  • Protective
  • Looks good
  • Easy access to all buttons and ports

Key Specifications

  • Protective
  • Attractive
  • Three layers of protection

Striking the perfect balance between style and safety, this is the “light” version of the Otterbox Defender range. It is still incredibly protective, with three layers to safeguard your phone against bumps and knocks, but is far slimmer and much more attractive.

The inner layer is silicone, cushioning around the iPhone. The outer layer, made from polycarbonate, has the dual purpose of absorbing impact from any knocks and making the device easy to slide in and out of a pocket or a bag.

The Commuter case allows easy access to all buttons and controls on the exterior of the case and has a flap to stop dirt getting into the charging port.

There’s very little bad to say about this case – it’s truly excellent. Also, this special Strength edition of the Commuter range is raising money for the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade; 10% of every sale raising money to help find a cure for breast cancer.
