I have just finished my stint with the Incipio Feather Ultra Thin Case for iPhone 4 (hence-forth "Feather", that title is just way too long). What can I say? I like! The really thin nature of the case and the grip it provides is really nice. Plus, there are some extra benefits too. Keep reading to see all you get with this awesome case.
The first thing you will notice when you open the packaging for this case is that you get more than just a case, you also receive two surface protectors and a cleaning cloth. This is a very nice value for the price of this case ($23.95). The case itself is, as described, light and thin. It adds minimal thickness to the iPhone 4 and has a nice grip too it. I often refer to this as "grippy" plastic. Not slippery, but adds enough traction to be useful and stick in your pocket. The cut of the case is very precise. The back is completely covered except the camera and flash exposed. The case is very flush against the back with no real room for lint to enter. The sides flush as well. In fact, once you slip on the case, it can be a challenge to take it off. This, is a good thing.
The only issue with this case is that it does not protect the screen at all. For example, Apple's bumper case extends past the glass to prevent any accidental scratches, etc. So, to remedy this and make the case as thin as possible, Incipio kindly includes two surface protectors. To make it easy for you, they even include an applicator for the surface protector. The side of the case only extends to cover the height of the silver antenna, so there is still about a millimeter or so of glass exposed. Even with a screen protector, it is possible that the glass could crack if hit at the proper angle.
This is easily one of the best cases for the iPhone 4 if you like this style of case. It isn't rubber, but plastic, grips well and keeps the device thin and comes with two surface protectors. This case not only looks awesome, but protects in conjunction with the included protectors. Oh, and if you want colors, there are a whopping 12 colors to choose from.

As an aside, I wouldn't recommend using the 2nd screen protector on the back glass unless you modify the cutout to accommodate the camera lens and flash.
Bottom line. Looks and feels great. Minimal protection but its totally worth the trade off for me. I love the Feather. Perfect case for me.
I wanted a case that would be VERY minimal, and I got the pearl white since I was bummed that I couldn't get the white iPhone 4.
This case, however, is minimalistic thus it does not offer much protection when you drop it. Obviously, it will protect the back, but the front will get scratched. I dropped my phone the other day while carrying a bunch of stuff to my car. It fell about 3 feet. -_- Very slight scratches around the edge of the front screen. Thankfully a simple black Sharpie marker made it go away..
I'll keep using my Feather case even though it doesn't offer a lot of impact/shock/drop protection. I never understood why people put ugly, bulky cases on a phone that is meant to be SLIM.
I've dropped the phone several times without incident (lucky I suppose to have never hit the scintilla of glass edge still visible). I've had no experience with the wearing described in the other comment.
I can't speak for the included surface protectors- I had already installed a Zagg screen protector on front and back. I definitely recommend some kind of screen protector though.
