Elemental Protection: OtterBox Announces Armor Series with Realtree Camo

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the field and on the street, handheld technology takes a beating from the elements. To safeguard the Apple® iPhone® 4/4S and iPhone 5 from any hazard, OtterBox® pairs the most versatile camouflage with the most versatile protection for a truly unique waterproof iPhone camo case. Introducing the OtterBox Armor Series® with Realtree® camouflage.

The Armor Series holster, which fits both iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 Armor Series cases, will also be available soon.

“Technology goes everywhere with us today, whether it’s on a hunt or on the morning commute,” OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas said. “By combining the Armor Series with Realtree camo, OtterBox allows everyone to get the most out of their iPhone anytime, anywhere, on any adventure.”

The Armor Series fuses four layers of premium protection to defend against water, drops, dust and crush. Corrosion-resistant metal latches, o-ring technology and secure port covers keep water out and allow the Armor Series to undergo submersions for 30 minutes in up to 6.6 feet of water.* Vents and port covers are made of a non-permeable membrane and a protective mesh layer allows sound to pass through, while keeping harmful elements out. Advanced materials protect the device from 10-foot drops while bumpers in each corner absorb shock. High-strength reinforced plastic allows the Armor Series to withstand two tons of force and a built-in screen protector guards against scratches. A lanyard is included for hands-free carrying.**

The Armor Series is now available in Realtree camouflage patterns including Xtra® for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 and Max-4® HD for iPhone 5. The case is available at otterbox.com for $109.95, while the holster will be available for $29.95. For more information visit www.otterbox.com.
