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!



I ordered and have since received the Sector 5 FE which I believe to be the best looking case for an iPhone 5, well, until now. Although it has an entirely different "vibe," the new Ronin is beautiful. I want one.

I've never seen an iPhone case that I fall in love with at first sight. This is the one for me, I must have one!

OMG ; that is the Most BadAss case I've ever seen !! It's so me , & I would pimp this thing everywhere I go ! Please allow me to show off your case everywhere but giving me on , otherwise , I'll have to by one ! Not that I can afford it , & my Wife will probably kill me , but it looks so worth it !!!!

Yay! I want one of these...been wanting an Element Case for a long time...want one...please? :)

This case, when coupled with the ridiculously unnecessary purchase I made of Frodo's sting sword back in 2003 at The Lord of the Rings marathon, will finally validate my purchase thinking.

I would really love this case and i think it would compliment the iphone 5 white really well. I had an element case once for my iphone 4 and it was great , so i trust this one would be too

Always been a fan of Element Case, great american company and even better products oh and outstanding customer support. Nothing like a sleek case for a sleek iPhone 5..I must have this!!

This is by far the best iPhone 5 or any other iPhone case i've ever seen. I want one, better yet, I want to win this one.

Bought an element case for my 4S and just let it sit in my desk due to it killing me reception, wold be nice to win one to make up for that loss.

I'd love to win one! It seems to be one of the most natural-feeling cases one could ever get in their lives... There's a lot of synthetic and metallic cases on the market. This one breaks the trend and sets a new one! :D

To the Element folks... I would love to have one of you cases since they seem to be part of the second wave of real craftsmanship to be targeted at the new iPhone.. Good work.

Thanks !!!

OH YEAH! I've been drooling over an element case since the first time you reviewed them.
This one (Ronin) is PREPOSSESSING!!!

This looks like an awesome case. I would surely love to have one. Thanks iMore for the opportunity.

The RONIN Case is wonderful and I know I will love it.......... I want to WIN IT TODAY!
THANKS FOR OFFERING IT AS A POSSIBLE PRIZE....... I will await its delivery in the mail !
Loyal Fan of APPLE and iMORE..............

I love these cases.. I found Element over a year ago and have been drooling at their products ever since. This would greatly compliment my iPhone 5!

Would complement my Glass Screen Protector well. Having an iPhone is more then just a phone it's almost like an accessory.

I totally love Element they make the best cases, I hope to win RONIN for my iPhone5, hope I get picked.

Happy Holidays To All

My iPhone 5 would love the chance to be wrapped in the sheer luxury of this case. Please pick me to be the new master of this Ronin!

This case looks amazing! I have been looking for a element case for my iPhone 5 for a while and didn't know which one to get because they all look so nice! I would absolutely love one!!! Would go great with my white iPhone 5!

I would love one! My birthday is this Saturday and I would really appreciate it if I could get this as my gift from iMore, since I promote your website to all my friends, and go on it every day! <3

I've had 3 iPhones and have had to do MANY self repairs and screen replacements because I like my iPhone naked. BUT THIS, this is a thing of beauty and would go great with my new iPhone 5 that I ordered yesterday. It's the one case that would make me change my ways!

The metal in case look cool. All I have is a cheap soft sheel case would love this case for business occasions !!!! PICK ME PLEASE !!!!

That's an awesome looking case that you all have created! I would love to show my friends how awesome it fits on my iPhone 5.

I haven't found a nicer looking case I'd consider covering my iphone 5 up with! Beautiful case! Would love one, please!

Awesome! This would make my wife's Christmas. She was just telling me that she wanted something totally different for a case for her new 5, which started me hunting. This would totally fit the bill! Help a brother out, here...
