My Otter box made it through everything. From me dropping my phone into my cereal to it riding atop my jeep. The otter box is easy to use, except when trying to remove it. The removal process is pretty difficult without a very unique tool. A butter knife will suffice if you can't find the real tool. The only other disadvantage is its bulk. As technology has progressed phones are getting sleeker. The otter box sets that feature back ten years.
