Cases come in all shapes and sizes. Different styles of case tend to cater to certain phones. For example, a form fitting leather case wouldn’t work very well with my Tilt. I’ve used a Seidio holster in the past with a Samsung Blackjack (and loved it), but I was a little unsure how well one of their holsters would work with a phone as bulky as the Tilt.
Stick around to see how well the Seidio holster for the Tilt handles the age old question; does this case make my phone look fat?
Few case manufacturers are as good at what they do as Seidio. The Tilt Holster is molded to fit securely around your phone. The bottom of the case wraps around each of the bottom corners of the Tilt, holding it securely in place as well as protecting the corners in the event that the phone gets dropped.
The top edge is held securely by a clip that wraps completely over the top of the device. The clip features a rubber tooth-like protrusion and a spring loaded hinge which ensure that your phone is always as secure as possible. The device itself faces inward, protecting the screen from dust and scratches.
The one pet peeve that I had with my Blackjack holster was that the top clip would actually rub up against the screen and cause scratches. This is a non-issue with the Tilt holster as the clip is entirely on the outside of the device.
All of the plastics are sturdy on the holster and all of the moving parts (top clip, belt clip) are strong but not so stiff that they’re unusable. The belt clip rotates side to side, letting you choose how to wear the case. The lines and contours of the case leave all of the buttons and ports on the outside of the device un-obscured, allowing you to even charge your phone without removing it from the case.
This really is a high quality product. Seidio got all of the details right when they were designing their holster for the Tilt. After using two of their holsters, for two very different devices; I can say with certainty that Seidio makes some of the best cases on the market. If you’re looking for a holster for your phone, make Seidio your first choice. You can find the holster for the AT&T Tilt here for $24.95.
little spartan (very basic)

I had one of these when I had the Tilt. It was outstanding and really deserves 5 stars. Extremely secure. My only gripe was it was a bit spendy, but since I use my phone for work I was able to expense it so it didn't cost me anything!
I have one for my Treo Pro, as well as the Innocase & Innocase holster. Both work very well. And the Innocase holster is actually the right size for an uncovered Tilt 2 -- the bottom slot is just right for the HTC dongle.
Considering that I've already EOL'ed my Tilt, the seidio holster was great at securing the phone, until the bottom part of the holster clipped a door handle and snapped off. Waiting for the touch pro 2 version to come out.
Purchased one similar for an old 8125(Wizzard) I am holding onto. The holster was great but it also broke at the swivel joint after a scrape from a solid object. I rejoined them with a cabinet fastener from Home Depot and it's back in action. Build quality is otherwise excelent and worth a premium price.
Thanks for the positive feedback guys. I'm also waiting impatiently for a Touch Pro2 version to show up in our store.
I've had a Seidio holster for both my 8125 and my Tilt.
For my Tilt I also had a Innocase for full phone protection. I've been quite pleased with all my Seidio purchases. I've had no major problems with the holster, but after almost 2 years of service, the little clips that hold the Innocase onto the phone have slowly chipped. Now the back cover will not stay on my Tilt.
But, then again, after almost 2 years of good service, I really can't complain. Without the Innocase on, my Tilt fits well in my old 8125 holster, so I'm still using a Seidio product on my Tilt ... jut without the all-around protection of the Innocase. I will soon be upgrading out of my Tilt anyways.
When I do, I'll want to make sure that Seidio has accessories for my next device (either an AT&T Pure or Tilt 2).
