The Embrace attempts to solve a problem of metal band-style iPhone cases, which is the installation. Usually requiring a special tool, typical metal band cases are held together with screws. The Embrace has a thumb screw joining two hinged pieces. It's an interesting design, although the thumb screw looks a little unusual.
The case is made of anodized aluminum, which is lightweight and durable. The case has a rubberized liner which should aid in limiting interference with the iPhone's external antenna design. The case hinges open at the lower left corner for easy installation and removal.
TheEmbrace has cutouts for the lower ports, side controls, and button for the iPhone's power.
The Embrace comes in a number of colors and the company also sells back plates. Pricing starts out at $69-$119 with plates selling for $19.
