  1. This product is excellent. IMHO, one mark of a great company is how it mails and packages the product that you receive from the company. In this case, you will receive first-class media material and a free leather coaster, all well packaged with the product in an appealing manner. The small quality details of product and the company’s material point to a company that knows how to treat its customers and present its products, all of which tells you the quality type of company the customer is buying from.


  2. The phone case is exactly what I was looking for. It is very handsome and my iPhone 10x with otter case fits like a glove. Also the package presentation is exquisite. Very well pleased.

  3. Excellent craftsmanship, stellar customer service and attention to detail in this cell phone holster did not go unnoticed. Would highly recommend any of the Colonel’s products!


  4. This large cell phone holster is a great product and surprisingly rare and hard to find for the iphone Plus size. I bought both the black and brown for different colors of clothing. I use the Iphone holster constantly because I am suppose to keep a cell phone several feet away from my pacemaker. You also could put a wallet or small gun in it, it’s so useful for a variety of uses. I suggest that Colonel Littleton create a brand of TN Whiskey.

  5. Cell phone holsters are the BEST! I sent one of my holsters back to the company as a rivet came out. Not only did Col Littleton make the repair at no charge, a 101 luggage tag with my information & leather coaster was included. The hand written note was special in today’s world. Conclusion: Excellent Customer Service!

    Thanks – T


  6. The best cell phone holster. Col Littleton stands behind its products. I have purchased almost a dozen over the years as cell phone sizes change. Perfect holster for me!


  7. I purchased several phone holsters from various mall kiosks over the years at 20 bucks each. Their weakness was always the belt loop or clip. I found the Colonel’s No. 49 and what caught my interest was the no BS heavy duty riveted belt loop. Wow! Finally a design without the built-in ‘planned obsolescence’. I did not hesitate. I bought one cause I know it would outlive 20 of the mall job holsters. I have purchased the No. 48 several years ago for my other phone. The case outlived my phone! When I upgraded phones, I checked out the Colonel’s inventory and found a case that fit my iphone Xr. Just position it on my belt as not to block front or rear pocket access and I’m ready to get to work. I say build it Once, build it to last…the price will reflect the quality. You definitely get what you pay for. Keep up the quality and I’ll keep on being a customer! Thank you Col. Littleton and thank you To all the employees, inspector ss, and thanks for the mini moonpie!

  9. I can never compare this to anything made by others. So nice. Kind capable folks at customer service also. Thanks


  10. After years of wearing embarassingly pitiful phone holsters I stumbled on Colonel Littleton’s wonderful world of all things leather. I immediately felt “simpatico” with this fellow “Colonel”. I ended up buying two of these phone holsters as I changed Iphone sizes etc. It is very satisfying to wake up in the morning and strap on a quality piece of leather that you will be diving into several times a day as I respond to a world that has almost passed me by. Having this leather on my hip takes me back to my youth, and a time, and an era when leather was almost, but not quite king (that would have been my granpappy’s time in the 1870s & 1880s in Bandera, Texas. With the Colonel I’ve found a place where I can “hang out” in a world I understand and appreciate. My Grandaddy would love it. Lt Col Roger Barnes, USAF (Ret)

  11. I have had for years a #48 to carry my iPhone 6 and really like it. This past fall I upgraded my iPhone to an XR with a Defender case by Otterbox. I was much concerned as to what holster would work and decided to go with #49 large. It fits perfectly, not to tight or to loose. And again the workmanship is great as was my #48.

  12. I have used this phone case for a year or so now. It is the most practical, well designed, well made case I’ve used…ever! Now I am adding the crossbody phone case to my collection and expect the same level of beauty and practicality.


  13. I purchased the No 49L phone holster for my i-phone 8 plus several months past I have the UAG Monarch case on it and find that the holster is to large for the phone as it moves around as I walk etc. I put a patch of fleece inside and that stops the movement. The case takes up a lot of room on my belt and doesn’t fit some trousers with loops closer together. The workmanship is outstanding as well as the two holsters I ordered in the past. I figured the fit would have been more customized as the ones I purchased in the past. My mistake for not checking the measurements more closely with a tape measure. Just passing the info on so that some one else should check closer than I. Can’t beat the quality and workmanship of the case though.


  14. I have a Samsung phone that I have had a number of years. I ordered a Colonel Littleton No. 49 case for my phone and finally wore it out. I just ordered another case, and this time ordered the No. 49 L. It just came in and my phone fits very well in it. I highly recommend these phone cases. They hold up well to lots of use and wear and tear! They have a customer in me for life! Thank you for the quality!

  15. I have an iPhone 7 plus and I’ve searched the world over for a case like this one. This is the first place I’ve been able to find one large enough to accommodate my phone. The case is very well made and should last for many years to come. Great job Colonel. Keep up the good work!


  16. This is an impressive phone holster. It has plenty of room for my Samsung Galaxy s9+ in a protective case and my #2 Card Wallet so that I always have business cards handy too. Another great product design from the Colonel!

  17. This is exactly what I needed. Well made and the loop will not allow the case to slide off the belt as in competitors who claim ultimate protection.

  18. Another excellent item from the Colonel. Got a new phone that is rather large, and this case is perfect for it. Also has room for future phones if they get larger. Stellar customer service and communication. My hat’s off to you, Colonel.

  19. Fits my 8S. Great phone holster no 49


  20. Quite ample enough for my iPhone 6-S; phone is well protected and lies flat and snug against my hip. Rugged craftsmanship that will hold up for a while.


  21. Excellent quality, I wanted the best and truly believe I got it with this holster. I would highly recommend these holsters to anyone wanting the best. Buy and enjoy!

  22. Entirely too large for an iPhone 6 plus. It will actually fit in a 47 holster if the flap was larger.

    Rick (verified owner)

  23. Wonderful quality. Bought the large so I could grow with the newer larger phones. This fits my Pixel XL. The marking for “turn screen to this side” is backward. Screen on my case needs to be toward the outside of the belt.


  24. I received my Phone Holster No. 49-Large today. What an awesome phone holster. I was concerned it might not be large enough to accommodate my IPhone 7+ with an Otterbox Statement cover. It fits perfectly with room to spare!I highly recommend this product to protect your expensive IPhone purchase!

  25. I just received my 4th iPhone holster. I now carry a 6S in a otter box defender case. I was not sure which case would fit best so I called customer services and spoke to Judy B. Without a doubt this was my best experience dealing with a customer service rep. Judy helped me decide which was my best choices do I have to say she was right. I ordered the 49Large and it is perfect for my phone. This is by far and away the best phone holster on the market. The leather craftsmen really care about what they make and it shows in every stitch. This is no fancy good for looks only holster made out of over processed leather with no character. This is made out of cows that lived a “John Wayne” out west life. Simply put this is the best American made phone holster made with American raised and processed cow leather by American craftsmen. And it doesn’t get any better than that!


  26. Purchased the 60 large and the 49 large for my iPhone 6s Plus with a life proof case on it. The 60 large is to little with the life proof case on. The 49 large fit with lots of extra room in depth. with the life proof case on. Overall I’m very happy with 49 large case.


  27. I have a model 47 phone case, and two belts I purchased from Colonel Littleton. All three items are made exceptionally well. I just ordered and received a model 49 holster because I finally updated to a larger phone. I have no reservations about this holster because all of the items have from Colonel Littleton
    I believe are the best on the market. And they all look better with use
    Now I never have to to worry about losing my phone (a common problem with cheap belt clips) and I know this holster will last and look better with years of use.
    Thank you Colonel Littleton


  28. Beautiful case; extremely well-made. Hugs the body nicely and does not “dangle” messily as did my previous case. Samsung Note 4 fits perfectly, as does my new and not yet activated Note 7.

    A suggestion: ship with, or make available, a foam or similar “filler” so that thinner phones will have a snugger internal fit. But I am delighted with this case as-is!

  29. I discovered Colonel Littletons site on line while looking for a quality leather case for my iphone 6 plus in an otterbox case. I called and spoke to staff two different times. Excellent customer service/ people skills. I listened to the Colonel’s video message, and that is truly wbst sold me on the product. Love his philosophy and approach! My holster arrived today and I was not dissappointed. Iam now trying to figure out what I want next. Definitely not my last purchase!!!!


  30. I am thrilled with this purchase. The leather looks. feels and smells great! The quality is excellent. I have had the smaller phone holsters for 10 years and they have worn extremely well. I do not see ever wearing them out, but I needed to upgrade my phone. This fits the iPhone 6 with the Otter case perfectly and provides enough room to slide the phone in and out easily. I look forward to these lasting a lifetime!

  31. Nice – very nice! It will last me the rest of my days and hand down to my grandson . . . . Top-notch products underpinning first-rate marketing. Quality I have not seen for 25-years in “USA Made” products. Keep-up the great work, you and your company should be rightly proud! S.J.B. (Atlanta, GA)


  32. This is a great case. the leather is excellent. This is my second case. Didn’t need it because the original will never wear out. Just wanted the other color to change off to. These cases are a little expensive but well worth it. In the long run they are less money than other lesser quality cases because the Colonel’s last forever.

  33. Excellent design and quality. I thought it would be too bulky, but it’s just right. I have an Incipio Ghost Qi battery case for iPhone 6. It fits well inside this holster. The case looks great, is secure, and is easy to use.

  34. Great case I use it with my iPhone 6 with a UAG case. They make the best leather goods.

  35. I am thrilled with my new leather phone holster. Had just bought a new larger cell phone. Found the Colonel online. Ordered this case and received it within days with embossing. Quality is tremendous. Enough room with the protective cover and my fat fingers. Only disappointment was that I did not shop here sooner. One happy camper!

  36. Excellent design and quality, as usual. This is the third phone holster I have purchased (as my phones get larger).

  37. This is the best holster you can have for your Samsung, or any other large Android phone period. Looks great with the ranger belt and its an eye catcher when walking down the streets or in the coffee shop.


  38. I’m excided. Large is large. I truly enjoy everything I get from Col Littleton. I know the dimensions are listed in the description but this a roomy well made holster.

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
