The Otterbox brand started in 1998 with a goal to provide protective solutions to handheld devices. The name 'otter' is from the semiaquatic mammals that are very active and curious. They love to play a lot and explore the things around them.
The Otterbox Company compared their line of products to the otter's fur which is waterproof, and offers great protection even in compromising situations. Recently, these cell phone accessories gained popularity because of their reputation to provide unparalleled protection to handheld devices.
The Otterbox offers five series of phone cases which were specifically made for your unique lifestyle. Let us take a look at the hottest and talked about cases the Otterbox brand has to offer.
