Flaming red and safety vest yellow might accessorize well if you're a firefighter with an insatiable enthusiasm for Nexus hardware, but they'll stand out like a sore thumb for anyone else. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but if you prefer your Nexus 5 protective case in a more subtle hue, Google just posted both black and grey versions of the bumper case to the Play Store.

Like the more flamboyant options, the grey and black cases are $34.99 each, and they cover everything except the screen and camera. Pretty standard stuff, and certainly pricey, but none of the third-party cases have a "Nexus" badge on the back, do they? Both cases will ship to the United States and Canada and leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days as of the time of writing. Nexus fans have had an embarrassment of riches when it comes to accessory support lately: just yesterday a brand new wireless charger and the book-style Quick Cases went on sale as well.

Of course they're all pretty pricey and will probably be in short supply despite that, so third-party cases might be a better option for the more frugal user. Cruzerlite makes some fetching cases in the same style, with lots of colors and designs to choose from, starting at about $13. Just sayin'.
