    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.

        Have this battery holder in your shirt pocket is handy to change out your used battery from the camera to the fully charged battery. Then putting used battery in the holster for safe keeping. Which is better than messing with the photo- pack as you can miss that one shot you been waiting all day for.

        Just enough room for a camera battery. Probably not for four AA batteries.

          Comments about OP/TECH USA Battery Holster (Black):

          I bought three of these for holding spare batteries in three cameras: Olympus OMD, Nikon D5200 and Fuji X20. It is able to hold two Fuji X20 batteries.

          The battery holster is soft and lightweight, but is a also protective for your spare battery. I am not sure it is waterproof, though. So I would not leave my spare battery in during rain.

          The velcro on the case is pretty strong so you don't need to worry about your battery falling off. It does not interfere with the comfort of your camera strap.

              Have one on each of my camera straps (2)
              Makes it easy to acess battery when camera battery goes down. No fishing around in camera bag or pockets, saves precious time.

                      I have a Sony SLT-A77 and the batteries fit nice and snug. However, the holder slides all the way down the strap. Even though there is velco, it does not seem to stay in place.

                          I bought this because many of the events I go to I either go to in costume, or my pockets are so full of other things (assuming I have pockets) that there is little room if any for holding my battery. Then of course having to stop and dig through my pockets for my spare battery is not fun either.

                          I just slide this holster onto my neck-strap, place my spare battery in it and I am good to go. Finally, a means by which I can have fast and easy access to my spare camera batter, anytime, anywhere.

                            Excellent storage for a Pentax D-LI109 camera battery! Furnishes protection to keep contacts from shorting, the size is nearly a perfect fit, and provides easy access to the battery when needing to change with one in the camera. Velcro closing easy to use. The holster does not add a substantial weight to the camera bag. So good I ordered a second one for my second spare battery.

                                Comments about OP/TECH USA Battery Holster (Black):

                                I have one on every camera with a spare battery and sometimes an extra SD card. I'd be lost without this handy, well-made convenience. When the camera says "battery exhausted", I'm ready with the replacement.
