    Improved over the first version that came out for the iPhone 5. I had the first one that came out for the iphone 5 and the material, workmanship were terrible. I sent it back for a refund after about 2 weeks because the rubber split and stretched out of shape. Anyway the person in customer service I have been emailing says that they have changed it and also reworked the belt clip. I was just wondering if anyone had gotten one of the defenders and if so was it any better.

    Oh by the way Roll Tide lets go for #16

    I don't know which release I have but my iPhone 5 Defender is very much improved over the ones I had for iPhone 4. Better fit, feel, everything.

    the defender i had for the iphone 5 was made of a softer rubber and had a loose fit and the piece of rubber where the belt clip went on ended up splitting in half . The texture of the rubber had a more rough feel to it unlike the slicker feel of the one for the 4 or 4s. Anyway by it being a rougher texture it had a problem with catching lint , per hair or whatever touched it just clinged to it. Very hard to keep looking good. The defenders I have seen for the 4 or 4s had a much better feel and fit. Anyway otterbox claims to have improved and made changes since the first version came out for the iphone 5. Anyway I guess I'll have to look at the store and see for myself what if anything has changed. What worries me is like roll-tide says is that they may not be in stores and they will have to sell those down before they get a new shipment.

    I just got mine today and it feels good. It isn't loose at all. I won't be using the belt clip so I don't know if that has been improved though. So far I really like it.

    Have to update my post. I had to return the Otterbox. Found a better and cheaper case in the Survivor. It's dust proof.
