    Call me a hipster, but I wear "fitted" denim. Left pocket is reserved for phone/wallet. Right pocket for the key(s). I don't like putting things in my back pockets, so carrying spare batteries was always cumbersome.

    Enter this leather battery case.

    Hold two batteries and two SD cards. Belt loop on the back.

    Really nice...and I'm not a hipster, just like nice things.
    Where from or make it yourself?

    Yes, I agree with LoneTreeBeer, and I would like to buy one also.

    Maybe you could get it Tie-Dyed for the real hippy look?

    I wont show my two cloth battery cases. Definitely from 70s!
    Bought on my travels in Asia for almost nothing. Certainly less than £€$5 the pair!

    It would explain the strategically placed thumb in the OP's picture.

    That's it!

    Sorry, I work 7am-7pm working with patients all day and had beach volleyball in the evening. But Zaid is the source. The product is nice, but the delivery was slow. It took 2x as long as he said just to get it shipped out. Zaid said 2 weeks, it was a little over 4 by the time he actually shipped it out. His communication was good at first, but it dwindled after that. I assume it has something to do with his increased workload. I think his primary advertisement is on Instagram and his business "boomed" so quickly that he could not keep up with orders.

    He also got my order wrong as I ordered a single and dual case, but he sent me two duals. I just e-mailed him and replied quickly (less than an hour) saying that he would ship out the correct item and I could keep the (wrong) item that I received.

    :rolleyes:

    I wonder if he would do a group buy discount? Those things are cool.

    I suppose if he can't keep up with demand that might not be a priority for him. :)

    Success can destroy a business just as quickly as lack of success. He clearly doesn't want to tell people "it will take six weeks" when they order, but he clearly needs to start doing so :).

    From previous posts you can see that "longer than expected" delivery times are not a new issue :).

    Great work, though.
