This will be the second OtterBox product that I have reviewed. The first was the Otterbox 1920 Palm Treo Case
a little over a year ago. This case was aimed at the hardcore outdoor enthusiast. It was nearly indestructible... but not very practical for everyday use (unless you work outdoors every day). I could totally understand the usefulness and concept behind this case, but convincing my friends of this seemed near impossible (keep in mind, these are the same people that sit behind a computer screen all day and never do any "outdoor" activities). OtterBox must have heard similar reactions from others, as they now have two distinct lines of cases for your valued electronics: The Armor Series, which is rugged to the extreme, and the Defender Series, labeled as "semi-rugged". Today we will be looking at the latter, in the OtterBox for iPhone Defender Series.
OtterBox makes several different cases for Apple's iPod, so it only makes sense that they would have a line for the iPhone as well. The case arrived in the retail hanging package you see above. There is a contents list on the left side of the package and a small features list on the right side. Below is a complete list of features and specifications, borrowed from OtterBox's website.
Inside, we find the iPhone case in a bubble-wrap sleeve as well as a full-color, double-sided installation sheet.
