Otterbox Cases

Defender Series for iPhone 4

Otterbox is best known as a maker of shock- and waterproof cases for a variety of electronic equipment. With the arrival of new fly fishing and outdoors apps almost every week, we thought anglers should be aware of their new offerings for 2010-2011.  We’ve been taking the Defender Series for the iPhone 4 on all of our stream trips lately, and while not waterproof, it does provide highly durable protection for all parts of the phone, in a case that allows shooting stills and video and accessing other  iPhone features.  For extra security, we stick it inside a clear Waterproof Otterbox Case.

Defender Series® for iPhone 4

This super-rugged protective case guards against bumps, shocks, dust and dirt. The case envelops the phone in a polycarbonate shell made of hi-impact, shatter-resistant material. Built into the shell is a clear Multi-Touch display screen cover as well as a clear cover for the Apple logo cutout on the backside. The coating on the outside of the touch screen membrane resists finger prints. Finally, a silicone skin wraps around and locks into the shell resulting in a unified, nearly indestructible solution. The case includes a belt holster that doubles as a stand, and accepts most third party chargers. $49.95

Commuter Series® for iPhone 4

This case offers three sleek layers of security to complement the iPhone 4’s thin design. First, a self-adhering screen protector keeps the Multi-Touch display screen safe from scratches. Next, a silicone mid-layer absorbs shock, keeping the glass panels safe from bumps and shock. Finally, a polycarbonate shell provides added strength and helps the device slide easily in and out of a pocket or purse. It offers coverage for the iPhone 4 power button, volume rocker and home button, while silicone plugs for the charging port and headphone jack keep out dust and dirt but flip open for easy access. $34.95

Defender Series® for iPad

Designed to accompany on-the-go lifestyles, the Defender Series case for the iPad combines a two-piece polycarbonate shell lined with soft felt, silicone outer skin and a self-adhering screen protector for rugged protection. An additional polycarbonate cover snaps over the face to protect the Multi-Touch display or can function as a built-in stand while browsing the web or watching a video. Silicone grip pads on the bottom of the case prevent the iPad from sliding when sitting on a flat surface. The case also accommodates the optional dock accessory. $89.95

Commuter Series® for iPad

The OtterBox Commuter Series case is another option to keep the iPad pristine. Starting with a self-adhering screen protector, the device is then wrapped in durable silicone and fortified with a one piece custom molded polycarbonate shell that snaps perfectly over the outside. Layers not only safeguard the iPad from unsightly scratches and dings, but also make it easy to slide out of any backpack or briefcase. The case also features snap-off access to the optional iPad dock. $64.95
