    I really want a Seidio spring holster for my Maxx but they're not making one right now. I already have a fairly thin silicone type case.

    I have found that on past phones the hostler designed for the Surface case just about fits the same phone with a thin silicone case. So I figure the holster for the Active case must be a bit larger

    The Galaxy S4 phone is slightly smaller than the Maxx (dimensions listed below)

    Here's my idea,

    I could get the Seidio Active holster designed for the S4 (this choice seems the best fit as it is the most uniformly smaller on each side). My thinking is that the holster for the Active case may be big enough to acommodate the Maxx with a thin silicone case (since it is designed to accommodate the larger Active case), then if needed even up take some of the extra room by adding some thin material in the bottom corner of the case until it fits the Maxx.

    So, I need to know how much bigger the Seidio Active case is over the Surface case to give me an idea if that extra size might provide enough room for the Maxx with a thin silicone case to fit in it.

    Maxx (mm) 137.5 x 71.2 x 8.5
    Galaxy S4 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9

    Too convoluted a description or did this make sense?

    1. i had a few Seidio Active cases and i stopped buying them because the exoskeleton clamps would constantly break off. and i take very good care of my phones, am very careful, and never drop them. i now exclusively buy Diztronic TPU cases - better quality/design and a lot cheaper.
    2. holsters/belt clips look really, really cheesy. i just put the phone in my pocket.

    good luck.

    My Seidio holters have always lasted. Like the easy one hand in/out with the spring clip. It seems to take me both hands to slide the phone in the standard type holster - not a pouch.

    Keeping in mind there is no Seidio currently available for the Maxx. - I Figured out my answer.

    Seidio Surface case - 1.mm (near the same as my silicone case
    Seidio Active case - 2.2mm.

    That mean the Active case is roughly 2.4mm (1.2 x 2) larger than the Surface. I'm thinking I can find a Seidio Active holster for a phone that is about 2.4mm smaller than the Maxx to account for the holster being 2.4 mm larger for the active case while I am only using a smaller silicone case.
