Best Holster Cases for iPhone XS Max iMore 2020

Holster smartphone cases aren't always sexy, but they'll allow you to keep your phone close by without having to take up space in your pocket or handbag — perfect for those who need to go hands-free in the field. This type of case is also great protection if you are rough on phones. These are high-quality holster cases that offer both protection and hands-free convenience.

Look at that style: Aduro iPhone XS Max Holster Case

Staff Pick

Featuring a pattern design, this holster case from Aduro offers a rubberized texture that makes it easier to grip. Included is a built-in kickstand for hands-free viewing in both horizontal and vertical angles.

Flying high: Encased Falcon Belt Case

The Falcon full-body case offers full 360-degree protection by providing a shock-resistant bumper and drop-in tempered glass screen protector. Use the secure-fit companion holster when necessary; otherwise, show off the back of your phone.

Use with a regular case: Monsoon Alpha

Made from genuine leather, this holster with a belt clip will also work with iPhone Plus models. Better still, it can accommodate most single- and dual-layer cases of up to 0.55-inches in thickness. In other words, it's perhaps the most flexible holster case on this list.
