Black Purple & Green Frë waterproof case | OtterBox

The OG

The original, Frē Series waterproof phone case engineered by LifeProof, has been saving people from soaked circuits since iPhone 4. It was conceived as an omni-protective phone garment, blocking water, snow, dirt and drops—all in a tough but sleek design that lets iPhone’s aesthetics shine.

Standing the test of time, Frē Series, whether past, present or future, is all about delivering a fully balanced case: appealing to the eye, nimble in the hand and ready for adventure. LifeProof joined the Otter Products family of brands in 2013. Given the continued maturation of the mobile technology industry, we decided that now is the right time to market our most popular LifeProof product under the expansive reach of the OtterBox brand.

Elemental protection

Frē Series is waterproof (IP68) and fully sealed from the elements yet stays impressively thin. Some of its distinguishing features are the contrasting seam stripe, spin style mute dial and the smart port plug. Frē Series delivers a proven waterproof design that goes from the daily grind to adventurous pursuits.

Seeking sustainability

When LifeProof decided to reduce its environmental impact, we had someone on the team ready to push us down the path of sustainability. We call him David Nebel.

“We were given the green light to investigate new materials and reimagine our product lines,” David Nebel said. “Our ocean has a vast problem of plastic pollution, and heave-hoed fishing gear is a large contributor. The team tracked down a supplier who intercepts old nets and ropes then turns them into raw materials.”

Family dynamics

Now a part of the OtterBox lineup, Frē Series is still invested in waterproof protection that looks sharp and functions great—that includes using a high percentage of ocean-based recycled plastic. Frē Series waterproof phone case broke new ground by bringing all-encompassing protection into the fold. And broke it again by using ocean-based recycled plastic. LifeProof brand fans now benefit from the expanded OtterBox product ecosystem, including an extensive offering of screen protection and power products.
