    I just got an iPhone 7, and I'm having a rough time finding a specific case that I want.

    I'm NOT looking for different case recommendations, I want what I want and wondering if anyone can help me find it. For my old phone I had a soft rubber case. The kind I could squish up into the palm of my hand if I wanted to. I found those cases are really light, don't add any significant size to the phone, protect it pretty well from falls (it has some bounce to it), and MOST IMPORTANTLY...

    Sticks to the top of my amp when I'm playing, without budging!!!

    My problem is that everything I look at on Amazon that says soft, or silicon, or gel, or even rubber - is a smooth plastic like cover that doesn't work. I ordered one that fit the description best and it was a no go. All the others seem the same.

    Does anyone know what the material I'm talking about is named, specifically? Or know where I can find it?

    Thanks.

    Sorry to be captain obvious here but I'm assuming you can't remember from whom you purchased your last one like that? :D

    Actually I'm interested in the suggestions as well. I like everything on your feature checklist.

    Was going to note that they don't have it :). Gettin concerned that maybe they don't make them anymore.

    ???

    I assume that's a joke, but I don't get it.

    I found this, so I think now I just have to find a silicone case.

    Thanks. The Belkin one I'm pretty sure is like the one I bought that is hard plastic.

    The apple one I'm pretty sure is what I'm looking for (I checked it earlier) yet it's tough to drop $35 when I know I can get the same thing for anywhere from $.99 to $10.

    I've got to keep searching. Asked questions on 4 of them in Amazon, and got back 4 nays on whether they're bendable soft rubber.

    The search continues.

    Sounds like you may wind up wrapping your phone in saran wrap and coating it w/silicon chalk yourself, making you own case..

    (You know you're a redneck when: You make you own iphone case.)
