    When I first got my iPhone 6 Plus, I got a Newtrent brand Trentium 6L case. It's advertised as rugged and durable, but this week, it started to develop a hole in the front cover over the home button. So now I'm in the market for a new case - one that is truly rugged and durable and won't start to tear like the one I have now.

    I want something that has a front and back cover so it protects it from all angles. It doesn't necessarily need to be water proof, but water resistant would be nice. Also, not too bulky if I can avoid it.

    I've looked around and it seems like Otterbox may be the best option, but I've read mixed reviews so I'm not convinced it's the way to go.

    I'd like some expert opinions on what I should get. I saw some cases from Mophie that apparently recharge your phone which is pretty cool, but it looks like those aren't designed to protect your phone as well as other cases so I may have to pass on that.

    +1 for RhinoShield & screen protector combo. Love it.

    Father in law has SupCase. He's happy with it but plastic screen protector is garbage.

    What about LifeProof FRE?

    I was considering a Lifeproof. Is the FRE the one that also charges your phone?

    Although I do find it weird how they're called "lifeproof", but the warranty is only good for one year.
