Default Which clip for the Fortte Case?

Please Login to Remove!

I am starting to become really interested in the new all leather version of the Fortte Case ("Blackberry 8700r, 8700c, 8700g STi Vertical Pouch for Slim Battery PDA Case"). There are 5 clip/belt loop options (plus the option of no clip): http://www.fortte.com/scr/showproduc...pe=0&language=
A number of you have ordered this case. Any thoughts or recommendations?
Thanks in advance!

I recently ordered the horizontal pouch with the ratchet. Let me say that I was totally disapointed with it and am already returning it.
The problem is how far the case will actually hang out from the body. It is like having an extra limb. The clip is fairly flush. Howver, the ratchet is not.It ratchet connects to the case which too has a clip that is a little long.

Put it this way. They clip made my BB a target for smashing it into just about anything that I walked near.
Exchaning it for a fixed clip.

I have to agree with this. It just sticks out way to far. I am wating for their slim line clip.

Very much appreciate the feedback on the ratchet. I was considering exactly that clip but no more.
They charge $10.00 for the heavy duty clip. I wonder what that is about (i.e. what's the big advantage over the $4.00 fixed clip.)
