Find me an iPhone (3G) case!

I got a 3G on Friday and I want a case for it. There are something like eleventy-billion different cases out there, and they all get reviews from one end of the spectrum to the other.

Do any foosters have a 3G with a case they love? Please tell me about it.

I want something with an open display (I already have the thin display protector on the phone), and I want full access to buttons and ports. I don't have a dock so that's not important. I'd like shock protection, so the thin silicone skins aren't what I want, I don't think.

Incipio makes some nice cases
http://www.myincipio.com/category/00...g_accessories/
Speck also
http://www.speckproducts.com/products/by_device
and Marware
http://www.marware.com/PRODUCTS/iPhone-3g-cases

They all make thin and thick silicone/rubber skins plus leather ones. The thicker rubber ones are quite nice. I havnt tried any of these because I dont have an iphone but this guy has some sweet reviews: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=...us&view=videos

I use this one: http://www.marware.com/PRODUCTS/iPho...-for-iPhone-3G
I think it offers pretty good protection in case you drop it, however, I hope I never have to test it.

If you want the ultimate protection look at the Otterbox.

I just ordered a black PixelSkin from Speck. (Thanks for the link, Lanfarm...) There are just too many frakking choices, so I need to just suck it up and buy one.
