    Here are some pictures of an Element Vapor Comp on my 4S. It's a new design, which doesn't have a negative impact on the signal and it's compatible with aftermarket cables and headphones. :)

    I think the cost is justified. It's a quality product that is CNC machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum and anodized, and it has laser-engraved graphics and stainless steel screws. It comes with a screen protector, a full-size micro fiber cloth, a suede back cover and a keyring micro speed wrench (with spare screws) which is made with the same materials and process as the case.

    It has free shipping, which couldn't have been any faster, IME. Element was sold out so I ordered on Amazon on Saturday morning and received it yesterday (Monday) via USPS.

    Very nice! I had the black one but returned it because I didn't like the fact that the polymer side wasn't flush against the phone and allowed dust and lint from my pocket to get in there. Element said they are working on a redesigned side. I do like the fact that it did not interfere with my signal.

    Just got my Vapor Comp Stealth in black. Fits and looks perfect. If I can find a camera I will post up some pics.

    Done!

    I REALLY like the fit. I even installed the back plate and the screen protector they provide. Both are also a perfect fit. Please ignore all the dust particles in the pictures. That damn sun shows everything! :)
    Happy Thanksgiving all!

    This just in! As much as I loved the look of the carbon fiber back plate, I had to remove. It was actually causing me to lose 2-3 bars of reception. I had no idea that it would be the culprit. Went back to my clear rear screen protector. May put one of my DecalGirls skins back on.

    I had a loss of bars with just the case. Also, after using for a while, it had scratched my metal band around the phone. Not terribly bad, but noticeable. :-(

    You lost bars with the Vapor Comp? I can see it scratching unfortunately. It rubs kind of harshly when sliding it on.

    Sure did. I was disappointed. Cool case tho! In areas where I had spotty coverage before, I had the no service message with that case.
