ION Factory Carbon Fiber Shell for Bold 9700

If you love Carbon Fiber then I must warn you this review is going to make you fall in love. Today we are reviewing the ION Factory Carbon Fiber Leather Shell for the BlackBerry Bold 9700. It’s a beautiful custom fitted leather shell, with stitched leather and a streak of carbon fiber running down the back. This Carbon Fiber shell from ION Factory features an enclosed bottom with a hole for the microphone. The entire case is wrapped around the phone leaving the sides and top accessible.

This case leaves the side and top exposed? Yes, it’s true the ION Factory Carbon Fiber case does leave the sides exposed, as well the top, however you never feel like your device is going to fall out. ION Factory did provide some protection for the top and sides with the leather outline (which you can see in the picture above). Keep in mind this case doesn’t have any sort of holster, therefore most of the time it will be in your hand or pocket.

Why this case? Some people (like myself) love Carbon Fiber. I think it just looks really sweet, and it gives you that racing feeling. The ION Factory shell is stitched together and it just feels like a well built case. Although it doesn’t snap or buckle your BlackBerry fully in, you never feel like its going to pop out of the top. I was always impressed on how well my device felt protected, and never had to worry when it got bumped around.
