I went to Apple and talked for a long time with a rep who guided me in the direction of a tech21 case. He said one of the staffers there throws it regularly on the floor to demo it and his iPhone is never harmed. I was leaning towards a Speck one, but when I put them both on my phone the Speck case was a HUGE pain to get off, while the tech21 slid off and on effortlessly. 

This is the one I got: http://www.tech21.com/impact-mesh-iphone-5-case-blue/

I also got the Nike armband: http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/pd/diamond-arm-band/pid-921154/pgid-921157

I like it as the velcro doesn’t catch on my clothes (like my last armband did). You need to take your case off to put it in there (Hence why I liked the effortless taking on and off of the tech21 case) and it fits snugly. My only complaint on this is that the actual band is pretty short for me and I think I have normal-ish sized arms – it works, but just barely.

I’ve gotten both of these items within the last 30 days for my new iPhone 5s so I can’t speak to the longevity of the items but so far they’ve been great 🙂
