That looks like a nice case Hacker. I was kinda thinking about one of these with a InvisaShield type deal on the front and back.

That looks nice too, however, I have quite a gut, so wearing it vertically for me is not an option! Wink Laughing Shocked Cool

Haven't gotten it yet, but it looks and sounds pretty sweet.

I've got this: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/elanholster but in brown leather, it looks kinda crappy on the website but its a really nice case and the belt clip is removable which was a big plus for me.

That's a unique looking case. Don't think that I've seen it before.

I first used a rubber incase case, but it scratched up the back and the chrome on my EDGE...

Then I used NO case, which was going fine until my roomie dropped it on a rock. Now I have a cracked outter screen, well, that happened back in June'ish, so I guess its nothing new...

After my OEM screen protector received many deep scratches I switched to that same protective film posted above. I believe its what is holding all of the cracked pieces from falling out. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Waiting on a 32gig 3g to be released before doing an insurance claim =)

I went with the Griffin Elan. The hard case, not the holster or snap-in. I looked at everything they had to offer at BestBuy, and decided on this one. I couldn't wait another minute for a case, because my second day having my iPhone, it fell on the driveway while getting out of the car. Doh! Only minor damage, but enough to show me the need for having a case.

Anyway, so far, so good.

I use a BestSkinsEver (similar to the InvisibleShield).

My girlfriend uses a Speck PixelSkin with a BestSkinsEver screen cover.

WHEN, I get my iphone, I will be getting this: http://www.iskin.com/products_iphone.tpl

An iskin has been protecting my ipod for over 2 years now. When I take it out of the case, my ipod looks brand new. Not a scratch on it. iSkin is the only way to go in my book.

I use the XtremeMac Tuffwrap skins on my iPod touch and iPhone. I like them because the offer a lot of grip with the ridges. I'm like always dropping stuff. They also come with a decent InvisibleShield-type screen protector.

I really like this case a lot for my iPhone, http://www.otterbox.com/iphone-cases/iphone-3g-defender-case/ . They are not cheap and the one problem I have is not being able to plug the Apple composite video cable into the dock connector with the case on. This is a big deal for me because I travel a lot and load up my iPhone with moves to watch on the hotel TV. Not sure what I'm going to do just yet, open for any ideas.
