    I'm looking for a case for my Droid Ultra in lieu of the Otterbox Commuter. Something that also has the rubber sleeve and hard shell style. The only reason I don't want to go with the Commuter is because it seems they used a different type of material since my previous experience with them (I had a Droid RAZR in a Commuter up until recently) and it's much more firm now and thus more of a pain to press the power & volume buttons. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Oh and I don't want anything huge like an Otterbox Defender.

    There's the Seido Active (it's now been renamed to something like the duo) I had one on my Nexus, and it was brilliant.

    I cant even think of a complaint.

    I just checked Amazon to no avail. There doesn't seem to be much choice in the realm for this Droid Ultra honestly. Am I looking in the wrong place, perhaps?

    I believe that there are no Seidio cases for the new Droids.

    The Incipio Dualpro is a lot like the Otterbox Commuter - maybe better. I've used the version for the Droid Maxx. The only thing I don't like about is that the hard plastic outer case is pretty slick. Another potential issue is that there are no covers for the haedphone jack or USB port, if that's important to you.

    Or, on Amazon, cheaper: Incipio MT-030 DualPro for the Motorola DROID Ultra - Carrying Case - Retail Packaging - Obsidian Black/Charcoal Gray: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Do you know off-hand if the silicone layer is quite firm like the current Otterbox Commuters?

    It's thinner than the commuter. So, I guess, not quite as firm. It's lighter, though; it makes the phone feel less like a brick in your pocket. (That was my main problem with the commuter. The phone is already heavy. The commuter makes it ridiculous, IMO.)

    Well, I picked it up, so hopefully I like it once it arrives lol.
