I've been using the switch easy Rebel for a while now. It offers good protection and u can easily customize it with different colors. I never liked hard cases because its almost certain that it will scratch the phone. you can find these cases on ebay and they come with a free belt holder that fits perfectly with the case on.Windows XP Pro
Otterbox Defender. A little bulky -- certainly not sleek like the iFrogz -- but I have dropped my phone several times and after 2 years and several slides across the asphalt, still not a mark on it. I pre-ordered my new 3GS and had the new Otterbox here before the phone arrived. $29.95 on Ebay.PC, Windows Vista
Vaja cases will, like other cases, add bulk to the phone. It's hard for me to say whether or not it's too much bulk for you. It's been only a minor problem for me.
I haven't noticed any scratching from the case.
The exposed corner (at camera) is vulnerable. I dropped one of my earlier phones a few times and one time it landed right on that corner.imac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Does anyone have experience with either of these cases: if so list pros and cons
I have one of the Rebel cases (not this one). Don't like it because the case covers the volume controls and when holding the phone in landscape I change the ringer volume without knowing it. Hole for earphone jack is a bit small (on the Rebel I have) and I had to ream it out a bit.
I have one of the simpler Agent 18 cases and it is what I use now: No unplanned volume changes. Good fit and volume controls and top switch are exposed. Also very good clearance around earphone jack.

Incase sliders have a good reputation.
One place to get good reviews of cases they sell is the Apple Store:
Lots of data there (just click on a case) to wade through but may be helpful.

I agree. I've had an otterbox on every iPhone I've had. 1st gen, 3G and now my 3GS and this is by far the only case I've found that I like and protects my phone. I go through tons of cases with this phone and previous models of phones. I love this case. Very good protection.HP, Windows XP
The incase slider is great for my taste. Fits nice, not bulky, all black matte finish with good gripability (new word!)24" 2008 imac 3.06 ghz 4 g ram Nvidia GeForce 8800 gs, Mac OS X (10.5.7), iphone 3gs 32 gb
I just my 3GS and a Griffin Clarifi:
The Clarifi seems to be similar to the Incase, only that it has a slidable macro lens built in, that can double as a protector for the iPhone's camera. The camera lens cover on the iPhone scratches extremely easily and if it does it basically renders the camera useless. So the Clarifi is a good investment, even if you don't use the macro lens. It also hardly adds to the size of the iPhone and all buttons remain easily accessible.
