    Someone on the forum had mentioned this company at some point so I figured I would check them out. I personally prefer the Silicon case - I just hate the lint! After looking through some information on the case I was able to dig up that these guys use a different material/process. Pretty impressive!

    Rearth Htc Thunderbolt Ringke Case Cover

    I purchased the Orange one on Monday - received it on Wednesday. The first thing I noticed was the feel of the case - it's different. It has a very unique feel to it. They use a surface etching feature that actually keeps all the lines of the device on the case. For instance, you can see a slight etching where the battery outline is, etc.

    It's extremely thin - much thinner than even my Case-Mate "Barely There". All the cut outs fit like a glove. Some have complained the case may impact the proximity sensor (turns screen off when on the phone). I have not had that problem at all.

    Colors! They have a color for everyone. Word of warning however, the colors are a few hue level's less than the pictures on the website. The orange I received was not as "bright" as the one shown in the image. I contacted customer support and they mentioned they will fix that and in return offered an exchange for a different color. I picked the lime green so we'll see!

    Support was extremely quick to answer (less than 30 minutes usually). I'm hoping I can talk them into at least considering making a case for the HTC Extended battery. If I could find a thin case with some quality I might actually use my extended battery.

    I'll post some pictures in a few minutes.

    I highly recommend this case to anyone! They are very inexpensive and seem to be durable. I take my cases off 3-4 times a day and this hasn't shown any sign of wear or tear. Pick one up! $16.99 for the case and $3 or so for the 2-3 day USPS First Class Shipping. Other than Vajacases (EXPENSIVE - $85+) this is the best quality case I've owned. Pick one up!

    As for the screen protectors they sale I will let you know next week. I purchased the case and 2 screen protectors for my iPod Touch last night.

    I bought a black one about two weeks ago and I absolutely love it. Couldn't agree more with this review. I love the feel of the case, it resembles hard plastic but it's the most flexible silicone case I've ever used. Big fan of Rearth now.
