This solid and lightweight iPhone case is the perfect balance between protection and style. Most trendsetters today have the newer iPhone 4 model, but I have stuck by my reliable iPhone 3 because of the affordable price if I lose it and have had a hard time seeking out sleek, durable cases that are still available with regularity.
This slender model keeps my iPhone protected from all sides. We are talking back, front, side, corner, and even the inevitable face-plant. I have seen dozens of iPhone cases that offer protection from every conceivable angle with the exception of that perfect, flat-on-the-face slam that you know your iPhone will have at some point in time.
Otterbox comprises three slender, yet sturdy layers offer tough protection in a sleek package of varying colors (choose between midnight blue, otter yellow, light green, or many others). For those who travel internationally with regularity, you know that weight is also an unfortunate consideration for those with carry-on bags these days. This case is lightweight and not bulky when in your bag or pocket. While I always make an effort to remove heavy items like cameras, cell phones, magazines and laptops, it is hard to prevent the weight of chargers and other items in your bag from stopping nosy gate or check-in agents.
These iPhone cases are thoroughly protective. Admittedly, it is quite difficult to wrap it around your phone the first time you use it. So hard that Otterbox provides its own device to wrap it successfully around your phone. However, once securely on the iPhone, it allows for easy, responsive touches on all buttons and stays in place securely.
Otterbox even includes a silicone plug and self-adhering protective film for added protection. The overall silicone skin and outer shell is perfect for protecting an iPhone from bump and shock.
