Leather holsters for Convoy L2, C8 and L6

Convoy L2

Convoy C8

The “cup” where the head of the C8 goes is wet molded leather. You can watch me wet molding leather in the beginning of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhkKKbn0Kg4 It’s a different item but the process is the same. I think it is needless to say, but the holster will fit other manufacturers flashlights with the same dimensions of Convoy C8 such as TrustFire C8, Warsun C8, UltraFire C8, FandyFire C8, SingFire C8 etc.

For price, more info and more pictures you can visit my etsy shop at:

Hey mate they look awesome a bit out of my price range but good work on the design! I really like the C8 holster.

Hey buddy! Glad you like it. Sorry for the price but the cost of material, time and effort invested in making one of these won’t justify lower price. Sad

They both look cool! Nice work. The price seems fair to me. Handwork doesn’t come cheap.

You’re welcome. I’ve got a sizeable piece of leather that’s going toward belts and knife sheaths. It’s always good to see new designs and techniques. Thanks for sharing.

I think this thread should be moved to the Commercial Sellers' Spot.

Here are directions how:

Yep, it’s like finding a real cabinet-maker who’d make you a cabinet out of real wood and nails/screws, instead of cheap crappy compressed-sawdust planks and glue.

Just went to your Etsy page. Nice holsters. Very simple design, but it does the trick. If I can stop buying lights for a minute, I’d be able to get one

never fear shadows…it means a light shines nearby

What? No Convoy L6 love? Make some for the Convoy L6! There aren’t many options out there for it. Very sharp looking holsters BTW! Great job!

BTW, I think you’ll have some hot sellers if you made some for the Astrolux MF-01 and Olight x7 Marauder!

Any plans to make a holster for the Q8?

Thanks! Smile

Sorry my friend but… no. Sad At least not for now. The reason is that I don’t have Q8 so I can take measurements to make a template, test fitting etc. etc. Now I’m prototyping more affordable holster for the C8. I’ll post pictures when I’m ready.

PS
By “more affordable” I mean half the price of the one that I currently sell.
