I have an iPhone 4S.

I had an Otterbox Defender, and it was freakin' enormous, and also the rubber part got all stretched out after like... 4 months?  I bought an Otterbox commuter, which is better on size, and is easier to get in and out of my pocket, but the plastic part is breaking around all of the corners, and a piece fell off today... I think I got maybe 6 months out of it, so maybe I should buy another one, but...

Anything better out there?

Wants: can survive biking, running, etc. and small amounts of moisture better than no case, and slips in and out of my pants pocket easily.

Just got this delivered yesterday.  12 bucks is a steal for it.  Similar 2 part design as the GINORMOUS OTTERBOX CASE OF DOOM, but if you do like I did and get the black case for a black phone, it doesn't add that much bulk at all.  The silicone will take the bumps and the plastic on top is smooth enough to slide in and out of pockets- also a must for me.

I use this http://www.amazon.com/Speck-Products-CandyShell-Glossy-iPhone/dp/B005T0DV2K/

I like it because it feels like it offers good protection without adding too much bulk, and covers up the entire back versus having the apple logo open in the otter cases.  You still need a front screen cover (if you need one).  The one thing I don't really like is that you can only use skinny headphone jacks unless you have some sort of adapter.

There's a matte version that has a rubber coating which makes it more slip resistant.

I have biked with it in my pocket and it's fine

I went with the Acase Superleggera pro, and so far I think it is great. Nice feel, not too bulky, and with better access to the headphone jack for larger plugs.

Thanks for the recommendation!
