    Getting a rezound this week and an looking for a durable case that fits in a front pocket of Jeans well. I do construction so a good impact is always a possibility. Haven't ever broke a phone in my pocket but don't want to either. Been looking at the otter box commuter series but looking for other options as well.

    Thanks much!

    I'm in construction as well, I use the defender with the hip holster, very easy access even when kneeling on a roof or in a tight spot

    Thanks for the reply but I need to wear a tool belt most of the time so I am not sure the defender series would work well for me. I also prefer in pocket carry when not working.

    Just switched from a Defender to an Incipio Silicrylic case. Mostly for the same reason, an easier fit in my pocket. Really liking it so far. Might be what your looking for.

    Is this kind of case sticky like silicone? I want it to slide in and out easily (get your mind out of the gutter!).

    Thanks!

    Ah, I rarely wear my tool belt, I normally do have a drill on my belt though, but I do not recommend the defender for I'm pocket, its bulky and will turn your pocket inside out, good for usingthe phone on a roof though

    I haven't noticed it being sticky. The soft case has a hard shell that covers the back and corners.

    Is the silicone and hard case molded together or two pieces like the otter box?

    Otterbox Commuter. Best case I've ever had for any of my phones and its a great solid case for the Rezound as well. Fits great in my pocket and doesn't bug me when I'm working (network technician, do a lot of walking around, getting under desks to computer, climbing around rack mounts etc...) its a great case, I love it. And Amazon usually has them on sale for pretty close half off.

    I actually use the Defender and it is kept in my pocket 95% of the time. Its a little bulky, but all in all, one of the best cases. I had the kraken II for my inc2 and it was about the same in size/build/bulk and also used it for in pocket also. I think this will be one of those that is "personal pref"..

    Doesn't that grip your pocket something fierce when you take it out?

    I had the Otterbox for a little while, I had two glaring issues with it though...The case collects lint (especially for people who carry their phones in their pockets) and with the black coloring of the case, any lint shows up prominently. And another thing I didn't like...The case covers up the two stereo mics for video recording, so if I want to record anything without having muffled sound, I needed to take the case off (which can take a little while, given the nature of the otterbox cases (not saying it's normally a bad thing, though.)

    I ended up switching to the Incipio Silicrylic case. So far I'm enjoying it, it's not the absolute best in protection, and it's not got as good of a grip because of the Matte finish on the second layer (but that also adds a nice softer feel to the phone, if you like that, and is finger-print resistant)...But it still offers decent protection, and doesn't cover up any of the mics, or the noise-cancellation receiver. It also is, IMO, more stylish, and because the plate is Matte, I can get multiples of them and paint them pretty easily, to add a decent style of customization.
