Otterbox Defender Realtree Camo iPhone 5 Case review

I have been using Otterbox products on my Apple devices for about four years now, and the Otterbox Defender Realtree Camo iPhone 5 case that I had the opportunity to review recently is yet another amazing product from Otterbox.

In case you haven’t seen the Otterbox Defender Realtree Camo design from the popular Otterbox Defender Series of cell phone cases, below is an image. Isn’t it cute? I mean, you don’t even have to be a country girl like me to appreciate this adorable pink phone case!

Otterbox Defender Realtree Camo iPhone 5 Case

The Defender Series Realtree Camo iPhone 5 case offers great protection from the elements, and from accidents. This Defender Series iPhone 5 case features the Otterbox multi-layered design, and offers the toughest defense for your phone.

The Otterbox.two-piece plastic inner-shell snaps together to cushion and shield your iPhone. A screen protector is built in to the inner-shell to help prevent scratching and smudging.

Finally, the rubbery outer layer will wrap around your Otterbox to give it that final bit of protection.

What I love most about this case

As I said, I am not new to Otterbox products. I own the “Blush” version of this case for my iPhone 5, and have used it on my phone since day one.

I love how well Otterbox Defender Series iPhone cases preserve my phone. When I took the case off my previous iphone after three years of use, the phone looked BRAND NEW. Minus just a bit of debris that had managed to sneak in around the edges after years of use (minimal), the phone was in pristine condition.

I love how the rubber layer on the Otterbox protects against bumps, and I just generally adore how my phone feels in my hand in the Otterbox.

Otterbox Defender Series iPhone Case

The touch screen is still highly sensitive even with the protective cover, and I really wouldn’t risk putting my iPhone 5 in any other type of case — especially with a 1-year-old and 3-year-old in the house — because ANYTHING can happen!

Have you ever tried an Otterbox? What do you love most about these great cases?

    I also have used Otterbox cases for our iphones and our iPad. I have tried other cases from companies that claim their cases are tough, but I wouldn’t trade my otterbox for them! They are the best.

    That design is so cute! I have the purple defender series and had this one come out when I bought my Otterbox, I would have chosen this design too. I wish they had this on display when I bought mine.

    My MIL has the exact same phone case. I should have had an otterbox on my blog. Now I have a cracked screen on my iPhone.

    My daughter had an Otterbox, but it started to tear at the edge, but she is rough with her phone especially at college. From what I have heard, they are great.

    How do you get one? Are they giving these away by drawing or free?

    Preaching to the choir, here, Crissy! I had my Otterbox cases before we even got our iPhones here (one for me and one for my daughter). She is 16 and wants to “accessorize” with all different cases but I’m pretty obsessive about keeping the Otterbox on the iPhone. I told she can do whatever she wants. But if her phone breaks, she’s out of a phone. So, in my opinion, it’s Otterbox or nothing. LOL.
