iPhone4 Billet Aluminum Case

Considering these anodized iPhone 4 aluminum cases for an early release next year. Holds together with allen bolts and protects the inside with an abs spacer. A few will be available in an illest colorway for the opening of the illest store in Los Angeles.

** Note: Carbon back is not part of the case.

    iPhone’s are overrated. Get off Apple’s dick.

    Reminds me of the cool bits I would buy for my HPI RC car back when.

  4. ronniehawaii

    OHH MAN! IM SOO EXCITED! When are you guys opening the illest store? No, better yet, WHEN ARE THE NEW BIKES RELEASING!?!?

  5. Chris

    When will these drop?!?!
    And will they be available online??

  6. Chris

    Looks great!

    Would be good if you started to do cases for ipod touch too.

  7. HNL2LAX

    very nice!

    Looks like the knock off version of the carbon vapor.

      The vapor case is a completely different design although it is quite sexy. We did not develop this case, we’ve just partnered with a local company who made it. Also one thing to note.. the carbon back isn’t part of the case. Only the casing itself.

    make a droid x version :)
    these ipod4 cases are ill as fuck

  10. EastBayAE86

    sick. I would pick up a pink/cf for sure.

    I’ve heard reviews on aluminum cases for the iPhone4 can make the “problematic” reception worse than before. While I love the design of this case and am lusting for one right now, especially an illest version, I’d rather have reception. Have you noticed any problems with reception while using the case so far?

    • Fatlace

      Its exactly why we’re testing it out. There is a spacer between the phone that is made out of abs plastic so it doesnt give you reception problems but definitely want to make sure its the right fit before producing these.

      • Derek

        Thanks for looking into that existing problem and hoping that it all works out.

        If you could use another tester in a different area let me know cause I’d be stoked to help out!

        • Lyell

          I have the Vapor 4 case and that thing destroys my reception. I loose at least 1 bar on both Cell signal and wifi. If this case doesn’t do that I’ll ditch my Vapor for this one. I love the aluminum style and feel.

    I wish you guys would whip up some 3 series cases! someof us ain’t baller enough for a 4G!

    3GS reppin’ TID!

  13. Do a case for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S (The captivate)!

    This is super nice though. Makes me want to go back to an iPhone 4.

  14. wyn

    I have the vapor too and yes it kills my reception.. .a lot! feels great, provides great protection but not worth the loss of reception. I am thinking this will be the same thing. I like the design of this one, but I would rather have the screws showing on the back of the phone rather than the front. Also, the carbon fiber backing should be an added option. And more colors.

    • Fatlace

      Tons of colors but we want our own. Definitely thinking the same on the screws for the back. This is still in sample mode and we’ve found somethings that need improvement. Thanks for your feedback.

    • Derek

      couple other suggestions if you have the capacity to make any changes to the case before dropping a final version, that is if the manufacture is open to suggestions…

      - make the syncing/power port large enough to accept a few different versions of connectors rather than just cable coming with the iPhone.

      - make the headphone port large enough to accept a varying versions of headphones jacks, not necessarily restricted to the slim headphone jacks.

      - and i agree, have the screws in the back rather than front it possible

  15. Can’t wait for them to come out!

  16. Hfcivic

    Please make something for android. It would be much appreciated

  17. crazy how something so simple can look so awesome

  18. Mark Razmandi

    ya…lets get back to cars, kthnxbai.

  19. I want an iPhone 4 just for this case

  20. I’ll be all over this if the headphone jack hole is nice and large to accept headphones other than slim apple type :)

  21. Kev Zenki

    Def want this for my iphone 4 when will it be up for sale?

  22. Justin

    Carbon back should DEFINITELY come with or at least be an option.

  23. lolololol

    looks different than atomic? what brand is this?

  24. Rene garcia

    I want one of these
