Fx tec pouch and other pouchs (no belt clip)


Recommended Posts

I noticed that the pouch provided by fxtec with the phone is tight (difficult to insert the phone and remove it).

I wanted to hear your experience using it. Does it get better after a few days / weeks?

Did you purchase another pouch?

Thanks

PS

There is a separate thread on belt holster (but I would like a pouch without clip). I do not intend to use case. I know there is another thread on this.ย

I am still interested to hear your practical experiences using the fx tec pouch or others!

I gave up on the pouch after a few weeks of use. I found it to be to fiddly trying to get the phone out to answer a call.

Me too... Despite not really a fan of flip-cases, I find that the best available solution. That is UNLESS you want to disable/reduce the edge-interaction. In which case two individual protective parts (like this) might be better.

This is what I currently use. Handmade and anti-vegetarian/vegan pouch.

But without laugh this is my tobacco pouch, wich do the job, tested with lot of sun and 35ยฐC, quite useful when phone call happens. But I hope one day we could find a better system ๐Ÿ˜…

Sorry for bad picture quality, but I am sure it is enough for illustration. I made the pouch my way as I am used to use it for ages. It is a simple improvement of the original pouch. Added strip helps pulling of the phone out and also secures it when it is inside ;-) Easy, comfy, cheap.. PERFECT. Can sell you my know how for 3โ‚ฌ :-D :-D :-D :-D2020-08-06-3430.thumb.jpg.ae813dda5b1dafeb61d35513223fdff3.jpg2020-08-06-3431.thumb.jpg.eca0e80da1d5824193f4e3bdaa1347c2.jpg

Thanks. Yes the strip should have been included on the fxtec original pouch. I had it on previous phones.

Hi all,

I just got a nice phone protector from MediaDevil this week (I found the link here on the forum) : https://mediadevil.com/collections/apple-iphone-7-accessories/products/artisanwallet-wallet-pouch-case?variant=38665797777

I prefer the "wallet" shape to a simple "pouch" because it provides 2 layers of leather on the screen. I don't want to try a drop test but I hope it absorbs more shocks!

The black variant was the only option with "size 4" in stock. Dimensions are good but it's a bit tight to get in/out the phone easily and quickly. I hope the leather will fit better over time...

If @AnyDevil reads this post, I would like to thank you for this awesome "wallet pouch". I still want for a real flip-case with a back plate dedicated to Pro1 and hard leather on the front ๐Ÿ˜‰

The fitBAG does not have a strip and is very soft (not sure how much protection it provides). I like the mediaDevil one.

For the pro2, Fx tec should give the option to purchase a pouch (and then a good quality one); manyย  prefer a case or a flip case. The fxc pouch received with the phone is a bit of waste unless you have good handycraft skills like Swond.

Mine went in the pouch once and never again just too fiddly.

Really does need a flip case.

Same here, it's just not convenient enough for quick access (and certainly not on the go like on public transport). Most of us made a DIY flip case from several cases. xD

I bought three Snakehive cases and completely forgot to order a pouch for myself ย ๐Ÿ˜ฉ.

Really annoying, because six months later I actually still want to try it. It's not even that expensive. I just hate the shipping costs ๐Ÿ˜….

I Just received my order of the Snakehive flip case and pouch today. I only tried the pouch briefly, just to test for fit and I would say that after a bit of use, it'll be the perfect fit. It's a tight fit but not something that you're left struggling with to get out with two hands.

based on this, and if size 4 is a bit tight for quick access,, does anyone want to try the honors and try out any of the other cases/pouches for phones from the Size 5 group ๐Ÿ˜›

we can also look at cases of phones mentioned in Size 4 with the correct camera placements ? ( well, i looked at all from size 4 and we have these three winners)

flip covers or wallet pouch.
