    Seems strange to me that nobody makes a thin flip cover that has a belt clip for horizontal use. Have found a couple with plastic swivel clips but I'll never get another of those.

    If anyone knows where I can get such a cover--not a pouch--please point me in the right direction. I've Google it, searched Amazon and eBay, and several retailers.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Depending on the size of the phone, one of Walmart's generic horizontal cases may do.

    If you identify what phone you are using we will move your question to the forum where it is discussed.

    I'm using a universal horizontal pouch now...have never seen a universal flip cover.
    Sounds like am oxymoron--a flip should be a tight fit with aligned Camera holes.

    I have three phones and they are all different sizes. The starting point is to identify what phone you are talking about.

    I have 2 so I'm looking for mfr. & model line--not a phone-specific cover. I can take the last step on my own.
    It appears to me that nobody makes such a thing for any phone.

    I didn't want to return to a plastic case/holster but unless I make my own flip out of spiffy duct tape...

    I have found that cases are very device specific. I would love to have a leather slip case for my Droid Maxx but cannot find one. I have one form my Droid Bionic. There is one advertised for the Droid Razr Maxx HD but it is too short to totally cover the screen.

    So ... my suggestion is to look at possible device specific solutions.

    I definitely have but found nothing. That's why I'm casting a wider net now.

    You can check out my signature link, also a sticky in this Accessories section, so you can see an amount of cases I have tested :) I never seen or heard of anything like you are describing. Perhaps there is no demand for it?

    But nevertheless, if you can somehow remove a clip from your pouch case and use a strong double sided 3M tape to attach it to your flip case cover, that will do a trick?

    It might but I gave up and bought a Seidio Surface. Going back to plastic :-\
    It's the slimmest belt mount that offers some protection and can be worn horizontally that I could find.
