After using the Otterbox Defender a few months, I felt the need for a waterproof option, as I work around many liquids daily. I therefore moved to the Otterbox Armor. After using this case, I missed the slimmer size of the Defender compared to the brick like appearance of the Armor, though I did enjoy the waterproof capability. When the Preserver came out, I realized that this was the absolute best option, as it is the same size as the Defender, yet has the capabilities of the Armor.
I will say that it does have its flaws, however the Pros definitely outweigh the cons by a long shot. I have already convinced my coworkers to invest in the engineering masterpiece and they too have been very pleased. This is definitely the next "big idea" from Otterbox!
Pros: High quality, Durable, waterproof, slim, attractive, protective, non-obstructive
Cons: mute switch difficult to move, port covers difficult to remove

Is it snow proof?

I want to find the best waterproof case around
Yes. Just be sure to monitor temperature of the phone as internals can "freeze."

How is the sound quality of this case

I have a Incipio Atlas and the sound quality is horrible. Just wondering if yours is any better? I get echo on speaker phone which makes it usable and very muffled sound when listening to music.
It is slightly muffled, however I have noticed no major differences between this case and using the phone without one.

I have an iPhone 5s but do not use the fingerprint sensor. Will this case fit the 5s?

There is a separate version specified for the 5s, however if you do not care to use the fingerprint reader, this case will work for the 5s as well.

Why aren't the preserver cases available anywhere else?

I've literally checked everywhere, and otterbox.com is the only site/store to carry them.
Walmart and Walmart.com both carry the preserver. eBay also has them, however beware of counterfeits.
