OtterBox customized Defender Series cases

Phew, today is an accessories day. Logitech owned the morning with its iPad mini Bluetooth keyboard, then Cody blogged about Mophie’s 1500mAh Juice Pack Helium for the iPhone 5.

Shortly after came word of Griffin’s artsy Designer Series cases which add a little bit of flair and wit to your iPhone 5.

Not to be outdone by its rivals, OtterBox has launched a case customization program for owners of the iPhone 4/4S/5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S III. What’s this for, you ask. How about 35 different combinations of polycarbonate and silicone cases for your iPhone 4 or 4S and a remarkable 72 combinations of different designs for the iPhone 5?

All you’re required to do is choose from a bunch of color combinations at the OtterBox web site.

The company wrote in a media release that each case has a built-in screen protector and a holster style-belt clip. The shell is a two-piece polycarbonate part while the outer slipcover is made from silicone.

Three layers of defense include a plastic shell that cushions the iPhone 5 while a built-in screen protector prevents scratches and smudges.

The rubber outer slipcover wraps around the inner shell, creating a practically indestructible iPhone 5 case. A holster is included and doubles as a viewing stand.

Here’s an example case I customized.

OtterBox Defender Series (customizable, iPhone 5)
Yes, red is my favorite color.

The OtterBox Defender Series Build Your Own program is available, for a limited time.

Last but not the least: if you own a Samsung Galaxy S III, OtterBox will treat you to 42 different designs for your handset.

And just like that, all of a sudden life gets a little more exciting.

  • Wow. Right after i purchased an otterbox. :/

      Damn them! The same with me!

      • Lol its cheaper to get 2 cases from amazon for $45 and mix them up then 1 from them directly for 60. Smh

  • I don’t like otter otterboxes. They are great for “defending” your phone, but I bought my iPhone for its beautifully rendered appearance and like to show it off

      Yeah, but my wife is a clutz. She drops her phone constantly. So much that we are on her 2nd otter box defender because the rubber was so scuffed up. I actually have to buy the case before I buy her phone. I do that so I can open the box (the phone came in), put the phone in the case and then let her turn it on and set her settings…Sad but true.

      • ☺ I used to be the same way. My otterbox saved my 4s numerous times, they are great cases and probably the only “bulky” case i would invest money into. With my iPhone 5 though… I treat it like a piece of gold

    • JamesR624

      Wow. I was under the impression that you bought it to be a portable cell phone, not just be a fashion statement. If you’re buying phones just for that, you shouldn’t be buying cell phones.

      • I didn’t say I wore it around my neck or wrist u idiot, I’m saying apple products are known for their design, why would u hide that with a bunch of rubber and plastic? Maybe an android phone would be better for u, that way there is nothing special to be seen.

  • djmobil2

    Will they take my almost new otter box in trade in for a new colored one? That’s the question!

    • Kaptivator

      The worst that they can say is No! Call em up!

I recently bought otterbox defender but after 1.5 month of normal used the rubber just broken. since it was still under their warranty so i send claim + photo of the damage rubber, they reply that they will replace that with a new one however after several month (5month) no progress and so far in vain……SUCKS!!!!!!
