I hesitated buying this as I wasn't sure that it would be comfortable to wear or suit my needs. Being a belt pouch it has to be comfortable standing, sitting or driving etc. It's fine to wear though because it sits centred on the belt and doesn't droop. It's also made of solid, stiff leather and slides round your waist easily to adjust its position. I like to wear mine moving it from the front to the side as necessary. It is well made and looks like it will last a lifetime. It is also simple to open and close one-handed and being stiff with a wide opening flap, taking things out and putting things in is easy. For me it holds a passport and an iPhone 5 in it's own leather case, (you will have to measure your own phone). I've also got a decent sized pen knife and a pen in it. There is a small amount of depth left say for credit cards but I keep my credit cards separate in another smaller belt pouch because of the magnetic clasp on the phone pouch. (Magnets are not a good idea beside credit cards or anything else with a magnetic strip!) The pouch that I was sent is slightly different to the illustrated one. Instead of the small stitched leather bridge on the front flap through which the main strap passes, the front flap is simply slotted. It does the same job. It works for me. I'm very pleased with it and other people have made positive comments about it's quality. I'll be using it a lot. I know that it was relatively expensive but time, durability and utility should outweigh any initial cost. And it's a thing of beauty.
