I like the looks of this case, most rugged and waterproof style cases are big and bulky but the Hydra from Ballistic isn’t, it’s rather thin actually and really doesn’t add much bulk. At least it looks that way from the pictures.. Price is $80 and for that you’ll get protection from water, dust, dirt and even drops.. I wish there was one for my HTC One…
