    I've got a job where frankly, I sweat, my pants pockets get moist etc. The defender is awesome but the few openings it has get wet. I try to wipe them every hour or so (im not on a schedule but i probably look at it at about that rate). Anyone with experience have any insight? I have friends who say their Defender leaves their phone flawless when the take them out for whatever reason. But I'd imagine that the speaker getting a little moist all the time isn't good. On the other hand maybe it's no big deal. Either way, Im keeping my eye on waterproof cases supposedly coming soon...the taktik, the lifeproof, and the otterbox armoured.

    Get the Lifeproof case for iPhone 5 when it's released.
    I have the defender but I'm waiting for the LP.

    I'm in the same situation. Better to just use the belt clip when working is what I do. Or I just set it someplace with in a few steps while I'm working. Doing hard physical work in 90 plus temperature leaves you soaked like Patrick Ewing in his prime at the garden. My pants or shorts will look like you just jumped out of the pool.

    YEah, I was gonna say use the belt clip, or place it in a zip-lock before working I guess? I'm not sure if that would help.
