Commando? Is that the name for no protection? I would call it going bareback. That is my preference. Sure you might pick up a few scratches but that's called life. May as well wear a down coat with a raincoat over it your whole life. You might live a little longer but you might smell a tad.
My thinking on that is that Apples stuff tends to hold it's own in regards to resale value. I always rollover my Apple products and it's easier to sell them when they still look good.. and if they are still under any warranty, even better.
I still got some marks on my 1st gen from having a case. Some small whatevers would get in between the case and the phone and make a small abrasion from rubbing against the irritant. I wasn't aware of it and avoid that now by periodically sliding my phone out if it's case (often while talking with BT) and give it a quick spray of canned air.

The best case for an iPhone is a pair of short pants with cargo pockets, plus you have pockets for a few cold beers.
Actually, I have a few short pants with a gadget-sized pocket on the right thigh. Very handy. That's the ticket. My daughters have ski jackets (for snow skiing) with a gadget pocket on the inside, and with a small pass-thru for the wiring/cable for the earbuds/headphones.
Really, though, I wear short pants with cargo pockets, so that's very handy. The only time I would wear slacks and all that other stuff, suit, sportcoats, whatever, would be court, funerals and weddings, and you power off your phone for that stuff, anyway.
