I'm a big fan of seidio active cases. They're less bulky than you think, but still offer great protection. Look good too.

Samsung original back cover the PC+ Rubber is best in terms of protection and looks... go for it...

The Diztronic TPU cases are also great, it doesn't look like a lot of protection, but I had one on my S3 and dropped it on tile, wood, gravel, and asphault without any major damage. They also feel and look great in hand. This probably is a bit better than the Samsung case on a face-flat drop since it's raised higher above the screen.
1 Diztronic TPU on its way, thanks

I agree with you, although the Seidio Surface is probably more suited to what the OP is looking for:

I have dropped my phone several times, and I partially ran over it in the yard with my riding lawnmower last week and it has survived.

Default I have noticed a best option for the case aswell extra power supply

i am unable to post the link for outside ones as i am newbee. but go to alibabaDOTcom and search for powercase for n7100
It must be the best option for the phones which are hungry of battery

If you are ok with a flip cover (for screen protection), I have a Kalaideng (KLD) that is very stylish with a (fake) leather finish. Its light, but a bit bulky though.

Otterbox commuter case is the best.

Maybe not along ht elines of what the OP is after but since a lot of folks are brinigng up the Otterbox Commuter...

The RedPepper waterproos case for the Note 2 looks pretty good. Bit bulky, but fully weather sealed, as in submergable.

Readily available on ebay too for like $20.
