I'll second this... I use their active case with the holster, and have dropped my old phone (GS2) several times without issue. I also laid it in the top of my wife's acadia's hatch back near the hinge... I closed the door 4 - 5 times trying to figure out why it felt like it was not closing properly. When I went to look for my phone later, I realized where I had left it... Panicked, I went out to the car expecting the worst... I opened the door and the only problem with the phone was the case had a nice deep indentation in the "firm" plastic backing, but the phone was fine. They have a version called OBEX that is waterproof too. They do not add A LOT of bulk, but any good case will add some bulk. I had the holster break where the pin is inserted into the plastic for the clip. I took a picture and sent them an email. The sent me a new clip/holster for free!
I also had an otterbox defender back when I had an iPhone 3GS (it was a gift
)... It was an extremely tough, but extremely bulky too.
Both cases feel good in hand. It mostly comes down to personal opinion, or which company has the color you like
