    I use all the docks so I cant get some fancy case, plus never been a fan. Always have had leather hip holsters. Where can I get a really good high quality leather one? I have the BS one I got with my package deal from Costco but its ghetto and I need the BEST for this baby haha!

    Thanks!

    I'm looking for the same thing. You might want to check out:

    Motorola Droid Bionic Leather Case Vertical Removable Two Clips Black
    They also sell on Amazon for a little higher price.

    It's the Cellet "Leather Case Vertical Removable Two Clips Black"

    Pros:
    • Belt Clips are removable and interchangeable. The swivel clip looks like it will hold up for a while. Haven't used the fixed clip, but it looks like it does the job if that's what you're looking for.
    • At least "average" construction. Single stitched, it should hold up for a year or two. The leather looks moderately shiny and very smooth, which means that it is the cheapest, most processed leather you can get. That's exactly what I would expect and it's what you get in just about all these consumer products, so it is really an observation and not a criticism.
    • The magnet clasp is reasonably strong, even better than the one on my genuine blackberry case. Phone should not be sliding out on it's own.
    • The price: I paid $9.99 plus $4 - $5 shipping. Of course, it's on sale now for $5.99. that's my life story.

    Cons:
    • The swivel clip (which is why I bought it) has a quick release button to drop the case from part of the belt clip. That button gets depressed by my fat rolls, I mean, "love handles" when I sit in the car. Working on this problem at the gym, now, but the solution is not a quick one. So, this is pretty much a guarantee that the phone will be lost. Skinny people may have better luck.
    • It is snug with the standard battery. While the inside feels smooth and has a very thin velour feel to it, all you need is one speck of sand to get in there and you get to test the gorilla glass. Definitely get a screen protector.
    • I haven't tried it yet, but there's no way the extended battery will fit.
    • Because of the snug fit, it is a two-handed operation to remove the phone from the holster.
    • The sides of the case are a nice stretch material that looks like it will hold up. Unfortunately, this blocks the micro-USB and HDMI ports, so you can't charge the phone in its case.

    So, if anyone has any better solutions, I'm all ears. There is a dearth of classy looking cases out there. It looks like I'll just get the ugly Verizon BioHOC holster/case and where it like a geek badge of honor. Yuk.
