Default Belt clip holder for otterbox note 3?

Looking for a leather pouch that will hold a Galaxy Note 3 that has an Otterbox case on it. Something to put on my belt. The Otterbox will make the phone bigger and I don't want to pay for a pouch that exactly fits the Note 3 only to find it won't fit it with the Otterbox case on it.

I don't care if it looks crazy big on my belt. I don't want to put the phone in my pocket all day.

Leather with a magnetic flap would be perfect.

The otterbox defender comes with its own belt clip.

I have yet to find a leather pouch with belt clip that can swallow the GIGANTIC Otterbox Defender for the GN 3. I think that you will be FORCED to use the clip provided by Otterbox. This is why i abandoned the Defender. My Commuter arrives tomorrow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to have luck with the leather hip cases that I already own. The Defender is a BEAST.

My buddy found a pleather pouch at the local flea market that fits the defender on the N3. I don't think it was even in a retail pack when he bought it but he did mention it was only like 9 bucks. I don't think I can get the brand off of it but next time I see him I'll try.

He asked me if I wanted one when he was there but I like using the defender holster so I said no.

I can tell you it's f'in huge. It looks like he's wearing a briefcase.

The otterbox I bought didn't come with one. I saw them with the clip and it looks cheap like if I snag the phone on something the clip would break off easily. Plus I want front face protection while I'm walking around.

And I did google this. I found many leather pouches with magnetic flaps that were made for the Note 3 but I'm assuming the size just fits the Note 3 perfectly. Meaning with the otterbox case on, it wouldn't fit anymore.

There's a case store at a local mall I can go to I guess. They are roughly double the price though from anything on ebay or amazon. At least I can test them out and find one that fits.

Bought an otterbox commuter case also from iPhone Cases 5s 5c 5 4S 4, iPad Cases, Samsung Galaxy Cases, iPod Cases, Kindle Cases. Wanted my favorite sports team logo on the back of it and they are the only company that can do it on otterbox's. Plus they had a 20% off sale going on which made them cheaper than a plain otterbox

Look at the Cellet case for the Note 2/3. I have used one for first my Note 2 then my Note 3. It is roomy enough to hold the Otterbox. I keep mine in my pocket and have not used the belt clip but it comes with two removable clips.

I picked this up and am very pleased.

No clip, you must slide your belt through the loop. This means you cannot knock your case off.
The vertical case will fit your N3 with the Defender. Model Cel9-V.

I just bought this:

Amazon.com: Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Note II Horizontal Leather Case with Magnetic closure with belt clip and belt loops (Plus Size will Fit w/ Otterbox Commuter on) + Cell Phone Antenna Booster: Cell Phones & Accessories

Per the reviews people are saying it's a little too big for the Note 2. Since the note 2 is roughly the same size as the note 3 then I'm assuming it will be a good fit.

Bought two of them because they really look cheap. In case one tears.

Look up pouches for the Galaxy Mega! It's way bigger than the Note 3 and your Note 3 (with otterbox) will most likely fit into one

The pouches came in today that I ordered off the link above.

They are pretty much standard pouches. Big enough for the Note 3 also. My otterbox isn't in yet (next week sometime since it's custom graphics). Right now without a case the Note 3 has plenty of room inside. It moves around inside there is so much room. I don't think I have to worry when my otterbox arrives about space.

Friend at work said it looked like I was carrying a briefcase on my belt though. Haha.

That's the one that dontpanicbobby, myself and a few others have been using. It's been fine, hasn't fallen off my belt yet.

Yeah I'm starting a Project Manager/Engineer for worksites here in the Spring so I need a good belt clip case.

Yeah I wanted something that would completely cover up the phone. So when I'm in the rain, it doesn't get wet. Plus no one will be able to see the phone which I like also.

Plus I like the fake leather feel

Yeah it's a pretty good case, I have it now, 2 of them actually haha. We will see how it goes, I am kind of wondering if I want to keep it on my belt because it's so large.

My otterbox commuter finally arrived yesterday. Still fits perfectly in this pouch. Not tight at all.

Overall I'm happy now.
