Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 305 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Way better than the armor I took my phone out of an armor series case to try this one, I really liked the armor, but I think I like this more?! This is definitely a slimmer case, but feels good in the hand. It keeps dust out excellently. Never tried the waterproofing feature, I simply don't trust it. As I said,it is a slimmer case, so In my opinion it feels more vulnerable, that probly stems from me having had armor, aka: "The Tank" on my phone previously. I would recommend this case, it's a good case. Its tough enough for an 18 year old Landscaper/Autobody mechanic/Construction worker/ farmer, if one of my many hats can't ruin this case, it's unlikely one of yours will. Did I forget soldier? (Army 12N) But truthfully, who cares if you break it.. Warranty is second to none on these things. Worth the money. I'm sorry my review rambles. Deal with it. August 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Otter box Preserver for iPhone 5s Good case, has some sound issues, needs a belt holster though. August 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by My Preserver Otter Box It is working nice. I have not tested it in any water yet and don't plan too. I bought it to prevent accidental water contact, hopefully. I'm an avid boater and fisherman and thought this would be a good investment to protect my new Iphone 5S. I didn't learn till after I purchased it that you have to unsnap the cover and remove the phone every time to charge the phone because all the ports on the phone are sealed off by the case. I thought it would have a removal seal to plug the power charger into like the other water proof case. I'm concerned about how long the case will keep its tight seal when I'm opening it everyday, once or twice. The other con I learned the first day with this case is that you have to pay attention how you place the phone into the first part of the case and not accidently slide the "ringer" button off. The 1st day, I missed about 4 calls before I realize the side switch got moved when I put the phone into the case. And even though there is a side slide tab outside on the caseto turn that ringer forward or back, it doesn't move well. So now I'm attentive to be sure that ringer switch isn't moved. August 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by When it's risky! You may not know it - but we're all going to drop the precious devices we store our lives on & what luck or should I say, "proper purchase" that this case will save the day. "It's in the pool", he says. I'll go ahead & finish my lunch and investigate after desert! The phone inside the case is so dainty - yet the case makes it so apparent. Good to go kayaking now!

Q: 
It says up to 30 minutes up to 6 ft. underwater. I presume this has to do with the water pressure on the seal, etc...

But how long can it stay waterproof if it is not underwater, but merely getting wet, say: getting rained on, or simply sitting around wet without being dried off?

Q: 
I have an iPhone 5 and I'm really interested in the waterproof preserver series. I would like to know if the 5s case would fit the 5 and still be waterproof? I looked for just a regular 5 case but it always brings me back to the 5S product.

Answers

A: 
It will be waterproof, there is nothing differentiating the 5 from the 5s cases besides some of them have accommodations for the fingerprint scanners(thin membrane of flexible plastic material allows phone to read thumbprint while maintaining waterproof capability.). To answer your question directly, yes the phone will be protected from water. Always water test the case first.

I know a browning buckmark sticker fits on the back rather well. Wounded warriors ought to fit as well.
