The Defender Series offers 3 layers of protection so you dont have to fear the inevitable oopsie or accident. The two piece polycarbonate inner layer snaps together around the device to form a secure foundation. The inner layer includes a built-in screen protector that prevents scratches while memory foam pads cradle the device to provide added shock absorption. The outer layer is made up of rugged silicone that wraps around the inner layer to absorb impact. The Defender Series Galaxy S3 case comes with a ratcheting belt holster that can also double as a viewing stand.
