This holster case from Toronto-based LD West seems completely ridiculous at first glance, but it starts to make a lot more sense when you realize your oversized iPhone 6 or 6 Plus might no longer fit in your pants pocket. Strapping my phone to my side with what looks like an over-the-shoulder gun holster doesn’t exactly vibe with my usually minimalistic approach to iPhone cases. But it turns out the product is much more than just the gimmick I thought it was.
It’s not the first iPhone case that lets you go hands-free without everyone seeing a huge bulge in your pants, but you probably won’t want to wear one of those sport armband holders over your suit jacket, and a 90’s style belt clip is completely out of the question.
If the police can kill a man simply holding a BB gun in a Walmart or shoot a man for following police instructions and reaching into the car to get an ID, what are they going to do when someone reaches for their iPhone in a shoulder holster?
It will not be pretty. I think I’ll let it bend.
