    I bought the Trident kraken and here's the deal. I love the built in screen protector, the looks and how well it is covered.. However, I've decided it adds too much bulk to the phone (can't get it out of jean pockets easily) I don't like holsters as they tend to get snagged on things at work, so I am looking for something thin, but still rugged. Any suggestions? Also, I will more then likely be getting the extended moto battery soon so I'd like it if it worked for that as well..

    Having tried multiple cases until I found the perfect fit for the X I finally was extremely impressed by the durability and thinness of the otterbox commuter case.

    I've looked St some pictures and the local best buy has some. I may pick one up if I like the thinness of it. Plus I saw on the otterbox site that it works with the extended Motorola battery so that's a plus as well.

    Anyone have any pictures comparing the Commuter to the Defender or the Kraken?

    I like the protection of the Defender, but a smaller less bulky case would be nice too.

    I have a Otterbox Commuter coming this week, can't wait to see how it compares to the Defender.

    I looked at the Incipio and at the Seidio websites, they all look good........decisions, decisions.

    I love the Commuter. The only negative was that it covered up the front buttons and made them a little harder to push. It probably wouldn't bother me now, but when I got the Droid X, I was not yet accustomed to the key layout and needed to be able to see it. (The Evo that I came from had the home and menu keys in the other order and that's what I was used to.)

    Same here. Those front buttons are back lit so they can be seen in dark situations. The commuter covers them and in low light situations ur basically guessing at which button ur pressing.

    After reading these, I may go with the invisible sheild covering.I just need minimalist protection for drops. .im wondering if I should wait till I get the extended battery before I do it though, because when that stuff is on can I remove the battery cover?

    Well I got the Commuter in the mail yesterday, and I hate it.

    What a cheap and crappy design. I really only left it on my phone for about 2 hours before I couldn't take any more. The plug in cover just hangs out, won't stay in the ports, and drove me nuts. The plastic outer case was too slippery and I never felt like I had a good grip on the phone. Glad I didn't put the screen protector on, now I can sell it as new.

    The Defender is back on.

    I have the Kraken, the Defender, the Commuter, and the Incipio.
    Kraken and Defender are both great cases that offer maximum protection, but they are too big to pocket.
    The commuter is junk, plain and simple. Doesn't fit good, just a crappy case....only had it on the phone for about an hour ( which I have for sale if anyone wants to try it.)
    The Incipio is a great case, very thin, still 2 layers of protection, and is easy to pocket. You have to add your own screen protector.

    The commuter fits very well and it's anything but "crap". Other than the slightly slippery feel of the outer case, I don't have any idea what the negative reviews are about. Good grief.
