Your iPhone is an elegant, beautifully designed piece of equipment. It deserves a case of equal elegance, and I finally found one. Actually, they have two models and they are available after their launch on Kickstarter, from Blacksmith Labs. Additionally, to celebrate their launch, for the rest of January, they are taking $20 off each holster during checkout with the coupon code:
If you like to wear your phone on your hip, as I do, you will love these cases. You will feel like a gunslinger from the old west thanks to the superior waxy leather in black or brown in two styles, slim with visible stitching, or wider with hidden stitches.
Plus, the belt clip is the most serious, robust, and beautiful such clip I've ever seen. The clip itself is made of solid metal with gold, chrome, or gunmetal finishes, and ratchets into just about any position.
The pouch is designed to hold a naked iPhone 5/5s, perhaps with a very minimal case. In fact, the Blacksmith Labs holster pouches are of such high quality, you will not want Apple to make a bigger iPhone, so you can continue using the holster indefinitely!
