My iPhone runs naked with no case at all. When I picked up my 5s last year I did buy a case that was probably the thinnest I had ever seen. The thing was about as thick as a fingernail, and because of this didn’t offer any real protection against dropping it. I got it because it was nearly invisible and didn’t take away from the design aesthetic of the phone itself. I stopped using it because it was so thin it tended to flex and allow dirt and other pocket funk to get between it and the phone. I would have probably picked up another case, but the problem is, most are either butt ugly or so big they make the phone hard to fit in a pocket. So my phone has been naked for the last 9 months.
Today when I was out on Kickstarter looking around I came across MRD and the iPhone case they are milling out of a solid block of aluminum and I thought, “this I could do”. The Aegis iPhone case and wallet are CNC machined and processed to the same exacting standards as Apple products with a measurement accuracy level of .0005 inches. Thats less than the diameter of a human hair.
Designed by Michael Rahban, the sleek case and wallet are produced from a solid block of 6061 aluminum, glass bead blasted, and anodized in the very same process that Apple currently uses. This allows the case to be aesthetically pleasing, and extremely durable. The design mirrors the design integrity of the iPhone itself down to the chamfered edges on the case. Inside there is a nanofoam suction pad securely holds the phone in place ensuring that your case and phone do not separate when an impact occurs.
The wallet has some unique features as well. The materials provide a blocking mechanism against having your credit cards scanned by nefarious criminal types. It looks as though it will hold quite a bit, and it can be combined with the phone case to create one complete package.
