As everybody knows, I typically review cases among other accessories. I have mentioned Seidio holsters and their universal fit with other cases, but pouches hasn't been my focus in the past. After seeing constant requests from people looking for pouches that are roomy enough to fit Note 2 in a case, I decided to explore this option. On a personal note, I'm not a fan of pouches, especially horizontal leather ones that look like a giant reading glasses case. When it comes to clipping Note 2 in a case to a belt, it's gotta be something decent looking and not bulky. This Zizo Heavy Duty Vertical Pouch is IT!!!
Even so it's classified as heavy duty, it's actually very light weight at only 62g. Dimensions are approximately 95mm x 150mm and it's actually relatively slim. The material/texture is heavy duty cross-stitched construction nylon, actually very nice quality. The inner back part of the pouch, the side that will be in contact with phone's screen, is made out of soft micro-fiber material. The flap of the case is equipped with a strong velcro to hold it securely closed. Walls of the pouch are expandable, made out of heavy duty elastic material. That's actually a perfect solution for universal fitment of this pouch with any case. One of the walls has an extra loop so you can either put a pen or put a keychain ring, etc. The back of the pouch has a belt loop (about 50 mm wide), threaded with heavy duty double stitching. On top of that you have a solid one piece metal belt clip, very solid construction. And if that's not enough, you also have a small metal loop to hook up lanyard. Pretty much they thought of every possible way to carry this pouch, not too mention that you can even put it in your pocket. Although being thin, this pouch is actually nicely padded and will offer a protection in addition to the case you already have on.
And speaking of cases, this pouch fits them ALL!!! I tested it with Zerolemone 9300mAh/TPU, UAG, Casemate Tough, Casemate Pop, Seidio CONVERT, and Otterbox Defender, each one documented with a picture below. Between these cases and monster ZL battery - pretty much everything is covered. By heavy duty nature of this case, I would HIGHLY recommend it for anybody who is planning to use it outdoors, hiking, biking, on a trip, etc. But even for everyday use it will make a great accessory to carry your Note 2 with your case inside of this pouch. Even so elastic sides of the case don't go all the way down to the bottom, I still think this pouch will protect your phone even if you get into a rain where the nylon shell should keep it dry. Obviously, you can use it with a naked N2 as well, but I think it's a Perfect and Secure solution to carry N2 with ANY case on your belt!!! Definitely a must have accessory in my book.

I picked this pouch up and I'm very pleased with it. I have the Zerolemon 9300mah battery and as twister6 says, the pouch fits it perfectly. I usually just put the phone in my pocket but there are a few times I can't put it there so this is a great, inexpensive solution.
The one I have - I use it every weekend with my ZeroLemon battery. I actually put a keyring through a side loop, and have lanyard with my keys going to my pocket. This way I'm no the go with everything intact to the pouch including phone and keys. Belt clip keeps it secure on the belt, but I do have to mention for those who are planning to use it every single day and in outdoor situations - I can't comment how long it will last. As a back up you can always switch to belt loop. Beside, the pouch is cheap anyway.
Was wondering do you think it will fit my knock-off Griffin survivor case?
Just tried it. The fit is very tight and only possible because of elastic stretchy sides; but I literally had to push it in and that makes it very hard to take out. I would NOT recommend it for use with survivor knock off.
