    I have had my Droid naked since day one way back in novemeber. But today my friend dropped it on concrete. To say the least, there a few scratches on the body. (luckily not the screen). So it got me thinking that maybe its time for me to buy a nice case. But I have NO IDEA where or even whats considered a reliable brand for this sort of thing.

    So I was hoping you fellow Droid owners could hlep me find a case for me. I do have few wants/needs though:

    1. Color must be black
    2. As thin and small as possible for least amount of bulk addition
    3. Maybe a return option from buyer? (this is not required)

    Alright, let me know what you guys suggest, THANKS!

    I know what you mean man, but, that's actually what I would've liked too...but I couldn't find a *decent* enough case to suit what I really wanted...

    That's why I got that pouch, and then one of these

    Try the seidio innocase. I have the black one and it is very thin and light but very durable, and looks great!

    I got a Body Glove for my droid with it for christmas, Loved the case (bigger hands means the extra bulk it added was no problamo) but the things holding the back onto the case chipped and snapped off after quite a few times of me having to take the back off. I'm waiting on my Innocase to see how that does. I was told the body glove is one of the hardest to get off and I can see why. I'll let you know how it is.

    Another vote for the Seidio Innocase Surface. It's very thin, the surface has a nice texture, and it is compatible with the Seidio Desktop Cradle (if that is of interest). I place my Droid in the cradle every night and don't have to remove the case. You generally would have to do that if you used a different case and cradle combination.

    It doesn't cover the screen. I first applied a screen protector before snapping the case in place.
