Who Says Otters Don't Like Snow? OtterBox Prepares Your Tech for the Slopes

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Can't wait for your first trip down the mountain this season? Bring along your new iPhone™ with a custom case from OtterBox and you can enjoy your favorite snow activities, knowing your device is protected.

Available for the 1st generation, 3G and 3GS, the OtterBox Defender™ Series for iPhone is the perfect sidekick for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. Whether you're accessing digital maps and weather conditions from the latest iPhone app, hopping off the ski lift or trying new tricks on the half-pipe, your iPhone remains safe and protected.

Snowboard instructor Nicholas Nolan is constantly on the slopes so when he needed to find protection for his iPhone he looked no further than OtterBox. "I wanted a case that would protect my phone from the different elements that I experience," said Nolan, who uses the OtterBox Defender Series. "There is no other case like the OtterBox."

Nolan can now teach others to snowboard at the Breckenridge Ski Resort in Breckenridge, Colo. without worrying about the safety of his phone. "The OtterBox is a smart investment for anyone who works in and enjoys the outdoors," he said.

The OtterBox Defender Series for iPhone offers three layers of protection.* The first layer protects the screen to prevent scratches, the second is composed of a durable polycarbonate shell to safeguard against accidental drops and lastly a silicone layer absorbs shock. OtterBox also offers two custom color options for the Defender Series case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS available exclusively at AT&T stores. Make a stylish statement on the slopes with black silicone on a pink polycarbonate shell or white silicone on a black polycarbonate shell.

The Defender Series isn't the only form of protection that OtterBox offers for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. The Impact™ Series protects against bumps and shocks in one slim silicone layer, plus it comes with a self-adhering screen shield to prevent scratching.**

The Commuter™ and Commuter™ TL Series are the newest additions to OtterBox's line of iPhone protection. These hybrid lines protect your iPhone with a silicone layer and polycarbonate shell, making it easier to slide in and out of your winter coat while on the slopes. The Commuter is available in all black and offers three optional bundle kits with a black silicone and three colored polycarbonate shells in each. The Commuter TL comes in seven vibrant colors so you can match your case to all your ski gear this season. To compare the Commuter and Commuter TL cases, visit***
