Hi

Looking for a nice belt clip on holster to hold a cell phone, flashlight and leatherman tool.

I have seen the Nite Ize, but would like one that is a little more rugged.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

How big is your cell? If it is tiny, say about the same size as your multitool, and your flash is a shorter one, I'll share my idea. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I carry my Leatherman (with a Pocketwrench behind it) and my Streamlight Twintask L1 in a pistol mag pouch from High Speed Gear, Inc. Velcro and fastex on each lid, it isn't opening, and it is built better than the Pock-itz. They make a three-cell version as well. I went through skdtac.com for mine, and optactical.com carries them. I think lightfighter.com might as well, but forget trying to order from HSGI directly.

That being said, it LOOKS like a pistol magazine pouch to anyone who has a clue. If you want something a little softer, and/or your light and cell don't fit, the smaller belt pouches from Maxpedition are very highly thought of.

I use a surplus pistol belt (metal buckles) with a couple of ammo pouches. It's not real convenient, though. I've been looking at
http://podbelt.com/buypod.html
which is similar but has more choices on the holsters. See if that floats your boat.

I am not sure if you are interested in a custom case...not exactly inexpensive, but you can get exactly what you want. The above was made by Richard Dix to fit a Leatherman Wave, SureFire 6P, 2 CR123A batteries, and a Leatherman tool kit.

You could easily ask for a pouch for the phone, leatherman and light. This took some time and was not cheap but it is a very high quality sheath set.

Here is the back side. The three snap on loops are easy on/off and the design allows the whole thing to wrap comfortably around my side.



Because cell phones change so fast I would be tempted to make a sort of generic phone compartment, or set up a platform with a "snap on" cell case that could be remade as you rid yourself of those evil devices.

nice system, but you end up looking like a cop or security guard, that wouldn't work for most <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

This is my CERT kit, not daily wear. But since I always wear a vest this would be covered to avoid the cop or guard syndrome.

I cannot think of a good way to carry a phone, light and leatherman that would not need some sort of cover attire, unless a small leather zip case was used. Again I would have one made custom to have a divider set or band set inside to keep the various bits in place.

My daily belt has a radio, knife, battery case, and leatherman all in separate sheaths or carriers which works but again must be covered with the vest to look "normal".

Check the BBC line of products at www.bagdepot.com

I've bought cell phone, flashlight and mutli-tool holsters from them. Excellent quality and made in the US.

LM,

I bought this nearly 5 years ago from Dix. I am going to guess it was between $100-150, but I cannot remember. It was a modification to his triple offerings so totally custom. His leatherwork is superb and his attention to detail excellent. You can see if you look closely that he has added a stiffner at the base of the surefire so that the light cannot be activated by sitting on a seatbelt bracket or the like. The battery case was totally his design, I was expecting something like a dump pouch but this is really super.

As noted, a belt case like this would be sort of hard to wear daily but I did so for about a year until I moved to a lighter surefire and a Juice. The all-purpose Filson vest as cover.

I did not look through the Dix leather site that I linked above, but give him a call or an email to see if he can do something similar and for the prices.
