Crimson Aluminum Frame Case for iPhone 5

The Crimson AFC showcases the beautiful design of the iPhone 5, while offering premium protection through a sleek, form-fitting case. The Crimson AFC features two frames that easily fasten together at the four corners to seamlessly cover, but not conceal the faces, functions or antennas, of the iPhone 5. The Crimson AFC features:

  • CNC machined aircraft-grade aluminum for strength, durability and ultimate protection.
  • Fastened elastomer corner guards engineered for shock absorption to protect the iPhone 5 from drops, dings and unexpected encounters.
  • Form-fitting design to amplify the iPhone 5's sleek lines and maintain accessibility to all buttons and ports – while never hampering the reception of the iPhone's antennas.
  • Lightweight (less than 20 grams) and ergonomic construction that offers easy handling, plus the ability for the iPhone 5 to stand on any of its sides – perfect for photography, video viewing and FaceTime.

What's Included with the AFC

  • Aircraft-grade anodized aluminum frame case with stainless steel Allen head screws
  • New engineering-grade elastomer corner guards
  • Two (2) spare stainless steel Allen head screws
  • Allen driver for installation
  • Microfiber cleaning cloth
  • Installation instructions
  • Bonus: Each AFC includes a front Crimson Film Surface Protector

"The Crimson AFC is designed to serve both the protection and style needs of iPhone 5 owners without sacrificing capabilities in either area," said Ben Yang, CEO of Crimson. "iPhone 5 owners want a case that offers maximum protection with a contemporary look and cool factor that is symbiotic with the phone itself."

Availability and Pricing

The Crimson AFC for iPhone 5 (Black, Red, Silver) is available now for purchase at the Crimson Online Store (www.crimsoncase.com) for $44.95 (U.S. MSRP).
