Default Trident Aegis

Just got one of these... pretty impressed.

I have had 4 cases so far (had a half dozen or so for my Nexus 4; none I was happy with) with my Moto X:

Otterbox Commuter: Too hard to take on/off, lousy buttons, slippery.

Amzer Pudding: Meh, buttons not so good.

Incipio Dual Pro: Love it.

Trident Aegis: This is one pretty beefy piece of silicone. While the plastic out piece is not as grippy as the almost candle wax feel of the Dual Pro, it has a better texture than the Commuter, and enough silicone in the middle and corners (with a nice little ear) to make the phone quite grippy, without it sticking to your pocket.
Not quite as easily put on/off as the Dual Pro, but much easier than the Commuter due to no outer hard shell going over the buttons.

Buttons feel just as positive as the Dual Pro. This is definitely my case for the golf course, hiking, and anywhere else I think it may get knocked around.

Hey man great overall summary. Would you happen to haircut any pictures of the phone inside the cases? Would love to see how they look.

Any opinions on the headphone jack? I run a Poetic case because I like the spacing of the headphone jack such I can easily plug into my car without taking off the case.

Headphone jack has a very easily removed cover that moves well out of the way. But the diameter of the case above it doesn't seem like it would support a wide connector (I can measure if you want).

Appreciate it. I went ahead and took pictures to give you a good idea. In terms of numbers: I'm hoping for around a 15mm clearance; whether it is at least feasible to trim the hole to make it so.

Oh no... unless that plug has an abnormally long sleeve, it would never fit.

Why is that plug so large?

You could always get a short extension cable with a smaller plug.

I have the Seidio Dilex case w/ holster, and really like the look of the Aegis case better, but the lack of an available holster makes it a non-starter. Does anyone know if the Aegis case works well (or at all) with the Seidio holster? The dimensions listed on the Trident web site indicate that the Aegis case is 0.15" taller than the Dilex, but that's probably from the "points" at the ends, not the center - where the clip would hold the case in the holster.
