Way back in the year 2012 I was introduced to the joy of OtterBox. While I was chatting with a salesman at the local Verizon Wireless store he told me a story of a rancher who had come in recently with a crushed phone, replacing said phone and adding in an OtterBox case to protect it. The phone and case were stepped on by the rancher’s horse and the phone survived without a scratch. My instant thought was that if a big ol’ horse hoof can’t hurt the phone in that case, I sure couldn’t do any more damage. I was sold!
