    Today, PDair graciously sent me their Rubberized Hard Case ($18, free shipping, no tax). It is a slider case with a soft, rubber-like outside.

    This is the box it comes in (for some strange reason, the iPhone picture/insert was upside-down for mine as the black part should be at the bottom)

    It has velvet-type lining on most of the top part to prevent scratching the iPhone's back

    The back has a locking mechanism to prevent the two pieces from coming apart​

    Aesthetics&Feel
    The case's colors sort of remind me of the original iPhone (which I find very good looking) and the rubbery texture feels great in my hands
    10/10
    Protection
    This case covers all but the front (obviously), bottom, volume buttons, 3.5mm jack, and sleep/wake button so it provides great drop protection
    9.5/10
    Accessibility
    It is a slight hassle to get the case on, the bottom part needs to be squeezed to slide into the top (this can be remedied by putting the bottom on first, squeezing the bottom, and then sliding the top on). The sleep/wake button is surrounded by case, so it is slightly harder to press
    8.5/10
    Build Quality
    There were some seams in the rubber where there was "stuff" in, causing few (1-3) specks of brown, part of the rubber back also peeled off after some use
    7/10
    Value
    At only $18 shipped to you, this is a great deal
    10/10
    Overall
    A great slider for $18
    9.0/10 (A-)
