Those who know me, know I love my Bandolier. I keep upgrading mine every time I get a new iPhone, that’s how much I love it. Especially now that they offer a selection of Bandolier zip pouches that attach to the back, to help you carry more stuff with less hassle.

What’s special about the Bandolier, as compared with other crossbody phone cases, is that you can use it for calls, photos, or the all important endless Instagram scroll without having to take it out of the case. No snaps, zippers or pouches — just a protective, stylish case with a shoulder strap, leaving you hands free for a cocktail in your left, while shaking hands with your right.

(Or you know, skiing. Or walking. Or pushing your kid on the swing with both hands.)

If you prefer to carry less stuff, like maybe just business cards, or a credit card and a few bills, the Hailey side slot card case (below) is worth a look. It keeps the lines pretty sleek, since the case is built into the phone holder, unlike the pouch which is an additional attachment.

There are so many cool new styles for the iPhone 8 plus that I own, but they make them for all iPhone models from 6 on, as well as Samsung Galaxy phones.

The new chunky denim Bandolier phone case is pretty cool too, if that’s more your style.

Oh, and if you happen to own an iPhone X, XR, or XS Max? The Angela Bandolier in a limited edition snakeskin design is everything. Hey, a girl can’t survive on black accessories alone, even in NYC.
