    Hi All,

    I'm looking into buying a new Carbon Fiber skin for my Blackberry Passport, and I was wondering what the top suggested brand would be. I guess a better question to start with would be if skins are a good option at all, or if the general experience with them are undesirable. If skins are suggested, what is one product a new consumer could not go wrong with? A few characteristics of each product that could be discussed are ease of application, overall look and feel, durability, price, and how well it protects your device.

    A few brands that I've identified so far are (in no particular order):
    1) Skinomi Carbon Fiber Skin Protector
    2) ArmorSuit Black Carbon Fibre Skin
    3) Ghost Armor Carbon Armor
    4) Phantom Skinz Carbon Fiber

    If anyway has any insight on the above products, or if other brands are better from your experience, please feel free to share your experiences. In addition, any pictures of current Passports with a carbon fiber skin on would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    Good idea for a thread.
    I have no ideas on these skins. My concept was simply that they were stickers and I figured after time they would wear out or wear off.
    So, I am interested to hear the responses.

    How will these look on the back, covering the BlackBerry logo or not?!?!

    I love the z30 faux carbon weave back and its. Somewhat rubbery gripiness.
    I fear the passport will be a slippery let down.

    That looks amazing! Where did you get the vinyl wrap? And did you cut around the Blackberry logo? It's still visible from the picture

    The price tag for Phantomskinz is nuts. $43 after shipping ($8) to Canada? Come on. Only coupon I have found is for 10% off.

    Straight outta CB10

    At azn204 - That looks amazing! Was the skin easy to apply? And how does it feel in the hand? Is it too grippy or does it feel great?

    Hey I got the Carbon Fiber one, it was easy to apply, but it is more slippery than the stock back. Still feels great though!

    May I ask if the phantom skinz screen protector is a tempered glass one? Does it cover the curvature of the screen?
