IMHO these are the best value for the money and they are EXTREEMELY well made with a simple elegant design. They have a site which is perfect for the PD.
As good as art of the hide and lifters is I have found that when I carry a light holstered I want access to the light and these really do the trick. I have never had any type of failure. They are basically made to order so you may wait.
At a cost of around $20.00 they represent an amazing value for protecting these expensive flashlights.
as you can see these are pretty good looking hunks of leather. The have a system of adjusting the tension making drawing the light as easy or as tough as you like. they are angled for cross draw on either side. this must be specified when ordering.
I never was clear what happened with Matt. I have bought 5 or 6 beautiful pieces from him and then heard he lost interest in flashlight holsters. Really a big loss.
I have to be totally honest here I have a lifters piece and a several art of the hide pieces and between them the art of the hide stuff is somewhat superior. Some may disagree.
In any event the lifters stuff is of a very high quality and he is still making stuff for us where Matt is not.
Sorry to go on so long here I love leather holsters and I am in a constant search for THE best. and what I have posted here is a summery of my experience.
I guess what is important here is how is it going to be used? do you really need a flap? I have a elephant hide flapped holester from Matt and it is great but doesn't offer quick access to the light. this is where the concealco shines is quick access. These lights are tools and the holsters are tools for the tools so to speak.
Also (especially if you want exotic leather) RJ at Wyoming Custom Leather made me some awesome phone holsters. I discussed the subject of flashlights and CPF with him and he gave me the go-ahead to mention him here. Totally custom holsters were received two weeks after I contacted him!
