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.

      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 quite a snug fit for my batteries (for a canon6D and 70D) but will provide a well protected way to store them.

          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.

            Stretchy holster that can go on the shoulder strap! Collapses out of the way when not in use--very convenient.

                  My hope was this holder was big enough for a Canon battery. It would be okay for AAA batteries. The belt loop is on the wrong side of the Holster. The loop gets in the way of the Velcro fastener.

                    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.

                      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.

                                  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.
