The Tough cases has always been the best I've owned. They have changed the design up for our Note 2 (just like trident, I feel these companies are debuting the latest and greatest with our phone). So I've reviewed it below.

Made a separate review thread here, easier to post a bunch of pics.

Thank you for the info.

My 2 cents: can't see how this is "tough". I used to work in Retail and we carried these Case mate's for other phones, and i can't see how it is better protection than an Otterbox (though sadly they make ugly cases for all the phones I own), or even Ballistic. They seem kinda of .. regular.

40 bucks seems kinda high for a case like that...I know eventually they will come to amazon for a lot cheaper..

For my S2 I had every case there was and it was always the best for being rugged, slim, and awesome grip. The name may make it sound like a contender with the otterbox defender, but its certainly more in the commuter class if thats what your looking for. The design looks different than previous versions, just hope it works out in a good way.

I will say one thing about case-mate, they seem to have good build quality from past products I've tried. They have less pronounced mold lines etc.

Otterbox's are riddled with ugly mold lines everywhere or at least their recent products.

Oops didnt see this thread when i created mine hehe ...

Pre-order is available @ shop andrioid Canada. Another promising looking case. Reminds me of a mix of the Body Glove and Diztronic Case.

It also says "Available!" I'd love this case, but 40 bucks for it without any reviews? I'll wait a week and let Youtube and the forum populate a little ^.^ hehe. But I LOVE the tough case! I had it for another phone and it was great. hehe.

Yup, Available is always good. My tracking just popped up and I should have it in a few, they had quick turn around on the order. Wish they had a red and black option, but they only just put em out
