OtterBox Defender Series for the Tour

Posted on 03. Oct, 2009 by in BlackBerry

otter-logoI have had the Defender Case for my tour for about two months now, and I am extremely impressed! I’m trying to decide just how to express my thoughts on this case. I could tell you how well it’s designed, compared to the older cases this one is a huge improvement. The way that it flows with the lines of the tour is beautiful. Compared to the same case for my curve this one is a huge improvement. The case fits well in your hand and does not detract at all from the look of the Tour. It comes with a holster, so connivence is not an issue, its a little bit hard to put in your pocket, but I prefer a holster anyway. I really should tell you how durable it is, and the protection it offers because really, that’s the reason you will buy one anyway, right? Keep reading for more and a video after the jump.

Well, The Defender case for  BlackBerry® Tour™ 9600 Series has three layers of protection.

  • Layer 1: Thermal formed protective clear membrane. Protects keypad against scratching, as well as dust intrusion (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)
  • Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell for an added guard against drops and shocks
  • Layer 3: High quality silicone skin to absorb bump and shock
  • Full access to all keys, ports and functions

Believe me, this thing is stout! I work for an engineering firm, and believe me I put it through it’s paces. I do a lot of field work in refineries, and paper mills, and other industrial areas. I expose my BlackBerry to extreme temperatures, and humidity levels and impacts daily. I can tell you all of this, but the name OtterBox comes with a preceded reputation of protection for all types of electronics. I can tell you that my Tour got tossed down a flight of stairs by a co-worker, that told me I wasn’t testing it while on my belt. I could also tell you that I use it while sailing, and if you sail you know how much a boat can list, and that unsecured items can fly around the cabin. I don’t usually secure my BlackBerry as I like to have it with in reach, and it has gone flying across the cabin, numerous times. Still, I could be just saying all that and who knows if I am telling the truth. So you see my predicament, how can I prove to you that this thing has gained my trust? I think I may have figured it out. While I trust this thing totally, before doing something like this..there is always a small amount of doubt. Bottom line, if you have any type of job that you could damage your BlackBerry, you have to have this case. It’s not an option, be construction, law enforcement, emergency services, military or just outdoor work, you need this case. That being said, take a look at the video below. Then go and get your OtterBox for BlackBerry Case.
