Crimson says this is the world’s most advanced aluminum frame case on the market and who am I to argue? Everyone seems to say their product is the World’s Frist, World’s Best, World’s Greatest , etc, etc, etc so hey here’s another one to add to the list. I can say it looks cool and it’s actually inexpensive at $45 and you can get it in Red, Black or Silver.
Crimson USA today unveiled the market’s most advanced Aluminum Frame Case (AFC) for the iPhone 5. The Crimson AFC enhances the style of the iPhone 5, while offering the best protection against the elements – whether from the environment, drops or everyday abuse. The new Crimson AFC builds upon the successful AFC product line for iPhone 4/4s, and was redesigned and improved to match the new specifications of the iPhone 5.
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.

- Aircraft-grade anodized aluminum frame case with stainless steel Allen head screws
- New engineering-grade elastomer corner guards
