My favorite iPhone 5S case is the Element Case Solace we reviewed last month. (Read it.) It is sleek, refined, protective, and it looks fantastic. In keeping with their co-branding partnership with Ducati, they have now released the company has now released the Element Case Solace Ducati iPhone 5S. It has everything I love about the Solace and more.
As with the original Solace, this case uses a durable polycarbonate chassis with a soft touch finish. It offers a comfortable and secure grip, and it looks awesome. Once again, the top and bottom crowns are made from precision CNC machined T6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This offers strength and refinement while keeping the weight of the case down. The control buttons are also made from this light weight machined aluminum. As Element case notes, “the Solace is a protective case with an alluring design”. This version for the Ducati Collection goes even further.

- CNC machined aluminum crowns for light weight protection
- High impact polycarbonate chassis with Soft Touch coating for a smooth grip
- Slim ergonomic design
- Integrated aluminum buttons
- Soft-Tec Ducati Quick Draw Sleeve
I love the Element Case Solace, and I love the Element Case Solace Ducati even more. It is gorgeous and refined, protective but slim, attention-catching but not overly bold. The included Quick Draw Sleeve is a great extra; I only wish it also included the cradle/belt clip. That and the fact that the black polycarbonate captures and shows fingerprints are my only real criticisms. This is now my go-to iPhone case, and it will remain such for quite some time I expect.
