Does this appeal to anyone?

Hand made real carbon fiber case

I'm considering it, but the price is not cheap at $119.99

Deciding between this and the Vaja slim jacket, just need to see some real pictures of it.

It looks looks cool but having to take it in and out every time would be a pain. No thanks.

It would interest me if it wasn't made by DRO Concepts. They make trash cases.

I must agree with ozziegn, I want a case that is always on protection (I just bought the Apple case) , but for traveling I could see an advantage.

But I really disagree with Abyssgh0st. I recently received a Dro concepts "Guardian" carbon fiber case as a gift for my iPhone 3gs (I'd never heard of them before this). It is very well made, the gloss finish really nice, and the quality of the carbon fiber work is top notch. I would recommend their iPhone cases to anyone.

Vaja also makes a nice product too. I had one of their cases on my original iPhone.

I pre-ordered one after I saw them on here (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=860208) and then again on iLounge.

I also ordered two of their carbon fiber iPhone cases at the same time which already came in and they ROCK! I can't wait for the iPad case to arrive.

That looks MUCH nicer in the concept pics than it does in the real one.

If I understand correctly, the real pics are from where it just came out of the mold, i.e. raw carbon fiber w/ resin without the glossy clear coat added. It will look a lot better once its sprayed with clear and buffed.

I'm not saying it'll be worth $120, just that it'll look a lot better with clear. Lol.
