OP great review. PC, i agree. I work in a sheet metal shop, and move pretty fast. Always running into stuff, and i needed a longer battery life with a good case. My seido extended convert has withstood some pretty intense abuse! To say I'm satisfied with it is an understatement :icon_ banana:. I wear mine holstered, and it is perfect for what I do everyday. On another note, the extended HTC battery does give some pretty impressive battery life.
