Holsters ?

Any suggestions on where to get a holster that will fit the Thorfire S70 (length 254mm, tube dia 35mm, head dia 74mm) ?

I’ve had better luck buying some nylon strap and sewing my own than anything reasonably priced pre-made. Thats easy a relatively cheap way to get an exact fit. I’ve also wet formed leather and done a few kydex. Neither of those are really hard to do but do take a small bit of more work.

You can often find old bags at 2nd hand stores dirt cheap and get nylon straps from.

The S70 on a holster?
I use it with the provided belt, easy to move to the back when needing arm space and to the side when sitting.
I think the head is just too bog to have it comfortably holstered.

I don“t know if the head is to big for it to be comfortable in a holster or not but just fancied trying something different to the shoulder strap it comes with if I could get a suitably sized holster pre-made.

The biggest problem is the tactical ringydingy at the end of the light. The hole in the holster has to be big enough to let the ringydingy through and still hold the light firmly.

If you’re not using the ringydingy then it’s not a problem of course.

I can just take the ring off it is a problem but haven“t been able to find a suitably sized holster anywhere yet.
