    I've been looking for a holster that I can use in conjunction with my apple leather case and finally found one at Best Buy.

    The Holster is a perfect fit with apple's leather case or any slim type case such as Spigen's neo hybrid, etc. (The Holster does include its on case as well)

    Here are some pics.

    This is perfect for those who want to use a holster without having to go the route of otterbox..Now you can have both the hoslter and a perfectly slim case from Apple or Spigen..

    I actually might do this. I saw those in Best Buy..think it was $35? So that's basically an $85 case! Ouch..

    Yes $35..You don't need to use the apple leather case. The actual holster/case combo includes a case as well..

    Love these holsters. Usually get Seidio. These are cheaper and look the same.

    I will be heading to BestBuy...

    is the case that comes with this hard plastic or silicone? it looks very thin. I'm thinking of picking it up. and how durable do you think the spring is on the holster? sedio quality or less?

    It's hard plastic. Not terrible quality imo..the fit is real tight and it's hard to pull off.

    interesting. matte or gloss finish on the case?

    this case reminds me of my blackberry bold 9000 days, i wish the iPhone was like the iPad and had the magnetic thing to put it to sleep mode. BB had it and i loved every minute of it.

    i went and got one, its a decent case BUT i HATE that its one of those slider cases, thus because its a slider case its a little loose to me. i tried to put some cotton balls along the edges to make a tight fit which is did but now the slider comes apart too easy. shame because its such a nice setup.

    That's strange. I tried on two cases on my plus and both fit so tight I could barely get them off

    When you say, the fit is real tight? Do you mean the case to the holster? What case are you using?

    If you're using the included case or apple leather case (or similar case), its a perfect and smooth fit.

    This holster operates exactly like the lifeproof holster...

    The tough Armor is too thick..

    I mean the case that comes with the Platinum holster fits extremely tight on the iPhone. I just had alot of trouble trying to get the case off after I tried it on at Best Buy.

    OP, it will be interesting to know if the leather gets worn at the top where it will rub against the moving holder at the top of the holster.

    I have put stick on felt and other softer material on Seidio holsters in the past to protect cases.

    Wanted to add that i have this case/holster as well and its actually really solid. I picked it up to use while i wait for my leather case to show up, mainly for the case and not as much the holster. Not going to lie tho, the case is really nice. I was pretty impressed.

    Anyone use this with the silicone case? I like the slimness this holster provides!

    I think Seidio makes these Platinum cases for Bestbuy.

    These are identical to the Seidio cases and holsters. The Platinum series is made by Seidio for Best Buy. I have had both and can't tell any difference between the two except for the branding. I have had this combo on every iPhone since the 3GS and have never broken the belt clip. I have a friend that has broken a few from wearing them while in his car and sitting on the holster.
