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

This Defender Series case comes standard with a shield stand. This stand provides added protection when covering the touch screen during transport, and also provides for convenient use with comfortable typing and viewing angles.

Technology Use Without Worry

This is the case you need if you want to be careless, are tough on technology, anticipate heavy use, or are just plain clumsy. Enjoy reading wherever you like without worrying about damaging your Kindle Paperwhite along the way.

It’s An OtterBox

With any OtterBox protective solution, you can expect a premium product from the #1 most trusted case brand in smartphone protection.* Known for rugged protective products, OtterBox cases deliver incredibly tough protection to prevail through your always-on lifestyle. Adventure confidently and take your device with you knowing 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 A Quality Product and Best Alternative November 19, 2013
Color Name:Pink/Papaya|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely the best protective case. Why complain about the plastic screen cover? There is none really. Who would want a screen cover? When finished reading, just snap on the hard shell cover and your device is better protected than all other alternatives. When reading you don't need a cover, and when finished you have the hard shell cover that fits perfectly, and makes your device nearly industructible. Exttemely well designed and bulit. A quality product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it. October 15, 2013
Color Name:Pink/Papaya|Verified Purchase
I love Otterbox products. There is no better protection out there. The only thing that I don't like about this cover in particular, is that it does not come equipped with a magnet on the cover to turn on the device when uncovered and turn off the device when the cover is put on. I was used to the cover that I originally bought with the Paperwhite. I didn't even know where the on button was! The cover made it so convenient that it spoiled me. Other than that, the Otterbox works great. So, if you don't mind that you have to turn the device on and off manually, it's all good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice case with not very usable plastic cover sheet. November 6, 2013
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I really like the sturdiness of of this case. The only problem I have with it is the plastic screen cover. Part of the reason I like about the paper white is that there is no glare from the screen but this plastic cover is shiny so I am not using it. It is also difficult to install correctly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well December 8, 2013
Color Name:Pink/Papaya|Verified Purchase
Just like for my iPhone, it is a little bulky; but it protects my Kindle. I dropped it in the garage the other day; and it survived with no damage. That is exactly what I need. It does its job.

2.0 out of 5 stars Screen Protector not as advertised October 15, 2013
Color Name:Pink/Papaya|Verified Purchase
I agree with previous review. Very disappointed with Otterbox's choice to falsely advertize: "So it’s only natural that the built-in screen protector of the Defender Series keeps your Amazon Paperwhite’s display looking like the day you bought it with a strong protective film that guards against smudges and scratches while still maintaining touch screen responsiveness." It was definitely NOT the typical Otterbox style of a built-in screen protector, but instead, a basic film screen protector that was included with the box. Seriously disappointed in Otterbox.

I wrote to Otterbox customer service about this concern & that I hope it was a mistake. I'll be returning this item back to Amazon if not. Too expensive to not have complete protection on all sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great protection April 18, 2014
Color Name:Black|Verified Purchase
I have had Otter Box Defender cases on more than one iPhone, an iPad mini, and full-sized iPad. Although this one does NOT have the built-in screen cover, I feel my Kindle is very well protected. I did not want the glare of a screen cover, and since I am using this device for ready only, I do not feel the need for it. The rubber outer covering is not too bulky and makes the device easy to grip. The wrap-around design protects from most falls. The snap on cover protects in my purse, and doubles as an easel if I want. As well, I find this case a lot easier to install than the iPad versions, although it may be that I am now familiar with it. I would definitely recommend.
