Need a manly phone case

At work I use a CAT S61 - it's a heavily ruggedized, drop-proof, water-proof, dust-proof device with a monstrous battery, some handy hardware gizmos, robustly overkill radio, and generally middly smartphone specs.

Away from work I use a cheap RCA thing I got at London Drugs. Huge screen, clumsy, slippery, flimsy, scary fragile, it was always meant to be "disposable" but I'm still afraid it'll break everytime I handle it.

 

Both devices are too big for pockets, one is too chunky and beastly and the other is a glass victim looking for an accident. I refuse to keep carrying them in hand and I'm tired of packing a man-purse (backpack or gym bag) everytime I leave my car.

Belt cases aren't for me, I don't want to be a 1990s dinosaur or a Batman-wannabe.

So I'm thinking some kind of snug underarm/torso holster thing, like the ones cops on TV use to hide their guns. It's either that or I start buying shirts and jackets with cavernous chest pockets. Or maybe cargo pants - which I personally think are *always* utterly awesome even though the rest of society and fashion (and my female) assure me they are vehemently disagreeable. 

 

Can anyone recommend a case of this sort for me?

 

Bonus awesomeness if it can also hold some cards and money which normally require a wallet. Because that's how Korth rolls.

Try Amazon, I have nothing but bad luck looking for a case for my mi a2 anywhere else. I swear if you don't own a bloody iphone you're pretty much stuck ordering online.

Lots of other tech stuff greatly reduced : charging cords, power packs Bluetooth accessories and the like....

London Drugs should have some selections too.

Re: Need a manly phone case

Thanks all but I've found what I was looking for. 

 

There exist vast and manly categories of "phone holsters" and "tactical phone cases" which I never knew about before. I only need something for work/personal use but I suppose being prepared for black ops messaging missions and concealed phone carry and akimbo voice calling ain't a bad thing.

Good that you found something, would you mind posting a picture of it for all of us to see?

I'm ordering one of these..

Just waiting on a vendor's business hours because I'd rather pay his $35 than the manufacturer's suggested $165 for this item, lol, it seems some sort of bad kickstart (or whatever) happened and a lot of people got stuck holding surplus stock.

 

It's definitely Manly enough to make me giddy and my female roll her eyes.

Oh that's definitely the way to go.

Re: Need a manly phone case

Yup, definitely the way to go. 

 

Especially since it could - theoretically, technically, hypothetically - be combined with cargo pants. Just sayin'

EDIT: here's a key excerpt for you, Mr. Manly-Man!

 

"When the Phonster X came along at the beginning of 2017, I jumped on the Kickstarter, seeking something more. When the holster finally showed up six months later, it was like a dream. The straps were strong and non-elastic — meaning they sat better on my petite female frame — and the second multi-pouch was big enough to fit my wallet, car keys, house keys, hand sanitizer, and even a tiny bit of candy when needed, meaning that I could still have everything I needed even while wearing yoga pants or a skirt."

 

Hmm, maybe "your female" will end up wearing it rather than rolling her eye?  Robot LOL
