As I've said before" Case-Mate POP. Good protection with hard plastic/soft rubber and a great grippy feel on the sides when you are holding it.
Edit: Also, there is a forum just about cases and accessories here on TiPb.

After doing a bunch of research (watching drop tests on youtube ) I decided to go with Incipio NGP.
1- It's out now and fits ViP
2- It's excellent for drop protection as I saw in YouTube videos
3- It does not add a lot of bulk to the iPhone, pretty slim case compared to others.
4- Comes in a few different color options, although I think they are missing some key colors
5- It's only $20 at walmart or $25 on their site
6- Comes with a screen guard too. Bonus
7- Comes with a 1 year guarantee
Check it out. I love it.
1- One downside is that I bought a screen protector on ebay that has the anti glare and anti fingerprint finish. I put it on extremely well. Perfectly centered and no air bubbles. Then once I put on the case, it seems to have somehow peeled the corners off and now there is an air bubble in each corner. No matter what I do I can't get rid of them. Seems like the case pushes in on the corners and creates these air bubbles that I can't get rid of. Other then that, it's great.

I ordered up the Otterbox Defender case last night. Hoping it gets here the same time my Verizon Iphone arrives. I like the Defender as i have kids and i don't have to worry about it as much when they drop it by accident.

I don't really use a case at all. But if I do sometimes, I use the Case-Mate barely there.
When I go to the gym, I use the Otterbox defender. It's a tank and I can throw it around
without worrying about damaging anything. Plus I can't get any sweat all over the phone.

I ordered a Stealth Predator case from Ion. And an Alligator and Ostrich case from Piel Frama. They look sweet. And the reviews on these items seemed good. Pricing is a little high on these items. But the protection and look of these are the best I have seen

I don't know who makes it, but I picked up a carbon fiber case at the Verizon store for $20. I like it. Not too bulky, good for pocket carry. And I'm a sucker for carbon fiber. I'm sort of a case junky though. I don't believe in one perfect case, I usually have several for different occasions. I tend to be hard on phones so I like to have something on it just to keep it from getting beat up. I'll probably pick up an Otterbox by spring time for piece of mine when the phone is on the boat with me.

I got a Griffin Survivor case at the Verizon store. It is similar to the Otterbox, but has more port holes covered. It is bulkier than I thought I would like, but it gives you a real sense of security to have it on. I usually use a lot of cases, but every time I think of taking it off and trying another one something whispers not to, that this case is the real deal in protection.
It is listed as a pre-order on the Griffin site but the Verizon stores have them, and they are also cheaper there. They has some sort of promotion, and it was listed as $29.99, and I paid sale price of $23.99. They will apparently have other colors too. This one is black.
Here is a fun vid on it:

Best overall protection is the otterbox defender but it has a ton of bulk. I guess the question is really what parts of you phone you want protected? I also like the Speck Fitted case and keeps the phone fairly thin but adds pretty good protection. It will also fit the Vzn iPhone
