Speck Presidio Grip Case

The Presidio case takes two kinds of cases and makes them one. Your standard hard plastic, but with rubber grips.

It comes in Black, Marine Blue / Twilight Blue, Graphite Gray / Charcoal Gray, Dolphin Gray / Aloe Green, Robin Egg Blue / Blue Tide.

Speck Presidio Case

The classic Presidio case by Speck has been tested at a 10 foot drop, which means that you really can’t go wrong here. Even without the grips from Speck’s other case on this list, it’s extremely high quality and is sure to last you a long time. It only comes in 2 colors, but they’re both pretty sleek and neutral: Black and Marine Blue / Twilight Blue.

    Pretty much all cases are fugly as a rule I guess. But why do so many look like props out of Transformers? Do people really like that look? I usually use an ultra thin minimal case of some sort or another just to protect from scratches, but I’m pretty “drop” careful in general.

    How about Otterbox? Best protection around, admittedly a bit bulky but the protection is top notch.

    How about best clear silicone case?
