There are plenty of plusses and a few minuses with this case. + headphone storage pouch is my favorite feature. I can either put my Sony WI-XB400 in there or my Aukey BT receiver. + magnet closing flap keeps phone in the case even when running. I did not buy this as a sports/running case, but made the observation while running after my kids while I had it on. + pen storage on the sides is more convenient than I originally thought. I have a black metal pen that blends in so you can't even notice it's there. + three ways to mount it on your belt. have not tried the sideways layout yet + card storage. While I am leery of putting a card with a magnetic strip right against the magnet clasp of the phone flap, it is great for membership cards.
+/- this is more an observation. The case is technically better fit for larger phone cases like an otterbox or lifeproof case. I don't like the bulky feeling of those cases and wanted a slim case. That doesn't mean that you can't use the case. Initially I was concerned about the extra space and the phone moving around. I initially used the foam insert that it ships with, sliced it in half thickness wise, to use as filler. It does work, but the foam comes out really easy. So I just opted to let it move around. I noticed that the phone case kind of settled and re-formed around the phone size and it doesn't move anymore.
- I have noticed that when using the middle loop so it is mounted up and down, the metal 3rd clip does kind of dig into your side a bit depending on what kind of pants you are wearing. If you are wearing jeans you probably wont notice it. If you are wearing Dockers, you would probably feel it more
All that being said, I would definitely buy again. I have even had people ask me about it and where they can get one.
