Otterbox Armor Series: Built like a Tough and Waterproof Tank!

Otterbox has built a world-famous brand that’s all about protection for people’s gadgets. That’s why we’ve been wondering why they haven’t released a waterproof case yet and several other brands beat them to it. However they finally have an offering and this one will not only keep your iPhone safe from water, dust, and shock but it will also make it look good! The Otterbox Armor Series for the iPhone 5 is considered to be the toughest case for the iPhone 5. It offers remarkable protection against drops, dust, water, and almost about everything else making it one of the best cases you can use for outdoor use.

Believe the hype: it can protect your iPhone 5

We featured the Otterbox Armor series during episode 17 of the Unbox video podcast. We’ve embedded the video below for your viewing so you can see proof on how it keeps your iPhone 5 safe. In the episode below we dunked it into water, threw it around the room, and even jumped on it. The Otterbox Armor series starts at 16:28 so just skip to that part if you want to see just that.

In short, the Otterbox Armor series delivers on the promise of insane protection for your iPhone. It surpasses the waterproof brands because it adds to that by making sure that it can withstand 10 ft. falls and even crushing force.

Build: Transforms your iPhone 5 into a Tank

However the case does have one drawback — it’s crazy bulky and hefty. Check out some of the photos we took below.

Verdict: Not an everyday case but great for the outdoors

We don’t see ourselves using the Otterbox Armor series on a daily basis. It’s just too bulky and hefty for regular use. However it is absolutely PERFECT for outdoors. It’s the case you want and need when you’re going to hit the beach or you’re going hiking. If you’re the type of person that goes on those kinds of trips regularly then the Otterbox Armor series is a seriously good and practical investment.

The Otterbox Armor series is already available in stores and it comes in different color schemes. SRP is Php4,900.
