I just wanted update this thread with my results so far.
First i want to say that this combo is working out very well for me. It offers superior gripping qualities, the fit has not loosened or deformed in any way. It has successfully protected my Gtab 3 8.0 from multiple drops, water, and filth. The type of material the case is made from is neat, to put it simply, and works really well. The main thing is using it in conjunction with the screen protector, because without it there would be a high potential for chafing of the screen over time. The case is very soft and does pick up a little lint, hairs and such but I've found that wiping it with a baby wipe or something similar cleans it well. Also, it can be taken off and put back on easily for cleaning and/or maintenance of any kind.
The screen protector is working out really well also. It really does self heal like it claims and if installed per instructions, settles in or cures very well.
Overall I am super happy with this combo, it doesn't have a built in stand or have multiple configurations but if you are on the go alot, use your Tab a ton, in pretty harsh environments and don't want the bulk other cases offer this may work for you very well indeed. I expect to be utilizing this setup for a while.
