If you are looking for some outstanding drop/shock and scratch protection then the Otter Box Defender Series might be the case for you! If you’re looking for the biggest bang for your buck in terms of protection for your iPhone 5 otter box is one of the leaders. The otter box has a 3 piece case system as shown in the video. The inner shell is 2 hard shell plastic pieces that snap together with ease, taking this case apart the first couple times may be a challenge. The hard shell is then wrapped with a very high quality rubbery outer cover.
I don’t think the Defender is a case for everyone as it does affect docking use and other slight minimal annouances. All in all this is a great case set at a accurate price point. So if you have a rugid tough lifestyle and need a case to stand up to it, you might want to consider the defender by otter box.
