  • leather duty belt case for smartphone ?

    Does anybody know where to buy decent leather pouches for your duty belt for smart phones? I have seen a few of those cases but it seems that most of them were designed for smaller phones, but not for the newer models. And how do you guys wear your phone on your belt? Just in a duty belt pouch, or still with an additional otterbox or leather wallet around it ? Or not on your duty belt at all ?

    I usually find an otter box or other heavy duty plastic clip type system for my smart phone and really do not look for the leather option. Outside of aesthetics there is nothing that leather offers that is not better done by a good high impact resistant plastic. I would just put it in your front shirt pocket and be done with it. Outside of doing a custom case there are no real options for what you want.

      I searched far and wide for a duty belt pouch when i got my iphone 6sPlus, and the only payable and budgetfriendly solution i found was a NiteIze product: http://www.niteize.com/collection/mo...ccessories.asp it may bot be leather but it is durable and cheap... they have different models and sizes as well, so there should be something for everybody...

      otherwise i think you need to find a leatherworker that can make custom work for you...

        I found one a while back, it's not super heavy duty, but it does the job. Basket weave too. The magnet that keeps it closed is pretty strong, I've had to run quite a bit and it hasn't gone flying. I have a Samsung Galaxy note, but I bought the iPhone 6 Plus version and it fits it just fine, with extra room I can fit a note pad in there too, it even has a pen holder.

          I don't wear my big Note 3 on may duty belt, I wear it in front shirt pocket so the camera lens is always peaking out. That way people will be used to it if I start recording. I've yet to have anyone ask "are you recording?" Works OK as body cam, tends to point out to one side but I could fix that with little foam.

          From that carry spot I can also run a charging cable to a power-brick in case I want to run the recorder 12+ hours and take 20gigs of video.

          Another reason I don't like belt carry for my PERSONAL and EXPENSIVE phone is possible damage/snatching.

          Don't stick to specially stores for over priced stuff. Unless you are wrestling violent subjects in gravel pits 2x a day, and can't get any resupply for 6months, all this cheap stuff will be more than adequate.

          Lots of options. What you want is a "holster" not a "case".http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from...+black&_sop=15

          Rockin' duty belt for under $4! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Outdoor-Wood...3D361849129403

          But here are some good and cheap belt carry options. Is $1.99 cheap enough? Be good for modding for covert body-cam but I haven't gotten around to it. I like these because I can carry phone, power brick, cords, pens, notepad, etc all in one easy to grab unit. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tactical-Mol...3D381678861963

          Here is a nice roomy excellent quality similar that holds two phones and brick. http://www.ebay.com/itm/201650376817...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

          Here is how I normally carry a big phone, clipped on collar of t-shirt. I've ripped the clip off of 3 of these doing belt carry.....so now I've got an option of full cover without the bulky clip, and some extra units to butcher and mod for diff carry. Little Frog Lube helps in slide out easy. Seems equal to $40 Otter Box. http://www.ebay.com/itm/231944401577...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

                  Because there may be other members of the forum who may have the same question about pouches for their smart phone. So they don’t have go through the pages like I did.
