The OP/TECH USA Battery Holster keeps you shooting when a battery dies. This convenient, American-made holster can hold a standard-size DSLR battery, 3 AA batteries, or others of similar dimensions. It is not designed to accommodate larger pro DSLR batteries, such as the Nikon EN-EL18a. A hook and loop closure ensures that your power source stays put until it's needed. And what makes the holster great is the fact that it easily slides onto a camera strap or belt for quick retrieval when you need power immediately.

I just received my battery holsters, they match ideally what I was looking for.
The purchased pouches physically measure 3-3/16" x 2-7/16" x 1". They are well made of single-stitch neoprene. The entire backside of the pouch is pile velcro. There is a loop on the back/velcro side for attachment to camera slings or even belts. The loop is hook velcroed on inner surface. Since it is velcroed, any portion of the loop that is not taken up by a strap can be velcroed down to customize the loop to the size strap.
It will fit any sling or belt, as I tried it on a 1.75" belt and it fit. So if it can fit that, any camera or camera bag sling will be no problem.
There is a small flap that offers good retention. It folds over opposite to what people are used to as the flap secures to the velcro BACK of the pouch. This may not be handy and pose awkward fumbling for some people but I have had no problem. It is fitted in this manner to prevent accidental opening by snagging.
There is sufficient room in the pouch interior for a camera battery. And since the material is neoprene, there is some stretch capability and protection from the elements.
This pouch goes well with the media pouches I've purchased. They are the exact same design except the battery pouch is slightly larger.
Even if you opt not to sling attach it, this little pouch can handily be tossed into a camera bag accessory pouch.
I am aware that this pouch is not for everyone. Any buyer should make an individual decision whether they want or need such an item. For those who do, you will not be disappointed in your purchase.

This little holder seems to be well made. However, it is a very tight fit for my D70 battery. To compound the matter, the Velcro closure is on the bottom side (same side as the loop). Perhaps this was designed to prevent accidental opening of the flap. This feature makes it very difficult to open the flap. In addition, the loop and the loop side of the holder have Velcro which makes it difficult to feed the loop onto even a narrow belt. I feel that this unit is not worth the price.

        I have used an earlier version for years. These new ones have wider velcro to better secure them to a camera strap so they don't flop around. I have 1 on each side of my camera strap so I always have a spare battery & memory card handy.

            easiest way to carry spare batteries. Put them on your belt, or slide them on your camera strap. Always carry spare batteries for that important shot.

                  I bought this to hold my D3 and D4s batteries but there is no way they will fit unless cut in half. For larger batteries like these, this product simply will not work, It would have been nice if there was something in the product description with a similar warning. Not B&H's fault, but not anywhere near Op/Tech's normally high standards.

                  I like very much the concept of the product and it seems to be made very well. My only issue with it is my Nikon "Standard SLR Battery" is very hard to get into the Holster. I am hoping that over time it will stretch enough to make it easier to insert the battery.

                    A battery holster doesn't have to be big, BUT, this one is really small and has to be stretched tight to fit the battery(Canon LP-E6) Great for smaller batteries but not suited for larger ones.

                          This is made to fit small skinny straps so if you have the strap that came with the camera this wont work. Also its a really tight fit.

                              It's big enough to hold my spare battery, and the quality seems fine. However, the fixed loop means I would have to take my camera sling apart to put it on and take it off. Since I don't really want to leave it on at all times, this is a deal breaker. If you want to put on your sling or strap and just leave it forever, I'm sure this pouch would work fine.

                                This little holder seems to be well made. However, it is a very tight fit for my D70 battery. To compound the matter, the Velcro closure is on the bottom side (same side as the loop). Perhaps this was designed to prevent accidental opening of the flap. This feature makes it very difficult to open the flap. In addition, the loop and the loop side of the holder have Velcro which makes it difficult to feed the loop onto even a narrow belt. I feel that this unit is not worth the price.
