5 Reasons to Holster Your Phone

We might be biased, but we think holstering your phone is the way to go . Whether you’re working, hunting, or hanging out on vacation, keeping your phone in a belt clip holster is always more convenient. Since we are the phone holster pros, we have listed some our favorite reasons to holster your phone.

1. Stay Close

Losing your phone is the worst. As a society, we are now, more than ever, dependent on our cell phones (unless you’re carrying a flip phone, which is still pretty awesome ). With calls, texts, emails, passwords, notes, photos, reminders, games, and SO much more all inside our smart phones, you need to keep it close-by. That is where holsters come in. With a phone holster, you always know exactly where your phone is, conveniently kept on your belt.

2. Free Pockets

Have you noticed that phones are getting bigger and bigger? So long are the days of the palm-sized Nokia. Now we have iPhone6 plus, with the largest smart phones ever being manufactured today. You have got to have some BIG pockets to fit these phones, and even then, it can be uncomfortable. If you do not have a purse or bag (or do not want to lose it in your bag, as discussed above), holsters are your answer. They eliminate the phone being in your pocket, so your pocket space is freed up for better things, like your wallet and keys.

3. Protection

With the cost of smartphones on the market today, we do everything we can to protect them. Hazards seem to be everywhere, from water to pavement to pickpockets, it is a struggle to keep our phones intact. When your phone is secured with a holster, it is protected for two reasons. One, your phone is far less likely to get broken by the hazards around us since it is gripping closely to your hip. On that note, a holster also means that you will be safe from one of the more common reasons for breaking a phone while in your back pocket . Second, since at least half of all robberies are related to cell phones , it is more important than ever to keep your phone from being up for grabs. When you’re sporting a phone holster, your phone is secure and out of reach from pickpockets and other cell phone stealing sick-o’s.

4. Double Protection

If you’re interested in the additional physical protection that a phone case has to offer, it does not mean that you cannot have a phone holster, too. In fact, we’ve thought about that and we have holsters just for you. Our new line of phone holsters that are compatible Otterbox and Mophie cases means you can have the best of both worlds. Use your favorite case and pair it with the durability of our nylon or leather phone holsters. Double the protection is even better!

5. Healthier

Several years ago, a few revolutionary medical studies were released which explained that there are several potential, hidden dangers that come with regular cell phone use. However, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and many well-known doctors offered solutions for protecting oneself from potential cell phone dangers. The primary suggestion from the FCC was to put something between your body and your cell phone. What ever could this substance between your body and your cell phone be? Oh, a phone holster, perhaps? Men’s Health Magazine explains that the worst place to keep your phone is in your shirt or pants pocket, due to potential radiation. Their suggestion? “ Start rocking a hip holster ”. Sounds like a plan to us!
