hard outer shell covered in either soft plastic or leather, while Custom Jacket Flip takes the same base and adds a flap to cover the face of the iPhone 4. These versions do not include any of the pack-ins that the polycarbonate versions do, but they feel a little nicer.

Updated July, 2010: Skech has released new colors of Rise, as well as the metallic-coated Shine.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
