About

The History of Urban Holster 

4 years ago when we launched URBAN HOLSTER successfully on Kickstarter, I had one thing in mind: To create a unique leather holster for our sidekick devices of any brand (iPhone, Android varieties)  that was both visually distinct borrowing the aesthetics of an era bygone and functional.   The product received success in the open market as well and after 4 years we have reached a point  where we thought  it was time to design a new modified version based on the feedback we have received  by an ever growing community of users.

So by popular demand we conceived URBAN HOLSTER #2 developed by a new team and looking forward to gain the same kick-starting momentum we received in our first launch for our new production needs  (manufacturing and marketing). 

 

 

 

Improvements 

In the last 4 years we received a lot of feedback on our older versions of Urban Holster.   some fundamental changes for better usability were necessary.  

The differences  between  the old and new designs are subtle yet significant. While we are still preserving the overall concept design of  the original one, we have improved it based on your feedback with the following modifications:

1) Created more  space for both the front and back pocket without making the overall design bulky.  One can now place a mobile device (iPhone or Android -- see dimensions below) in either the front or the back  pocket that has space enough to  store other traveling  items as well (tickets, small maps, paper bills, coins  or any other smaller items) .

2) The back pocket snapping button  is shifted from the middle  to the side  so it is  "out of the way"  when inserting or withdrawing your mobile phone from the Holster's front pocket.  

3) The belt loops are replaced in favor of a buckle styled strap  that stylistically is more pleasing  and more functional as it allows you to strap the Holster on and off with more ease (no need of taking off your belt).

History 

The story is simple:  I was consulting at a large firm south of Chicago. The area has an interesting blend of collegiate, hi-tech, business and rural personality. In the evenings I would stroll around the town where I came across a fantastic wholesale leather store. Mesmerized by  the images of cowboys,  leather holsters,  and inspired by an era bygone, I designed  a unique  holster for my Android phone.  A holster that didn't look like any of those cheap, nerdy and awkward looking pouch like holsters in the market.  So decided to use my early design skills and start prototyping on paper and  leather.  Once satisfied with its early function, I launched it on Kickstarter to get the necessary machine cut material for making it available for all.  If you still want to see the history of the  first generation of Urban Holster you can click on the prior campaign's link URBAN HOLSTER FIRST CAMPAIGN.  

The essence of the new holster is the same, run by a new  team staying true to the original spirit of the Urban Holster yet it is more practical. So by popular demand we felt compelled to get this new version out to the world the same way it was embraced the first time around through Kickstarter.   Thanks for your support! 

Phone Sizes

The maximum recommended phone size is 5.5 inches long and 2.7 inches wide.  Any bigger size would be unpractical and aesthetically "wrong".
