    Ok, I keep putting it off but gonna order the Mous now. My wife needs a new case for her 8plus as she has a dark red Otterbox statement from Apple.

    She likes the shell of the mouse. Im still undecided which to get as the CF will likely show fingerprints but the wood will likely be slick. I’m afraid the phone will be too wide. Keep hoping someone else would pick it up so I could ask but may have to try myself. The customer service thread scares me.

    I do want that small vent mount as I need a place for my Xr while driving. My wife wants one too for her 8plus.

    Is there a better place to buy Mous than Mous direct? For easier returns?

    Probably. Mobile tech reviewer says the wood ones were slick. Yeah the buy one 50 off was why I was gonna move since my wife needs a case.

    Hmm, and now reading on reddit and on Twitter some think dbrand is about to announce the grip and prizm....sigh.

    Dbrand has been sending QRcodes out in packages and apparently there are 9 different ones and once everyone finds them all they will release the grip and prizm ads.

    Dang it....do i hold out?

    My Speck cases from Cyber Monday came yesterday (clear plus glitter). Loving them! They are a royal pain in the ass to change out but thankfully I don’t do it often.

    Oops, I referred to the wrong name. That said, mine is very much hunter green to my eyes, even if they named it Forest Green, at least on the front and back. The rigid shell for the phone looks forest green. I still like the color, and it matches my Forest Green Apple Watch band very well.

    I typically hold the phone in my left hand and use the screen with my right. The case is sized well for me for my usage, either with the flap open or folded back. With the flap open, the notch of flap fits well between my thumb and index finger.

    I'm also liking that I can keep my office access card with my phone, eliminating a lanyard to wear.

    Just the heads up, it's PU leather. I had my suspicions after looking at the price.

    Element cases have arrived. Initially impressions are very impressive. I have had several element case cases over the years, but have not been impressed with their more recent offerings. The Enigma feels like a true Element Case and I love the the Rally much more than my previously owned Rev.

    The Rally has great grip, some of the best I've seen in any case. The colors really pop and look great with the white iPhone. The back is very clear, but does seem to be very prone to scratches. Fit and finish is perfect and no effect on my iCarez 2.5 screen cover.

    The Enigma looks and feels great, although I wish the blue was more... Blue. The front aluminum piece is brighter than the sides and back and I wish the whole case was that color. Going out to the field today so rocking the Rally, and will try the Enigma on this week. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Does the Enigma pop in or do you need to remove screws?

    After seeing you pictures I wish I had ordered. They look fantastic.

    Is there any padding on the inside buttons of the Enigman? Are the buttons metal?

    The last Black-Ops element case I owned had sharp metal buttons on the inside and I never used it.

    I'm 99% sure it screws in.
