Arrow Wear your OEM 8100 Skin Case in an OEM 7100 Series Leather Holster?

Please Login to Remove!

I have been swamped with questions about the OEM 8100 Leather Holster and the OEM SKINS.

Q: Would the 8100 fit inside the OEM 8100 Leather Holster if it has SKIN on?
A: NO. Sad to say, it does not. The OEM Holster was designed to have a good fit without any accessories attached to it. So I figured that since the size of the 7100 Series Leather Holster is not much of a difference from that of the 8100 (as shown below), I have decided to compare it and show it to you with SKIN on.

I used the Orange SKIN here to show the size difference since it has a better contrast for photo purposes. It really isn't bad at all. The first two photos shows the 8100 with SKIN (I don't have the real phone, so the foam that came with the packaging represents the unit) facing its front and side showing a little gap or space between the flap cover and the top edge portion of the phone.

Left to right: OEM 7100 Series Leather Holster, OEM 8100 Leather Holster

Second set of photos (below), shows the 8100 with SKIN being aligned to touch the flap cover and the gap on the bottom of holster.

So I guess you decide if it is good enough for you because I really could not tell unless I have the real phone itself.

But anyway, besides the Orange SKIN, I have received the Green and the Magenta (which is more like baby pink) today and as promised, to those who have purchased the OEM 8100 Leather Holster from me off of eBay, will get any of the SKINs for $6.99 shipped. Otherwise, I will be selling it at $12.00 SHIPPED!

And just for fun, I thought I'd take a phone of the Pearl White Leather Tote with the Magenta Skin in it. I thought it was sweet!
