Element Case Debuts Sector 5 Aluminum iPhone 5 Bumper Case

Element Case has secretly announced its latest addition to its iPhone metal case lineup called the Sector 5. This is Element Case's most extreme and over-engineered machined aluminum bumper case yet that features a radical new design. The Sector 5's CNC trussed design is extremely rigid yet lightweight. For the first time, the Sector 5 utilizes a unique multi-link fastening and modular system that claims to enable users to quickly install and remove the case off of their phone using just one screw, while the interesting modular construction will allow for future add-ons and upgrade accessories.

The Sector's anodized aluminum is finished off using Element Case's brilliant matte Flux coating in a gun metal grey color. The Sector case will not interfere with the iPhone's reception thanks to its plastic RF bridge insert. It'll include two black and grey Ultrasuede back plate skins and a transit kit. Element Case's new Sector 5 case is available for $140.

The new Vapor Pro Elite Black Ops 2 also features a unique and beveled, true gun grip-style 1911 G10 machined hard back plate exclusively made by veteran firearms grip maker, VZ Grips.

Element Case's Vapor Pro Elite Black Ops 2 case is available now for a cool $180. In case you're thinking about getting that awesome VZ Grips 1911 G10 iPhone grip by itself, luckily it's also available separately for $40, and can be applied like a normal skin.

Ag++ Aluminum Bumper Case, Another iPhone Bumper Beauty

We be you thought iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 cases got boring right? How about these latest CNC machined aluminum bumper cases designed by Italian designer Andrea Ponti dubbed the Ag++. Although this looks like another impossibly comfortable to hold Draco IV bumper, the Ag++ was designed to be ergonomic when held and features a beautiful two-tone color scheme that's available in a slew of different colors from glossy to matte finished. The bumper case has a two-piece, slim construction that comes together and ia secured using two hex screws.

The Ag++ aluminum bumper case is lined with shock absorbing lining and offers direct access to all ports and buttons , and includes two carbon fiber-like black and silver back skins at $50. Yes it looks pretty, but the company hasn't mentioned whether or not the Ag++ degrades the iPhone's reception being that it's fully made out of metal.

Rokform's Rokbed Fuzion Aluminum Hybrid Case Slides On Your iPhone

Rokform is saying goodbye to its aluminum Rokbed iPhone 4 case for a more appropriate hybrid case called the Rokbed Fuzion.

Aviation Aluminum Bumper Looks Affordably Good

Every now and then we stumble upon some new kind of aluminum bumper, and as you know, we love us aluminum bumper cases. This one comes to us from an accessory company that calls itself GGMM. GGMM's Aviation bumper is CNC machined from a single block of anodized aluminum with anti-slip micro machined jimping to help with grip like we've seen on the Blade aluminum bumper. The Aviation is compatible with both iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and was designed to have a simplistic slim profile with some interesting aspects. This is certainly not one of those aluminum bumper cases that will make you drool out of curiosity, though it has its own charm and is one of the most affordable all-aluminum bumper we've seen to date at around $25. 

You can grab one in 7 different colors if you head over to eBay.
