I have a motorola droid that I use when I run. I've been trying to find a container that allowed me to use the touch screen, but that seems to be asking too much. I was caught in multiple down pours this last weekend while fishing. No problem for the otterbox. I have some webbing, that will loop through the narrow edges to make a belt. this will make it easy to access the phone.
I stuffed bubble wrap into the box to keep the phone from bouncing around. It would be nice if Ottterbox made an inflatable/deflatable bladder inside that you could inflate to keep the items inside from bouncing around. Otherwise this is the best container I've seen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
