I ordered this product because I was looking for a leather case holster with rotating belt clip for the iPhone5 that was similar to what BlackBerry always offered with its line of phones. I wanted to use the iPhone5 "naked" and carry it around in a handsome belt clipped case. What's great about this product is that if you were once a BlackBerry user and always liked BlackBerry belt clip holster cases, then you'll like this product. It provides you with the same type of experience - right down to having a top flap that secures using magnets. BUT, AFTER 4 MONTHS OF USING THIS PRODUCT, I've noticed that the belt clip is NOT like the "thumb release belt clip" that comes with BlackBerry cases. The belt clip used by this product is not as good as what BlackBerry provides and it loosens its grip on your belt after a few months. So much so for me that tonight my iPhone case fell off my belt while I was walking a half mile from home and I didn't even realize it! Fortunately, using the "Find My iPhone" app on my iPad, I was able to send a "lost mode" message and signal to my lost iPhone, and a good samaritan who found my phone heeded my message, called me, and returned my phone. But if my iphone case had a "thumb release belt clip" like BlackBerry offers and even Splash offers on its sister iPhone case (the Splash Alpha II), I'm convinced I would not have temporarily lost my iphone tonight. So Splash could IMPROVE this product by upgrading the belt clip. If I had one OTHER quibble, it's that this case does not include an opening on the bottom where one can insert the earbud jack. But there's an easy work-around: if you want to use earbuds while listening to the iphone playing music as it sits snugly in the holster while clipped to your belt, just insert the iphone5 in upside down.Read more ›

Perfect companion to carry iPhone 5 on my belt. The material feels supple rich leather that softens up nicely or I guess the leather breaks-in as they say. Slim clip that adheres to the waist well.

GIven that the iPhone 5 is so prone to scratches, I did not want to put it in a plastic case (my friend's black iPhone 5 was scratched from putting it into a shell/holster combo case). The case fits a "naked" iPhone perfectly. It is a little snug, but I would much rather have it a little snug than too loose. The seller shipped it very quickly, and it arrived 2 days before the expected delivery date. Highly recommend this case to anyone who likes to use their iPhones without a bulky case.

I've been a very satisfied customer for over 2 years using the Alpha I case for iPhone 4 and their ZERO Poly ultra-thin snap-on case. The ZERO protects my iPhone when not in the leather case, and the iPhone and ZERO fit nicely into the Alpha I for iPhone 4.
My first one lasted 2 years before it started looking a bit too tattered. This past Christmas, my family bought me a new one. Now, I decided to upgrade my iPhone 4 to a iPhone 5 so in anticipation of the upgrade, I purchased a ZERO and a Alpha I for iPhone 5.
Today, I got the iPhone 5. The ZERO snapped right on and works just as fabulous as the original. To my disappointment, the set would not fit into the Alpha I for iPhone 5. The new Alpha I was made with absolutely zero tolerance (and zero tolerance for their ZERO case!).

With others here stating their iPhone 5 is too tight (without a snap-case on it), I think Splash is making the Alpha I for iPhone 5 too small. Alpha 1 + ZERO is a perfect combo. Now, I have ordered the bulkier-looking Alpha II. Hopefully it works, or else I have to shop the market for cheap Chinese cases that will fit.

Update: I got the Alpha II. Piece of junk. I thought the Alpha II would be just a larger version of the Alpha I, but instead, it's a different case design (only elastic on the sides, no leather), and while they say "Napa Leather", it's more like cheap, thin, plastic leather. Since the sides are only partially covered, if you drop it, you run the risk of the top or bottom of your phone getting dinged up (which happened to me...thankfully I keep a ZERO slim case on mine so only the ZERO got dinged). Also, I emailed Splash support with my feedback and after a few weeks, they have not even bothered to respond.

Fits the iPhone-5 perfect, goes over a belt just as well as some poorly made clips can cause the belt to wear.

fit, quality and comfort just fine but the rotating clip fell apart after a while. Will not buy rotating clip units from now on. I don't know if its just me or others have similar problems but the plastic clips are just not sturdy enough and seem to break fairly quickly in normal use. Its not that I do gymnastics or life daring escapades with them but one unthought out sit down in a taxi cab or some armchair can break these things off its hinges. Who can remember to always mind and be careful of how they sit down. Can't recommend this on that basis alone.

I replaced the Splash Alpha II when the swivel clip broke after 3 months. The Alpha II worked great with my slim case giving a little protection when I had it out of the holster. The Alpha I is tighter and to start out will not work with a slim case. After about 2 weeks the case stretched so it was loose with out a case and I was able to put the slim case back on my phone a get it in with a tight fit. Not a great design that it stretches that much, and no warning about the differnce in size between the two.

Wish the Alpha II had a better clip.
