Tactical phone cases are nothing new – ever since the first cell phones, people have sought to protect them in ruggedized cases. One of the most modern and stylish entries into this field comes from ElementCase with their Sector 5 Black Ops Elite iPhone 5/5S case. Retailing for $219.95 on their official website, the Sector 5 is not cheap. However, people who use tactical gear know that you get what you pay for. Moreover, the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite comes with a nice holster made from cordura fabric and even features MOLLE webbing on the back so you can attach it to your favorite plate carrier, backpack, etc. It will also snap closed in case you want to run a belt through it.
As for its design and quality, the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite iPhone 5/5S case is made from thin, CNC machined aluminum which is both light weight and strong. After getting the Sector 5 Black Ops out of the box, you need to install it on your phone. This is relatively simple and everything you need is in the box. First to be assembled around your iPhone is the aluminum frame, then you can clean the phone and adhere the back plate, which actually sticks on. The back of the case features a nifty clip to hang it on things but I can’t see someone paying the heft price point of this case and not using the included tactical holster with it. For those of your concerned not only with the physical security of your phone but also the information security, the box comes packaged with a privacy screen protector to keep prying eyes from getting good looks at what’s on your screen.
Actually using the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite phone case is effortless, as I have used rugged phone cases which add so much bulk to the phone its like the size of three iPhone 5s put back to back. With the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite, it almost feels like you have no phone protection while that being the exact opposite of the truth. The case is just so light – it is truly remarkable how strong it is for its weight.
Overall, the Sector 5 Black Ops Elite iPhone 5/5S case from ElementCase is an exceptional, if not expensive way to keep your iPhone safe from impacts. For people in a tactical occupation, who play action sports like airsoft, or simply like to protect their smartphones, you won’t be disappointed. You can find it at online retailers as well as the official ElementCase website.[easyreview title=”Sector 5 Black Ops Elite iPhone 5/5S Case Review Score” cat1title=”Overall Score (out of 5)” cat1detail=”” cat1rating=”5″ ] [button target=”_blank” style=”” class=”btn_green” link=”https://gamingshogun.com/gamingshogun-rating-system/”]Learn About Our Rating System[/button]
