Speed and convenience
The combination of the holster and SURFACE slide-on protective cover provide excellent convenience and speed for carrying/using the phone, with very good (but not perfect) security and protection of the phone while in the clip. Nothing is faster for getting your phone out of a holder than the Seidio clip, I remove and replace by feel with 100% success in one quick movement, and the clip is sized to hold the Torch properly WITH the SURFACE protective cover in place on the phone, something that is hard to do with other protective covers when combined with a separate carrying case.
Protection and Security
Pros: With the screen turned inward when in the clip-type holster, and the slide-on SURFACE proctective cover in place, my Torch2 has never been damaged despite numerous bumps. The SURFACE also does a great job of protecting the phone when dropped. I've dropped my phone on concrete and pavement a number of times and the SURFACE has always protected it fully, even though nothing covers the actual screen. The SURFACE wraps around all edges/corners sufficiently to provide protection and raise the screen off the pavement just enough to protect it, while the fit is tight enough to minimize the increase in total phone size. Comes off easily when you need to change batteries (a continuing advantage of BB vs. iPhone BTW), but only comes off when you want it to, never by accident. The polymer is really tough, and survives drops on corners of the device just fine, and there is full access to all controls and ports through the SURFACE case when in place (though I wish the headphone jack openning was a little bigger, as some of my headphone jack barrels are a bit too big for the openning... will probablly just fix this with dremmel).
Cons (minus 1 star): The security and protection are not perfect, however, and I acknowledge the points the other reviewer made about there not being a true LOCK holding the phone in the holster, it's just that this has not been much of an issue for me. I have been able to knock my phone out of the clip under extreme circumstances, like pushing up hard against a protruding door just right such that it catches the clip at the top of the phone and pulls it open, and I did finally break the belt clip after a year of hard use by bending over nearly double to reach something on the floor of my car while catching the phone/holster against a seat belt fastener, though I like the combination so much that I just ordered a replacement. These issues are rare, and so for everyday use, I still use and recommend the combination.
For extreme situations where phone is at greater risk (like boating in my case), I do use an even more secure but less convenient leather belt case with magnetic flap, but for regular walk around use, it's the SURFACE Combo for me.
Recommended for everyday use - outstanding quality, convenience, speed of access to phone, with very good protection.
