Element Case reveals their new Solace case for iPhone 5/5s - Enter to win your very own!

We are a big fan of Element Case around here. Their designs and quality are almost unmatched when it comes to iPhone cases. Their latest edition, Solace, is no exception to that. Blending the perfect fusion of form and function, this ultra-sleek design delivers the world-class luxury of the Ronin case in a package made to be more affordable for the high end accessories connoisseur at $79.95. With colors available including Italian Red, Satin Black, Deep Blue Metallic, and Pearl Grey Metallic, CNC-machined aluminum end caps and integrated buttons combine with a solid chassis for unrivaled protection and fashion, this case is sure to be a favorite.

“Solace is the perfect case for a style-seeker who wants a protective case to compliment the design of the iPhone 5S,” said Jeff Sasaki, CEO of Element Case. “We focused on creating an affordable case that serves the discerning taste of Element Case customers.”

By melding CNC machined aluminum with thinly molded high strength polycarbonate, Element Case brings to market the slimmest case of the Element Case line without sacrificing protective integrity or striking good looks for which the company are known. You will definitely want to take a closer look at the new Solace line. While you're there, take a look at those four colors we mentioned, then come back here and leave a comment letting us know which is your favorite. Three iMore readers will win one Solace case in the color of their choosing! As these cases only fit the iPhone 5 and 5s, you'll want to be sure that is the device you own before entering. Good luck everyone! We'll announce the winners next week.

Funny. I was just showing this red case to my wife yesterday. Her exact words were "Nice, but $79? Really?" I quickly left Element Case's website before she could see the Sector 5 Carbon Fiber's price as that's what I've had wrapped around my iPhone 5 for a few months.........

YoEJ says:

Very stylish! The metal band with the notched corners and the angled cut where the band meets the rest of the case gives it a modern yet tough look. It is difficult to take your eyes off of the Italian Red case, although I am sure if it wasn't hidden behind, the Deep Blue Metallic case would be just as enticing.

I got the blue leather case the apple makes when i got my phone yesterday. I like the way it feels alot and will probably protect it pretty well since when i got my iPhone 5 i went almost a year without a case and all was well until a a few months ago and i dropped it from far less of a height then any other time and of course the screen broke then i lost it a few weeks after. Anyways i like the satin black one a lot.
