And it's actually pretty slick, at least so far as OtterBox's often ridiculously bulk cases go. The Statement series as an attempt to offer the sort of ruggedized protection that's become practically synonymous with the case make, while not completely detracting from the phone's good looks.

The one-piece case features OtterBox's standard Certified Drop+ Protection seal, along with with a clear plastic back and leather accents that come in one of four colors. The color patch on the rear of the case is a sly nod to the back design of the original iPhone. It's one of the more tasteful designs I've seen on a ruggedized case.

The Statement is available for purchase through Apple for $40.
