    Today at Wal Mart I saw a smartphone case, turn up the damn thing was 69.88. How the hell can this thing command that kind of price? I mean it was camo but other than that it didn't appear to be any thing special, I mean I paid like 15 bucks for the camo case for my Tundra:headscratch::dunno:

    Was it an Otter Box?

    The Otterbox Defenders are normally about $50+

    otterbox is the brand of the general go-to for rugged cases for smart phones.

    I have some issues with otterboxes and don't like them, much prefer trident cases myself.

    Okie - you know how retail works, most things are overpriced and underperforming - trident and otterbox deliver for the cost invested.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was some knock off garbage trying to get people to pay oodles for nothing.

    It's a brand of cell phone case.

    They are very good at protecting smart phones from clumsy idiots.

    If it was a LifeProof that's a great price. If it was an element vapor that's a steal!

    I don't think Walmart sells either of those though.

    My place of employment sells Lifeproofs for $80 and I think its probably worth it since its waterproof, dust proof, shockproof etc.

    Cheaper that a $650 Iphone without a contract when you break yours.

    I bought an otterbox for my iphone 4 after my 3yr old got a hold of it and I had to spend $150 getting the screen replaced. Now I can let him play with it all the time and have no issues.

    In fact it did such a great job at protecting it that I bought one for my ipad too. Small investment to make to keep expensive stuff protected from daily life with a toddler in the house.

    Magpul is making an iphone case that looks a little like their magazines and AR parts, from the same plastic - they go for $9.99. I'll probably get one.
