Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Product This product is good. The only issue is the rubber part of the case lost elasticity August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't live without it! I love my Otterbox and couldn't live without it. I am so hard on my phone and the Otterbox keeps it safe and functioning. It's durable and I love the built in screen protector! August 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wounded Warrior S3 case I recently purchased a Defender with the Wounded Warrior Project logo on the back. I love the Defender series case this is my second on. The only thing I dont like about this one is the back where the Wounded Warrior Project label is it has shown the white base coat extremely fast around the edges and a couple of light scratches have shown the white base coat as well. All in all it is still a wonderful product. I just wish they would've made the black over the white a little more resilient. Especially considering its the side that faces out in the holster anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by They changed it for the better This case seemed to have gotten an upgrade. The outter rubber is firmer. The hole for the aux jack accommodates varying size cords. Thanks for the quality. Keep it going strong Outter Box. July 19, 2014

A: 
I work construction and I use mine on my REALLY wide tool belt suspenders. My suspenders are nearly 2 inches wide and it BARELY doesnt fit them. Luckily I am able to bunch the suspenders up slightly to fit the clip.

A: 
I wear a 2" double thick belt that is often used by police officers as an under belt. I have to place the clip on while putting my belt on, but believe that you could fit a 1.5" belt easily.

A: 
Do not purchase a Otterbox for your because the rubber around the hard shell does not last more then three months tops. I owned the Samsung Galaxy S3 two of them been damage using there case. I have never had this problem with this product. I also own two Galaxy Note 2 haven't any issues with the Otterbox case just the defender case for the S3.

Q: 
the Tech Specs indicate the following dimensions:

Dimensions: 5.88 in x 3.47 in x 1.41 in / 148.84 mm x 88.14 mm x 35.81 mm

But 1.41 in HAS TO be with the holster. What about just the case?

The phone case snaps in and out of the holster. I see no way to detach the ratcheting clip from the holster, if that's the question.

A: 
Sure, you can take the phone out of the case and slip it into the holster. But it won't stay in place on its own, given that the phone is much smaller than the case and the case is what holds it in place in the holster. Maybe if you duct tape it a bit...

A: 
I think you're asking if the bulky rotating clip can be removed from the hard shell holster so that the shell can be used as a protective faceplate. If that's your question, the answer is no*.

*Actually, mine BROKE off when I dropped it, so can be REMOVED easily enough. But it does not detach and then reattach.

The belt clip/holster unit is detachable from the base unit, which is the 'case' that encapsulates the phone.

A: 
The phone is not sealed into the case. It's not water or dust proof.

The back of the case has recesses with cut-outs for the camera, LED and speaker. The front of the phone is covered by a built-in screen protector, however, it has cutouts for the camera, sensors, speaker and home key, just like a regular film screen protector.

A: 
It doesn't have a cover directly over it, but it has the case all around it that gives it a quarter of an inch of walling around the lens. It makes for a very small opening for something to actually hit the lens. You really don't have to worry about the lens at all. I have had mine for 6 months and the lens hasn't been touched by anything.

The rear camera lense IS covered, but front camera is totally exposed.
This product is not marketed as waterproof or dustproof -- take a look at the Armor series (though I haven't tried those).
Defender Series for S3 is a DUST MAGNET.

I am wanting to know if this case has a bar to feed a wrist or neck strap attachment onto it. I'd like the extra security when I am taking a picture or just holding my phone in general.

A: 
It does not have that, but it is tough, so unless you are dropping it where you would lose it permanently (i.e. a waterfall, a gorge, a canyon, a river, etc) then you really don't have to worry about it being damaged by a drop. Heck I have accidentally thrown mine on a hard surface (don't ask) and the phone still looks like it is in mint condition.
