This is a vry nice item. I recently got a new phone and it is bigger that what I am use to using, so I am a little leary of csrrying it around when I am doing the horses at the barn. this case is a grest way of keeping it safe. I just put my phone inside and close it up than I hook the case to my belt loop. If I need to use the phone I can without taking it out of the case. I can even take pictures with out taking it out of the case. I work around a lot of dirt, dust and even water all the time. this air tight case keeps my phone protected form all of that.
