    This is where I'm headed with the holesters. Plenty of security with light emitting abilities and protection for edges of lenses while carrying. Belt loops on rear unless someone talks me into using tek-loks on them.
    I figure these will be in the $150 range.
    I'm trying to finish up a couple holesters for a nice lady this weekend and I'm waiting on a caimon to arrive then I'll build 10 of these if ya'll want one.

    Hmmm, yes. ;-).
    I'll have a model to show y'all this weekend.
    I have 2 orders to wrap up and then I'll get started on spy and tri orders.

    Good to be back!

    I'm interested in a horizontal holster for the SPY007 and also a TRI-V (if possible without the metal beltclip, prefer beltloop)
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine

    I also prefer leather, believe me! The challenges in building a case for the Tri-v however, required more than I could provide with leather. My 3 criteria in this design were:
    Security of the light.
    Protection for the light with it's multiple edges, corners and lenses.
    Ability to use all 3 emitters while Holestered.

    I needed the case to bend and curve and stay where I put it, so this old leatherworker was forced to use Kydex and you know what? After handling the Kydex Holester with the full leather back and strap, I couldn't be happier.

    That holster looks nice! Any ETA?

    Will that holster fit gunner grip spys as well?

    ETA is first of year.
    It will fit the Tri-V's with the gunners grip but the Spy 007's will have a different build overall. (No trough for the reflector lens and no wrap around build for flood.)
    But, the Spy 07 will fit in the tri-v snugly, there is just extra space where the 2 Tri-V emitters are.

    Ok, leather it shall be. And some mighty fine leathers at that. You all are right, kydex is neat and relatively cheap, but not the right choice for the 007 or Tri-V. I believe Tim said what ya'll were thinking.
    I talked with Data and with his guidance decided that the kydex will be prone to marking/scratching the lights and leather as the only way to go.
    stay tuned........

    Thanks,

    that is good news.. Matt I sent you a pm regarding the holsters... I have been accused of been a AOTH fanatic.

    I'd definitely be in for a non-endangered species leather Spy007 belt holster (leather loop rather than metal clip prefered)...

    I'm looking at some fine calfskins, goat and kangaroo as well as elephant, shark and alligator. The 3 "domestics" are very handsome, not as unique as the exotics, but classy! I like the clean smooth look and rich feel that a quality leather has, and the calf, goat and kangaroo fit that bill.

    Mat, have you considered leather-covered Kydex, to take advantage of the vitues of both?

    Matt, any chance of making some closed holsters with flaps, rather than open holesters, with belt loops?

    I'd personally prefer to be able to easily remove my Spies from the holster if I need to use them, but to keep them 100% protected while I'm walking around with them.

    The scratching is definitely what I was worried about.

    Looking forward to pics of a leather one for the 007!!

    A shark (or calf second choice) Spy007 belt holster sounds like exactly what I've been looking for...
