I use the Otterbox with the Pipboy Theme, makes me feel like I need to be rolling on the Capital Wasteland. I don't seem to have too much of an issue typing except for using the number 0 or the shift on the left hand side. The spacebar took a little getting used to but I hit it all the time now.
It does take some getting used to, but I'm very impressed with the otterbox defender series. It is a fearsome case, and could probably also be used as a weapon.

I like my otterbox. I've has to customise it a little but it works for me. As servovestri said there is a typing issue but I punched the crappy screen protector out and it works like a charm.
I was expecting their lastest release today but I'm told by ups it got hung up in custom's :lame:
This is apparently the 3rd version and it'll answer all the typing and sound issue's people are complaining about.
If it's really as good as they say I'll post some pic's on monday
ditto, Otterbox Defender...fits perfect, does not obstruct the screen or the action of the screen.
Has a built in screen protector, rubber armor surrounding the Storm in a plastic case.
Very very solid , and i bet this might even make it water resistant....not water proof.

I just ordered this case today it seems to have some really good potential. I will let you know how it goes.
Cases and Accessories - SILICRYLIC Silicone Crystal Case for BlackBerry Storm 9530 - Dark Gray
I have been using the Case-Mate Barley There. I love it.
Have the feather myself in Black. Love the feel and durability of it. Driopped once without hardly a nick. Some difficulty when popping it off for a batterypull but loosens up a tad after a few removals. Also have the Zagg Invisible shield to protect the screen. I like the feel of it when using the touch screen and provides great protection. Both I think have lifetime warranties. The Feather also fits snugly into a standard belt clip holster.

I bought a Boxwave case (flip cover) which was the same type that I used with my 8830 and which I loved. However, the case for the Storm didn't fit properly - I had to remove the camera to take a picture. So, I sent for an exchange and in the meantime ordered a Noreve case. I lovethe look and the feel of that case. I started to notice a degradation in the signal - so much so that I, not realizing it could be from the magnetic closure at the bottom of the case, wiped the phone and reinstalled the OS a few times. I hadn't been looking before, but when in frustration I was removing the phone from the Noreve case to remove the battery and restart - one more time, I noticed the bars went up. After receving a replacement Boxwave case (which still has a fit problem but the camera slot is OK now), I tried the phone in the same spot in the house with both cases and noticed that the bars are at 4 and 5 most of the time with the Boxwave and at 1 and 2 most of the time with the Noreve. Needless to say, I am using the Boxwave now.
I just googled the case and discovered that others have noted that the hard metal shell is what is causing the decreased signal strength. Oh, well. I guess beauty isn't everything.
