Excepitonal quality and value.


From Davo

from San Jose, CA

I rarely write reviews because I believe products "speak" for themselves. Companies that produce products that exemplify quality, value, and durability excel and have long, prosperous lives. Hence, the 5.11 Tactical Company.

I've ordered a number of different 5.11 Tactical products and every one is exceptional.

1. Their quality control is superior regardless where the item is made.
2. Their customer service reps (Matthew in particular) embody the spirit and company mission to provide the best products and service available now and in the future.
3. Their shipping performance is unbelievably efficient and fast and this includes their RMA returns process.

5.11 Tactical is an All-Around-Champion and my go-to tactical gear of choice. As a side note, I know it's coincidental but, UBL was killed 5.1.11 (U.S.A. date).

Way too small for modern smart phones


From J.S.

from Tampa, FL

The C5 case is a little out of date. This case would have been good for a blackberry or older iPhone or Android. It is not for a modern, larger smart phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I know that is one of the largest smart phones, but it doesn't even come close to fitting. However, the quality of this item is typical 5.11. I like this case nevertheless, so I will find some other use for it.

Great Case


From Jas

from Jackson, MS

I manage 50 HVAC technicians iphones. No clip or holster can hold up to all the places the tech's go. I've bought 6 holsters a couple of months ago and the tech's love them. It's the best case I've come across so far. I will be outfitting all my tech's with this case.

Just as Expected from 5.11 products


From Marty

from Cowtown, TX

Just as most said on this site, it works with the IPhone 4 and Otter box perfectly. Had to let the strap out all the way, but it will loosen upon use I'm sure. I bought 2 of them. 1 for my belt and 1 for my Jeep Safari Doors, or my Bug Out Bags with M.O.L.L.E.

In short these are exactly what I needed.

Great phone/PDA case


From WB

from Sacramento, CA

Quality construction like all 5.11 Tactical products. Purchased to hold my Samsung Galaxy Note. Not gonna happen. The Note is just too large. The case will fit an iPhone size phone or PDA. Will have to re-purpose the case for something else.

Built to Last


From Smokey

from SW Pennsylvania

Worth the money I have three the oldest over 3 yrs old and still functional.

I would buy this for personal use


From AZ Net Tech

from Northern AZ

Very sturdy case.
I use this for a work phone.
The ON-Call phone that gets passed around to the different techs so it must be strong.



From GreenEyesMike

from NC

Needs updated!
Strap will not fit iPhone 5 barley iPhone 3GS with Otterbox.

Case needs updated!! Hello!!!

Case and strap: Case maybe a little taller?
Strap more length

Love these cases! Protecting the iPhones for several years!

No more cell phones down the toilet!


From Steve

from Columbia, SC

Fed up with cell phone holders that release into toilets, onto floorboards of your vehicle, onto parking lots? Yeah, me too. This is the answer. Positive retention, no Velcro to wear our, proper fit on an iPhone. Proper design, well made.

Excellent Fit


From Jeff

from Colorado Springs

This is the first tactical cell phone holder I have found that fits my iPhone with Otter case.
