It might seem a bit crazy to pair fine wood with aluminum for an iPhone 6 accessory, but that’s definitely not true in this case. Vessel’s Wood Series for iPhone 6 is a very interesting approach to a bumper, or case if you’d like to call it that. I’m usually a case-less kind of guy, but there’s something about the Wood Series that seems to be a happy medium…

This little guy may not serve as the greatest protection against the world, but it keeps your iPhone partially covered and slim, while bringing some other elements to the table. The Wood Series combines a top and bottom bumper made from solid aluminum and sides crafted from oak or walnut that are finished in brushed oil. Sure, we’ve seen many “high-end” bumpers out there, but this one definitely stands out in my opinion.

Inside of the box, you’ll find the Wood Series bumper of course, along with a small tool for installation that can easily be attached to a key ring for removal on-the-go. We also have a very unique serial number certificate plate (see video), a quick start guide, two extra screws, and a Vesel-branded microfiber cloth.

As you would expect, the case is rather simple to install. First, you’ll need to use the included tool to unscrew the top two corners of the case. After that, simply slide in the iPhone 6 and put the bumper back together.

This case is definitely designed for the minimalist. If you were a fan of the 0.3mm Caudabe case we showed off a while back, chances are you’ll love this one. It’s definitely not for everyone, but such a combination of materials can certainly be appreciated by most people.

I haven’t used the Wood Series long enough to tell you how it holds up over time, but over the past couple of weeks it has been very solid. Vesel’s Wood Series for iPhone 6 is available in four different combinations which are all variations of the Frozen Titanium Gray and Frozen Brilliant Silver top aluminum colors and either walnut or oak wood for the sides.

Vesel’s Wood Series can be a bit pricey coming in around $193, but its pricing is similar to competitor cases from Draco and Element Case so it wasn’t much of a surprise for myself.
