Problem with the PDair case is it fits too damn tight. It requires a lot of force to get the phone in and out. If there is any dirt or grit I get the feeling I am essentially sanding the surface of the phone each time I take it out or put it in.
This isn't a problem if you intend to put the phone in and leave it there. But I can't do that, because I need to take it out to put it in my car dock and to put it in my desktop stand.
I had a Piel-Frama flip case for my tilt 2 which I would put on and off for the car dock and it fit just right, no friction. The PDair case for the Captivate fits like its one size too small in my opinion. Of course it may loosen up with time as it is made of leather.
I have chosen to go the silicone case (galaxy S official samsung - body glove style) and put the phone with the silicone case into a verizon droid X leather pouch case. The fit with the silicone glove is so perfect it looks like it was designed for the captivate. Now when I take the phone out of the leather case and pop it into the car dock, it is still protected.
I am still exploring the flip case option, might go with one of the fortte cases, they look very nice, but I am hoping that one of the premium leather companies will eventualy produce a case that fits perfect and protects well.

He's got a date with fate in a black sedan
He plays fast forward for as long as he can
But he won't need a bed --
He's a digital man
