Default Cases that cover back keys

I ordered not so long ago from Amazon the Case Mate Tough for the G2, it looks nice and seems like it dosen't compromise about protection.
I'm still waiting for it to arrive but meanwhile i'm looking for another case.
I want it to be not so bulky and huge, yet still provide a decent amount of protection, but most important it has to cover the back keys.

From what iv'e seen, there are 3 known cases:
Case Mate Tough - Have it.
Otterbox Commuter - Bad reviews. Looks bad on the phone.
Ballistic SG - Too bulky.
Incipio Dual Pro - Covers the back keys only on the Verizon model, I have D802.

If you have any suggestions, I would be glad to hear them. Thanks

The Ballistic Aspira should be a little skinnier on the sides than the CaseMate Tough, and covers the buttons. Not a lot of cases have that coverage.

Service cases I own for AT&T G2

Glad a thread was made for this. I have been on a hunt for some time for cases with back keys.

I have the Poetic Invuctus case in white. Really nice fit. Only downside is there is no hole for the microphone by the camera (D800)

Also have the Ballistic Aspira case. This one is a little bulkier than the Poetic bit offers better protection, & has a hole for back mic.

+1

It doesnt make the phone too bulky and it provides a great deal of protection. i like it mostly because the screen is extra protected since the rubber part extends past it a little bit.
