Otterbox is a privately owned accessory maker that has a focus on rugged, durable, drop-resistant cases. Otter Products LLC, the parent company, owns both Otterbox and Lifeproof, two of the most well known case brands for those who value protection on their smartphone or tablet.
The company was founded in 1991 by Curt Richardson, when he made a completely water resistant box box in his garage, and in 2001 it began producing its first iPod cases. Since then, the company has expanded its product line to include a variety of cases for various Android phones and tablets, including most recently for phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 and others.
Otterbox has a number of different product lines, each offering a different level of protection. As for the product lines, Otterbox offers a Symmetry series, which is a single piece that slips over the back of the phone, bringing great protection in the smallest form. Next up is the Commuter case, which has a two piece design. This case has a rubber inside layer that goes over the phone, and then a hard plastic outside that clips over it. Finally, the Defender series offers the most protection, with a plastic housing that clips on the phone with a built-in screen protector and a rubber shell that goes on over that.
For select phones, the company also offers a Resurgence series, which features a battery, as well as a Reflex series, Armor series, Prefix series and Drybox series.In addition to the variety of cases, Otterbox is also offering screen protection with a glass screen protector as well as a regular screen protector that can even offer a privacy coating.
