Default Finding a holster for Otterbox Commuter?

I have been searching ebay for a holster that will fit the Commuter (one than can be put both on screen and back) and while there is none of them making a claim like that, I was wondering if maybe I could try a few cheapo ones that come with other cases and get lucky or if maybe others would try their cheapo one and get lucky. We could all report back if one of them worked or not and maybe eventually we would find a decent holster.

Both my Otterbox cases are still travelling via super slow international mail so I don't yet have an idea of what thickness would be required. So can owners of the Commuter report what thickness of the Note 2 with Commuter on are we talking about?

If anyone already has one not working with the Commuter, can you also give info which one it is? Mr Google told me Seidio holsters don't fit, that is as far as I got till now.

+1. I would be curious also. I had a Defender and hated it , picked up a commuter instead. Much better for my needs. I always wondered why Otter box didnt make a holster for the commuter. I don't always holster my phone but the option would be nice.

What do you think about this one? Not completely cheapo but the look of it seems similar to Commuter to me... http://www.ebay.com/itm/WHITE-BLACK-...item416f966dc2

Apparently the Seidio Active holster fits the Commuter. These guys offered the Commuter and this holster as a package at one time.

It does work no problem with the Incipio dual pro shine case so unless the commuter is quite a bit thicker, it should work too.

Androidcentral.com used to sell the commuter with holster as a package. I'd say it must work. Send them a mail, they'll confirm it.

Just found this...http://www.note2forum.com/forum/gala...html#post13157

A couple posts down the guys says he's tried it himself and it didn't fit. Too bad, the dimensions are pretty close.

Anybody know of a decent clip type holster that will fit the commuter? Summer is around the corner and I can't stand anything in my pockets let alone this bad boy...

Thanks for looking, however I should have specified that I was looking for a clip type holster. They are much more convenient and less bulky.
