Surprising we don't have thread like this for DNA yet.
So its simple. Post photos of your cases, pouches, flip covers, skins with the DNA and also please do post the source / link from where you got it so it can help others to buy the same if they like it.
Cheers! Will post mine soon.

From my Note 2, right in your face....

I'll bite.

This is the Incipio Feather Case.

I paid $23, from DayDeal.com. You can find it on Amazon and, for a little less, on eBay. I was able to drive to DayDeal and pick it up, so I saved shipping charges, and didn't have to wait (I can be very patient, as long as I don't have to wait). DayDeal has also treated me very well in the past, so I'm happy to give them my business, even if it costs me a few bucks.

Comes in Gray, Black, Hot Pink and Blue.

If you're looking for the thinnest, lightest case other then simply putting stickers on the back of your DNA, this case is probably it.

I'm not really sure how much protection it'll provide. I do have another case, which I used when I was on a recent trip skiing, but for day to day use, I really like this case! It retains the sleek look and feel of the DNA, even retaining the curved shape of the back of the DNA. Soft touch paint provides a more firm grip in your hand, something that was lacking in the similar Nillkin case I have. I purchased the smooth Nillkin case (they do have one with dots on the back, but I didn't care for how it looks), and always felt like it was about to slip out of my fingers (came close a couple of times)... the Feather case has no such problems!

If you're looking for a case which you can drop your DNA on concrete, and not flinch, this ain't it!

If you're looking to keep your DNA slim and light, while providing some additional protection, especially from scratches to the back... you may want to give this one a look.

Positives:
Soft touch paint
Ultra thin
lightweight
Displays red highlights of the DNA
Inductive charging works fine with case

Negatives:
Top and bottom edges partially exposed
Doesn't provide maximum protection
Power and volume buttons exposed
Back LED concealed

I have a couple. A standard case with a built in stand. It came with a holster, which i would never use. Purchased directly from Verizon corporate store. It has a nice design that aids in gripping the phone.


Not too much of a lip


I like how designers gave the user a little extra room past the vol up and vol dn rocker


Corner protection leaves much to be desired


Is everyone's flap chipping away like mine? I had to let a fingernail grow out just to pop this thing out


Here's how the back looks with the stand pulled out




Then there is the Otter Box, again purchased from the Verizon store.



The standard 3-piece fare





Finally, fully clothed

This is what I am bummed about.
Lot of nice looking cases, but most dont have cutout for the back notification light
Those that do have it, all look like crap.

A little quick work with a drill and that can be solved.

Got the Incipio dual case, ordered direct from Incipio to get the color combo. Was a little worried about grey/electric green with the employee edition red but in natural light it actually looks pretty cool. You can only see it from the back or looking up at the charging port area. I work for VZW so I'm hoping we'll starting carrying these for the DNA like we do for all the other phones so I can pick up a black/black with my discount.

It adds just a bit of bulk, the soft touch is very nice (similar to the feather the guy further up has) The power button is a lot easier now as well. The case tapers with the phone so it still has that nice feel in the hand, just a bit thicker.
