I know a lot of people will think I’m crazy to pay $100 usd for a case but the quality of this case is amazing. Since it’s aluminum, it takes away the wireless charging but I never use it anyways since it’s so slow to charge. Swapped out my smart battery case for this and it feels like a new high end phone again. Case is very snug which makes it hard to take off but all is good. Camera holes also fits the X perfectly since it’s made for both the X/XS. Props to Rimowa for this!

If their case is anything like their luggage then I’ll have no problem with the price.

Interesting...I'd be more worried about how it might affect cell reception more than if it prevents wireless charging.

Which parts of it are made of TPU? There are metal cases that have no cushioning material and obviously more for looks, but that wouldn't be in character for a 120-year old luggage company.

As far as the value proposition, that's subjective and if it makes you happy, then it's worth it.

The device accessory business can be quite lucrative, which is why it's saturated. A lot of people don't think twice about paying $40 at a retail store for a piece of injection molded plastic that probably doesn't cost more than $1 to produce, so it's all questionable.

The back is made from an exact sheet of aluminum from their luggages with the sides made of TPU. The TPU is quite stiff and when the case is on, there’s only a very slight lip (unlike the official Apple cases). What I really like about it is that it adds premium quality without bulk weight.
