Sector 5 carbon Fiber Edition iPhone Case
I’m assuming that your father has an iPhone because, come on you’re reading this site. This is by far m favorite phone case I have ever owned. I’ve been stopped more and asked about this case more than anything else I own. It always gets complements and I’ve dropped it a few times and there were no problems.
The Sector has a sleek ergonomic shape that is comfortable and easy to grip. The CNC “Trussed” design makes the Sector super strong and extremely lightweight while the Multilink fastening system allows the case to be installed or removed in seconds. The modular design will allow for upcoming add-ons and upgrades, and like our famous Vapor Case, the back will allow for removable back-plates in a variety of flavors!
