There is an unwritten rule when it comes to cell phones: never wear the hip case no matter the circumstance.  Simply put there is just no way to justify this aesthetic blemish you’re objectifying the world to.  Of course, exceptions can be made.  Take for instance the cable man or just about any “blue collar” worker.  But just because you install floor boards and lay concrete, that doesn’t mean you should be totally devoid of any sense of style.

The Skinth Magnum is what every handy man needs at their hip.  The $55 accessory is handmade from 1000D PU coated Cordura nylon, which means it should be balls out tough.  The main pocket is large enough for both an iPhone and Leatherman MUT.  Fear not, though, for the main pocket is divided in two, so you won’t have to worry about your smartphone’s glass facade.  There is also a set of side tube pockets, fit for a small flash light or a very short pen.  And if those still don’t satiate your pocket needs, you can fit it with a “wide array” of options for some extra scratch, ranging from magnetic snap closures to variety of clips.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
