    I think that between the two, the Commuter is better in terms of protection and style.
    You want the best in terms of protection? Go for the Defender...

    Thanks for the feedback. Will the 9700 with the Otterbox Impact fit into the oem or 9000 leather holster?

    Sure it will. The Commuter Case fits very well on the Bold 9700 OEM Leather Holster (there's a thread here where a guy post the pictures of his Commuter Case inside his OEM Leather Holster). From the looks of it, the commuter is a little thicker than the Impact, so it is safe to assume that it will, as well.

    I just got the Commuter a few days ago and it's great. Doesn't really bulk it up. I'll also be getting the Defender series when it's available for work. I had it for my 8310. It's bulky but I never worried about dropping it.

    Thanks! I've seen pics in these threads of the commuter in a bb oem olster but from what I saw from the pics, the 9700 with commuter was always being put into a 9000 (not 9700) oem holster.

    Can anyone confirm if 9700 with Otterboc Impact or Comutter wil fit in 9700 oem leather holster? Or will it only fir in 9000 holster?

    I meant the Bold 9000 OEM Leather Holster. Sorry for the confusion...

    I already have the Commuter Case and it is wonderful. I am planning to order the Defender also, plus maybe the Case-Mate Signature Case & Holster Combo as well (if I have a little extra!).

    If you want ultimate protection, use the defender

    I purchased the commuter for my 9700 and love it. It fits in my stock 9700 holster pretty tightly, but in my tour holster with ease. I like how its a mix of hard and soft cases.

    Thanks. So does the 9700 with an Otterbox commuter fit 'better' in oem tour holster or oem bold 9000 holster? Trying to decide which one to buy as a holster for this set up.

    Yeah... I've been waiting for its release, too. I wonder what's taking Otterbox so long.

    I agree, the commuter is great. If you scroll down in the 9700 forums, you'll see my opinions on the commuter, its under the thread title Otterbox Commuter Case=Best Case Ever. And yes, it does fit in the oem 9700 holster, just tightly.

    It fits very nicely in the OEM 9000 holster. I posted pics in another thread. It fits without being loose or feel like the holster is too big. Don't know about the tour case.

    Does anyone know if a 9700 in an Impact or Commuter case will fit into the side-loading belt holster for a Tour?

    I know, it's a very specific compatibility inquiry, but hopefully someone can chime in in this...

    Or would it be better for me to create a new thread for this question?
