Default Which case?

Looking for a case that's:
1. Rugged (at least decent shock impact)
2. Somewhat slim
3. Not too pricey

So far I'm torn between:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DJZ...&pi=SY200_QL40

And

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00DY2..._d_pd_wireless

Anyone know which case or of another have the best combination of shock impact without being too thick?

Thanks.

I have the case from the first link you posted. I've had no problems whatsoever thus far. The belt clip is really secure and the silicon not only covers the phone but it serves as a border around the screen so if you drop it the screen won't even touch the floor really. The case is decent too. Definitely worth $13.

It's not bulky. You can trust the reviews on amazon for the case. It's worth it especially for the price.

I have the otterbox defender series. Due to the design of the case, There's a bubble in the screen protector. I simply poped it out and replaced it with a zagg screen protector. Search ebay, I only spent $30. Still waterproof and my 3 kids literally throw my phone across the room and it's still in brand new condition

I almost went with the iBlason, but ended up going to Unicorn Beetle route. It's a nice case and I really like it. It's a tough TPU throughout with a polycarbonate slab on the back. Looks pretty nice and feels good in the hand--quality materials. The only thing is you have to shave the little inner button nubs off with a razor blade as the Amazon reviews mention.

Good luck deciding.

I own both, as well as just about every other case made for our phone...

I hate the i-Blason, and have since I took it out of the package. Nothing really wrong with it, just not my taste. Inner portion is too mushy, hard to slip it in and out of my pocket, and I don't think anyone would call it "thin".

For "thin and rugged" you are far better off with the SUPCASE. Also look at the TUDIA Ultra Slim Melody.
