Otterbox Defender Series Review

I had the chance to review the Otterbox Defender Series for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s this past fall and am excited to say that this case lived up to all of my expectations! First off, the nice folks at Otterbox sent me a defender series case with a Red Sox logo (yes, they make them customized with the Major League Baseball logos). What was really nice was that I had the case as the Red Sox led up to their World Series win... Being from Boston, that was extra special and who knows if it helped a little ;)

 It provides the safety, ruggedness and security that Otterbox is known for. I was able to use it under various conditions here in New England, rain, snow, and sleet and found that while it isn't waterproof, it held up to the usual drops, tumbles and accidents one can expect. I even had the unfortunate experience of accidentally dropping it on a parking lot asphalt in the rain and it was fine (luckily it didn't get wet). Honestly, my heart skipped a few beats ;)

I think this phone case is great for parents since it provides added heft to the phone so that you can pass it to your kids in confidence without worrying if they drop it. Again, it isn't waterproof so if you're really concerned about liquid and spills, you may want to look elsewhere…


Rugged, durable, secure. Also, it comes with a belt clip as an accessory which has been a separate accessory with other cases so that's a nice touch.


Not waterproof… The only thing negative I could say about this case is that after you remove the rubber casing a few times, it may seem to get a little loose around the bottom. Other than that, it's a great case for every day use!
