As I mentioned in a previous thread, I picked up a Ballistic Smooth Series case and I really like it.

I'm going to grab one more case for outdoors stuff, but don't want something as big as an Otterbox Defender.

I spotted this case from Trident and I'm thinking of buying it, but before, wanted to run it by the people in this forum and see if you guys have had any experience with Trident cases, positive or negative.

This one looks about as thin as you are going to get and still get adequate protection...hopefully some of you can give some good input on Trident quality.

Just picked this up in black. Good quality. Covers everything and even has dust filters where speakers are located and all ports are covered. Only downside seems to be the very soft silicone part which attracts tons of dirt and dust, and I'm not sure how durable it is. But I guess that's always an issue with very soft silicone. Seems to be great protection and keeps the phone fairly thin. Will see how it goes. I wanted to keep my Otterbox Defender because I much prefer the almost plastic like rubber they are using now, but I put a skin on the phone and it's just a little too tight I think.
