It reminds me of those bizarre vinyl bra things I have seen on a lot of cars in the US to protect against stone chips. I cannot understand the logic of avoiding the risk of something possibly looking horrible in future by guaranteeing that it looks horrible all the time.
The Mophie Juice Pack Case is just a little bit fater because it holds a backup rechargeable battery. so along with protection I have a lot of battery when needed.
I agree the Otterboxes would be over kill for my needs.
