Does anyone use/carry the Gerber Center Drive (Plus has scissors and cost more)

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P56HJLX https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P56HJLX

I don't like the leather sheath that came with it... Recommendations?

Requirements: carry the tool and bits in one package.
Preferences: Preferably some other gear (e.g. small flashlight); Molle for both belt and pack carry.

Any experience with these?

Leatherman fan here. I prefer the Wave, plus bit kit and extender, all of which, and more fit, in their supplied pouch.

Skinth Solutions probably makes something that meets requirements.

https://skinthsolutions.com/

But which? No idea.

OMG Ren! That link may have cost me a lot of future income. I love every one of them!

The L Sheath reminded me ...

Does anyone here recall that Doug R. originally offered a very nice sheath for use with the Ritter Mk1?

I had purchased the sheath along with the Mk1 (still carried today without the sheath, though I'd carried the mini for a long time ... until I lost it, sigh). The sheath had a snap closure, and for some reason, after seeing the brand, I decided to purchase the velcro closure version of the very same sheath.

After I got it I was bothered by the loud rrrrip sound associated with opening the velcro sheath.

Soon after that a Police Commander friend of mine told me that cops NEVER use velcro closure for such gear for that very reason. Very hard to nonchalantly/silently access a knife or firearm. Lesson learned.

Back in the dark days before pearl harbor, the military used leather pouches and holsters with stud closures : a secure and very nearly silent solution. Neither snaps nor velcro are an improvement. Another evidence of entropy.

I've known "Metropolicity," the proprietor of Skinth Solutions, on EDCForums for some number of years. My transactions with him have all been first rate, highly recommended.

My Wave+ tends to ride in a kydex belt sheath. I seem to recall buying it on eBay and I like it a lot. For the LM bit kit and extender, I've found the CountyComm Zipper Key Pouch (https://countycomm.com/collections/pouches/products/zipper-key-pouch-by-maratac) to be ideal.

I used to run the LM Molle pouch in your link -- that bag was converted to "100% TSA Safe" before the COVID-19 crisis so I don't use it any more. Rugged as all get out, highly recommended for multitool carry. But I'm not sure you'd find enough room for your bit kit.

No affiliation with any of the above.

Yeah, knew of him & Skinth via EDCForums too.

Also note RAE gear have branched out to making belt sheaths for multitools other than Leatherman. Have one for the Gerber Centre Drive, but no option for a bit kit too.

The one RAE Gear sheath I bought didnít work well for me, and I sold it.

This is my question! I've emailed the site but no response...

Any other ideas?
