Seems that being a professional iPhone case is no longer enough; you now need to be pro elite. At least, you have to be if you want to play in Element Case’s league. The company has just announced the Element Case Vapor Pro Elite for iPhone 4/4S. And if being elite wasn’t enough, they’re also “extremely limited.” What a snobbish industry this has become.
Since we know you’re asking, this is what makes them both elite and limited:
Made with certified exotic wood, special hard plating and buttery soft leather, the Element Case® Vapor Pro ELITE™ takes every detail to the limit. Available in four different models with three different finishes, users are able to completely customize their case. This case is reinforced with new CNC grip detail, reducing weight and providing a sure grip. All Element Case Vapor Pro ELITE cases include a transit kit, which offers a $45 value including a display shield screen protector, EVA molded foam zipper case and a Vapor speed wrench. Element Case Vapor Pro ELITE cases are Made in the USA.
The Vapor Pro Elite is available in four initial variations:
The Nickel/Brown edition ($179.99) has a nickel plated perimeter frame and comes with an anodized brown power button, rich dark leather back plate and ear pad kit, a genuine Ziricote certified wood RF bridge.
The Nickel/Cream ($179.99) edition has a nickel plated perimeter frame and comes with a silver button, soft cream colored leather back plate and ear pad kit, a light colored genuine Chechen certified wood RF bridge.
Nothing says extreme more than satin black type 3 military spec “hard” anodizing. It looks good, feels good and wears good; and now it comes on the Pro Elite Black/Gold ($169.99) model along with soft black leather back plate and ear pad kit, gold plated power button and screws, and a CNC machined aerospace polymer RF insert.
For the person who prefers the clean Apple look we offer the Pro Elite in Frost/White ($169.99). The soft silver glow of this case come from our proprietary Flux Finish. The leather back plate and ear pad kit is soft white leather and the RF bridge is a translucent, CNC machined aerospace polymer.
The Vapor Pro Elite is also available in three different extreme finishes: anodizing, polished clear anodizing, and warm nickel plating.
