    iPhone 5 Cellhelmet cases will start shipping on 12/31/12. $50 for a TPU case is kind of steep considering many that are made in China are only $5, but this one is made in the USA and it includes accidental damage coverage (cracked screens only).

    What do you guys think?

    No. The name itself reminds of "Dark Helmet" from Space Balls. Oh how I wish Mel Brooks would make just one blockbuster parody movie. Maybe something on Silicon Valley!

    To be truly honest I am really liking my plain jane black speck flip that was under $21 on Amazon.

    I do wonder how many hoops one would have to go through to get them pay off on a damaged screen with the Dark Helmet errr, Cellhelmet case.

    It's hard tell how substantial the case is from the picture. How do you think they will handle damage claims? (Rhetorical)

    I don't know how long it will take, but if I didn't have AppleCare+, which also does replacements for $50, and I got this case, I'd rather spend $200 and get it repaired/replaced by Apple the same day than wait for it to be fixed and shipped back. I'm guessing it will take a couple weeks.

    Price is not only outrageous but ridiculous as well, this is not worth 50 cents to make, made in the US? What a joke! No wonder we can't maintain manufacturing in this country!

    IMHO whoever spends 50 bucks on a cheap piece of plastic, then the helmet should be worn by the buyer lol

    Correction to the post - they cover all damages except for water and scratches in the aluminum.

    I'm sorry, I'm not making fun of you, I'm just amazed at the outrageous price, if you like it, then that's all that matters :)

    They cover cracked screens, and that explains the high cost of the case.

    I am a good sport LOL
    But I paid 39.95 as much as I paid for a case at AT&T at release date (Speck)
    But yes pricy but there are cases what cost much more ...
    How about when once it's here I get son to test it. I come back and tell ya what I think it is worth ?
