    A+ case. I liked it so much, that I got another one for the wifes EVO. My wife, who is pregnant and a bit sensitive to smells said her case smells. When I took a whiff holy crap did it smell. I swapped mine for hers. Mine has the same smell but it isn't as strong.

    Hers (now on my phone) is so strong I can smell it on the desk. It's on my hands. It smells a little bit like goodyear cologne.

    Mine had no smell, weird they differ from case to case. I did notice the bottom clips are not 100% perfect like the tops, but it still works and looks fine.

    A smell that pungent just doesn't seem right to me.

    Could be first run is out of bridge tooling and are poured/cast Urethane, potentially Silicone. Tooling could be made from an SLA pattern, while Injection molding tooling can be developed. Nothing wrong with doing so, I know I've done it.

    They shall smell until fully outgassed, could also be the release agent used (PVA can stink sometimes). It shall pass in a couple weeks if left in the open. I'm guessing Silicone, since it can smell like alcoholic brownies.

    May Body Glove case for my hero had a distinctive "rubber/plasticy" smell that was kinda strong...
