You know you have a winner in your hand when your teenage daughter claims it for her own. What did she borrow from dear old mom? My daughter snatched the Otterbox iPhone Defender Case before I had opened the package.
However, I wasn’t going to part with my iPhone case. The good folks at Otterbox shipped us the iPhone 3G/3GS Commuter TL Case for review.
City Slicker or Stylish Traveler
The Otterbox iPhone Commuter TL Case is not as bulky as my iPhone Defender Case. In fact, it was designed to slide easily out of your purse, pocket or laptop bag. Forget the sleek design, the Commuter TL Case provides three slender, yet sturdy layers of protection. It comes in vibrant colors and offers more “style” according to my fashion conscious daughter. She selected the iPhone Commuter TL case in green.
Three Layers of Protection
The first layer is a self-adhering film that will protect your precious iPhone touch screen from dings and scratches. The second layer, designed to dissipate shock away from your iPhone, is a textured silicone skin. The final layer is a plastic shell that fits snuggly over the silicone, offering yet another layer of protection for the back of the iPhone.
How much does all this protection cost? The Otterbox iPhone Commuter TL Case is priced at $29.95. Keep in mind that the case does not provide water protection. While our experiences may vary from yours, I’m happy to report that my teenage daughter’s iPhone keeps chugging along after more than one drop to the ground.
