The depth rated OtterBoxes are only rated to 100 feet by their manufacturer. You're above 4 atmospheres at 100 feet; good chance the case could crack or the seal fail.

Dove with a chap on the Duane who was using a modified case - believe it was an Otter - to house some batteries leading to a HID. Epoxy sealed the wires which ran thru a hole he had drilled in the side of teh case. At 106 FSW it flooded, but his modification may have been at fault.

Next time I decide to go to that depth I might try taking an empty case with me to see what happens. Would not put an iPhone in that case...
