Koodo doesnt that I know of at the moment but check out some great cases at SPIGEN .Com
I got this sweet Slim Armour case in Champagne Gold for my Nexus 5 from them for $35 with taxes and delivery

How did the slim armour work out for you? I've read some reports where it sits too tightly with the power button and the button becomes unusable.

This guy did a comparison of a bunch of cases.

I haven't felt it on a Nexus 5 yet but the cool thing about the G2's version is since the buttons are on the back under the camera sensor, they made a cutout for the buttons instead of covering them so stuff like that doesn't happen.

I just bought the Spigen Slim Armour at amazon.ca. $24 incl shipping. Sounds cheaper, I hope I'm getting what I think I am!

These cases look pretty slick as well, especially the black and red, might have to get a second case just for the days red matches what I'm wearing better than the Champagne gold ;-)

I checked with Koodo on Friday and they did not have cases for Nexus 5

Otterbox didn't make any cases for the Nexus 4 which baffles me, and it doesn't look like anything's available for the Nexus 5 either. I'm a bit disappointed, really.

I second the Slim Armor case suggestion (or anything from Spigen, really). I have the slate color for my LG G2 and it's fantastic. Great protection - I've dropped it once already - without the bulk. I don't mind the bulk of a Defender, actually, especially if I use a belt clip, but having a little thinner sturdy case makes my pockets happy.

After seeing what an Otterbox did to my fiancee's S3, I won't be getting one for any of my future phones.

The Slim armor is amazingly sharp.

I haven't had any issues with them. I think the worst one was the Z10 Defender. Apparently it interfered with the swiping geature and they had to recall/fix it.
