    I am currently using it with cruzer lite tpu case (Andy android ) with the extended battery & back. I also have the other cruzer lite cases plus the boxwave uni- color? case. The boxwave only fits with standard battery tho. Plenty of room.

    Thanks man. Guess I should order one up. I have that same case as well as the diztronic rev 3.

    Hope some others come out as well. But for the price, awesome!

    I really like my new Seidio Active case. It gets all the lint out of my pocket too.

    This volume rocker has been my favorite. But i dont like the location. How i grip my phone to press the power button causes me to press the volume rocker at the same time.

    ^This! I totally neglected to mention this in my mini review and was meaning to edit it and add that tidbit. It definitely is a lint magnet, so that might deter some folks. It doesn't bother me, but I'm sure it will bother some.

    i have the active case now from seidio. it is a good case, great protection, love the holster.

    only thing i would like to see, put a hard plastic arm at the top where the phone goes into the holster. there are 6 arms for the outside hard plastic, one on each corner and 2 in the middle. if you added one top the top it would be MUCH easier to clip it into the hoslter.

    as it is, the rubbery top section drags on the holster clip, sometimes gets bunched up, and its a bit of a pain.

    I agree. I was just thinking this last night. I've always used the Seidio holster with a naked device or with the surface case, and it's real easy to slip the phone into the holster one handed and use the phone itself to push the spring clip open to put the phone in the holster. With this one, I actually have to use two hands or make sure I open the clip before inserting the phone.

    Wow! I finally read this whole thread!

    I ordered the TPU matte black case yesterday but now I'm reading that it is quite slippy, but does it at least provide more grip than the naked phone?

    I wanted to order one of the leather Sena pouches but they e-mailed me and said the ones they have are stiched too tightly and don't know when they will be getting more in. They now have these ugly cases with a red "racing stripe" down the right side, ugh.

    Does anyone else know of pouches similar to the one below?

    Funny that they said they were stitched too tightly. I finally broke down and returned mine, for just that reason.

    Back to my TPU rev 2 case, still pondering a cruzer lite or the Mercury case. Anyone have the Mercury case yet?

    I was trying to add it to my cart and it wasn't working so I e-mailed them, that's when they said they are too tight. How hard can it be to find a pouch?!

    I have both the matte black and gloss black Diztronic rev. 3 cases. Both will give you a better grip on the phone, but gloss one provides far more grip than the matte one.

    I like the way the matte one looks, but I keep the gloss on my phone.

    The holsters are different. The active holster is larger. The phone with surface case will of course fit in the active holster (with a little wiggle but will probably be fine), but not the other way around.

    I have both as well and agree with you. The Ditztronic case is in my opinion just a bit better grip than the naked phone, but the Cruzer lite is glossy and is much less slippery than either the naked phone or the Ditztronic case.

    So what was the consensus on which holsters work with the cruzerlite and the Diztronic? I have the Diz and would like to grab a holster to use with it. Verizon owes me a case. Do they carry any holsters or cases with holsters that will work with the Diz or the Cruzer? It seems like somebody mentioned that Verizon carried a holster that works. Thanks for the help guys!
