Nutshell Options

Because at Nutshell we know every customer is a unique individual, we believe you should have the Nutshell that is just right for you.

We offer a range of finishes, styles and carry options to let you create the belt holster that will work perfectly for the way you live


Nutshell offers a range of premium leathers, with our two standard colors being Black and Tan.

The optional colors are Chocolate Brown, Crocodile finished Black and Crocodile finished Brown. We also offer a high-quality Russet Vegetan Natural leather that will take on a rich, tan brown finish over time and just keep looking better the more you use it.

Other colors are available but we only offer these in minimum order quantities of twenty. Contact us at for more information.

Note: Leather varies in color between different batches so these are representative but the actual color you receive could be slightly different.


We offer you a choice of three styles:

A: Full Flap
Closed with a secure safety shielded magnet or durable Velcro, our full flap holsters provide a discrete way to carry your Smartphone or other mobile technology.

Our Belt attachments have stood the test of time and will provide years of worry free service to deliver peace of mind every day.

A: Belt Clip
We offer a strong secure black steel belt clip that will accept belts up to 1.7" wide and comes with a black functional D-ring.
B: Belt Loop
We also offer a super-secure universal multi-way belt loop that also accepts belts up to 1.75" wide and lets you carry your device on your hip in the way that works best for you; vertically, horizontally or angled to keep your pants pocket free.

C: Plain - no clip or loop
Because we know some people prefer to protect their device in a Nutshell, but tuck it away in a bag, shoulder bag, satchel or purse, we offer you the choice of no belt attachment at all.


A:Shielded Magnet
A small magnet is securely clasped between two small metal plates that are embedded within the holster. Because the magnet is prevented from making physical contact with both plates by the leather and the lining, the amount of "Gauss' (the measure of magnetism) is very strong.The steel  plates also prevent any magnetic 'leakage' so that there is a very low level of 'Gauss' outside of the magnetic/ plate assembly.

B: Hook and Loop
We use genuine Velcro Hook and loop to provide an ultra-secure clasp for both the full flap and tab holster styles.


You can have text and logos laser engraved onto your Nutshell. When you select this option, let us know in the order notes what you want engraved, and where on the holster you would like it - front body, back, or flap. If you want a logo, please email us the logo file to



We offer both an elastic penloop (default option in black only) or a leather penloop (same color as body leather). If you would like a leather one, let us know in the notes above. For the leather penloop you will need the pen to have a clip, and let us know in the notes above what the diameter of the pen / stylus you are looking to hold is.

The elastic is better at holding stylus without clips and is more flexible.

Nutshell lets you add an elasticized front pocket to your Smartphone holster. This is a perfect way to safely carry those earbuds or other pieces of add-on equipment safely and securely. 


For the larger Nutshell's you can add an internal card pocket to hold a couple of business cards or credit cards.
