Skinomi TechSkin - Pantech Crux
For a barely-there cover for your Pantech Crux, you need look no further than the Skinomi TechSkin. Skinomi boast that the material used in their TechSkin is also used in luxury cars, military aircraft, and even by NASA in space shuttles. It offers maximum scratch protection with "self-healing technology", and adds little bulk to the phone at all; it also has the advantage of keeping the phone's looks at the forefront. This Pantech Crux cover is designed specifically to fit the Pantech Crux, and is also more straightforward to put on your phone than you may think.
The only disadvantage to this great product is that it will not stand up to drops and shocks very well; although it is designed to protect from dents as well as scratches. However, if you are accident prone, the Body Glove cover is probably a better option for you. The TechSkin for Pantech Crux is available from skinomi for less than 20 dollars.

As there are so few good cases around specifically for the Pantech Crux at the moment (being only a relatively recent release), what do you do if you don't like any of the options given above? Given time there will certainly be more Pantech Crux cases and covers released, but as its dimensions are similar to a Blackberry (specifically the Torch 9800, and the Curve models), choosing a standard leather pouch suitable for that phone would accommodate your Pantech with some style. Users have also reported success with cases made for the Palm Pixi. Reiko is a good name to look out for and Amazon.com stock many options.
