We’ve put together a list of some of the best options for cases that feature either carbon fiber or aramid fiber designs, all of which will fit Apple’s newest iPhones. Each of the cases are available to buy now as well.
So let’s get into it.
The best carbon fiber cases for iPhone 11 in 2019
This case from PITAKA features an aramid fiber design, which is most often used for military materials, body armor, and in other areas like airplanes, cars, and more. The case also features built-in metal plates, which support PITAKA’s in-car holder, too. The PITAKA aramid fiber case also supports wireless charging for good measure.
The case is super thin, measuring in at 0.03 inches and it weighs only 0.53oz, so it won’t be adding any major bulk to your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. The case features a protective three-layer coating and a manual polishing, which PITAKA says it results in the “surface” being “as soft as a baby’s skin”, while it’s also scratch-, dust-, and dirt-resistant.
The case also has raised lips to protect the display and the cameras. It’s available to buy now.
The carbon fiber case from Kitoo is designed to be soft to the touch and comfortable to hold for extended daily use. It supports wireless charging, offers easy access to buttons and ports, and has raised edges to protect the cameras and display. It covers the back and sides of the phone, as expected.
Positive marks for the case are its solid fit on the phone of choice (Kitoo’s option is also available for a range of Android handsets), how lightweight it is, and the solid build quality. The case is also given top marks for its protective design.
It’s another slim profile case, weighing in at only 2.4 ounces. And it comes in various color options: Red, Black, and “Rosegold”. It’s available to buy now.
This Karbon case from Evutec features aramid fiber, which the company says is “5 times as strong as steel of the same weight”. As mentioned earlier, this is the same material used for body armor. The case is lightweight and measures in at just 0.7mm thin. But with it being so thin, its drop rating isn’t as high as some heavy duty cases, despite its design. Evutec says it will protect your phone from a drop of two feet.
The Evutec Karbon case supports wireless charging and has raised edges to protect the display and cameras. It does not boast any type of metal insert built into the case.
It’s available to buy now.
This shockproof case from Nicexx has been drop tested to protect your iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max from a height of 12 feet. It also supports wireless charging, and offers full body coverage (but it doesn’t include a screen protector, as most cases do not). It has full port and button access, and the raised edges help protect the display and cameras.
This case is available in Black, Gold, and “Rosegold”. You can buy it right now.
This is a carbon fiber case that’s shockproof, able to survive falls up to 10 feet thanks to exceeding the “Military Grade Drop Test standards, MIL-STD-810G”. The raised lips will protect your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro’s display and cameras, and the case itself is also scratch-resistant.
One of the things that this case offers that the others don’t is an integrated front-facing audio channel. This will actually amplify sound and redirect it to the front of the phone for a “better surround sound experience”.
The case also features a soft “rubber bubble pattern lining”, which works to help disperse shock if the phone is dropped, adding a bit more protection. It also boasts a hard polycarbonate shell.
The Defense Lux Series from X-Doria is available now. It’s also available in a leather option.
So, there’s a list of some of the best carbon fiber cases you can get for your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. If you have any other recommendations, please let us know in the comments below!
