Our president, Ralph Holzhaus, had been using an iPhone for a while, but was less impressed with the belt cases available. With a little extra inspiration from longtime customer Tim C., he decided that the revolutionary smartphones deserved a better case that would offer ruggedness, security and convenience. The resulting Wilderness Smartphone Case is everything you would expect from us.
Made from rugged 1000D Cordura nylon, it has our signature wraparound belt loop that is wide enough to fit duty belts. This belt loop adds a high-density polyethylene liner for stiffness and an extra Velcro patch so that it can be folded back upon itself and used as a paddle inside snug pants without a belt. Several of our staff have been using it this way and are very pleased.
The case body is lined with a thin layer of closed-cell foam to cushion shock and allow the case to snugly form fit your specific phone over time. Fits common smartphones, including iPhones, Blackberrys, Droids (Droid X with no cover is the maximum size it will accept) and PDAs, many low-profile protective cases*. Full-flap with Velcro closure protects and retains the phone.
*While the case provides great protection, we also like to keep our phones in the case with the screen facing inward to the body. This adds more protection to the fragile screen in the event of a serious impact with a sharp or blunt object.
We now simply list the basic flat internal dimensions due to variances in the thickness and volume of the multitude of phones and add-on cases. Please consider that your phone's thickness will reduce the length and width accordingly. As a rough guide, if your phone is 1/2" thick, subtract at least 1/2" from the width and depth dimensions listed for the cases to compensate and achieve a proper fit. A phone that is 3" wide and 1/2" thick will require a case whose internal flat dimension is at least 3-1/2" wide. We try to give common examples of phone compatibility for each size as a guide, but we are unable to answer specific fitting questions in most cases.
