    Pretty nice! I also am considering story leather even when is precie... I hadn't thought about a horizontal holster but for the particular shape of the phone I think it is a better option... where do you live and how much did it cost if you don't mind asking? It is customized I am guessing... thanks!

    Would have loved to have an oem but got this one from story leather

    Thanks for the reply.

    Shame about not being able to see the LED as otherwise it looks a very nice piece of kit.

    Details about PDair Leather Vertical Pouch Case for BlackBerry Passport in Cover With Clip
    I ordered one Nov 6th and I realized it's coming via registered mail delivery to Canada so we'll see how long it'll take!

    Thanks for the info... I don't know, it just feels wrong to pay 100usd for a phone case, even when they are very well made... 50-60usd could be a better price point... still, I am considering it...

    Is this the Pdair?
    On closer inspection. that belt clip is pretty high up to the top.
    Which means it will sit low. Maybe a problem for sitting or movement?

    Yes PDAir. And yes it does sit low and cause me issues. Tried to place it on the hip which solves one problem but creates another - my trousers pockets are on the side and this hinders access to those !

    There now seems to be a PDair case with a cut out at the top which may make the LED partially visible if it is flashing.

    described by the seller as the Version3

    Blackberry Passport Leather Case: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...OnygQead-nGQOw

    Certainly looks like it may be easier to pull the phone out from this one that the other PDair cases I have seen.

    Pulled the trigger so will report back.

    I hope that PDair version 3 is also put on the belt clip model.

    Yeah, I went for the version 3 as it looks as though it will be easier to get the phone out of the Pouch and also the LED may be partially visible.

    The original PDair Pouch looked great, but seemed to be a little impractical to me in terms of getting a grip on the phone to extract it and also completely covered the LED.

    Sure that one with a Belt Clip will appear soon.

    Mine has now shipped but is on the way to the UK from Hong Kong so may take a few days to arrive.

    Yes similar. There are two options: vertical sliding in and horizontal sliding in.

    The one I got is a side holster. Again cb peeps Highly recommended. The quality is superb. Some companies use cheap manufacturing items but this company does not. Even the smallest details like the inside seams of the edges are totally smooth. The leather is ultra high quality and has a smooth soft water resistant coating. The stitching is totally uniform and the quality is evident all around. Although with dollar exchange and shipping it may run up to 100$ but totally worth it. The sleeper magnet also is a godsend and really does help conserve batt life during normal usage.
    Im always leary of leather goods coming out of China as the quality is never there with the low end after market cell accessories. This company completely exceeded my expectations and I was totally surprised how high quality the case is. Also as a new customer they also send me a leather company key chain so that was a nice surprise.
    I wish retailers would get a move on it and start carrying this companies products.

    Also their customer service seems to be very nice, answer question pretty fast... I am looking at the sleeve pouch version 3 but I needed with belt holster, they are looking to add it... the other thing would be the case to fit the phone with a hard shell on, which I feel should be pretty easy since the hs is pretty slim

    Unfortunately premium products like these are at a premium and if available from a foreign country I see the 100$ as a no big deal!cant chance drop damage for such an expensive product!

    It's a small investment but yes I do realize it's expensive! I ordered both a side holster case (PDAir) and a book type flip case (Tetded). Both were quite impressive in its style,build, leather type and finish. I was surprised that BlackBerry did not contract out these companies to design and make cases for the BlackBerry company!

    Sidenote: it would have been really nice to have a protective option same time as launch.

    I agree, if you want quality you have to pay extra, especially if it is well made... I hate when you save money to get something cheaper but then you are not entirely satisfied with the quality or finish... my wife disagrees but I think it worth the money... I am still looking around for the one I want and need: well made leather pouch/sleeve with belt clip that fits the phone with the hard shell on... since it's so specific I may need to go custom-made... I am between story leather and noreve (another awesome company), but so far I am not sure if the former customize cases... pdair is the other option but the version 3 sleeve doesn't come yet with a belt clip and apparently it won't fit the hard shell on...

    Just received my PDair in the mail. Came from Hong Kong in a nice box, like the Passport Smartphone.
    It is a great piece of leather, well made. That clip is not easy to get on the belt, still new. It's not going anywhere soon.
    But, the problem now is where will that stay on my belt? Actually, the best place is right behind the hip, just past the halfway mark around the torso. That makes ok for desk sitting and for walking. If you put it at midway or before the midway point, you cannot easily get into your pants pocket.
    The other place (where I had ofter put my Bolds in the past in a belt clip holster is inside the pocket. Yes, inside the pocket with the clip on the pocket rim, outside the pocket.
    Well made though, that is for sure. that gave me a lot of security in the past with the ((00 and 9700 I used to have.

    The Passport fits inside the leather pouch well, snug, but only if the Passport is naked. Hold it upside down and the phone does not fall out, even if shaken a bit.
    With the OEM hard case on the phone, it fits really tight! Not impossible to get in, but is an effort to remove to answer a call. Will it give in time if I keep it there? Don't know right now, only time will tell.

    Overall, well constructed. Nice presentation box, you feel like your getting a high quality item. The fit is very good and will definitely last a long time.Passport Holster-img_pdair6.jpg

    I purchased a horizontal side case by PDAIR and a flip case book style from Tetded.

    Both have sleeper function, and are made very well,and worth the cost.

    My choices were quite simply. I wanted a book style leather case with sleeper function better quality than the oem BlackBerry passport case available. Using an adhesive is cheap. The book style case from Tetded is beautiful.
    The second choice was a side holster with belt clip from the PDAIR. I wanted a side carrying solution for when I need my hands free. I also wanted a solution that would accommodate a plastic or tpu gel case for a hip holster solution.

    I have received both from their companies and am pleased with the quality. The tetded dijon ii case although fits snugly did pop off the device with a short drop on a soft floor of about 2 feet so great protection but not as well for major drops. The side holster case fits flush with the device even with the oem hard shell case attached. So if that was dropped the corners would be protected. You decide but both companies products are superb and WELL worth the $$$.

    I use both! I have the tetded folio case installed and use the side holster for hands free usage. It does fit well and will stretch to fit nicely!
