4th Design Trigger Aluminum iPhone 5 Bumper Case Review

4th Design's Blade 5 for the iPhone 5 was arguably a shaky new iteration of the once notorious Blade bumper for the first generation iPhone 4. We thought 4th Design later redeemed itself with the release of the T-type 3, a clean-cut aluminum bumper with a big emphasis on minimalist styling. And now, it appears as though the company has lost all of its marbles by releasing yet another aluminum machined bumper case called the Trigger. Forget about the words like 'simplistic' and 'Apple-esque' - the Trigger is one gaudy-looking, overly masculine piece of an outdoorsy fashion statement of sorts. Can it punch nails into wood? Does it open up beer bottles and turn into brass knuckles? You're about to find out in our full review down below!

4th Design T-type 3 Aluminum iPhone 5 Bumper Case Review

Premium cases made out of the sought after 13th element can end up costing you a small fortune, and for that exact reason these type of accessories must provoke excellence. We weren't entirely thrilled with how 4th Design's Blade 5 bumper case for the iPhone 5 turned out compared to its predecessor. Fortunately, 4th Design is back with another offering and this time it's playing it simple. Or should we say safe? Because the new T-type 3 is the same T-type bumper case we've reviewed for the iPhone 4S apart from a few design enhancements and careful polishing. Unlike the Blade 5, the T-type 3 bumper brings back the likable creature comforts in a minimalist design. Our full review awaits!

Element Case Sector 5 Aluminum iPhone 5 Case Review

In the past, we have put numerous aluminum machined iPhone, iPod touch and even iPad cases thru testing. One case company stood out like a white knight in shining armor. Element Case is considered by many including us to be the best of the best when considering a case made from the 13th element. Elite cases like the Vapor Pro and Vapor Comp were truly a pair of groundbreaking offerings in the world of high-end protective iPhone accessories. Element Case went above and beyond with its latest hardcore case for the iPhone 5. The Sector 5 is an aluminum bumper-style case that tops off the amazingly curvy Draco 5 with its complexity and pure unadulterated awesomeness. If you were to tell us it was from another dimension, we'd believe you. So lock n' load, it's gonna be a bumpy in-depth review!

4th Design Blade 5 Aluminum iPhone 5 Bumper Review

Tiger Design, now called 4th Design, struck gold when it first released the Blade bumper for the iPhone 4. The Blade was a one-of-a-kind CNC machined metal bumper that felt and looked like a well oiled weapon more than the simple protective accessory it really was behind all the tough metal armor. And that's a case in point that Korean design can be unique. 4th Design's newly released Blade 5 is yet another aluminum bumper continuation of epic street cred proportions. It is a heat seeking missile homing in on iPhone 5 users and their deep pockets. We managed to get our hands on the Blade 5 before its official debut, and boy we so excited. So be sure to check out the full in-depth review down below to see how it stacks up against the Japanese Draco 5 rival.

E13ctron S5 iPhone 5 Aluminum Bumper Case Review

We have very fond memories of E13ctron's S4 bumper case. The S4 was the first two-tone color customizable aluminum bumper that was unique and visually quenching. It was exactly two years ago when we gave E13ctron's first ever iPhone case a review, and it was one of the few unique aluminum machined bumpers to received our Editors' Choice award. But since then, things have changed. The bar is much higher than it ever was. The S5 is E13ctron's latest iPhone 5 aluminum Bumper-style case to feature a new snap-in design. Can E13ctron's new S5 throw some punches at its fearsome competition? Catch the full review to find out!

Draco 5 iPhone 5 Aluminum Bumper Case Review

Another number, another case. Draco Design blew us all away with the Draco 4 back when we first got our hands on the Japanese inspired work of art for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Formally known as Deff Japan in Asia, Draco Design is the North American brand name that has made quite a name for itself. The most sought-after aluminum bumper case for the iPhone is back, and it desperately wants to add exotic style to Apple's thinner and stealthier iPhone 5. The Draco 5 is the latest and greatest premium aluminum designed bumper to be reanimated and precisely tuned for reception performance. Everything you need to know about this unusual iPhone 5 bumper case is in our in-depth review right after the jump!
