I am beyond rough on phones...I think I have been through a minimum or five in the last four years...mostly due to destruction by user or by user's children.  After my last regular phone spent the night in a glass of Coke...and since most of my friends were annoyed because I had to go home to check email which being in as many car pools as I am in ...constant parent contact is important...I had to advance to the iPhone...which made me nervous due to my awful track record with phones. 

I bought mine off a major store site so it was a bit less expensive than purchasing on the otterbox site.  I have the black with the pink plastic insert.  And yes...despite the severe vigilance I have over the iPhone, it has been dropped...and thanks to the defender it has bounced. 

This is a two piece system...hard shell inside...rubber exterior layer.   Well thought out so your phone won't pop out like the soley rubber protectors.  My kids can't remove. 

There is sticky air bubble effect and I think the sensitivity of the phone is a tad compromised on the edges but a super tiny price to pay.  I am always looking for a better mouse trap but there is no reason to look anywhere beyond the Defender for your iPhone...

And the rubber will grip your hair...be careful... :-)

I wish I would not have purchased this case for my 3GS. The soft rubber material on the outside make in pretty much impossible to put into your pocket or take out of your pocket. The only good thing that outside material does is protect and provide cushion when I drop my phone. I had my phone in my back pocket by some miracle and I fell on it and it shattered my screen! I do not think I am overweight I am 115 lbs so I'm disappointed that the screen was shattered and not protected by OtterBox. It also seemed that my phone overheated a lot while it was in the case. It was helpful in protecting from little drops but as soon as a big accident happened, the case was no longer reliable.

I spent days researching cases to protect my phone and this is the best available. I like the way it looks, and the way I carry it. If you want protection, you get this case.
