I'm somewhat tempted to get this case even though I already have a Trident Kraken.

The Kraken probably gives me the best possible protection I can get, but adds quite a bit of bulk to the phone. That, and I ordered a blue one, which in retrospect, made me wish I had gotten a red one instead.

How good is the fit of the case internally? And is the back rough enough to grip easily? The Kraken even feels a little slippery with its hardcase exterior every now and then, which makes me more likely to drop it than when I had the Kraken on the HTC Evo (had a rubberized exterior).

It's got decent grip. It feels like a smooth matte aluminum finish to the hand because of the paint. Even though it's plastic. This doesn't have a rubberized outer shell. The Kraken will definitely protect better, but I love the look and feel of this in my hand. When it slides onto the phone in two pieces it fits very snugly and tight.

My favorite case. Its both good looking and feels reliable to take a hit while protecting the phone. Very recommended.

Agreed. I usually don't like odd colored cases, but the red goes perfect with this. It'd be cool if they made a black version that had the red chrome line on the back towards the bottom versus the black chrome finish.

Totally agree with you. When I first bought the phone it was thicker slightly than some other phones on the market. So i was looking for a case that was very minimal and thin. I found one, but didn't like the feel of it. Even those this case adds bulk, it just feels really good in my hand. While I still like holding the phone without a case, this Red Body Glove Case is my second favorite way I like to hold my phone. Plus the red makes it look different too.

What thin case? How thin was it? I want something that's basically like a sleeve. This phone feels sooo good in the hand without a case on it
