My 3G lived almost exclusively in an Incase Slider. Actually 3 separate Sliders. Two white, one brown. One Slider sacrificed itself to save my phone from a ~6ft drop onto pavement--fair enough. Second white one got chipped up on a couple more pavement meets. Brown slider eventually cracked on the thin part on the back. This was my favorite, and looked stellar with the white iPhone. Also had a Grey/Green Candyshell (ended up being meh on looks), Black Neo (beautiful, but kind of bulky). The bezel has lots of micro "iPod back" scratches, and the back has very very light minimal mild wear.
Got my black 3GS in like September (?). Was tired of expensive Sliders cracking on me. So it's lived in a new white/grey Speck Candyshell virtually its whole life. I rarely take it off. Like 3-4 times at most. It's black and it's mint. The only wear-an-tear is on the bottom of the bezel where the case is a little flexy.
Bottomline is I love the feel, and form, of Sliders best, but can't argue with the Candyshell. Feels just a little more bulky, but results are great. I think the future probably holds a Best Skins Ever/Invisible Shield and the trimmest/lightest case I can find, or maybe back to a brown or light blue Slider.

My wonderful leather case!ha
I recently purchased a leather case from a online store--plusthing.com. There are 100s styles cases and skin in the store.
It covers the rear, sides, and corners, fits perfectly, it's so light that doesn't make the phone to bulky to carry in pocket.and I got 2 gifts for free--a front invisibleshield & a winding device when I purchase a wonderful case for my iPhone!Haha. Wish you could find your favorite .Good luck!

Hard Plastic Shell
I've tried three of four.
The hard plastic "clam shell" is the best. It slips easily in/out of your pocket. looks good and protect the back from scratches. Doesn't protect the touch screen, but the glass is very scratch resistant. Had a screen protector on but made it difficult to read in some lighting....
The pouches were a pain and ugly.
The rubber soft shells were hard to get in/out of my pocket and collected dirt and lint.

I am using the Black Speck CandyShell. I like the looks and it seemed to have good reviews where every I looked. A little bulky, but at this time it is working for me. I am on the go a lot and keep the phone either in my jacket pocket or pants pocket. I don't have good luck with holsters and the like. I keep catching them on doors, corners, seat belts. Pocket work much better for me.

I'm using the Seidio Innocase II. It's a great slim profile slider case. Covers the bezels. I've dropped my phone twice while using this case. Once i dropped it on its face, and once on its back. It's protected it well both times.
My only complaint is that the case is VERY sensitive to the screen protector placement. If you have a front screen protector, and if its not on perfectly, the case will push it up a bit showing a bubble.

I go naked! That way my iPhone slips easily in and out of my Golla pouch and Tom Tom car kit! I am a little extra paranoid about dropping it though, so I am careful always when handling it; I treat it like it's a baby bird. People do look at me funny sometimes. :o

I just use some standard smartphone T-mobile case I bought a few weeks ago. It keeps my iPhone very snug. I don't like any of the ones sold online for the iPhone since they tend to use velcro. Magnetic latch for me. I went to the Apple store here and they had a sh1tty selection. ATT stores had garbage as well.
