Element Case unleashes the Ronin for iPhone 5, and you can win one for free!

Enter now to win a $200 Ronin case from Element-Case!

Element Case makes some of the highest end, most exclusive, most luxurious iPhone and iPad accessories on the planet, and that's never been more true than with the Ronin for iPhone 5.

The Ronin FE blends CNC machined, aircraft-grade aluminum with ethically-sourced, renewable Ziricote wood offering a warm, lustrous finish and a soft, genuine leather backing for unrivaled style and protection unlike anything else in an iPhone case.

The Ronin features a wood and aluminum-blend frame completely encasing the iPhone 5’s perimeter with in-line volume, mute-switch and power button controls. Its slim-yet-stylish curves fully engulf iPhone 5 in a comfortable, smooth and luxurious package offering full protection and stand-out style no other aftermarket accessory can offer. Inspired by the clean lines of the “Katana,” or Samurai Sword, the Ronin bears its namesake for the legendary Japanese Samurai warriors with no allegiance to a lord or master -- thus the Ronin 5 lives in a category all its own.

I know they're drawing on Asian culture for inspiration, but to me the Ronin also looks like something straight out of the Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. It the kind of case Elrond or Galadriel would have born into battle and used to smite many a ruin upon the mountainsides.

But here's the best news of all... You can win one of your very own! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below telling Element Case you want one! We'll pick one of you at random, announce the winner in our usual post next week, and Element Case will send you your prize.

And if you just can't wait that long run, don't walk, over to Element Case and order yours now!

Element Case unleashes the Ronin for iPhone 5, and you can win one for free!



This case is absolutely beautiful, I'd love to snag one for my iPhone 5. I had an element case for my 4S and loved it.

Beautiful... This is the first case I've seen that looks good with metal that doesn't cover up the antennas on the back. Very purdy!! I Want Bad.

Wow. That is one really slick case. I'm not sure I could bring myself to buy one (I'm not that cool), but if I WON one, that would be awesome!

I've always wanted an Element Case and have lusted after them for some time now. I was planning on purchasing one for myself and the wife this Christmas.

That is the most gorgeous case I've seen! I really really really want one! My iPhone would be honored to wear it! :-)

Element cases are awesome! I've never owned one before but I have looked into them and they are pricey but beautiful. Would make a great addition to my new Portenzo ipad mini book case :)

Good lord that's a gorgeous case.. I'd love to buy one but I can't justify the purchase with xmas right around the corner. maybe someday they'll go on sale for a little less :)

Stunning case; my iPhone 5 is just about to be removed from its box and this case would dress it beautifully!
I want one!

This is the most spectacular case for iPhone 5 on the market. I would love to own one and would actually keep it on my phone, unlike other cases I have owned in the past.

I recently received my Pad & Quill Little Pocket Book and it's been great...but I'd gladly gift it to the iMore community if I had one of these classy Ronin cases. Looks absolutely gorgeous!

I'd love one of the cases. I think that wood is such a great compliment to the clean look of apple products!

The one case I have been searching for! Like its very very very......(outer voice)what did they tell me to say here?......which should've been inner voice...crap!

I am usually not one for putting a case on my iPhone, but this thing is so beautiful that I would GLADLY make an exception!

Oh please! Oh please! Oh please! ;-D I NEED this beautiful piece of artwork in my life! What a great way to show off a masterpiece!

Awesome. I just got my very first iPhone last week and have been thinking about putting a case on it. LOVE the look of this case! Fingers crossed :-)

Hello Element, I've spend a great deal of time mentally picturing it and I've come to the conclusion that my phone would benefit greatly from this case.

Element Case really makes such gorgeous hardware. The wood element adds an amazing warmth and sophistication to an already great design. Ronin all the way! Yes please!

Ronin, the Samurai without an Emperor. Beautiful case. I too serve no Emperor, so with all consideration, I'd love one.

Oh I WANT. I would literally sell my kidney for one of these sobs.

I couldn't afford to own one, I broke the bank on my devices to begin with, but to have one? Hot damn.

I am a big fan of Element Case. Have recommended several friends to Element. I think I deserve a Ronin, by way of 'Thanks'. Would look absolutely striking on my iPhone 5!

I've had a few element cases and I really enjoyed them. This one looks like something that's completely different and amazingly special. I'd love to have one, Element!

The Ronin for iphone5 looks amazing. I'd love one.
I had one of the japan cases from Element on my iphone 4s and loved it.
Would be great to upgrade with my new phone.

Definitely a slick case and it has the price tag to match! I would to win this for sure :)

I was just looking at this on their site, would be awesome to win one. I see Lunatik is close to rolling out the taktik 5 too, their website recently updated.
