Wristlet that will hold iPhone in an Otterbox

I want to buy a wristlet to take on my upcoming Disney vacation and some other shorter trips I have planned. I want to be able to hold ID, a credit card, KTTW, cash, and my iPhone 4 in its Otterbox Defender case.
I have found wristlets that will hold an iPhone without a case, but I really don't want to take mine out of the Otterbox. DD bought a Vera Bradley wristlet and it's great, but the phone will only fit if it is not in its case. I don't want to spend a fortune so a Dooney and Bourke is out. I saw that Thirty-One has a wristlet, but I'm afraid it may be the same size as the Vera Bradley. What else is out there?

Did you look at the Vera Bradley Smartphone wristlet?

It says it holds an I-phone in an otter box. When I bought my DD one for Christmas - the store owner actually put her iphone/otterbox in one - so I KNOW that it will fit. (My DD doesn't have a otterbox, she has a different kind of case.)

My DD "loves, loves, loves" this wristlet. She is a college student - so she uses it all the time, since she literally cannot leave her dorm room without her "swipe card", and personally she can't leave without her phone.

V/B smart phone wristlet

Brighton's twister phone card case holds an iPhone in an otter box. Its not actually a wristlet it has longer detachable straps and a hook that allows it to be attached to something. I really love mine. Could be attached to a wrist strap easily.

I went with the Vera Bradley Lizzy bag instead of the wristlet. It holds my Otterbox phone, chapstick, sunglasses and has a wallet flap in back. It is a cross shoulder bag, and fit into every ride's "bag spot" easily. Not exactly what you asked for, but it was the best option I found.

That's what I have. It carries my credit cards/license, money, Otterbox Defender, nail file, and probably a couple of other things! I use it all the time in my larger bags, so if I'm just going for a sandwich I don't have to lug the whole big one.

You just have to be careful and get one with the flap; the ones that just zip closed are too small.

One like this:

Thanks everyone!
DD has the Vera Bradley All-in-One. I wish we had known about the Smartphone Wristlet before she bought that one. It looks like it may be the one I need. However, some reviews say it will not fit an iPhone 4 with Otterbox Defender and other reviews say it will. Maybe I can find it in a store and try it out.

Before you invest, try it you if you can. I bought a VB smartphone case online and didn't like how my iPhone 4S with otter box commuter case fit. Very tight. I figured it would loosen up but just didn't care for it. A co worker has one with an iPhone and case ( not otter box) and the snap to close is so tight she rarely closes it.

I didn't care for the all in one either. I may go with a dooney but not wristlet it is the barrel with cross body strap but have heard you can Chang it to a wristlet. Did not like the dooney flap wristlet at all. I have a less expensive wristlet the same size and on the small side for me with iPhone and case. Not worth the extra money for that size for me.

Michael Kohrs has an awesome iPhone wristlet! Im not sure if it would accommodate an otterbox, but they are high quality and worth looking at!
