Here is my palm pilot need, i keep it in my back pocket where i sit on it often, even though you might not recommend sitting on your hard cases, i need to know if they can withstand it. Can i put your aluminum or titanium case in my back pocket and sit on it without the case deforming in any way? Any help would be appreciated.

The titanium cases will most likely withstand the pressure that occurs when sitting on it. The aluminum, however, is not as crush-proof and although your Palm may remain intact, sitting on the aluminum case may cause the case to deform slightly.
The Titanium cases are truely amazing. A while back I posted a clip on WiredGuy.com of me driving over my Titanium case. Didn't trust it enought to put a PDA inside, but in the end the case was only bent slightly. If there was a PDA inside, it would have survived!
Unfortunatly I lost the clip, but I'll repost it if I find it again.

Any thoughts on which of the Ti cases will hold up to "back pocket" carrying best? The slider or the molded? I'm guessing the slider but I'm liking the molded as it looks like it has smoother edges that'll be easier on the pants. Thoughts? Much thanks.
