Four months after reviewing the Incipio DualPro (our first iPhone 5 case review!), we’re reviewing it’s even more attractive brother. The DualPro CF for iPhone 5 is elegantly dressed in carbon fiber. It still features the super protective and durable body with a perfectly snug fit for iPhone.
The Incipio DualPro CF is an extra protective two-piece case. It includes a rubbery silicone inner shell that covers the back, sides, and a bit of iPhone’s face, then there’s a hard outer shell that just pops on top. The outer shell, which Incipio calls rigid plextonium, has a superb carbon fiber finish with a real nice shimmer to it.
The two layer design provides iPhone with impact resistant protection. The corners are all very well covered and Incipio did a great job protecting the screen. As if that wasn’t enough, they include a free screen protector so that the DualPro can offer all-around protection. They also include a microfiber cloth, screen protector applicator card, and a foldable stand for watching videos or facetiming on iPhone. Incipio also provides an impressive lifetime guarantee on the DualPro.
There are rubberized button overlays for the lock and volume buttons that are easy and comfortable to use. The port cutouts are all rubberized, so they can stretch if necessary.
Incipio’s DualPro CF isn’t the sleekest case out there, but it provides a ton of protection with a suave appearance and a comfortable form factor. The Incipio DualPro CF is available in two carbon fiber finishes, black or grey(shown). Currently, it’s only available for $34.99 on Incipio.com, but it could easily sell for half that once it hits Amazon.
