    I like a few of them but to much money. Especially when the new iPhone is just around the corner.

    Man I've been waiting for them to do a nickel case again, but $179?! That's $20 away from another iPhone.

    Previous Vapor case nuked the GPS on my iPhone 4. Is there any reason to think these would be different?

    The Vapor 4 nuked all signals pretty badly, regardless of the finish. If these Elite cases are like the Vapor Pros they will be much better.

    It's pretty ridonkulous that price. At that price I'd expect it to be gold plated. And that's not an exaggeration. Anyway, we should have a review up very soon :)

    I must admit, that case looks fantastic in your video. To bad it's so expensive. Can't wait to hear the rest of your review!

    Meh...they haven't listen to their customers at all. There's still gaps in between the frame and the iPhone, what a disappointment!!!

    $179....really?

    I would pay $40 MAX for it given the flaws of the material and the gap issue. If anybody knows science, Nickel is known to drastically cut signal strength as it's worst than aluminum. Save your money.

    Thanks for the video...
    The case looks kinda cheap though with that chrome looking finishing.
    Looking forward to your full review though.

    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.

    Crazy.

    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.
