They make the best iPhone cases on the market today imo. That being said their price points are absurd and the $23 knock-offs are the best bang for your buck. I have two of them and spent a total of $45. I will not spend more than $60 for a case, and like someone else mentioned, you can get a bran new iPhone for $20 more.
Your absolutely right about their prices, but I've learned that if you want something bad enough, get it. Because if you don't and you miss the opertunity, it'll bother you for a very long time.
I've fallen for the Nickel Brown and have just made the order. Was going to get the Cream for the wife, but I know I couldn't let her destroy it(which she would) so have ordered a black Graft Leverage for her, although I'd have preferred to give her a white one.
