    I checked out the website..but there is no defender series for plus version. What gives? Will it come out? Did anyone hear anything about it?

    There is no timeline out there. I have moved on. Thinking about the Griffin Survivor Slim as my rugged case. Seems to offer the same durability and I already have a glass screen protector installed

    I can't believe Otterbox still hasn't released the Defender case for the 6 Plus. I wonder what the hold up is.

    When the Defender appears for the 6 Plus it had better be freaking spectacular. Otherwise they have taken too long and many former Otterbox disciples have bought a Pelican, Griffin, etc. tough case to "get by" will be lost customers forever. I'm all for getting it right over getting it first, but it's been long enough, IMO.

    I agree and I have to say I am a fan of the Pelican Protector and they offer the same warranty as Otterbox.

    The buttons, especially the On-Off button is tough on the Pelican Voyager. I can push it in ok it just takes a concentrated effort as opposed to a quick stab. I'm using the Tech 21 Tactical which I like but it doesn't have a compatible holster which may drive me back to the Pelican if Otterbox doesn't come through soon.

    I have same problem with Pelican Voyager.

    On-Off button requires too much effort. Otherwise case is OK.

    I also have problem with their screen protector. Too loose at the edges.

    Yeah, I have a glass protector the included one from Pelican is problematic.

    I have their Protector case and like it. It's a very basic looking case but it's durable with a great warranty.

    If you think the Pelican's on-off button is difficult.....you need to try the on-off button with my iphone 6 Otterbox Defender.........Arnold Schwarzenegger would have a tough time!!!

    Otterbox has the nerve to have reviews for that case on their site knowing it's bogus. I don't see how they can't make the defender like the HTC one m8 version. Nice and thin but it looks like it will be just like the 6, slightly rounded
