i did not have very good luck with the seido cases. i found that the spring clip was not sturdy enough and eventually failed.

The polymer skin adds extra height and width to the device. Holsters designed for skinned devices provide those very height and width clearances. Standard issue holsters do not. Awesome! I had a few questions about this case, namely:

1. Does the swivel clip have a sleeper magnet?
2. Is the clip the improved clip listed here:

8700C/R COMBO (PREMIUM SKIN CASE/SWIVEL CLIP SKINNED HOLSTER)

3. Will this case fit an 8700c w/ extended battery door? If not, is such a case planned?

good catch, but i was referring to the skinned holster. i have the skin and holster so i dont see how a color change would prevent the standard skinned holster from working in the new color.

So far I am not impressed with this company. I ordered my skin over a month ago (order#45770) and it may have been dropped in another mailbox slot by our great Cdn Postal Workers. Communications with the Seidio sales org yields no responses. I had to buy another skin on ebay which cost me $11.90 including S&H to Cda. which was a whole lot less than the $29 they charged me. I recommned you shop around.

Three seperate departments, three seperate answers...Hmm...

Sorry about the confusion. There is no allowance made for the extended battery to fit with any skin currently being offered.. Our current skins will only work with standard sized batteries. Addressing other questions, the holsters that we have available for all the 8700 series are the most updated and do all offer sleep functions. The 8700C/R skin has been finalized and we are waiting for an order that meets our specs. As far as other colors, that is still being considered and will be evaluated based upon how many inquiries we get for off colored skins.
