It's not the case, it's the phone itself.
Samsung Galaxy S 5 Active (AT&T), Camo Green
~ $400, with contract, if I remember correctly...

Anyone with an ounce of common sense will spend a few minutes learning local custom and laws before they visit a foreign country.

Yup--and like I said, I'd spend the $10 to buy a case.

Yes, of course. However, no one will be able to study every single custom & law. Wearing camo is pretty far down on anyone's list I imagine. Like I said, I highly doubt an american is going to get tossed in jail in Jamaica for stepping off the plane with a camo shirt.

Anyway, this has gotten off topic. I don't really have a uniform, just whatever is comfortable. Could be yoga pants or jeans if I'm not flying too far.

I think if you're wearing camo beyond hunting or the deck of the double wide, international rules regarding apparel are probably outside your sphere of concern.

You're right because I do not wear camo. Never found it flattering.

There are documented cases of people being forced to change and surrender the cammo clothing--even children. That's not the way I'd want to start a trip.

Ok and then what happens when they tell me to take it out to inspect it and find camo hidden inside a case? Besides, that's a special edition phone designed to not need a case, so most regular cases don't fit it anyways.

Pretty much my yoga outfit with my denim jacket which has a myriad of pockets for things like boarding passes, sunglasses, etc. This outfit lacks a belt so I don't have to walk thro the scanner holding my jeans up, it's warm and cool where necessary and it doesn't crease. I also wear around my neck or shove a large scarf or pashmina shawl into my carry-on in case the aeroplane is freezing.
