LAS VEGAS--After the success of Lifeproof cases, a few companies are trotting out slimmer waterproof iPhone cases, including Griffin, which was quietly showing off its Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof Case for the iPhone 5.

It's rated to be submersible down to 10 feet and comes in a few different colors, though I only saw the pink version in the wild.

Like the Lifeproof, this one's kind of pricey at $79.99. It's due to ship in the next few months.
