“We take testing seriously and ensure every Armor Series case passes a
thorough battery of tests. Since we are launching here in Chicago we
thought it would be fun to put this case to the test with these hockey
legends while further demonstrating its durability,” OtterBox Chief
Operating Officer Pete Lindgren said. “We’re continuing the launch
excitement at the Blackhawks game tonight.”
Series case has been tested to protect handheld technology in a
variety of extreme environments. It has been tested to perform at*:
6.6 ft. underwater for up to 30 minutes**
10 ft. drop
0 entry of any dust or debris
Waterproof, drop proof, dust proof and crush proof, the Armor Series
fuses together four innovative layers to create an unprecedented defense
for the Apple devices.
Metal latches lock the two halves of the case together for a waterproof
seal. The zinc alloy material resists corrosion and provides
long-lasting, simple use. Over-molded bumpers featured on the inside and
outside of the Armor Series case provide drop protection and are made
with advanced materials that resist deterioration from chemicals and
hand oil. A non-permeable membrane and mesh layer over device vents
allow sound to pass but nothing else. Precise openings allow for full
functionality of all features including the camera and flash.
The exterior is made of high-strength reinforced plastic designed for
long-term use and easy cleaning -- the same material used in hammers and
industrial tools. The interior includes soft foam for a cushioned,
custom fit for the device. Exact measurements and tolerances ensure
secure, reliable performance. A built-in screen protector is bonded to
the case with similar adhesive used in the automotive industry to
replace rivets; it guards against scratches to the glass display and
resists smudges and fingerprints.
Port covers open easily for quick access to charging and headphone use
without removing the case and a lanyard is included for convenient
