No Otterbox for the Commando?

    I just got the Commando and loving it so far. I had the Droid X and I was on my 2nd (refurb) due to a system issue...then I cracked my screen. It still worked, so I was trying to hold out until my next upgrade. Then my 19mos. old dropped it in water! It still worked, but the SD card got damaged and I lost everything.
    So, I was able to use my Dad's upgrade and I got the Commando. I know this is rugged, waterproof (to an extent), etc., but I noticed there isn't an Otterbox for it. Did they not make one b/c they figured it didn't need it?
    I have the double layer case on it now, but wanted to maybe switch to an Otterbox with the built in screen protector.
    Anyone know if they're coming out with one? Or is there something comparable?
    Thanks in advance!

    Water proof to an extent? I took this beast snorkeling in the Pacific.

    Honestly, the only reason you'd need a case is for cosmetic reasons. The screen doesn't scratch, the outside will get dings and scratches, but other than that, you'd just be wasting your money on a case.

    See also: water tight integrity. It's somewhere around here. This phone is water proof on it's own Just fine. A case to protect the silver plastic Bezel and an understanding of the design of this thing is all that's required to make it Just about bomb proof.

    Lies. 24 hours in the oil fields and it scratched. And you can see all the other little scratches.

    Well get a screen cover? Lol
    I had a screen cover and it got scratched up to the point it was annoying, so I took it off. If my screen is scratched, its not noticeable enough for me to complain.

    Nothing is bullet proof, but the commando probably comes closer than any other phone/device. Just use common sense for your own situations. I know, I know common sense is not all that common these days. LOL!:D

    I haven't found a need for a waterproof protective cover. I take mine paddling and place it in the mesh pouch on my kayak's deck bag. It gets wet all the time from the paddle but it's not a problem. I can use it to make or receive calls or to take pictures. Enjoy it!

    If your worried about cosmetic looks i found a skin on ebay for like 15 bucks made everything that was black now mossy oak camo gives a nice touch to an already rugged phone

    btw skin is sold by "decalgirl" on ebay
