Well like I said if you do not mind the snug fit go for the lg. You can push out the phone from the back until the leather conforms.

Thank you. L fit perfectly. I would say it's on the loose snug side.

Has anyone anywhere reported having used something like this for an YEAR or more? Not a passing usage but as a permanent "EDC"?

I use it seasonally. Usually in the Autumn and winter months where I wear heavier jackets which makes wearing a belt holster annoying.

I've been using LD West Holster with my Note 4 and it has been a life saver. As I have recently relocated to Hong Kong for a job. The LD West Holster is vert practical.

Thanks for this review. I was originally going to go with the LD West as it seemed like it would have gotten to me a bit faster. I'm also using it for a Note 8, and wasn't sure if the LD West had a pouch large enough. The Phonster is not entirely what I pictured in my head, but I'm growing increasingly fond of it. I got the XL pouch, and it feels like I maybe should have gone with L. I plan to use it most days, and assume/hope it'll last a while. Ordered my Phonster X directly from the AGE site on 9/24, shipped from Ukraine 11/3, received in Oakland, CA 11/13.

Thanks again.

And which one is your choice for that now? I am considering using it all year round in a warm tropical country just to not have to worry about having or not having pockets in my outfit.

Are you in the Northern colder parts of the US?

How is it working out through the entire year in a place like HK - wearing with casual and/ or more formal clothing? All the time or skip it certain times etc?

Where are you using it? Location/ weather? and what scenarios / clothing do you wear it in and when you dont?

It is working out pretty good in a place like HK. I wear my LG Holster all the time. As I find it very convient carrying my Note 8. I wear it wearing casual and formal clothing. I use my LD West Holster all the time in HK. Except during the Winter months as I can wear my leather jacket. But I still carry it in my bag so I can put it on when I am in the office.

My contention is having to change where I keep EDC things based on what I wear..
Pants / Jeans / Shorts / Joggers / Yoga pants +
V / U / Henley / T shirts etc / Casual/ Dress shirts +
Bomber / vs Blazer / Sport / Suit Jacket.

Esp when I am wearing T's & Shorts with no pocket or less space, It might make sense to have a DEFAULT "holster" thing to HANG, all the time, year round.
Even if I wear a jacket on TOP or Not.

The "holding / carrying mechanism" stays consistent through the year.. and remains a PHYSICAL MECHANICAL HABIT via Muscle Memory.

I am thinking Phone, Compact Wallet, Power Bank, KeySmart type Key Organizer etc. Place in same place and carry all the time.

Now matter what I wear I'd like to maybe have holster like setup that is my CONSISTENT Go To.

I have just discovered a flaw with the LD West Holster. It seems that the magnets in the clasps interferes with bluetooth headsets. As I have recent gotten a set of RedMi Airdots, I have discovered that sometimes the magnets in the holsters interferes with the bluetooth connection between my Note 8 N950N and my RedMi Airdots.
