    I've tried and own the Otterbox Commuter, Otterbox Defender, Trident Kraken, and Incipio Silicrylic.

    Right now the Incipio is on with a Steinheil Ultra Crystal screen protector.

    I still love the size and protection of the Defender, but I like to pocket the phone so the smaller case is better for that. The Commuter is junk, total junk. The Kraken is a great case once you remove the built in screen protector, but again it's big so to pocket is hard.

    I don't even know who makes it, but I got a silicone case off Amazon for $4 (including shipping and tax). I *love* it!!

    Otterbox is excellent just the holster that I got a problem with. The belt clip is made chip. Ive had it for like five days and the clip broke on me today. .highly disappointed. Just wish someone can put just as much effort on a clip as they do a case

    I have naztech vertex. I got it less than a week ago and so fari like it. It is much cheaper than any other major cases but its quite stylish and above all it's lint free. I heard it is discontinued but it is easy to find one that's cheap

    Case for Extended Battery

    I have a Droid X on the way and it is being sent to me with an extended battery and cover. Anyone have recommendations for a case for that if one even exists?

    I use the bodyglove case with the kickstand. I don't use it for protection though, I use it so I can clip it to my belt.

    No. I have no need for an extended battery. I'm usually close to a computer or in the car.

    +1 to that. The phone comes in a case of it's very own that works perfectly, and the glass is Gorilla glass, which is pretty darn tough, and on top of that there is the insurance.

    In harsh environments, I can see where a case might offer more protection from something hitting the phone in your pocket hard enough to break it and not kill you, but for most people, cases and screen covers are like plastic on furniture. I like to use my phone until it's time for a new one, not preserve it so it's in perfect condition and completely obsolete 2 years down the road.

    I can respect that. I work in harsh situations occasionally, but sometimes it can get dropped or thrown, and my insurance is not cheap.
    Also, I threw my phone out of the car window on the highway to prove to my wife that I don't care about the phone at all compared to her (newlywed squabbles). I tried to through it far enough to hit the grass, but im not.known for my pitching arm, and it hit the rumble strip.
    Went back and got it and it worked fine for 5 more months, the screen wasn't even scratched, but the top of the frame around it was gouged away revealing how durable the metal was that they made the old D1s with.

    All in all, I think I proved my point to her ;P
