    Agreed. I just have a problem dropping a buck and a half on a case; however, the Ion 4 is attractive for the price and seems to offer good protection.

    pretty dumb in my opinion. they just getting rid of non working vapor 4 and coloring them with special edition. people who are consider this should live under a cell tower.

    Diggin the Arctic Camo one but at $120, still way too overpriced for me.

    must be. Very nice looking case I would be all over if it did not reduce the signal, was compatable with VZW device and cost was about half what they are asking for it. :rolleyes:

    If they could fix their reception issues then great but even the Pro that I had gave me GPS issues.

    For an over $100 case it better not hinder the phone performance at all.

    That Urban camo looks pretty good to me though. Same way I really like and own an AR15. I like the non-glare tactical look.

    I like the Ion's (especially the khaki one) but at $60 plus $12 shipping, it just doesn't seem worth it to me.

    They've got em $10 off* thru 7/5, but the $12 for shipping is steep.

    *Use code: TacIon10off

    Ah, thanks for that. Maybe I'll consider it now but that shipping price just seems so ridiculous. I wonder why their shipping has to be FedEx and can't offer USPS too.

    Arctic Camo is sick. Not buying a spendy case though with the next iPhone not too far off in the future.

    Have a Vapor Pro, but was thinking that the Ion 4 (in Khaki) looked kind of interesting for a change.

    Great way to attract new "sheep" to fancy cases that render your phone utterly useless when installed.

    Wow, sold out in a hurry.

    Not that I was going to order one, but wow, they sold out fast. Still thinking about the Ion 4, however.

    You are referring to the metal ones only I presume. I wasn't aware the TPU polymer degraded signal.

    Against my better judgment I decided to deal with the ridiculous shipping cost and buy the khaki Ion case. We'll see how good it is when I get it (hopefully by the end of the week)

    So did they gather up all their original, all aluminum cases, refinish them all fancy schmancy, and resell them?
