It's never pretty when your expensive iPhone falls out of your pocket and shatters. Especially for those who need their phone well-protected and on-hand while they work, a holster case can be a great solution. Our favorite is the Aduro Case because of its sleek look and simple clip-style holster.

If that's not your cup of tea, there are plenty of great options on this list. Whether you're looking for one that will turn heads like the Zizo Bolt Series or one that blends into the background like this i-Blason ArmorBox case, these iPhone XS Max cases with holsters are worth considering. Each option should provide years of protection and keep your device on hand at all times.
