The new collection allows Apple consumers to keep the latest iPhone devices safe and secure without compromising style. The standout cases join a wide selection of user-friendly XtremeMac products that recently premiered at the prestigious IFA trade show in Berlin and that will be available in the U.S. in September 2012.

Highlights of the collection include a first-of-its-kind armband-style iPhone device case with LED lights to protect active wearers while running, walking or biking at night; an integrated viewing stand-styled case for watching videos or FaceTime® applications; and vibrant new colors and designs.

The high-performance, lightweight XtremeMac Sportwrap™ LED is an armband-styled case designed for the active user. Made of technologically advanced moisture wicking mesh, the adjustable armband fits most arm sizes and helps protect the iPhone device from moisture while keeping it securely in place while you’re moving. Integrated LED lights provide safety while running, walking or biking at night. The unique two-piece design allows for users to separate the electronic components from the arm band to allow for easy cleaning.

  • Easy access to device controls with clear screen cover.
  • Lightweight design provides comfortable fit

The XtremeMac Microshield™ Stand is an innovative new design that transforms the case into a sturdy viewing stand for your device.

Made of hard durable plastic, the case effectively protects your iPhone device from scratches, dust and dirt.

Summary of features:

iPhone fans preferring a slightly flashier style will gravitate toward the XtremeMac Microshield Fade case. Available in a large variety of colors, this creatively styled case features the latest gradient-color trend with the primary color gradually fading into an array of complementary hues.

  • Full access to switches and jacks
  • Translucent case allows device logo to take center stage
