So I recently got a 4S and I'm a pretty clumsy person so I went looking around for cases but I couldn't really find which one would protect the phone itself from falls, absorb shock and maybe stop the screen from cracking.

Are there any suggestions for tough, shock absorbent 4S cases that are readily available in NZ shops that I don't have to buy online?

You'd do well to break you phone while it's in there.

Check out the Lifeproof case http://www.trademe.co.nz/mobile-phones/vodafone/iphone/iphone-4/auction-508329921.htm

A
 lot of shops sell these are they are quite slim (ish).  Checkout the videos on YouTube.

I saw one of these at a Vodafone store
http://www.case-mate.com/tank/

The only thing I can think of that would be safer is to keep the phone in an actual tank.
