I have had my Otter Armor case since I upgraded my phone in the beginning of 2013. Being a mechanic in my civilian job and a Cavalry Scout in the NG I needed a rugged phone case and it did not pay off more until we went to summer camp this last month. Spending a total of 18 days in the field and moving in on and around vehicles and field exercises my phone case took a beating with no damage to my phone. I did note that as others have stated the case has started to show some wear but that is to be expected. I for one am just glad that I had my Armor case when I looked at the phones of others in my platoon that did NOT fair as well with broken, cracked and shattered screens. Some with protective cases some without.
