We had some blazing weather in Vancouver a week ago. Well, it looks like Summer is over now. Bring on the rain! hehe. Anyways, I’ve had some people asking me via email what case I’m using for my iPhone 3GS. Let me explain today what the best combination is for those looking for an iPhone leather case with belt clip.
The first thing I did when I got my iPhone 3GS was put on the invisibleSHIELD. Now, the thing with any type of “shield” skin is that it looks great, but over time the edges of the skin will pick up dirt and lint in your pant pockets and cause peeling. The only way to avoid ruining your “shield” type skins is to put the phone into a case.
However, with the invisibleSHIELD full body on, some tight fitting cases won’t fit. I found this out the hard way in the past. But for over a year now I’ve been using a leather belt clip case which has worked amazingly well. If you’re into the whole iPhone-on-my-belt-like-a-gun-holster then this case might be for you.
As you can see from the pictures below, the leather case has one magnetic flap to keep your iPhone secure, and elastic band edges on the sides to easily stretch open to remove or insert your iPhone. On the bottom there is a small opening to help grab your iPhone. The best part about this case is the belt clip is STRONG. It’s one of the tightest holds and can clip onto any belt, or even just pants or shorts.
If you don’t want the case on your belt, you can just easily put it in your pocket and your invisibleSHIELD application will be saved. This case is available from OrionGadgets (with free shipping btw) and is what I’ve been using and telling my friends about when they ask. I’ve tried other belt clip cases but this one seems to work the best because of its secure belt clip and light weight.

PS – On a side note, I will be holding an invisibleSHIELD giveaway for the iPhone 3G/3GS. Stay tuned! 🙂
