OtterBox Heavy Duty Belt Clip

Men and Women in Law Enforcement, Public Safety, Fire and Rescue, and the military all know how brutal our line of work can be on items we use daily like sunglasses, watches, and of course our BlackBerry's! I've gone through my fair share of all of the above from nice Bullova watches, Oakley Sunglasses, and even BlackBerry Curves and Pearls alike. But then one day the clouds parted and up from the sea arose a company who's main objective was to stop me from destroying at least one thing I held dear. Enter... OtterBox.

Now I'm going to delve a little bit into why I love and cherrish my OtterBox and why so many of my colleagues have been influenced into leaving their lesser cases for this durable and rugged system. For those who do not know, the OtterBox system incorporates a plastic dust sheild (however I did cut it off around the camera and flash to keep my picture quality from degrading), a hard plastic case, and a rubberized outer skin. Then to top it all off Otterbox throws in a belt-clip holster to sweeten the deal making this one of the most cost effective ways to protect your Berry.
