Looks like Ballistic is definitely making a Nexus 5 case: http://www.trickedoutonline.net/cs/s...ne_make=5&tn=6

Can't wait. I really need the drop protection.

That's great news! They aren't the same big & tough cases they used to make...like for my Evo 4G. But they are still one of my favorites.

Thanks for sharing!

I would love to see them make a Hydra for our phone!

Was I the only one expecting the case to be bulletproof?

I had one for my Nexus 4 so I emailed them a while back. Here's their response...

I really hope that the n5 one isn't as bad as the lg l7 or RAZR v.

Wayyyy too big for those 2 phone. Could not fit it nicely in my street jeans, only fit properly in my work jeans (yes I'm that guy with like 3 of the same work jeans), only because they are of the carpenter ones and I put the phone where the hammer is suppose to go

There are a currently nice slim cases out there. You should probably stay away from the Ballistic line if you don't want bulk.

Great find! The only thing that would concern me a bit is that the case wraps way farther around the front of the phone than most of the cases out right now. I don't know if these usually come with screen protectors, but I imagine it might be a problem for those using thicker (glass) screen protectors. Both the white and black variants both look awesome though!

My nexus 4 Ballistic didn't ship with any screen protectors. I actually have my Ballistic Nexus 4 case stretched on my Nexus 5. The holes don't line up and it interferes with the volume, but gives me peace of mind until the Nexus 5 case I ordered arrives. From what I've read the glass protectors are not very thick so I image they would fit.

I will definitely buy their Nexus 5 case.
