    Anyone got a suggestion for a good case and holster? I had purchased a combination case and holster from a kiosk in a local mall and just yesterday snagged the case while it was holstered at my side and the clamp broke off. It can still be used as a protective case but I can no longer clip it on my belt. Does the Otterbox commuter come with a holster with a clamp? Thank you ahead of time for responses.

    Otterbox defender has belt clip.

    I like it. A bit bulky but protects everything

    OK, thanks to all for the suggestions. I have been fishing all week, prefishing ahead of tomorrow's tournament, so I haven't had time until today (rotten weather) to respond. I read some bad reviews about the Otterbox Defender regarding the Nexus phone, but only the Nexus. Seems the phone can move inside and cause some scratches. I really like a belt clip because if/when I wear a polo type shirt, there is no pocket. It's a minor quandary. I was leaning toward Otterbox commuter. Not quite as rugged as the defender, but a decent case and belt clip nonetheless. Any alternative suggestions?

    Seidio rugged case. It's got an outer shell you can take off if you don't need the protection but still leave you with a thinner inside case

    Since I use the monster 3800 mAh extended battery, I am only able to use the Seidio belt clip/holster. Even though they replace them for free, I have gone through 3 of them, it's getting annoying. Does anybody know of a similar open face belt clip holster that will work with an extended battery?

    Definitely don't get the otterbox defender series. I went through 2 of those and the clips always broke. My husband and I both owned them and 4 cases later. I gave up and moved on.

    Okay, I really think I saw pictures somewhere of a Case-mate Tough Case in a holster made by some other manufacturer, maybe Seidio. But now that I'm getting ready to buy the GNex, I can't find them!

    Does anyone know of a holster that will fit the Tough Case? I consider a phone of this size to be unpocketable, so a holster is a must. And I'd like a case that can accommodate the OEM extended battery, like the Tough.

    Cheers,
