The Skin (iPhone 6; $4 to $16) adds a thin layer of protection to the front and back of your iPhone 6 without the extra bulk that comes with a full-blown case.

This high-quality vinyl skin is easy to apply, doesn’t leave any residue behind when removed, and comes in a variety of textures and colors like carbon fiber, matte black, metal, leather, true color, or wood. As an added perk, you can select your coverage level, with either full or partial wrap available.
