PITAKA Fusion Weaving MagEZ Case 3 Review iPhone 14 Aramid Fiber Slim Phone Cases

Tuesday, October 25, 2022

Step up your game against drops with PITAKA's new slim phone cases for iPhone 14 series - MagEZ Case 3 and Fusion Weaving MagEZ Case 3 - made of 600D and 1500D aramid fibric respectively! 

The Fusion Weaving/ MagEZ Case 3 phone cases are super lightweight, weighing just 19 grams. They are made of TPU and 1500D aramid fibre (similar to Kevlar) blend which gives the cases a rubbery twill textured finish.
Aramid fibre is used in body armor applications due to being abrasion (scratch) resistant, heat resistant (has no melting point) and impact resistant. The aramid fiber construction is an attractive selling point for the PITAKA MagEZ Case 3 phone cases, especially for an expensive phone such as the iPhone 14, which along the iPhone 14 Pro are the cheaper 6.1 inch versions. 
The more expensive iPhone 14 versions are the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max - both 6.7 inches in size. The iPhone 14 Pro Max is nearly impossible to get now with waiting times extended to next month November. If you plan to buy the iPhone 14 Plus, you should probably do it sooner rather than later because Apple has cut down production according to reports.
The Fusion Weaving/ MagEZ Case 3 phone cases are equipped with a rear raised lip to protect the rear cameras. The only drawback with the raised lip is that it makes the case rock on a desk. The MagEZ phone case does not have matching cutouts for the speakers, charging port and side buttons and mute toggle switch. Instead, it has large open cutouts.

Potential deal breakers
  • Cases do not have a flat back due to the raised camera bezel
  • So thin and lightweight may put off some buyers
  • No UV resistance coating. This is important because aramid fiber has low resistance against ultraviolet light and will change color when exposed to the sun
  • No button protection 
  • Looks like a generic phone case not purposely designed for the iPhone 14 due to the large open cutouts and included stickers for fitment. 
  • Makes a plasticky noise (watch video)
  • No anchor points for lanyard
  • No reinforced corners
