    So, yeah... this escalated out of control. Wife stumbled down hall upon “the gathering” and she’s a little... mad says I have “problems”. She was supposed to be in bathtub and next thing I know she’s traipsing down hallway. ������������*♂️ I usually keep some in work car, on night stand, unused dresser drawer, computer bag, computer desk and in kitchen by coffee so she doesn’t typically think much of it... and yeah I’m pretty sure I’m grounded now ������������*♂️

    Wow that's an awful lot of cases. How do you ever use all them. No wonder your wife is upset. Rightly so. If I had that many cases and was hiding them from my significant other she'd have every right to be upset. I'm surprised she hasn't given you an ultimatum yet. Her or the cases. I certainly wouldn't be discussing it on the forums. Her anger is a signal you shouldn't be ignoring.

    Honestly if I were her I’d be upset too. ESP if you’re hiding this kinda thing from her. That’s a few hundred dollars sitting right there. I used to have a few myself but nothing like that. That’s overkill...

    It wasn’t that I was hiding it from her really lol I just wasn’t making the information easy to obtain. I use them all, carefully. She can be mad all she wants but she wouldn’t won’t ultimatum me; she truly doesn’t have a reason to. I still have all the bills, mortgage and car payments paid, kids and wife fed and everyone well taken care of. She hasn’t funded the project at all in the slightest.

    Element Case Recon. A fantastic case with perfect grip, looks, functionality and some of the best tactile buttons I've seen in a while.
    The only downside I can find is there is a light gap over the mute switch, lightning port and the case has lots of openings on the top and bottom to collect dirt and debris up against the sides of your phone. Also if you hold the case up to your ear and shake it like crazy you can hear the buttons rattle a little.
    I like this case so much I'm going to get the coyote color also.

    Oh how I wish for Apple to make a clear case in the style of the leather/silicone cases.
    I’d be on board if they could figure out a way to prevent it from yellowing the way all others seem to do. Otherwise, solid no.

    Lol. Same here. I have a couple of weaknesses like this. Wife loves shoes and backpacks. Same thing. It’s not like I’m emptying out the bank account to pay for cases. That would be bad. Wife doesn’t understand it and mostly just shakes her head at me.

    Totally agree. It’s become my go to case. I also see it lets dust in on the sides but it’s also very easy to get the phone in and out so taking it out to clean it is painless. Only thing I wish is that the back runner panel was carbon fiber instead of rubber. Not sure why they raised the prices of their CF cases for the X so much.

    I think it is a really hideous looking case. It may be very good in protecting the phone but it looks awfull and kills all the beauty with the IPhone X. One of the ugliest cases I seen for the X

    I personally find unsolicited relationship advice between forum members who barely know each other to be a bit harsh and unfair. You obviously know your situation much better than anybody else.
    If my wife discovered a couple hundred bucks in iPhone cases she might be rightfully irritated but, at the end of the day, I’m a very good provider for my family and reserve the right to enjoy a little bit of the money I work very hard for. It certainly would never warrant an ultimatum.

    I am a bit the opposite I keep buying and trying till I find a few I really like, then return if can or sell on eBay the ones I don’t.
    I am sitting with the caudabe sheath now as my only case, i do really like it, if I could buy locally would try some more but it’s weeks for delivery here and couldn’t be bothered atm.

    Amazon Australia started a week before Xmas promising good prices, but people are complaining that its still way cheaper to buy a lot of the same things from Amazon US. Hopefully that changes soon.

    Believe me there are worse hobby’s to have if that’s what you want to call it than a few hundred bucks in iPhone cases.
