    I love my Seidio Innocase in black, but I've heard great things about the Zagg invisible Shield. You might want to look into them both. It also depends if you're looking to keep it free of scratches, or be safe from serious falls.

    I had a body glove, which broke within my return period, so I returned it and got a Seidio. best case by far for a Droid.

    I like the seidio innocase. It's the best one I've used so far and it doesn't add much to the overall size of the phone

    Another vote for Seidio Innocase. It's a two piece case (one fits over the top sliding section and the other wraps around the back of the phone). It looks great and does the job.

    Things to note:

    - Although unlikely at this point, the top piece may not fit properly. Seidio is excellent about getting a replacement part out ASAP.

    - The phone will no longer fit in the Motorola dock. Seidio sells their own dock if you really want this feature.

    - Removing the Seidio case is not easy (if you wanted to put the phone in the Motorola dock, etc.). It feels like it would be easy to snap - something I'm not interested in doing, given the amount of money I shelled out for what's essentially two little pieces of plastic.

    - The top piece may cause a scratch on the base of the phone near the Verizon logo. It's not visible unless you slide the phone open. It doesn't really bother me, but giving you a heads-up.

    All that said, I'm still happy with the case. I just wish that I knew more about the minor cons before I'd bought it. Hope that helps! :)

    I didn't want to spend a lot on a case, so I got one from Hand Held Items. It's a rubberized 2 pc. case so it makes the phone feel grippy. It's easy to remove for docking (I only need to remove the back piece) and it's only about $6 USD. The edge finish is a bit rough but the overall look of the case has a kind of rugged "Hummer" feel to it, so it's fine by me.

    Might help to specify what you look for in a case. Best is always very subjective and you probably won't get relevant replies without such info. Have you checked the Accessories forum? There are a lot of threads on cases there.

    How in the world did you break the Body Glove? I think this case provides by far the most protection and is built rock solid. Fits on my Droid perfectly. Only drawback is that it is a little thicker than other cases but it is cushioned. There are people here who have lovefests with a case and could be for reasons very different than what you prefer. You need to decide what is most important to you.

    Sedio Innocase is what I go with. Trust me. I'm a case fanatic. I'll spend taht $34.50 on a new Ipod to get an incase slider, and Id emand something as good as that on my Droid, and the Innocase cuts it.

    Yes I really wish it could fit the car dock though =[

    Both my husband and I have the Body Glove and love it. My husband says it was the best thing I have ever bought him (besides his DROID). The rubberized texture saved his DROID the other day. We are in the process of moving and he had set his DROID on the side rail of his truck. He didn't think about it again until he had driven about 1/2 mile from the house, all of a sudden he wondered where his phone was. He looked in the rearview mirror and saw that his DROID was still sitting comfortably on the rail of his truck (Thank God!). He said any other hard case and it would have slipped off and fallen to the ground. So I totally support the Body Glove cover.
