The Defender Series is the highest level of protection Otterbox offers for the iPhone 5 with its three-layer construction. The layers of polycarbonate, foam and silicone are designed to guard against impact, bumps and dust so the phone won’t get scratched, dented or otherwise ruined. The polycarbonate layer includes a screen protector for full protection. This is also the only series that comes with a holster to easily attach the phone to a belt or bag; the holster doubles as a phone stand. This case won’t interfere with the phone’s features, including the touchscreen, the camera and the speakers.
