Pitaka MagCase for iPhone Review: Ultra-strong Paper Thin Luxury Aramid Case

Aramid is used in Body Armor and in the luxurious Pitaka MagCase for iPhones.

The Pitaka MagCase is a case for your iPhone that actually improves your device. Apple should just integrate the Pitaka MagCase, made from Aramid fibers, as the back panel of the iPhone. Good thing this high-end protective case for the iPhone is only 0.65mm thin and 12g light. It does not add any bulk to my iPhone 7 Plus. Instead, it gives it an extremely pleasant to touch surface.

Dupont's Kevlar is the best known Aramid fiber and used in body armor, supercars and other high-tech fields. Pitaka says that the Aramid case is 5x stronger than metal. Because its not metal, there is no interference with Wi-fi, wireless charging or mobile reception. The Pitaka Aramid case is not bulletproof as its too thin for that application. The coating is extremely scratch resistant but grippy. You can feel the texture of the Aramid fibers.

Pitaka achieves this great surface with proprietary vacuum forming technology. This approach ensures that the original characteristics of the material remain with the product and gives Pitaka cases a special touch will make your phone pleasurable to hold.

Pitaka integrated invisible metal plates inside the MagCase to make it work with magnetic mounts including the Pitaka magnetic car mount. The Pitaka MagCase fits like a glove on my iPhone.

There is no wiggling and the holes for the buttons are exact. Pitaka actually leaves a lot of room around them and also the speaker area and lightning port are uncovered. If they would be covered, there would be no way of removing the case again. To protect the camera, the case has raised edges around the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera lens.

To get the case off, you have to follow a certain procedure. You need to start with the left bottom corner, then you pull the top left corner down. I have used the Pitaka case now for over a week. There is no single scratch on the case.

The Aramid iPhone case I tested retails for about $47.99 on the Pitaka online shop and on amazon.com. There are several color options available. The test case is black/grey and the company bundles a free tempered glass screen protector with the case. The price is higher than many other cases for the iPhone, but if you want a high-tech case that looks great and feels awesome to hold, invest in a Pitaka case.

Thanks to my contact at Pitaka, you can save 10% on any purchase on the Pitaka online shop with the promo code HelloPITAKA. The Pitaka MagCase is available for Apple iPhones and select Android devices. Depending on the case, you might either find the best deal for a Pitaka case on amazon.com or the Pitika online shop in combination with the promo code.

What is Aramid?

Aramid is short for “aromatic polyamide”. It is a class of man-made strong synthetic fibers with high performance. They were originally developed for and used in aerospace or military applications. Molecules of those fibers are characterized by relatively rigid polymer chains. These molecules are linked by strong hydrogen bonds that transfer mechanical stress very efficiently, making it possible to use chains of relatively low molecular weight. Aramid fiber is thinner than the average of human hair, and it has a distinctive yellow color. It can be weaved and colored for different patterns.
