    This question is geared for the guys. How do you carry your 6s+?

    For years, when I had the 4 and 5s, it would slip into a jean pocket or if I'm wearing carpenter jeans, the side leg pocket even with a case on it. I had a Otterbox Defender for the 4 so it was clipped to my hip sometimes.

    With the 5s, I used a Spigen case w/ the Glass.tr tempered glass cover. It worked great for 2 years. It fitted perfectly into my shirt pocket when I'm at work. When I'm wearing cargo pants, it fits perfectly. It also fitted into carpenter jeans.

    Now I have a problem with the 6s+. I tried the Otterbox Defender with belt clip. No deal. The screen gap was annoying as heck and it just felt like I was carrying a large gun on my hip. It was too thick for my shirt pockets too. It barely fit cargo pants and there's no way it'll fit my jeans.

    So the Defender went back and I went with a Spigen slim armor with tempered glass on order now (Daswise). It fits in my shirt pocket at work, but nearly a third sticks out now. Fits in my cargo's, but definitely not in my jeans. I hate putting anything in my back pockets so that's out.

    Needless to say, I need a few ideas.

    So guys....how are you carrying your 6s+?

    Thanks!

    I carry mine in a belt holster. You're right about the Defender, it is big, I have one - been there done that. Now I'm using either a Magpul or UAG (have both) and carry it in a holster. The Seidio Dilex Pro holster fits both cases perfectly. I'm just not comfortable carrying the 6+ in a pocket and at work it's just not practical for me, the holster is a necessity while working.

    I have the leather case but need a holster for it, I had a Klein tools holster for my 6 but the plus don't fit in it. Out of work I just put it in my pocket but can't do that at work as I have to much other crap I carry.

    Otterbox Defender, sometimes in the belt clip but mostly in my back pocket.

    back pocket.

    If I intend to be extra fancy, I will get a designer satchel.

    What the hell are you wearing?!

    My 6s+ fits just fine and these jeans are pretty damn slim too.

    I don't think it would fit in the key pocket for my running shorts, or the front pocket of a dress shirt, but why should it?

    I am typically wearing dress pants for work. With my bodyguardz Shock case, fits perfect in my front pocket with my wallet.

    I usually put my keys in my left pocket and wallet in right pocket of my dress slacks. I might have to move my keys to wallet side and put the phone on left side. As for my carpenter jeans, I"ll have to try the regular pockets then. I used to slip the 5s into the slim right leg pocket, which the 6s+ doesn't fit now.

    Pocket of my jeans works fine for me going caseless or with a thin case. I wouldn't want to walk around all day with it, but it's really been no problem with the 6S Plus and my Note 4 previously.

    I wear slim fit pants and the phone with a Magpaul case barely fits in my front pocket and it barely fits in my back pocket. By barely, I mean in the front you can kind of see it from the side depending on the pants and in the back pocket it always sticks out slightly.

    No case, front pocket or back pocket of my jeans. I tend to wear slim fit jeans. If I have a hoodie on it'll go in there or in my backpack from time to time.

    I carry my 6S Plus in my sock. And I carry my socks in my underpants.
