Best heavy duty rugged iPhone 14 case

These don't look like heavy duty rugged cases. The OtterBox Symmetry is a good case, but it's one of their least heavy duty and rugged. The Commuter and Defender are the heavy duty and rugged ones. And they're not near as bulky as they used to be. The Commuter on my 12 Pro Max feels similar (in bulkiness) to the Apple Leather case I had on my 6s Plus.

I recognize the popularity of the heavy duty cases but..... We have around 200 mobile devices in management. They get severe use in kitchens, order picking, delivery and maintenance or construction tasks. The VP/owner who IT reports to will buy popular heavy duty brand cases. Others will buy decent moderately priced and also more trim such as Spigen cases.

The point in this is we'll get a small stack of devices that we take to Apple store to get repairs. That stack always has broken screens I have to take out of those fat and ugly expensive cases.
