    Subject says it all - curious if there is a holster which will work with the Otterbox Commuter case?

    Thanks in advance.

    Someone posted on this board about a company coming out with a larger case that should fit a DroidX with Commuter shell. I am also looking for a holster for this setup. The case I bought from eBay fits but I need a shoe horn to get it out.

    Here is a link to the Nite Ize company's website with the Large Size Sideways Holster. It is available 2/1/11 and says it is 5.5" x 3" x 1.7" which should fit this setup with ease.

    It will fit almost in the Holster case combo, I am going to take a heat gun and try to warm up the sides and bottoms of the holster to fit the commuter.

    BUMP

    Someone has to know of a holster that will fit this phone (with my specs, haha).

    I have the DX with ext. battery and a commuter on it..a holster is a must. I'm almost ready to go back to my BB 9650 just for face-in holster.

    I would have to think that my setup is a fairly popular one and a holster is an appealing accessory for at least some users..where is it?

    PS.
    Just to rule out options as we move along: I purchased and tried the holster that comes with Platinum Case for Droid X from Best Buy...and that didn't work with the aforementioned setup..seems like I'm SOL.

    Honestly dude, I think i'd rather change cases or deal with no holster before I went back to a crappy Blackberry....just because it wont hang from your belt :icon_eek:

    Haha, ok..maybe I was exaggerating :blackdroid:a bit. But, its very obnoxious at times carrying this large phone around with nowhere convenient to put it. Taking it in and out of a bag is annoying and so is having it in your pocket.

    I think a holster, especially for a phone such as this, is important. But, hey, this is just my opinion. I thought more would share the same sentiment.

    Get the seidio innocase rugged with holster. The fact that it came with a holster designed to work with case is the main reason I bought it...and I love it!

    I bought the rugged before the commuter was released, this is personal opinion, but I HATED the rugged.........and I love the commuter. The rugged is WAY bigger.

    I get the whole bulk deal as a con for those who like to carry in their pocket, but that becomes kinda void with holster carry.

    It's all personal opinion, doesn't become void at all for me, I couldn't even stand to hold the thing, nor did I like the design. But that's me.

    I just ordered the nite ize large sideways case. Hopefully it fits my DX with an otter box commuter case on it. I will post and let everyone know as soon as I get it.

    The Nite Ize Sideways LARGE case arrived at my house today. I did not get the leather one because I just wanted to try it out and I didnt want to spend the extra money in case it did not fit.

    The Droid X with OtterBox Commuter case on it fits in this case perfect!!!!

    The case looks well constructed and has a large 2" belt holster clip that does NOT rotate so the phone will be in a fixed horizontal position. The flap is velcro not magnetic so no worries about car dock mode coming on to drain your battery.
    I would recommend this holster to anyone who is looking for a holster that fits a DX with OtterBox Commuter shell.

    Also you cant beat it at $11 something plus shipping.

    Ohh I like! Dislike the Kraken Holster, but love the case, looking for something like this, wonder if it will fit the Kraken case?? is it a tight fit? I ask because Im sure the Kraken is thicker than Commuter..

    Thanks for your review. I'm now a lil curious. I was hoping you may could touch on a few things for me.

    I recently purchased my first DX and with working in public safety, I'm scared to death of damaging this phone. I'm looking for a belt case that I can fit my phone and otterbox in. The main thing is that I need a fail-proof belt holster as possible. The otterbox seems to offer reasonable protection while in use, but I need something more secure for a holster than the plastic belt clip is has.

    I was wondering if you could take a look at a post I made last night, and compare with what I'm looking for to what it is you have. You'll find the post here.

    I would prefer a vertical pouch since I have a radio and surefire flashlight to carry to keep my belt space to a minimum, but am always open to suggestions on what may work.

    I've learned from past experience of loosing phones on wreck scenes that these clip on belt holsters can be a PITA with keeping up with your phone.

    Thanks ahead for your opinion.

    Kenny

    Janet my DX fits in the case snug but the elastic sides should stretch to fit a phone with a slightly larger case I'm sure. I've never used the Kraken but it looks a bit smaller than the OtterBox defender but larger than my OtterBox Commuter. If I had to guess I would say it would fit your setup as well.

    Ken, the holster looks and feels well made and if I actually have one complaint it is that I have trouble getting the holster OFF of my belt loop. When I am wearing my scrubs it also finds the elastic seam and hooks under it so sometimes it doesn't come off easily without me pulling on the holster before removing it. I guess it isn't a bad problem to have as I would hate for it to come off easily. The case does resemble the one you posted about but this is the first time I have purchased a Nite Ize case so I am in evaluation mode now.

    I will post If I have any unforeseen problems with the case.

    Ill try to answer any more questions you may have.
