Default Holsters for Note 3

I've always used a holster with my phones, mainly because I carry so much junk in my pockets that I don't have room for a phone. With my current phone, a GNex, and previous OG Droid, I finally settled for the Seidio Surface holster. It would hold the phones even with TPU cases, the Seidio Extended battery on the GNex with TPU case, and finally now even the Zero Lemon battery. As often gets mentioned, however, the plastic clip seems to break on these holsters if you even look cross-eyed at them. I'm on my fourth one for my GNex, and I always keep a spare just in case. I think I'm keeping Seidio in business.

Part of my problem admittedly is that my car seats have high side bolsters, and if I forget to slide the holster toward the middle on my belt when I'm getting in the car, I will have have destroyed another clip on the Surface holster.

What are the holsters that others have had good luck with? I do like the the swivel clip as on the Seidios as opposed to just belt loops or clips, but that's just me.

Since the Note 3 will be similar to the Note 2 in dimensions except for height, do those coming from a Note 2 have any special favorites? I recognize these can't be use for the Note 3 because of the different dimensions, but hopefully the vendors with good Note 2 holsters will also make good Note 3 ones.

I just used the generic XL Verizon holster. It has a metal clip, and can be twisted at various degrees of angle incl. horizontal and vertical. However, I doubt the Note 3 will fit it.

I'm afraid you & I will be searching for an even larger holster with a metal clip for our new phones. I'll check the VZW site

I too found the generic VZW holster best. Except I like just the case half of it, because it has a slide out stand built in the case. Great for setting the phone down on a flat surface to watch video.

I currently have it on my GN2

This is actually pretty nice. I've always liked the pouch concept. Nice way to keep your phone naked, but protected too.

Can anyone here confirm that the Note 3 will, in fact, FIT into all these Note 2 holsters? I remember reading somewhere that the N3 as slightly smaller dimensions than the 2, but I forgot where...

Here is the Phone Arena comparison of the dimensions of the Note 3 and 2. Based on this, the Note 3 has slightly less width and depth, but virtually the same height.

Turns out the Vega holsters guy is still going those Italian leather shoulder holsters and there is one for the Note 3. He needs to do something about updating his web site. So mine should be here tomorrow or the day after just in time for the phone. (I can live with the being laughed at.) GBP 47

I'll try and remember to photograph it once it gets here.

Thanks for this info -- the Vega holsters look to be really high quality, certainly some of the best I've ever seen. I've sent them an email regarding shipping Note 3 holsters to the US. I probably would get a belt model, however --here in the US if someone saw you from the front or back with that shoulder rig there would be no question that you were "packing heat"!

I think he may have a US agent. And yes the quality is excellent. I've had a couple I beat up for 10-15 years and they are still just fine.

Indeed. I worked the 2004 US General Election wearing one and the reaction was as you said. But nobody shot me. These guys also make gun shoulder holsters mainly for Police forces so not so strange.

I may get charged with carrying a concealed Note 3.

You may have to get a license for a CCP (Concealed Carry Phone), as opposed to a CCW....

I did just see contact numbers for Germany and Austria outside of the UK, but as you say the website may be a little outdated. A US outlet would be great.

It turned up today, before I got my Note 3. You can get in black or in tan and I'd forgotten each one comes with an alternate belt clip. (The rule is mm.)

Simon, many thanks for the heads-up on this holster. Do you have your Note 3 yet? I'm really curious to see how well it fits this holster, and especially to hear if it will fit with any sort of case on it.

It will likely fit with a case but it's pretty snug. I'm going to try to do that picture later today. Lovely new-leather smell. (That's the shoulder holster, not the phone. No leather on this phone.)

I realise I've actually been using these holsters for about 18 years.

I went ahead and got this one, knowing that it the N2 fits, the N3 will.

I know Simon is all over that sporty shoulder harness, but my phone hangs on my hip

Literally just got home from my open house and to my surprise I found that my vertical pouch has arrived! Sure, I don't have my n3 yet, but my n2 fits in it beautifully. Just another piece in the anticipation puzzle.

Great pictures. The workmanship on that holster looks to first-rate. If it fits an N3 with a simple TPU or Spigen Neo Hybrid case I'll have to have one. Although I would almost always wear it on my hip, I may just have to spend the little extra to have the option of either the shoulder or hip!

I certainly never use a belt clip. For me, it's far too risky. That sucker will get banged in week one and it will also be inconvenient much of the time, what with all the places my body gets to taking pictures. Not even convenient in a car for me.

How cool is this phone? I'm fixing a friend's car in the pouring rain. Note 3 is snug in its shoulder holster and it rings. I tell it to answer the call and we have a conversation in a deluge with the phone still safe and dry.

Don't try this at home.

Hey "the_chief" That's a good looking case... do you know if the note 3 with lets say a neo hybrid shell on it would fit in this case?

Hi Alex!

I'm not sure of the heft of the case you're talking about, but the Note 3 with S-view cover fits fine with some room to spare front to back. A Note 3 with a case would be a tight fit, but it may very well work

Only one way to find out!

I'm going to be finding out. If it doesn't, I'll be getting a slightly larger holster. But I anticipate it will fit. (I have a UAG on order.)

How's about a simple belt holster...

I went with the Seidio Surface Case (with kickstand) and belt Holster combo.



Note - Seidio's customer stinks big time, just get the product and hope you'll never have to deal with those ass-clowns. They said thet don't price match, so I email them a copy of their low price guarantee... "kcuf -em", I got the damn caes and hiolster.

I'm an on my belt guy. I have always added belt loops to my leather belt holsters because they are much more secure.
I picked this up a couple weeks ago and the quality is very good. Yes it does work with a slim case (Neo Hybrid).
My only gripe is the magnet closure. I would have added two under the leather magnets instead of this powerful single magnet. The magnet is very strong, much stronger than is needed.

I've always used the seidio active cases with holster. I have the active case for my IPad and the active case with holster for my Galaxy Nexus. I ordered the Surface case combo as the active is "coming soon".. I've had good luck with Seidio, but never had to deal with their service. Had a clip break previously, but it was out of warranty. Seidio does make a quality product, been happy with the performance, fit and finish. They're a bit high in price, but like everything you get what you pay for.........

THX for the link. I've got a nice vertical clip-on leather holster (for pocket or belt), yet, as some have stated,I don't feel a sense of security using it clipped on the belt.

I remembered your post,bookmarked the link & finally took the time to get a good look & ordered one for myself :

There is a vertical pouch available that will accommodate the NOTE 3 w/the OTTERBOX Case (or any case for that matter) :
