The OEM leather case works very well. Flap/lid is held closed with a magnet. The ratcheting clip swivels a bit too easily, but that also lets me easily swivel and lock it 45 degrees to pull out my 8700g or move to a comfortable positon in the car and move it back when I'm done.
My only quibble is that pulling the BB out immdiately after a message arrives, the lid magnet opens the message. If I don't want to read it yet, I have to flip it back to "unopened." The BB is very secure in the holster and doesn't slide out. The felt lining is kind to the BB's finish. Other than that one quibble, no issues.
For $20, you can't go wrong.
