Best case on the market right now for the Evo 3D. Just received mine 2 days ago. So far I've tried obviously all the cases we have here at TPU-Cases, which are great, but lets be honest TPU doesnt provide a lot of protection, the Otterbox Commuter, Case-Mate Pop, and now the Case-Mate Tough. The Tough is actually less bulky then the Pop and feels great in your hand. You will definitely not drop your phone when you have this case on! Also a bit easier to get the Tough off the phone then the Pop or the TPU cases since the inner layer is a removable silicone. No way can you get the Pop off the phone without pulling off the battery door too. I've figured out how to take the TPU cases off without pulling off the battery door as well, but it's not the easiest thing in the world. I definitely recommend the Case-Mate Tough. I'd be surprised if the defender really provided too much more protection and its a much smaller form factor. I wish the Tough or the Pop would fit in the iGrip car dock. It's damn close. You can use the dock to hold the phone but you wont be able to charge the phone with the dock. If it wasnt for that I would use the Tough full time. As it is now I switch back and forth between the Tough and one of the TPU-Cases Smoke Matte cases.
