The Incipio NGP Advanced is made with a single layer of thin and light flexible rubber. Ultra lightweight cases don't provide much protection against damage from drops. The NGP Advanced has a "waffle" surface on the back and sides that provides a very secure grip so that you don't drop your phone. The older version of the NGP has a smooth, somewhat slippery surface and many stores sell both the smooth NGP and the Advanced NGP. The black case will remain black. The light color cases will get stained by your jeans pocket.
