get this one. it is only 7 bucks and honestly this is the best case i've ever owned. not silicone so it wont get stuck going in and out of your pocket. not a hard case so it can absorb some shock when and if it falls on the floor. it is something in between the two and it has worked and fit very very well on mine. check it out: BLACK Crystal Skin Gel Case Sprint HTC Hero Accessory - eBay (item 280488419647 end time Jul-02-10 16:50:01 PDT)

I would go with one of the OtterBox cases. Both of them are excellent cases. I have the Impact case right now but am highly considering upgrading the the Commuter for more protection.

I have the Sprint silicone 2 pack, the Body Glove, and the Otterbox Commuter. No Seidio.I just can't find anything to make me happier than a naked Hero. I also have several leather belt cases by Case Logic. One is vertical and fits the Hero with a case on it. The other is horizontal and fits it naked. At work in dress clothes it's naked and in the horizontal case. Screen protectors are usless too. Been there done that too. The phone is so sleek and sexy naked. But each to their own. TC

My wife has an otterbox for her iphone and it fits her needs well as she drops her phone a TON.

I have seidio for my hero and am VERY pleased with it!

Where did you get it for $10?? My husband wants one but he thinks it's a little costly. I'm sure if he knew he could buy one for $10 he would be all over it.

Ahh, ok. That's the silicone Impact case. I was thinking you were talking about the Commuter case.
