    Just received my 4th product from the Colonel. And, again, I’m “as happy as a pig in slop”.
    The leather is superb, the workmanship more, so, the metal fittings even more so, and the customer service is unparalleled in my experience.
    What more could anyone possibly ask for, except perhaps a phone that outlasts the case, but experience tells me that’s NOT gonna happen … JP

    I purchased my iPhone holster after seeing one that was gifted to a friend. My holster is extremely well made. I look forward to years of use and will recommend it to others.

    This is my 4th product from the Col.and the Col. never disappoints! I received the large No.48 for my IPhone 7 with a modest sized (leather of course) case and it fits perfectly! Not too tight not too loose. My other products are about 4 or 5 years old now and looking better with each passing year. Moon Pies for everyone!!

    Beautiful color, patina and superior construction. No.48 large was suggested to fit my Galaxy S-6 Edge (with case) and it fits perfectly! Made in USA and it shows!
    I highly recommend Colonel Littleton’s product, you won’t be disappointed!

    Very good product. Well made, quality. The belt loop construction is a very important feature to me, and a feature which is hard to find. Know that I will enjoy using this phone holster. Assuring to know that we still can find good, quality products made in the USA!!!

    This is the 3rd phone holster I have purchased. All are still in great shape after many years of wear. The phones get larger, therefore the need for a larger holster.

    This is my third Colonel Littleton phone case. As the size of my phone gets larger, I have to have my Colonel Littleton case. Superb quality, looks great! Nothing compares to this case.

    This is the third product I have purchased from the Colonel. The number 48 phone case is perfect for my Samsung phone. Great quality, great looks and perfect in every respect.

    I have used for an iPhone 4S for several years a variation of the smaller case that I bought from Orvis. I cannot count the number of times folks, male and female, have stopped to ask me where I found that case. Although I mention Orvis, I show them the back with the logo and suggest visiting the website. In the near future I will inherit a 6S, and needed the larger case. I fully expect it to do me as well as the first one.

    I like the security of a belt loop holster. A Nice solid leather and well constructed. For reference my Samsung J3 with a Speck CandyShell fits perfectly (5.8 X 3.125 x .45 inch with shell)

    You can buy other phone cases, but none that will be a durable as this one or will look as good! Second one I have purchased; didn’t need a new one, but the phones keep getting bigger so I had to move up in size just a bit.

    Just purchased my second phone holster in 3 years…nothing wrong with the first one (in fact it is just getting nicely broken in), but the phone company keeps changing the size of their phone. New one fits like a glove and will undoubtedly last for many years and far longer than the technology hardware it is designed to hold! Thanks for the great product and excellent customer service. TI

    These are the best phone holsters you can purchase. I’m on my third Col. Littleton phone holster. They didn’t wear out, I just purchased larger phones. Col. Littleton’s phone holsters are the only ones I consider purchasing.

    I own the black and the brown in the Large size for carrying an iPhone 6s. Just perfect! Would not change a thing. Thanks for a great product that allows me to keep my phone handy and a pocket free’d up for carrying a G43…:-)

    This is the second product I have ordered. I am very pleased. The quality and service is second to none. I did make a mistake by ordering a product from a different company which I had to return, and it remains to be seen if I’ll get my money back for it. I should have known better!

    I just purchased this case for the iPhone 6s with a speck minimalist case on it. At first I thought the case might be a bit large but I found it to be a perfect fit. Assuming I have to buy another phone in 2 or more years and buy a replacement case from the Colonel, I will keep this these extremely well made case for use in the future to carry things on my belt. This is definitely the best case I have seen on the web and I was not disappointed when it arrived.

    UPS just delivered my new PH48L-6 case. I have a iPhone 5s and as soon as the new model comes out I am going to upgrade it to the newest iPhone, and now I have a case for it. Great leather and very well made with fast shipping. Very impressed and will probably order more products now that I know about this site.

    Wonderful real leather product. The quality you would expect but very rarely get anymore. This replaced a foreign plastic case that cost more originally. Will buy more real leather products.

    After the clip portion of my OtterBox broke I was looking for a replacement leather case that was more distinctive than the standard mass produced ones; this was it.

    I left the phone case portion of the OtterBox on and ordered the large holster which has a bit of room to spare and could probably fit many of the android models as well. Still relatively new but appears to be of solid quality.

    Great American Quality
    Although not tested by time, the #48 iPhone belt loop case looks and feels wonderful. So thankful there’s an alternative to imported junk. I’d bet this item will be at my side for many years. So happy I’m placing an order to a couple of additional Col. Littleton items today.

    Great Value
    For me, a product such as this one is not expensive if it delivers durable value. The leather is firm but without stiffness, and the stitching is precise. This holster manages to look elegant and rugged at the same time. I am very pleased with this product, and I cannot imagine anyone else not feeling the same way.

    Pricey yes but very well made and defrent.not junk from China.
    American made.keep our craftsmen the look.

    Great gift
    I received the iPhone holster with belt loop as a gift. It has served me well and I have enjoyed the attention from others who were impressed with the rugged yet functional design.
