Otterbox has been the most trusted brand in phone protection for as long as smartphones have been around. The problem has always been you had to be willing to make the trade-off of protection for simplicity and size. An Otterbox case with real protection always came with bulk that made you think you might as well put the thing on your belt. Thankfully, the designers at Otterbox have created a case with serious drop, dust, snow, and mud protection that is as thin as a protective case can get. It also includes sound scoops that direct sound out of the case through transparent audio membranes so you don’t have to yell “WHAT?” into your phone because the case muffles every conversation. It’s $80 and available right now (but only for iPhone 7 and 7 Plus).
