A couple of weeks ago, I realized it was time to replace my old case. I'd never let my BlackBerry go anywhere without one, but this case was looking pretty ratty. I knew I wanted something to protect against my arch-enemy, gravity, as well as everyday dings and scratches. I found what I was looking for in the Seidio Innocase Active Case. Trouble is, I hate carrying by BlackBerry in a pocket. That's where the companion holster comes in to play.

The Seidio Innocase Active Holster is specifically designed to securely hold your BlackBerry while it is protected by the Case. Using these two products, I get the security of a case with the convenience of a holster. Featuring a strong multi-direction belt clip and sleeper magnet, the holster comes with the best securing clip I've ever used. Using not one, but two springs; the holster firmly holds your BlackBerry in place and is easily opened when it's BlackBerry time.

Researching the Case, I found a number of people who claiming it caused their BlackBerry to lock up. This happened to me as well; the case just holds too tightly to the body of the phone. By carefully stretching out the case around the exterior buttons, I was able to prevent it from happening again. It's also useful to put the flexible inner bit on before adding the outer shell. This is certainly a situation where "tight and secure" is both a good and bad thing.

From Seidio comes an amazing pairing of products that combine to give me the ultimate in convenience and protection. It certainly saved me from a cracked screen when my Torch landed face-down on concrete last week. With the holster, I can have my BlackBerry ready to go faster than you can say "CrackBerry.com."
