    do not have one, but I saw euro koncepts have them on sale for $55 shipped. just look on their site for 100% authentic carbon fiber case.

    http://www.eurokoncepts.com/

    if you do buy one, please review it though

    Seems like the 100% Carbon Fiber may cause some signal issues because CF is a conductive material.

    Think I may get the MonCarbon case.

    the monCarbone is 100% carbon fiber case. the other case with ABS sides is made by DRO Concepts.

    and

    http://www.eurokoncepts.com/Carbon-Fiber-iPhone-4-Case_p_49.html

    the same products, respectively


    I suggested buying it through euro koncepts because it was cheaper.

    No signal loss using the monCarbone as far as I can remember. It's super thin.

    I did some research on the MonCarbone...The sides are actually black fiberglass as it stats on their blog. Just a matter of wanting the gloss one or the matte one? Might have to order both and see what one I like the best.

    I am not saying its the 100% carbon fiber. Its what the product is called on their site. Regardless, its the same monCarbone cases offered in matte or glossy.

    i like the case but i like snap cases to have the top left corner and the left rail fully connected around the volume buttons for more stability of the case

    Ordered both the matte and glossy MonCarbone cases. Should be here around Tuesday. They stat they will fit the Verizon phone as I am hoping. Will give a review and some nice pictures after I get them.

    personally i'm not a fan of the monCarbone cases due to their design that leaves the top and bottom of the phone exposed. of the two times i've accidentally dropped my iphone, both times it landed on where these areas are exposed by most snap-on cases and thus would not have been protected.

    i've decided to go with the slider style case from DROConcepts: http://droconcepts.com/iPhone4/carbon-fiber-iphone-4-case

    i found this thread in a search for reviews of carbon fibre cases and havent found any reviews of the DROConcepts case. therefore, i'll be sure to do a review of it once it comes in.

    That's a great looking case. I've always looked at my Body Glove Vibe and inCase Slider and thought to myself....'how awesome would this be if there was a carbon fiber version'.....apparently pretty awesome...:)

    I had the cf case from moncarbone on my 3GS. Fit and Finish was excellent. 10 out of 10.

    I would imagine that the case for the iPhone 4 would be just as good.
