    I have used an incipio case (don't know what kind, it has a silicone case and thin hard case over it), otterbox defender and ballistic hc cases, and I have a novelty spiderman case that only covers the back.

    What I'm looking for is a case that is rather protective but not too bulky. I've always liked cases being slim. One of the main reasons for protection is that I dont have any insurance on my iPhone, that will change in a couple months. A holster/clip is a plus as well, or be able to go in and out of my pocket easily.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I should mention I'm using an iPhone 4 on Verizon, so the mute control doesn't sit right with my ballistic hc, otherwise it's my favorite case right now.

    Isn't the lifeproof bulky? I know I was looking at it but looked similar in size to otterbox defender.

    The case is a little longer but I really don't notice it. I love the fact that I don't have to worry about my phone at all cause it's fully protected in every way. The case is so much slimmer than the otterbox and it doesn't stick to your pocket at all, I really can't say enough good things about this case. I've taken mine snorkeling countless times and swimming at the pools, no dust gets in at work and I've dropped it a few times too and I can guarantee its saved my phone.






    That'll give you a idea of how awesome they are.

    i just bought the rokbed V3, it is composite light weight and has some real nice accessories. and it doesn't cost a fortune. i tried their aluminum case but it killed my signal by 2-3 bars. so they finally made a composite line.
    happy hunting.

    I just order a SwitchEasy Trim case in red. I've heard good things about SwitchEasy and it looks promising. I have an OtterBox Commuter in Blue/White and it's awesome but I want something a little thinner that will still protect my phone. I also have 2 Incipio Feather's in transparent blue and black and 2 Incipio NGP's in the same colors.

    +1 for lifeproof...I have used just about every single rugged case out there (defender for the 4 & 4s, ballistic hc, seidio convert combo, trident kraken 2), and the lifeproof is by far the best in my opinion. It's no more bulky than a simple snap on case is, heck it only adds 1/16th of an inch to the thickness of the phone. It's slightly longer but actually makes it easier to type in portrait this way IMO. It's pricey, especially with the belt clip ($120 total with tax from bestbuy), but if I added up all the money I've spent on other cases it's way more than that....and this ONE case fits all my needs. For work, I use the Belt clip and when I'm off it slides in my pocket as good as anything else. And as for the screen protector that's built in, yeah it sits off the screen a bit but no more than a defender does...and I've typed this entire reply using it with no problems.

    I've tried a bumper, speck candy and how have a case crown coming tomorrow.

    So far I didn't like the bumper cuz my aux cable didn't fit. Didn't like the speck because it was too shiny and slippery.

    I prefer matte cases so I hope this new one does the job

    I've tried several cases and the Speck is the best IMO.
    I got the Speck PixelSkin HD

    Tight fit and the edges don't get in the way of my fingers when typing on the far right or far left of the keyboard.

    Good Luck

    I have to agree, Speck cs's are a great case-I have 8 colors & I ordered snakebite green on Tues - I'm hoping will be here today. I have tried a lot of cases, and I always come back to the candy shell now.

    Lol, we'll see. Also, did I see a post you made somewhere that you have the Purple LP? if so, when you use it, could I bother you to post a couple of pix of your phone in it - I'd like to see what it looks like. thanks, if you can
