iPhone case made of aramid is light as paper but stronger than steel


You’ve no doubt heard of carbon fiber, but have you heard of aramid? How about kevlar? Kevlar is a trade name for aramid fibers which is short for “aromatic polyamide”. They are lightweight fibers with exceptional strength and thermal stability, making this material a perfect choice for an iPhone case like these new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus cases from Pitaka.

The cases are very thin and weigh less than 10g while remaining scratch resistant and grippy.

They are available in several colors including the ones you see here.

Unlike some metal phone cases, the aramid cases cause no interference to WiFi, GPS or your cellular signal.

The Pitaka aramid cases are priced at $47.99 for the iPhone 7 version and $49.99 for the iPhone 7 Plus version. For more info visit ipitaka.com and order one at a discount through Amazon. Also look for our review coming soon.

    Their website has a good article on carbon fiber and aramid fiber cases vs signal attenuation. They know what they are doing.
