A very capable unit that holds my iPhone 4S with the Otter Case on the phone, although it is a tight fit. The Velcro strap does get mixed up with the Red Oxx tag that hangs right below the strap, but after a short time, you learn the difference by touch.
The clip that holds the case onto your belt is rugged and withstands quite a bit of abuse. The craftsmanship is a wee bit lower than that of other Red Oxx items I've encountered, but is still a very good case. Overall, this case should easily outlast the phone which it carries, and I would certainly purchase another case like it from Red Oxx.

Brilliant case and it works well with my iPhone 4 in its Lifeproof Case. One change I'd make would be to rivet the strap near the bottom of the case interior. That way the strap end wouldn't catch on the port cover on my Lifeproof when I carry it facing in. No worries though. The Lifeproof Case is intended to be carried facing out in teir factory holster, which is much more expensive and less functional. I have a Nutshell leather case too but use my Red Oxx.

The spring clip on this case is the best available. I was in Italy for two weeks and never worried about the legendary pickpockets pulling this one off my belt. The phone is easily accessed by a quick pull of the Velcro strap. The only quibble I have is that with my Droid Incredible 2, the hooks on the Velcro hit the RedOxx label and have pulled threads, obscuring it. It would have been nicer to have the label on the strap rather than the holster.

Trust Red Oxx to make the perfect phone holster. Like all RO stuff, this holster is built tough and with simplicity in mind. The belt clip is sufficiently strong and works well on wider work belts. The completely adjustable velcro strap is a very nice feature that allows the case to accommodate a variety of smartphones.
My only minor issue with the design is that I sometimes grab the RO tag, instead of the velcro strap, when attempting to unholster the phone. This is easily overcome with a simple reposition of the velcro strap.
As a military officer that was tired of phone holsters that were just too wimpy to survive in more demanding environments, this holster just gets the job done.

Excellent quality - built to last!

The holder is great, it fits on the outside of my purse and I don't have to try and find the phone in my purse when it rings. Also handy to get out to check traffic

I'm a big guy who has broken or scrubbed off a lot of "high-end" carry cases off my belt getting in or out of cars (taxis in far away places tend to be small) or sitting down into a conference room chair. Typically your phone is left behind in the street with the case. The steel clip on this thing is bullet proof and it comes off the belt nicely when it's time to let go of the world. The strap was a tad long for my iphone but easy enough to adjust. I want some for my business and I guess the only option we have for name/logo is the strap which actually might work well since it is removable/interchangeable - we have multiple entities.

Will this hold your smartphone? Yes. But it does it without the usual Red Oxx elegance and design finesse. The case is made out of industrial strength strapping, not even the soft stuff that is used on bags. The corners are rough and it doesn't hold the phone so much as scare it into staying in place. I'd say it needs another revision.

I was looking for an iPhone case with a strong clip, making it easier when going through TSA security at airports.
Good: telephone fit well; clip fit a wide varity of belt widths and I didn't have any problems with the holster coming off.
Bad: The velcro strap on the inside of the case would hit against the telephone making it hard to get the telephone out of the holster; there were rough edges on the holster that would rub and scratch my arm; it hung too low, making it hard to get into my rear pants pocket.
By Arthur Greenwald, Los Angeles, May 3, 2012
I'm a big fan of Red Oxx products but this phone holster is a rare exception. Although well-made it's poorly-designed. The flexible velcro strap is awkward and snags and tangles each time the phone is removed. The belt clip is also too flexible and several times slipped off my belt as I tried to remove the phone.

Cool phone case, very well made.

Disappointed that it doesn't fit my Droid comfortably. I can squeeze it in but to answer the phone, I'd have to dig it out of the case. Bummer.
Rather than return it (a $20 item where the return postage would probably have been at least $3) I gave it to my son for his (old) Razr.
By Dave, Arlington VA, April 3, 2011
A good alternative to the Otterbox Defender that I have used for the iPhone 4. That case is very protective but adds bulk and is kind of grippy, and the holster setup is kind of bulky.
Lately, I've been using the FLIP and a low-profile aCase Superleggara that's a hard composite and it's perfect. The FLIP keeps it secure and the iPhone is easy to pull out and return to the holster.

I just got a new flip phone and was looking for a quality "Made in the USA" case. THIS IS IT!! The clip holds securely where ever I clip it, and it holds my phone securely what ever I am doing. My phone also fits perfectly in the case. Thanks for making a great quality product, and making it HERE!

I have a first generation Apple I-Phone that fits this in this case. It is as if it was designed for this phone. The phone stays in the case snugly. Most "smart phones" are about the same size as the I-Phones and may fit also.

I'm a truck driver and with my old phone case when I climb in and out of my truck the case would slide of my belt. So I needed a case that would NOT come off my belt. This case does just that,if you look at the pictures you'll see it has a sturdy metal clip with a flared end,same as many police departments use. I've been using it for about a month now and I love it. Satisfied customer

A smartphone holster? Listen as we make our case for a SmartCase.
Rugged protection and easily at your fingertips.
Today's modern cell phone calls itself a smartphone. Introducing our mobile phone holster called a SmartCase II. Now you can answer your phone without the embarrassment of digging into your pocket or rummaging in your purse. Designed for the practical every day working man or woman, this smartphone holster features a sturdy steel gun holster style clip that holds on tight to keep your phone holster from falling off your belt, purse or hanging off your pocket's lip. It easily mounts for "low carry." This keeps your smartphone holster out of the way of a seat belt, yet still perfectly accessible.
Now we learn that it's probably not a good idea to carry your smartphone in your pocket due to radiation exposure. Why worry about the cancer risk when you can slip it into a Red Oxx Smartcase Holster and get the added benefit of easy access?
Recently upgraded to hold the larger screen smartphones from Apple and Android, the SmartCase II has a wider 3 inch elastic nylon side panels that stretch, a wider 1 1/2 inch fully adjustable Velcro strap and a 1/2 inch longer holster backplate. These upgrades allow accommodation with larger phones such as the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S5. The redesigned fully adjustable Velcro strap has a larger surface area for better bite and can be adjusted to accommodate larger or smaller phones. These upgrades all hold both the smaller and larger smartphones in place until peace is shattered by your ringtone.
SmartCase II: fast, convenient and Red Oxx tough. Every time you turn around you might have to buy a new mobile phone, but you'll never need another smartphone holster. To the locals here in Montana, this is a popular way to carry your smartphone. After all, Montanans like things that ride in holsters.
Our smartphone SmartCase II Smartphone holster fits most iPhones and Android phones, both small and larger screens. Smaller screens may require refitting the adjustment Velcro ribbon further inside the holster and larger screen phones may require "loosening" of the Velcro strap further out of the holster. Consider as well, some break-in time for the side elastic.
Interior dimensions: 2.75 inches wide, 1 inch thick (stretches up to 1.5 inches) and 5 inches deep. Strap measures 1.5 inches wide and 7 inches long.
Weight: 1.7 Ounces.
The SmartCase II fits most of the latest smartphones (as of Spring 2015) and nearly all older smartphones.
