Nite Ize Rugged Case for BlackBerry Torch 9800 Review
User: Shaun Stevenson, Nov 29, 2010
Pros: The case protects the phone rather well. I am rather ruff on my phone cases and this seems to stand the test. It has taken a few good blows with no effect to the phone.
Cons: The case is rather bulky, this is because the phone is rather wide and the case seems to amplify that dimention. The magnet function on the case does not seem to work through the otter box case that I have on my BlackBerry Torch 9800. Hard to slide on an
The phone case is good for someone who is active and on the move. It fits a 1 7/8" wide 1/4" thick belt. There are 8 easy click positions that are good to use when moving from the standing to sitting position. It is rather hard to pull the case off a belt quickly. The phone is open to the elements when in the case. This case does not have drain holes if it gets wet. Elastic band inside the case is great for holding extra dollars or other small pieces of paper or plastic.

Reasons I love this case:
- Great clip
- Rugged case
- Supports sleeper function
- Secure enclosure
- Great company
I have only 2 very small complaints. The most serious is that I had the place where the clip attaches to the case break but one e-mail to Nite Ize and I had a new case sent to me in the mail. The other is simply that you cannot open this case stealthily (i.e. in a meeting) but I believe the security of the velcro flap is worth this small detail.

When I ordered this case, I was looking for a case that would solve a few issues I had with the original case.
1. I wanted a case that used a more secure closing method than the standard magnetic flap because Ive had issues with those sliding open while doing things such as getting in and out of vehicles.
2. I wanted a case with a clip that looked strong and simple enough to not break.
3. I wanted a case with a clip that wouldnt have a large portion sticking above my belt. As a rather large guy, the clips on the case that came with my Tour dug uncomfortably into my side.
Other things that went into consideration were that it supported sleeper function and was top load but could be spun sideways. The only thing I will say is that the clip is not terribly easy to get on and off but overall I consider that a good thing as it keeps it securely on my side which is worth the small hassle with taking it off.
Great , except clip

Pros: durable, good fit and size for phone with a cover
Cons: clip is hard to get off
I really like this clip, seems very durable, and there is no way the phone will fall out. I ride a horse and want something to keep the phone secure. Only complaint the clip is so secure I can barely get it off ! It does not open wide enough to clear the little ledge, so it takes me forever to get it off.. well, guess I wont loose it .
