I bought this cover from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006Y5E07Y/...C1_cs_sce_dp_1

And it works ok, but it is a bit "loose" and the edges wander and separate a bit too much while holding/using it.

Does anyone else have a link to a similar silicon/TPU cover that has the IR port and is much tighter and slightly more difficult to remove/stays in place?

Thanks!

That's one of the problems with silicone covers on these big screen devices -- great for bumps and knocks but physical qualities of the material does not lend it to a good fit when much of the material is missing and cut out. To get the strength needed the case ends up a bit bulky. I have the case pictured and the cut outs to access ports are annoying because of the thickness of the material.

I would like to see something with a thin TPU interior combined with a thin silicone exterior thus utilizing the best qualities of both materials.

It's not as stiff as the TPU case i got for my 7 Plus, which means it's easier to get out, but it's also a little easier to push out of the way when you're near the card slots and IR. I do like that it's not as difficult to push the power and volume buttons like on that other case, though.
