EatMyTracers All my friends have lifeproof cases for their iphones and they seem really good, I would have one for my note 2 if they made it but I just have an otterbox defender.

Only complaint i have is in the name, "lifeproof" my life is working in a machine shop.......and my case died within 4 hours of a work day. All in all tho, before i broke my case it worked flawlessly.
That's what my roommate/riding buddy uses and it works perfectly. No issues.

Supra well, a lifeproof is pretty expensive though. I just got a bumper case and use the ziploc for riding. Want to get a sealline for riding though. they come out next month for the iphone 5

I'm looking for a case that I can use even during the bad days on the slopes (waterproof?). My only "condition" is that I want it to be low profile. Google search showed me a few cases that made the phone super bulky. I just don't want that because I'd like to use the case everyday in the pocket of my pants. Ideally it would be a second skin. What do you use? Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

As everyone else said, Lifeproof is the way to go as far as low profile + waterproof cases go.

One word of warning: Try to buy it from the official store.

There are a crapton of knockoffs and fake chinese versions that can be found on Amazon, Ebay and even a lot of retail stores who don't realize they're stocking the fake version.

The fake versions look almost identical to the real version, so it's a heck of a lot safer to just buy direct from Lifeproof or an authorized retailer listed on their website.

Aw3bb Lifeproof, only way to go. When I bought mine they had the iphone5 in a fishbowl under water playin to Bluetooth speakers 5' away. All good. I asked the guy how it did on impact, he took the phone out of the water and pretty much slammed it on the floor, music kept playin, dude tossed it back in the water. I was sold. $80 I think, we'll worth it.

Donutz Waterproof phone case. Fits most phones:

And you can dial and control your phone right through it.

BigmountainVMD My lady has an iPhone 5 with a lifeproof case. It is as low profile as a waterproof case gets. You can actually takes them swimming and take videos under water. I want one for my Samsung Galaxy S3, but they haven't made it yet.
