Speck Presidio Grip for Pixel 2 ($40)
Another household name is Speck. A brand of excellent cases you've likely seen at carrier stores and Best Buy.
Every case from Speck meets military-grade testing for drops up to 8 feet directly onto concrete. Meaning these are extremely durable and rugged cases. They're a little thicker and bulkier than some on our list, but not too thick either. It's a perfect middle ground for someone wanting more than average protection.
The Speck Presidio Grip features a strong polycarbonate hard frame. They line the inside with a soft TPU rubber material. However, there are slits in the plastic frame that let the rubber material squeeze through and line the back of the case. This adds to the style, gives you a better grip, and makes it more durable. Especially from drops.
This case comes in four fancy colors, so get one today.
