A couple weeks ago we made contact with Seidio. Best known for their high quality smartphone accessories & diehard fans (I being one as well). This time Seidio let us know they had a brand new ACTIVE Combo for us to check out and I couldn’t be more excited!
The ACTIVE Combo for BlackBerry Bold 9900-9930 by Seidio comes packed with both the ACTIVE case & the ACTIVE Holster! Both can be purchased separately for $59.90 ($29.95 each) or together in the ACTIVE Combo for $49.95, saving almost $10.00.
ACTIVE™ case ° Overall thickness of only 2.2 mm ° Interior casing made from impact absorbing polymer and exterior skeleton provides extra protection at impact points ° Easy to put in and pull out of your pocket or purse and grooves for easy gripping ° Compatible with ACTIVE™ holster
ACTIVE Holster™ ° Felt-lined holster with face-in design keeps your BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 safe ° Unique spring clip lifts for quick access and easy removal ° Adjustable swivel belt clip with 7 rotating angles ° Magnet in holsters retain BlackBerry “sleeper function” ° For use with ACTIVE™ case only
This would be my 3rd Seidio case in the past 6 months, first for the Bold 9930. After a Christmas day-like unwrapping, I was pleasantly surprised by the tiny details. Cut-outs around the mic, speaker and the rivets at the base. The exterior skeleton grips the impact absorbing polymer like a claw. I’ve found it built quite well and the 2 piece architecture makes for easy removal of my Bold.
Out of the box – you discover 2 packages, one contains the ACTIVE case [2 pieces], the other is your ACTIVE Holster [1 piece]. As I said previously the ACTIVE case is very user friendly to install and remove, combined with the ACTIVE Holster Seidio proves why they sell this at a semi discounted rate.. reason: they’re much better together. The case glides right into the Holster and the spring clip locks it safely in place. I’ve used both in the Holster and in the pocket just about equally.
Road tested – the ACTIVE case has gotten about 7 drops out of me. This is a very high number for me to be honest. I don’t know if it was because I’ve been so busy over the last 2 weeks between DevCon and family affairs or if it’s just plain ol’ klutziness. Either way it’s gotten to the point where I don’t tense up as much when I see it drop in this case. The impact absorbing polymer case underneath is the real soldier here. I imagine 4 wheel tires on a Jeep when I think about this case on my Bold 9930. It has a medium size with a huge strength. The design is attractive and feel inside my hand is very comfortable. The only real issue I’ve had with this case is the side button. All the side buttons are easily accessible but the polymer is thinnest at the side button, making accidental presses quite common. But it’s a small price to pay for all the comfort, style and dependability.
Seidio emphasizes why users like myself and many others have become “fanboys” of their brand with the ACTIVE line of cases and Holsters. We choose the Sapphire Blue, but they are available in a multitude of colors including Black, Amethyst, Sapphire Blue, and Burgundy. If your tight on money, but at least would love to enjoy this case you can do so for just $29.95 here. Same goes for the Holster, Seidio sells that piece for $29.95 alone if your looking to add it to your current ACTIVE case here.
- Easy to install and remove
- Attractive case with quality details throughout
- High level of protection in and out of the Holster
