The new collection allows Apple consumers to keep the latest iPhone devices safe and secure without compromising style. The standout cases join a wide selection of user-friendly XtremeMac products that recently premiered at the prestigious IFA trade show in Berlin and that will be available in the U.S. in September 2012.

Highlights of the collection include a first-of-its-kind armband-style iPhone device case with LED lights to protect active wearers while running, walking or biking at night; an integrated viewing stand-styled case for watching videos or FaceTime® applications; and vibrant new colors and designs.

The high-performance, lightweight XtremeMac Sportwrap™ LED is an armband-styled case designed for the active user. Made of technologically advanced moisture wicking mesh, the adjustable armband fits most arm sizes and helps protect the iPhone device from moisture while keeping it securely in place while you’re moving. Integrated LED lights provide safety while running, walking or biking at night. The unique two-piece design allows for users to separate the electronic components from the arm band to allow for easy cleaning.
