I made an heavy duty case for large smartphone. I decided for two positions of the belt, useful for normal or car use. The closure is Velcro.
I used very good quality cowhide (Italian fine tannery), natural tanning.
Armors are 2mm aluminum plates, hand stiched with waxed wire. The construction is sturdy, the protection against impact is very good, above all compared to normal product.
The fit is good, the case can be used till 40mm belt.
A nice Xmas gift
