HP iPAQ 19xx series PDA
Composed of heavy duty black textured plastic, the iHolster does double duty
as both a belt clip and a screen protector for your PDA. According to the
iHolster website, "Each iHolster1900 is hand made (not vacuum formed) from
durable, impact resistant Kydex to provide a snug and secure fit for your iPaq."
The iHolster measures 4.5" long x 3" wide x 0.6" thick (not counting the
button). It weighs only 1.1 ounces. Soft loopy fabric is attached to key areas
of the case to allow your iPAQ to slide in without scratching the silver painted
plastic. The iHolster is meant to be used with your 1900 lying with screen
facing inside, and with its back facing the world.
The iHolster is held to your belt or waistband with a stiff plastic
UtraClip that is not
only held on with what appears to be 3M tape, but also a rivet. That button is
not coming off! The belt clip has to be rotated and a button depressed for the
clip to be installed or removed, so it is very secure. Moreover, the plastic lip
at the bottom of the clip should keep a belt or waistband’s material from
sliding out unintentionally.
Once the iPAQ 1900 is in place, the iHolster securely cradles it, offering
superb screen protection. Open access is still available to the top and sides of
the PDA and the back is left unencumbered.
Steve allowed me to take a picture of him wearing the iHolster to give you an
idea of what it looks like when worn on the hip. I would actually like to see
the iHolster offered without a belt clip, because as a sliding screen protector
I think it would be perfect for a multitude of PDAs that people might like to
carry in their pockets, purses or gear-bags.
The iHolster is a simple sleeve that does exactly what it is meant to do –
securely holds the iPAQ to your waist while protecting the screen. If you are
more concerned with keeping your PDA handy than keeping it inside a case, then
this may be the ideal solution for you.
There is also an iHolster available for the
Extremely well made of molded plastic with loopy material to protect iPAQ’s
Belt clip is not only stuck on, but is riveted on as well
No protection for iPAQ when it is removed from holster, so be careful!
