Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome! I have been waiting forever for this case to be released. I finally have one and I love it. Otter box has designed another durable case! If your looking for something not to make your phone too bulky this definitely isn't the case for you. The case is just a little bit bigger than the defender which has been on my phone every since I have purchased my iPhone 5. The phone seems as if it could withstand anything that might happen to the phone. I have tried a life proof box for my device which was awful! I am a firefighter/EMT and needed something to protect me from all the weather elements, and I'm glad to say I have found it! The phone fits nicely into the case and has a snug fit. With the life proof box I had a awful Mirror image of a pesky air bubble on my phone. You defiantly don't have that with this case. I was amazingly surprised with the sound quality of the armor series case, sounds just like it did in my defender case! In call volume was my main concern with this case because the life proof was awful with in in call volume. I'm happy to say I can hear just fine and the other party can hear me as we'll without any problems. If I had to pick one thing I don't like about the case it would be it has no belt clip. Just a lanyard you can attach to the case which I don't use. If a belt clip were to come out for this case I'd be a very happy owner!! Thanks again otter box for another great product. Well worth the money. March 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well built product, a lot bigger then the defender series. Can say it is waterproof without the phone in it but dont really want to play with testing with the phone inside the case but Im sure it will keep the phone dry. One thing I do not like is that there is a huge air bubble (or something) preventing the screen protector from touching the screen of the phone. Making it hard to see the screen in outside and making texting hard at points April 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Waterproof Armour I put a papertowel inside and put it in a bowl of water to test that it was waterproof. It floated and the papertowel stayed dry. That's great. The down side is that you sacrifice a lot on the sound and the shatterproof screen makes it difficult for the iPhone to respond to the touchscreen. April 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Touch screen problem. Once the phone was in the case and hooked closed, the touch screen was hard to access. I Had to place a think piece of paper between the phone and the back of case in order to be able to access the touch screen and it still has trouble. Other then that I love the rest of the functions especially the ability to access the phone without unhooking many protective coverings. April 20, 2014

I have put my phone in the snow on on multiple occasions and the case has always kept my phone intact. Usually when I come in from the snowy outdoors I wipe the case down with a dry towel to wipe the water off. I believe this case is snow proof based on my experiences...

Yes it does. While I would NEVER recommend putting your phone in the snow and leaving it there for hours or anything this case IS water resistant to a very good degree and snow as well as rain and other liquid elements will not hurt your phone as long as your case is in good condition and installed correctly! I work with chemicals and this case protect my phone from the liquids on my hands all the time. I have also used my phone in the RAIN and snow with no problems! Again, I do not recommend it, but yes it does!

Yes ! Cleaning my car covered with snow every morning The snow tends to get into my coat pocket, and I mean alot of snow in my pockets where my iphone5 is also in my coat ,however it has the otterboxArmour case on the iphone5 . Anyway , Several times I never new my pockets were full of snow together with my iphone 5 in my coat pockets, Well realizing a good time later I of coarse removed the snow from my coat pocket with my phone being soaking wet as the snow begins to melt . Isimply dry it off wiith any soft cloth or tissue thats handy. When I arrived home several hours later I removed the iphone from the otterbox Armour to check for damage And not a drop of melted snow penetrated the otterbox Armour case, even though it was several hours later, I would of seen some evidence that snow or dirt penetrated the case , but the iphone was as dry as can be! Buy this case , It always stays clean and is the best investment to keep you phone safe,prestine looking.

Nope. Floats like a rock, at least with the phone in the case it did. I did as instructed and water tested the case prior to installing the phone, floated then because of the air inside.
