OtterBox Case Review and Giveaway

OtterBox Case for iPhone, iPad or iPod


If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and kids, you really need to get an OtterBox. Heck, even if you don't have kids, you need one of these cases. True, I have never stood on my phone, like my child regularly does to the iPad mini, but I have put it thru the wringer. I've dropped it out of the car (and of course it tumbled right under to the farthest possible point so that I had to get down on my hands and knees in a grocery store parking lot to retrieve it!), dropped it into various crafts we were working on and slimed it up while taking pictures of recipe/meal prep. I once even dropped it in my oatmeal and still don't know how that happened.
My oldest son was given an iPod Touch 3rd gen that already had an Otterbox on it. He played with it for well over a year with zero issues. Mind you, he was 2 and 3 years old at the time, so he was less than gentle. He then inherited his Daddy's iPod Touch 4th gen. We went with a less expensive case and thought they were all created equal. This case was about half the price as the Otterbox but within days the screen was damaged. Needless to say, we got him an Otterbox and we haven't even thought about trying another case since.

We have so loved their products, that we have one for each of our five iDevices (no, I don't think that is an Apple approved word, but I am tired of typing them all out).

I'm not joking when I say my boys are rough our their iDevice. My toddler actually THROWS my mini. He is in that stage. Of course, I am trying to correct this habit, thankfully our devices are protected in the meantime.

Anyway, when my husband recently purchased an iPhone5, we naturally wanted an Otterbox. We got the Defender Series. We were able to customize the color and it comes with a holster clip.




Product Description  
  • – Rugged multi-layered case withstands drops, bumps and shocks
  • – Built-in screen protector prevents scratches
  • – Silicone port covers keep out dust and debris
  • – Belt clip holster/ kickstand included
  • – Also available in Realtree camo
You choose the inside and outside colors. As you can see, it comes in a few pieces, including a screen protector and snaps together fairly easy. It is durable without being too bulky. Our only suggestion for improvement, would be to thin out the front profile so that with the iOS7, you can pull up the menu from the bottom more easily. Otherwise we love, love, love our Otterbox cases.

  19. Honestly I like everything about otter box. My husband bought me one for Xmas for my iPad and I love it. Love how it has a built in screen protector, love that the charging port and speakers, efc are accessible while in the otter box, love how it protects my iPad when I drop it, love how the cover snaps easily on the back while using it or can be used as a stand.... I love everything about it, honestly my favorite thing being that it's protected my iPad when I have dropped it, even when dropped on concrete....versus my step daughters iPhone which she has broken six times in five months because she does not and will not use a case, even though she has a great one.....I would love to have a case for my iPhone or my husbands iPad..... Thanks for the Chance to win!

  68. Looks Nice.. Beautiful colors. But m not sure on how durable this case might be. Just got an iPhone 7 Case from Zizo Wireless for my daughter. She is very careless with her stuffs! These strong and firm cases protect the phone from breaking caused by dropping it accidentally.
