anti-glare screen protector on my iPhone's screen before I put my iPhone in the Otterbox. No "Watermarks" what-so-ever!!
I tried everything else but putting this extra screen protector on the iPhone screen first is the only thing that worked for me. It is perfect!!! The screen is clear as it can be when in the Ottrebox! No glare at all!! I love my Otterbox!

As for putting a screen protector on...I would butttttttt...I don't have the most steady hands around.
I've tried putting on screen protectors on phones I've owned in the past and they always have air bubbles in them (which looks horrible..to me anyways).

Nice review, and I didn't know you were a firefighter! Great job! I love you guys.
I do roadside assistance for the insurance companies, and over this past weekend we got hammered by the remnants of Hurricane Ida in southeast Virginia. Three straight days of absolutely torrential rain and gale force winds. And yes, I was out those days, completely frozen and saturated. My iPhone was lucky to make it, I was nervous the water sensor was going to get tripped.
So a few days ago I bought a yellow Defender from eBay for $30 with free shipping. I can't wait to get it. I'll put up some pics.

Anyone have or know where to find some good profile pics of this case in comparison to everyday objects? I have the Switcheasy Rebel Serpent and I'm looking into getting this case but I think it may be to bulky for me. Do any stores carry these cases?

In fact be careful of certain after market car chargers. Some have too much "housing" around the pin connector and they will not fit into the case because the "shroud" is so close. I had a Griffin car charger with my iPhone before I got my Otterbox that would not fit up into the housing of the Case. I had to go get a different Griffin that did fit.
The moral of the Story? Test before you buy.
EDIT: SORRY!!! I almost forgot :o that the Otterbox Holster doubles as a stand for it. So if you want to us your iPhone as a Clock you can. This feature is demoed in one of the Defender series Videos. I have also attached some pics.

The clip that comes with the Otterbox is not very good IMO. I can not recommend using it. It falls out of the clip WAAY too easy! I usually wear Slacks or Khaki to work and the Ottebox fits easily into my front pocket. I hardly even notice it. In fact, most Jeans that I wear are looser fitting type and the Otterbox also fits easily into the front or back pocket with no problem or discomfort. In fact the case is so durable that I can actually put the phone in my back pocket and sit on it and not worry about breaking my phone!
If you wear tight fitting Jeans/Pants you may run into an issue. The Silicon skin does not allow the Case to slid in and out of a pocket very easily. But here is always a Jacket pocket.

I've thought about this case but went with the Impact instead.
How much bigger is the Defender compaired to the Impact or Commuter? Also how much more bulk does it add compaired to a Blackberry Cure with a Seidio Extended life battery? Can anybody compare it to that? That's what I came from to an iPhone and kept that in my pocket with a leather case.
I had a Commuter and returned it for the Impact, I wanted something that did not leave the screen so open and the defender looked to bulky at the time so I went with the Impact.
