Convoy S2 holster options?

I ordered an S2+ to use at work. Is there a belt holster that doesn’t need a top flap that holds it securely? Like how Fenix and maglite holsters work?

I see the one convoy offers but I don’t need an extra battery in it making it wider. Ideally just a stretchy nylon one would be ideal if it holds securely.

Interested in this too. Maybe even a kydex holster?

I’d prefer something that’s a bit flexible but it holds it tight. But hey that might be an option as well.

I’m a machine operator in a food production plant.

I carry a Leatherman Charge +. The holster that came with it has an elastic “slot” on the side. It wasn’t quite big enough, so I stitched some nylon mesh in. The Leatherman holster now pulls fouble duty.

I haven’t seen anything like what you’re looking for on the market yet. Just a stretchy, grippy slot with a belt loop. It would be nice to have enough stiffness to make use of the pocket clip, too.

My fenix and nitecore flashlights I purchased years ago came with nylon holsters. Unfortunately I didn’t keep it for my PD35. I’d have just used that light but I need a high CRI when dealing with the food. If I have too I can try the convoy holster. I’m kind of waiting to see if they release a brighter version with the 21700 batteries that rival the s11 but slimmer.

So you need something like that ? I could recommend it to you because I have and use it. But it’s not available anywhere.

Yup. Just like that if possible. Just need it tight enough so it doesn’t fall out. The length does have to be close so it’s easy to remove it from the holster. Sorry for being picky. A lot of times everything is soaked when I’m using the lights with a lot of water during cleaning.

Was gonna ask (being that you mentioned it) why not a holster from a Minimag?

Should be thinner than an S2, so should fit nice and grippy, no?

I picked up one like Chatika vas Paus linked from Battery Junction. They have several styles to choose from there.

I noticed that one guy in my country has several for sale. I think I’ll buy a few.

I don’t have one that I can check unfortunately. Anyone have one to check? I don’t know what the diameter difference is and my S2 hasn’t arrived yet.

My favorite holsters for S2’s came with $6.99 Utorch SF-01’s. . I cut the flaps off. They’re plenty snug. I can’t find one right now. They’re similar to the Astrolux one 4492011 posted. The Convoy holster is unnecessarily bulky and the battery holder doesn’t work without alteration.
