Samsung Galaxy S3 Defender Series Build Your Own Case

Enjoy 25% Off Samsung Galaxy S3 Cases

OtterBox.com is the only place you can go to build a custom Defender Series Galaxy S3 case. The Defender Series offers 3 layers of protection so you don’t have to fear the inevitable oopsie or accident. The two piece polycarbonate inner layer snaps together around the device to form a secure foundation. The inner layer includes a built-in screen protector that prevents scratches while memory foam pads cradle the device to provide added shock absorption. The outer layer is made up of rugged silicone that wraps around the inner layer to absorb impact. The Defender Series Galaxy S3 case comes with a ratcheting belt holster that can also double as a viewing stand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great case just one flaw First bought the case with my phone. Then the silicon started to stretch away from the phone. And the plug for the power jack broke off and other areas started to tear with in the warranty. Otter box replaced the case for me which was great. But the something is happening to the second one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by so so I received this as a gift. It is big and bulky. The outer layer is pulling away at the bottom from trying to pull it out of my pocket when it can't be in my purse. April 4, 2014

The belt clip is ABSOLUTELY available. If you don't want a clip, go with the armor series.

In order to order this case the build your own it comes with the clip. Obviously the clip is out of stock. If you don't use the clip put it away or sell it to some one that have the same case and may need a spare clip.
