Speck GRIP Case for Pixel
Speck is another highly trusted brand that is often sold in carrier retail stores. Speck was a launch partner with Google on the Nexus 5X and for the Pixel, they have multiple choices.
Speck's (military grade) Presidio Grip case is drop-tested and approved for 10 feet drops. It's available in blue or black starting at $39.95 and then there's a clear case as well.
The sides and the back of each case have a soft rubber that squeezes out some slots in the plastic for added grip. The Pixel is a slippery phone. If so, these cases will be the perfect alternative while offering plenty of protection.
