If you owned an iPhone 5 and you wanted to get on of those rugged Optrix cases, you were basically out of luck as they were only available for the iPhone 4 / 4s models. Well, that’s no longer the case as Optrix today announced the new XD5 for the iPhone 5. It offers the same protection and features as the old model, but with some improvements. The new XD5 is thinner, lighter, and stronger and now offers a second door to access the charging port and headphone jack without needing to remove the case. It also now features an interchangeable lens system as well.

They are displaying the new XD5 at CES which will retail for $129.95 and is available for pre-order now.
