I love my Seidio Active Case for my Note2.
Been using it nearly 5 months now. And I drop my Note 2 at least twice a month - the Active case does its job very well - My Note2 still looks like new, no scratches, no broken screens.
The Note2 mounted in the Seidio Active Case still fits all the Samsung docking cradles - A big plus compared to Otterbox Defender, and i use the rear kickstand daily.
I purchased the Seidio Active Case with Holster direct from Seidio, as soon as it was available. I put the Holster on my belt on the left side - But the first time I sat in my car the seat belt mechanism sheered off the Holster's belt clip.
6 weeks ago, I saw that Seidio now offers a 4500mAh Battery for Note2, and while I chatted with Seidio Customer service to ask if the new battery fits in the Active case, I related my story about the Active Holster breaking the first day - and they sent me a free replacement Holster a week later.
Seidio Customer service excels! Highly recommended
