Default Anyone found a nice pocket friendly case yet?

Been looking for a case, looked through the accessories bit at the top, I like the gelaskins thing but I don't want a cover.
I have already got some small scratches on the back of mine but sooner or later I know I WILL drop it and want to protect it a bit better than a sticker on the back.
I was loking at that zagg stuff but read alot of mixed reviews.
I always carry my phone in my pocket so don't really want anything like silicone or that gel stuff or one of those cases, like a phone sock - too bulky.
What is everybody using?
Thanks in advance

Do you like holsters? I bought a holster for my NS branded " platinum ". Comes with holster and case and has this nice face in design, which puts the device screen in towards the holster instead of facing the harsh elements on the outside. I love it very much and would recommend it for those looking for a holster/case combo

P.s. The case that comes with the holster isn't all that bad either.

The tech 21 sleeve is nice. Quality leather, protective, tab to eject the phone.

Only dilemma is does it go in head first (so you accidentally hit soft keys when you pull it out) or butt first (so you can't plug your headphones in)?

Using a Jelly case with a Zagg shield. My shield was put on by Best Buy with the lifetime warranty. Cost about $45 total, $30 for the Zagg and $15 for the Jelly case. The only drawback is the case and screen protector tends to attract dust. Otherwise, I paid a bit for this set-up than I did for my Nexus One (which was an Otterbox Defender for $35). Overall satisfied and the silicone case adds very little to the size of the phone. I don't have any problems slipping it into and out of my pocket.

I actually like this case a lot: Amazon.com: SAMSUNG GOOGLE NEXUS S "S" CURVE GEL CASE - BLACK, WITH 6 SCREEN PROTECTORS & 1 STYLUS: Cell Phones & Accessories

It's only $8. It comes with screen protectors and a stylus, neither or which I use, but the case is pretty nice.

The stylus won't even work will it? Unless it's made of sausage meat!

It actually does work, the tip is a foam-type thing.

Oh right! That's interesting - good for when wearing gloves.

Good point, I guess I'll keep mine then. I was about to toss it out thinking I wouldn't need it.

I'm actually selling mine that I bought from eBay just to compare and try it with another TPU case I bought.

see my post in XDA

I found this neoprene pouch on ebay.
It's well-finished, a perfect fit, and only $4 incl. shipping.

I've personally never liked the pouches for any phone.
