If you want a case with some serious protection but without the oversized rugged look, check out the Body Glove Flex/Chrome case for the T-Mobile Vibrant. The three-piece case features a rubberized back cover, chrome front bezel and a removable belt clip.
You start by putting the phone in the back cover, and then snapping on the front bezel. It's a pretty sung fit, and you won't have to worry about it coming undone. The back cover is clad in a textured rubber, giving it great grip in the hand, or on a table or car dashboard. There are cutouts for all of the buttons, ports and microphone. And the case is thick enough so that the camera lens is well-protected if the phone is left face up.
The belt clip fits snugly and secures with a snap mechanism. You release it with a spring-loaded button on the bottom of the clip. If you want, you can remove the belt clip nub from the back cover of the case and replace it with a flat insert. That lets it ride much more comfortably in your pocket.
We've got loads more pictures after the break. The Body Glove Flex/Chrome case for the T-Mobile Vibrant is available in the Android Central Store for $24.95.
