How OtterBox Protects Against a Chainsaw

Read Article


Over the weekend I was cutting trails through some thick brush with a chainsaw. I slipped while sawing through a log, and hit the active chainsaw against my leg. The saw immediately cut through my pants only to bog-down and stop when it hit the OtterBox-protected iPhone 5 that just happened to be in my front left pocket.

I have used an OtterBox case to protect all of my iPhones over the years with great success — but this time the box literally saved my leg. There was not a scratch on the phone, and not a drop of blood from my leg. I believe God was protecting me, but it’s pretty cool that he used an OtterBox to do it!
