Great idea, blueskies. Might have to do something like that myself for my non-lycra rides.
Thanks, hiljentaa. I know what you mean and I see this as an alternative to more serious riders who already have gear and methods to handle stuff like this. This is a great solution for a more casual ride.
looks like someone else is on the bandwagon

That's just cheesy and shameless! I need to get a pic of my JB that came in yesterday. All that's in it now is my Zebralight, Burt's Bees with a paracord button knot to keep it up, and a Bullet pen.
Showed it to a coworker, looked impressed so he got one of my cards, so perhaps a new customer as well
The contents of the kit speak for the sheath. That's the "beginners kit". And the flashlight wouldn't last too long in the tube like that. Dang, every time I like something, bicycles, beards, music, beer, Skinths etc... they have to go and bastardize it, re process it,and regurgitate it to the masses. Then I feel like the hipsters I make fun of, because I think... "I was in to that before it was cool". Eric is OG. Sheeee, he even has a Skinth named OG! Man, this irritates me. maybe if t looked like a half way competent kit and sheath, but yechhh! Ok, I have to go to bed now. Working 12 hour days since Sandy, 7 days a week. Tired and irritable ... stupid tommy bahama
I'd still rather have a Skinth. You know, for the sex appeal.
My first Skinth I ever designed was the OG hence it's name.
I'd say about 50% of the normal line up is a deviation of the OG. Even the Catch All in all it's fatty glory has its roots in the "three part" design.
I am slowing moving over to more and more single piece, laser cut designs (like the shields). The Spartans will likely get a revamp, even though they just got a refresher.
The best part about working independently and digitally is that major design changes can be made on the fly. Accommodating mistakes, short comings and little design revisions.
I am extremely happy to have EDCF supporting us.
Having tried to break into the product design field many times before and failed, this a fortunate fresh start!
metro, you have a few things working out for you. Hard work, creativity, always coming up with new and interesting ideas. A lot of us would like to see your business flourish but at the same time having the ability to talk with the manufacturer of a product is very refreshing. We hope you succeed but not to the point where you don't interact with us peons
YEAH! AND ITS MADE IN north AMERICA!
Here's mine, makes pocket digging much easier with a few less things in there. I was really self conscious at first about carrying something on my side but even the wife didn't protest it, so it's a win.
The stuff to the right of the Skinth doesn't go in it, I just really like my 701 with Fisher refill.
Is the front flap, a snap closure?
Velcro. For sure.
Its velcro. Metro was right of course.
Lets see the loadout!
Oh, received my Skinth in the mail a few days back. Been trying to find things to stuff in it since then. So far it has my Swisstool Spirit X, Atwood G5 Prybaby, chapstick as placeholder, STR Ti mini prybar and half the time a pen. Oh and backup key for the powered industrial vehicles at work. Yes, I have some shopping to do. Still finding pockets on the thing!
Would like to open up one of the side tubes so the pen protrudes from the bottom part as well. But don't know "how" without messing it up. Metro: Can I snip the stitches along the bottom of the tube, or is that a bit much?
You can, but I can't guarantee that the bottom hem will stay in place. It's independently hemmed, but again, be careful to only snip the tacking stitches.
Got my Catch All am still working on the load out will post pics when I do. Thanks Eric.
Ordered my Skinth today! Stoked!
Woo! Sorry for not getting back to you, it's been a crazy week and I am answering /shipping in the morning!
