Holsters

Does anyone have links to a decent holster that will fit a C8 single 18650 sized torch? I'm trying to find one for my Trustfire F15 and another C8 light. I don't want one that leaves the tail switch exposed and it must cover the head of the light.

I'm also trying to find a good holster for a Mini Maglite (2AA) that goes over the top of the light and fastens without a lot of play or looseness. The stock minimag holster leaves a lot to be desired and I don't want any of my modified minis falling out on me.

TIA for all suggestions!

Johnny *grateful guy* Mac

I've got the one from solarforce for the L2 and it fits the F15 no problem. tailcap sits on bottom. I think I paid $7 when I ordered my L2. I think the uf holsters at dx or manafont fits too,same style.

I ordered this one from DX as well as this one for some smaller lights. I'll let you know how it goes when I get them. Smile

Will an MRV or something comparable fit in it?  Dimensions seems like it would work but you never know.

This one look like f15 could fit, kind of tight with the head up.  http://www.dealextreme.com/feedbacks/browseVideos.dx/sku.29355~id.13628

Thanks okyeung but the camo part is a problem for me.  I'm hoping edc has an mrv or something similar and he can just check and see if and how they fit. 

When I need or want to buy something and I can get it at Manafont--I'll do it in a heartbeat.  They've been very, very good to me over that past year or more.  Fast shipping, great products and so far no mistakes after about a dozen orders.  [knock on wood]

Works for me! I come second to none in my ghetto mod skillz! :bigsmile:

One day I'll get round to getting some black dye and dyeing them properly. Meanwhile, the Sharpie works for me.

Looks good but when it gets soaking wet--whatever you're wearing will have black streaks.

The one they recommend for the MRV is a bit pot-luck. With some the MRV is a very, very tight fit and with some it won't work at all. The 119 holster (which is the one pictured above as coloured in by me) works far better for the MRV and its clones.

The 111 holster might work on a C8 if it is shorter than an MRV - it need only be by 2-5mm shorter. The larger head won't be a problem in that holster if they are anything like the six or so of them that I have.

I dont have a MRV. My TR 1600 fits but I cant do the clip up. I think an mrv would fit as its only slightly bigger than a c8

It's not so bad if you let them dry for a few days before use. I'll stick one in some cold water (we never get warm rain here) for a day or two to see what happens...

 

That's an MRV in there.

I've stuck it in a disposable container full of water - I'll leave it there for a couple of days to see what happens.

I don't actually know what the result will be - we'll see in a day or two.

Should be just fine. Once the thinner dries out of the Sharpie ink it will never bleed or run. Your holster is black for good. Although it may fade some, it will never rub off on you or your clothes.

Oil based dyes, like used in many leathers, can and do bleed quite often. I've had many an unlined leather glove that made my hands black when sweat made the dye bleed. I have to laugh when I see shaven headed guys like myself buying unlined black leather do-rags to wear on their motorcycles. I can only imagine what their scalps will look like the first time they sweat badly in it on a hot day. LOL.

Hi fishinfool, 

It's Don's idea with the black marker.  Tongue out

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! I think I'll wait to see how the one I ordered from DX fits before I buy others but if I do I think I'll be getting the 119 Camo pouch like Don suggested and color it black. I actually like the olive trim on it as it looks military yet sharp and it matches my olive paracord I have and use on my stuff.

Once I get the one I ordered from DX I will report on it and give some pics.

I have several of the DX holsters (in different sizes) as shown by Don and they are all great and cheap.

Cheap quality is good - Expensive crap isn´t

Ok guys.....you win.    I guess the black marker does work.  I do like how the MRV fits in it almost perfectly but it would be nice if it was already all black.  Thanks anyway guys.

I like the Nite Ize stretch holster for just about anything L2 sized and up. It has a great clip that allows for 360 degree swivel and locks onto a belt like a starving gator.

There is a black version of it available - the bigger dealers just seem to think we all want camo finish.

Thanks Don but since I haven't ordered anything from any of those vendors, I'm kinda hesitant after getting screwed by DB.  From here on out I'm gonna stick with Manafont, Kaidomain and DX.  Even stuff I ordered from different vendors on ebay has been without problems.  [knock on wood]
