Seidio Skinned Shield Holster from
TreoCentral Store

Seidio Skinned Shield Holster by Seidio

>> Read Review (Rating 4/5) <<

The combination of a skin case (not included, see Related Products below for Skin Cases) with this locking swivel clip holster is the easiest way to carry and fully protect your Treo from everyday scratches and dents.

With its tight yet flexible spring clip on top, its super easy to both secure and remove your Treo quickly when needed.

  • Form Fitting - Specially designed to only fit your skinned Treo.
  • Stylish design with the ability to slip your Treo in and out of the holster with one hand
  • Secures your Treo - stays securely in place with the top, bottom, and lower sides all held in.
  • Locking Swivel Belt Clip - perfect positioning while sitting or standing by rotating through any of 7 angles
  • Easy access to the headset jack, serial connector, and volume control.
  • Faces in - soft, felt pad protects the screen while resting in the holster.
  • Made of very high impact/high performance plastic (PC - polycarbonate) to ensure durability.
  • New and improved clip attachment with reinforced metal ring and increased tension spring to ensure durability. It is also quite stylish.

    Belt clip very flimsy
    I've gone through 2 of the Seidio holsters and would not recommend it. The clip and retaining ring are just plastic under considerable stress that can't handle any flexing. The retaining ring for the belt clip is secured with a cheap soft brass flanged post that is easily bent, popping the post away from the holster. Once that happens, the holster is shot.

    mine broke too... at month 4
    clip separated from body of holster, with treo naturally going to ground. I'm headed for a pouch I think.

    Big Improvement
    Received this holster and skin as a replacement from Seidio customer service after having problems with their "Shield Holster" which is also for sale on this site (great holster until it breaks). I've had this holster now a little more than 6 months and had no problems with it. PROS: I didn't notice how much the skin helped in gripping the phone (as I thought it was fine prior) but it is really noticeable. Plus it does help in the protect of the phone in those occasional drops. No problems so far with the phone coming out of the holster. Very secure with the skin on. Keypad is uncovered which is a big plus. Covered buttons work just fine. CONS: Thicker and more bulky with the skin. (I take it off when carrying the phone in my pocket) The new clip location in the middle means you have to unclip the phone to change the phone between audible and vibrate. Not as easy to on-hand as the Seidio Shield but still workable. Not yet perfect (I really liked the Seidio Shield aside from a couple of wear points and the clip breakage problem) but I would recommend this holster!

    Nice Case
    I bought this case a few months ago and have been using it daily since. I enjoy the belt clip with easy access to the phone. I also like the extra grip the skin case gives the phone in my hand. One thing to be very careful about! The phone is very secure in the belt clip unless it gets caught on something (say a counter top at the right height, or a railing). I was boarding a plane where they had parked the jet way incorrectly and used one of those thing bridges for the gap. The antenna caught one of the railing and the phone popped out of the clip. The good news is it landed on the bottom corner of the skin case (by the audio jack) and there was no damage to the phone!! The skin case protected the phone from a 15 or so foot fall. Needless to say I put my phone in my pocket when I am boarding the plane now.

    Works BUT broke after 4 months!!
    I purchased for wife as gift and top plastic clip broke in 4 months! Even though warranty is 6 months, it took 2 weeks of calls and email to get them to agree to fix AND they are still charging me $6! Buyer beware.

    Works great for me
    I bought the combination skin cover, holster, and battery cover with reset hole for about $30 a few months ago. I have been extremely happy with this solution, especially the ability to reset the Treo through the skin and battery cover. I also like the belt clip that clicks into place allowing easy and secure adjustments.

    Just got yesterday, absolutely love it!
    Plenty of protection, easy fast access to phone, all keys ready to use. And plenty of grip-force holding the treo in the case, and the case on your belt, or pocket. Only downside is the skinned treo will not fit in the charging/hotsync dock at home. Oh well, overall, well worth it!
