Product Description

Trusted, Rugged Protection

Some tablet users may be content with minimal protection for their Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9”; others are looking for moderate coverage. Then there are those who want to protect their investment and latest prized possession at the highest-level possible. The multi-layer, rugged Defender Series for the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9” case is inspired by the latter.

Rugged, Multi-Layer Case

OtterBox is the innovator of the first multi-layer case. Since that first case many have tried to create something similar, but nothing beats the original. Innovative engineering and precision design work together to create this multi-layer case that provides trusted protection against drops, dust, scratches, and shock.

High-Quality Materials

The Defender Series is made up of a two-piece polycarbonate inner shell that deflects impact force, a self-adhering screen protector that guards against scratches and scrapes, and an outer durable synthetic rubber slip cover that absorbs impact. These materials work together to take on the heavy use and accidental abuse that can happen to your vital device.

Included Shield Stand

Defender Series tablet cases come standard with a shield stand. The integrated shield stand acts as a protective cover on the front or the back of the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9” and doubles as a kickstand for typing or viewing.

Technology Use Without Worry

This is the case you need if you want to be careless, work in harsh conditions, are tough on technology, anticipate heavy use, or are just plain clumsy. Enjoy your work, your life, your adventures, whatever they may be, without worry of damaging your Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9” along the way.

Defender Series Case Features

  • Robust, 3-layer protective case withstands drops, bumps, and shock
  • Self-adhering screen protector guards against scratches and scrapes to the touch screen
  • Port covers block dust and debris from entering and accumulating in ports and jacks
  • Integrated shield stand acts as a protective cover and doubles as a kickstand convenient for typing and viewing angles

Don’t Worry, It’s In An OtterBox

OtterBox is the #1 most trusted case brand in smartphone protection.* Known for rugged protective products, OtterBox cases deliver incredibly tough protection for your always-on lifestyle. Adventure with confidence — you have OtterBox protection on your side. *Source: The NPD Group/U.S. Consumer Tracking Service, 1/2012-6/2013

5.0 out of 5 stars Armor fit for a Mandalorian. November 15, 2013
By J
Verified Purchase
When I initially got my HDX I was surprised at how light and thin it was. Naturally this made it compact and easy to carry, but also it worried me that it could break easily. Well now, I'm not worried about that at all. The instructions were a bit vague, but it took me only a few minutes(and since I bite my nails, a small screwdriver) to get it open and installed. Just make sure you thoroughly clean your screen, the back of the built in screen protector and if you used a cleaner be sure to let them dry. I had to open mine back up to finish drying it so it didn't streak. Another nice thing about it is since the edges are flared out it gives you a much better grip on it without having to put any pressure on the screen, which had me worried about either damaging it or dropping it. After putting it on, granted it adds some weight and size but it is now, nigh indestructible. I initially was worried about dropping 80 bucks on a case, but this was money well spent.

Later, after the case was on I was getting in my car and accidentally dropped it. Now I'm sitting here watching Netflix on my undamaged HDX while they are pouring new cement into the crater in my driveway. I'm not sure if Otterbox is in any way affiliated with the Mandalorians or the Imperium of Man, but their armor crafting skill suggests that they may be. An excellent product which I would recommend to anyone using an HDX.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad and The Ugly December 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
The included instructions were difficult, however the website video was adequate to put it together. One problem I experienced was lint/fuzz on the inside of the screen protector. Had to dismantle the entire thing several times to clean it. Finally I used eyeglass cleaner and cloth to get the screen clear of debris. That seems to have worked.

Protection is excellent...strong and tough... although the weight and bulk are about twice the original item. The case does make it heavy to hold. Not a problem if you use a stand instead of handheld for reading. However, I found this stand to be a bit awkward...too straight to use in the up position(C) and too low to use in the down positions (A&B). Position D is somewhat OK but still difficult for reading.

All in all, great protection, poor instructions and limited stand positions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Otter box Defender for Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 November 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
Best protection for Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. It protects the entire device. A note to Otter Box is to make a detachable swivel stand for more convenience and a lighter case. The case is a little heavy. Other than those 2 issues, I love it. I can even feel comfortable with letting my grandson carry Kindle up and down stairs without worrying about him damaging it. Make sure Kindle is turned off before placing it in the case. I say this only because my text to speech would not work until I turned Kindle off and then turned it back on. Everything works perfect now. I don't even have a complaint about the $79.00 cost after receiving it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gret protective cover but naturally it's heavy. December 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this OTTER BOX for my HDX BECAUSE I wanted max protection for my Kindle HDX. The OTTER BOX arrived in 3 sections, a back, screen cover and a stand which doubles as a outer cover. The stand and the covers are very strong and protective.

I found two dislikes to the OtterBox Which may not bother some people. The first one involves the weight of the OtterBox itself. I think it more than doubles the weight of the HDX. Second, with the OtterBox installed it is difficult to press the on off button that is on the back of the OtterBox. I have to use my stronger right hand and really pressed the button very hard To activate it after it has been asleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Product..Buy It... February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase
Hi Folks,

I purchase thousands of dollars worth of goods from Amazon every year. Some things I keep, some I return if the quality and design is not up to par. The OtterBox for the Kindle 8.9" HDX is a slam dunk winner all around. The quality is solid, the design is almost flawless. The tablet protector case fits perfectly. It is worth every penny you pay. The OtterBox was purchased along with the Kindle 8.9" HDX by Amazon for my almost 80 year old mother. She absolutely loves the Kindle 8.9" HDX in which the iPad does not even come close to matching, the performance of the Kindle HDX makes the iPad look like a cheap children's toy from China. My mother also loves the quality of the OtterBox in which she has dropped several times with no damage to the Kindle....! If this review helped you, please click, "YES" under "Was this review helpful to you?" Thank you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a Great Value December 13, 2013
By ChefRon
Verified Purchase
It does it's job protecting the HDX. However, the price is steep for a piece of plastic. The Otterbox costs 20 percent of the purchase price of the HDX unit. That is excessive!!! And finally, in the horizontal position, the viewing angle could be more upright, or at least adjustable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Causes Kindle HDX 8.9 Lockups January 4, 2014
I love Otterbox Defender cases for all our iPads and iPhones so I naturally bought one for my wife's Kindle Fire HDX 8.9... HUGE mistake

Her Kindle was constantly locking up and the buttons were not very usable. Her Kindle locked up completely so we called Amazon and they told us it was the Otterbox case and a known issue to remove it from the case. As soon as we did the Kindle worked perfectly.

Otter Box Defender case for Kindle Fire HD 8.9
I'm curious about that too... I am getting ready to order a cover but would prefer something that doesn't force me to remove the Fire to use the camera. Does anyone have any info? The description of the Otter Box doesn't say one way or another.
