One of the best cases for the last 7-8 years is the Speck Presidio Grip. This is truly one of the first extremely rugged and durable cases that didn't make you feel like you're holding a brick.
Basically, you'll get a thin case that's super strong. Each Speck Presidio Grip is made from a hard polycarbonate shell. However, they add slits to the frame and squeeze soft impact-resistant TPU material through the gaps. This adds to the overall durability, makes it easier to grip so you won't drop your phone, and absorbs impacts from drops.
"Stop drops before they happen with a no-slip grip".
And if you do drop your phone Speck claims each case meets military-grade ratings for drops of 10ft or more. They're actually drop-tested before going up for sale. We really like the additional built-in screen protection. Not a protector, but protection in the form of an extra thick layer around the front edges of the case.
