Element case Sector 5 Black Ops

Element releases the Black Ops Elite Case for iPhone 5 - We have two to give away!

Element Case, the premier manufacturer of high-end smart phone and tablet accessories, has just launched a special edition iPhone 5 case tailor-made for the military or firearms aficionado. Dubbed the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite, this unique case combines a CNC-machined, aircraft-grade aluminum frame with back plates crafted by Hogue, Inc. – the leading manufacturer of firearm grips in the US. These backings utilize a highly specialized material called “G 10” – a high-pressure, thermoset plastic laminate comprising multiple layers of woven fiberglass mesh bound with impregnated epoxy resin.

The end result is a case that provides tactical aesthetics and grip in a package built for only the most discerning iPhone 5 owner. Available color schemes include all-black, green camouflage, beige camouflage and more. Available now for $219.95, the Sector 5 Black Ops can be purchased via the Element Case website.

“The Black Ops Elite gives your phone a look like nothing else in this world,” said Jeff Sasaki, Founder & CEO of Element Case. “The major aesthetic details from the camouflage backings, combined with fine points of detail down to the corrugated mesh behind the open end of the perimeter aluminum frame, blend to craft a unique and bold statement for the most discerning military or firearms enthusiast. Genuine parts from Hogue, Inc. make the case authentic and tactfully brilliant.”

The Black Ops Elite is clearly a fantastic case sure to appeal to many of you out there. If you'd like to enter to win one of these for your iPhone 5 (sorry, only the iPhone 5 is compatible with this case), head over to the Element Case website at the link below and take a look at the color choices. Come back here and leave a comment letting us know which color is your favorite, and you could win it! We will choose two lucky winners and announce them on the blog next week. Good luck!
