Thinking of getting one
Does anyone know whether this Un-skinned 8300 holster will work with an 8300 that has a BodyGuardz silicone kit around it already?
I am thinking of getting this holster if and only if it will work with the BodyGuardz skins wrapped around the 8320.

I had the Combo from Seidio for the 8800 and it worked a treat. Well worth getting if you want that sort of holster.
If you want a pouch with out clip try RexRegina's Morgan Pouch. There was a review somewhere...

I bought this same holster for my pearl. It works great and does what it says it should (puts the BB into lock mode upon holstering, etc...) Itís very easy to snap the BB in and out as needed. My only issue - on day 32 (literally) the "locking" function of the swivel clip stopped working. I didnít drop it or yank it in anyway, it just stopped. Since it was after 30 days of purchase date I couldnít get it swapped out for free. However they are sending me a new one (under store warranty ) and I can send back mine and only pay shipping, which I thought was nice.
Overall, 4 thumbs up out of five. However if the clip breaks again so easily I would rate it much lower...
Hope this helps...

I have an almost identical holster but mine says "agf" on the back and I think the model number is ag-a-0139... not sure if that is model number because at the bottom back of the holster it does say RIM 8300.
This holster is awesome! I do have the same problem with the scratch at the very top of my BB where it clips but it is quite minor and could probably be touched up. Perhaps some of that laminate around the hole where the clip fits in would have kept the scratches off but otherwise it is pretty much a great deal. My holster is really almost identical to the one featured in this thread.
I got mine at AT&T store.
I think it was $19.95
Very handy and I can get my BB out instantly with one hand and put it back in just as easily. This is much better in my opinion than the leather holster from BB that I originally purchased and it does lock the BB once it's in the clip.

Personally, I've never had good luck with holsters. I like the design and ease of use, but eventually, you'll lose your device.... and then watch it bounce on the sidewalk. Or, into the drink.. my Dad has lost two this way. Holsters are just plain unreliable IMO.
