So , thanks Krakerx..... tell us what is it made of?
The ebay ad doesn't state it's make up.
Ive got a TPU on mine and it STILL fits in my front pockets and DOES go in and out easy without hanging up.
Does YOURS still have pocketability? Does it hang up going in and out?
A TPU is flexible, but NOT the rubber sticky feel. It's sorta a slick feel with a few ridges and bumps built in.
A Silicone is too grabby and causes the pocket material to hang,,
A smooth plastic would be ok, I guess..
Can you tell us what it's made of? hard plastic? breakable? and does it ad alot of thickness??
thanks!!

It's a hard plastic internal, covered by a rubber sleeve. Much like the Otterbox Defender series cases. Adds an about a 1/4" ridge about the screen, so you don't have to worry if you place the tablet face down. Total thickness is about 1/2". As far as pocketability, I couldn't tell you, my pockets aren't big enough, even before the case. I can tell you, I have it in and out of my work bag, and I have no issues with it. The IR port is still accessible, the SD card slot is not, you have to remove the case if you switch out the card a lot.

Here are some pictures with a monster can for scale

Not exactly the slimmest, but probably the best for protection. Only other case that's going to be slim and have a kickstand is probably going to be the Samsung's portfolio case, which does nothing to protect the tablet

thanks for the photos Krackerx.... me me... it's a bit too much bulk. especially the 'clips' that extend out at the ends of it.
I'll keep looking. Thanks again for the shots
