As much as I love the look and feel of the 4G, I know I'm going to have to cover it. My research led me to Otterbox, Trident, and Ballistics. As luck would have it, I came across 2 people with CRACKED Otterbox cases. Also, I don't believe in buying the crap that comes on Mall carts, so I was planning to buy online, and couldn't find Otterbox with color options anywhere online for reasonable prices.

I fell in love with the look of the Trident Kraken series. I preferred the red, and my wife, of course, could not make up her mind. Then, while having a bid on ebay for a pink Kraken (for my wife), I ran across Ballistics. The Hard Core series with its FIVE levels of protection immediately caught my eye. Bulky is a word that comes to mind, and is immediately shoved out because of the sheer size of all 5 layers. However, the 5th layer is optional and is easily removed (a plus for me), and the LG series with 3 layers is perfect for my wife. It even has a built in kickstand to replace the 4G's. It's prone to popping off, but is easily reattached.

Here's to hoping we'll be satisfied.
I love my ballistic hc case, it is wonderful. without the optional layer, the case isn't too horribly big, and will slide into a pocket fairly easily. testing for the ballistic (can be seen on youtube) includes a 15 and 25 foot drop test, along with running the phone over with a car. the car warped the case a little, but the phone survives all three tests without a scratch.
