As I am outside quite a bit I have to make sure I keep dust and moisture off of my iPhone. To this end both the Commuter and the Commuter TL did a great job of covering and protecting my iPhone. They are not as good as the Defender for iPhone but in the end I did not have to worry about dirt and dust in the ports. They also did a fair job against dropping and bumping the phone, again they are no match for the Defender but then again they are much less bulky and look… less industrial. Both cases also offer textured sides for better grip.Value
At $34.99 for the Commuter
and $29.95 for the Commuter TL
both are excellent values and well worth it for the extra protection they give to your expensive iToy. You can grab these directly from Otterbox on their website.Conclusion
Ever since I first started using Otterbox products I have been impressed with their quality and the effort they put into each product. The Commuter and Commuter TL are no exception. They offer good protection for your iPhone while not taking away from the looks of the device. There is one item that I wished Otterbox had included with the Commuter at least; that is a belt clip. I do not like to carry my phone in my pocket and found it annoying to have to do so while testing the Commuter [and TL]. Still I have to say that if you are looking for a case for your iPhone that can keep it clean and blemish free while in your pocket or purse then the Commuter and Commuter TL [if you want additional colors] could be the right choice for you.
