Buying a new iPhone and putting it inside the Otter Defender is a little bit like getting an expensive pedicure, and then wearing heavy steel-toed work boots to protect your new pedicure. Yes, I am confident that this case will provide serious protection when I drop my phone, but I just wish it was not so clunky and heavy. However, it seems to be a high-quality product. It claims to offer "Rugged Protection," and I think that is true. The real reason I bought this was because I wanted an iPhone case with a belt clip, and the Otter Defender is one of the few cases that offers that. It seems that 90% of the iPhone cases are intended to just be carried inside one's pockets. Oh yes, you may have difficulty figuring out how to put your iPhone inside this case. It is not very intuitive. So I went onto YouTube and found a helpful video that explained the process.
