One thing about the belt clip that Speck uses on its full-size cases -- it's a "standard" clip, the same one as is used on lots of mobile phone and PDA cases, etc. It's pretty sturdy, but if you break it, you can get a replacement at a mobile phone kiosk, from Amazon, etc. Also, since the clip is designed to be readily detachable from the nub, you can have multiple clips in use. For example, you could have one you use on your daily-wear leather belt, another you keep on the waistband of your backpack, etc.

I haven't yet met a belt clip I can't break -- I've trashed two iSkin clips, an STM Cocoon clip (not replaceable - very bad), and a Speck ToughSkin clip. Once I figured out that I don't have to go to Speck for replacements, I concluded that this is the best of all clips for the heavy user.
