case ever built last week during the Consumer Electronics Show in

The Armor Series is a reinvention of an OtterBox classic that brings
protection against water, drops, dust and crushing force. Four layers
are fused to create the toughest case ever built.
Innovative and intentional design elements work together in making the OtterBox
Armor Series best in class when it comes to protection. Watertight
latches, patented o-ring technology, port covers and mesh coverings keep
water out and allow the Armor Series to tolerate submersions for 30
minutes in up to 6.6 ft. of ater. Vents and port covers are made of a
non-permeable membrane and protective mesh layer that allows sound to
move through while keeping harmful elements out.
The interior and exterior of the case features advanced materials that
protect the device from 10 ft. drops. Over-molded bumpers in each corner
of the case absorb shock and the high-strength reinforced plastic of the
Armor Series can withstand up to two tons of force. Soft interior foam
provides a cushioned, custom fit for the device, while the built-in
screen protector prevents scratches and damage to the glass display.
Corrosion-resistant metal latches lock the two halves of the case
together, providing simple, secure assembly. Port covers open easily for
quick access to charging and headphone use without removing the case and
a lanyard is included for convenient hands-free carrying.
The OtterBox Armor Series provides absolute protection while maintaining
full-device functionality. For more information visit www.otterbox.com/armor-series.
