Default Which rugged case would u choose and why?

My previous rugged case was CaseMate Tough for Nexus One, served me well for 2yrs.

Now that i've bought HOX, i'm thinking of trying other case.

Which would u prefer and reason why... Best if its based on previous experience..

1) Ballistics HTC ONE X BALLISTIC SHELL GEL (SG) SERIES CASE
Link: http://www.goballisticcase.com/produ...sg-series-case


2) Seidio CONVERTŪ Combo
Link: http://www.seidioonline.com/htc-one-...-hkr4htnxg.htm


3) OtterBox HTC ONE X DEFENDER SERIES CASE
update: Official Otterbox Defender case up on their website:
http://www.otterbox.com/htc-one-x-ca...efault,sc.html


4) CaseMate Tough Case for HOX
Link: http://www.case-mate.com/HTC-One-X-C...Tough-Case.asp


5) Trident Case Kraken AMS for HTC One X
Link: http://www.tridentcase.eu/lang-en/ht...for-one-x.html



If there are anymore "rugged" case available for HOX do tell...

update:
Some videos from respective manufacturers to help you decide:



Case-Mate tough ( but i don't think my phone would fly that far)


Can't find any actual Seidio case test, only this one 4mins + of some kid trying to kill his phone and claims he's using Seidio Rugged case aka Convert:

I would go for Trident because I prefer having a device that looks cool while having the protection I need.

Trident not only looks cool but it has almost everything I would want, kickstand, optional car mount (don't need remove case for car mount), tripod attachment, port plugs (keeps dirt and dust away from Ports). Impact protection, from their vids could even survive drop from 2 storey building (not sure if it's really true) only thing it doesn't have built in screen and camera protector like otterbox, but they do provide a static cling film. Just that I never used their case before so not sure of the quality

Isn't the Ballistics HTC ONE X BALLISTIC SHELL GEL (SG) SERIES CASE
more inline with Otterbox' commuter series and trident's aegis ?

in any case I went for the shell gel series

Looks like it, but Ballistic doesn't have anything on par with Otterbox's Defender or Tridents Kraken yet

Received email from Ballistics they won't be making the Hardcore Case that would be on par with Otterbox's Defender and Trident Kraken:

Hello,


Thank you for your interest in our Ballistic cases. Unfortunately, we will not be producing a Ballistic HC case for the HTC One X at this time. However, I will forward your request to our Engineering and Design Team for future considerations. If we can assist you with anything further please feel free to contact us.


Thank you,

Cindy

I would use a holster, so the http://www.seidioonline.com/ProductD...=BD4-HKR4HTNXG is out. (plus, they have bad pics, I can't tell what's going on there...)

The http://www.tridentcase.eu/lang-en/ht...for-one-x.html is enticing, but I don't know about their screen protector. I'd have to read some reviews. Although I don't expect I'd use the holster, it has a USB protector (which looks like it provides functionality), does not have a superfluous lense guard like seidio model (after all, it's inset so far...) and offers a nice kickstand! Looks slick enough too. I fear not bulk.

I dunno about the Ballistic case... they don't ahve enough info to sell me. Maybe. Seems a step up from what I have now, but lack features the kraken has...

There isn't an otter box, and if there will be is questionable. Plus, what I read about their built in screen protector is all pretty much negative - besides, it doesn't seem like any more than a normal screen protector...

Kraken gets my vote.

Really like the Trident Kraken case. I like the fact that is it like the Otterbox and has a built in screen protector. Phones arrive Tuesday and wish these companies would hurry and get their products out to market.
