I'm looking at this one at the moment iBikeConsole Lite MountCase Waterproof iPhone 5/5S Bike Mount Kit: Cell Phones & Accessories

I have a bikase handy andy (or something like that), which is a padded case with a plastic screen cover. With this type of case, I think the padded black bag helps to generate heat, and the plastic screen cover as well tends to cause the phone to overheat if the display is on (plus the plastic screen also has a ton of glare, making it hard to see the phone screen). I've been turning my screen off and having cyclemeter announce stuff more frequently for me (cadence, etc). So I would definitely spend a bit more on a case that a) allows for better visibility and b) doesn't serve as a heat trap

The quad lock cases and the one I linked to above seem to meet that criteria for me.
