Yes! Outside pockets too!! Omg you're gona make me get an OG too?!!
How does skinths ride with fatboys? I suffer from dun-lap you know?lol
Rides great on my 44" belt but I horizontal carry on permanent loops no molle or Velcro I'm old school not interested at all in any of that or the slide on/off pocket clips. I work in and out of so many peices of equipment and in some nasty environments. I've bent pocket clips and lost things, and once you bend it it's just never right again, I don't want my $300+ tools on my hip to come up not there when I need them. Plus horizontal carry just feels natural it goes with the flow of the belt and doesn't hang down or ride up into my gut.
Recieved my skinth today, and I love it. First of all. Samsung S3. Yes, it fits this skinth, but I would suggest you tell eric if you plan to use it for this as if you get buttons they will be required to be slightly higher up on the skinth (Eric feel free to start a convo about this if you want). My skinth has a buckle, and has to be at the largest setting to hold the S3 (Not tried it yet with the phone only the case as I wanted it on my backpack as soon as possible). The bottom of the skinth is pulled tight if you look at the pics below, which could be a problem if I do carry the S3 inside.
The clip is amazing. It holds tight, and was such a hassle to get onto the bag (which is a good thing). I got both clip and molle which is holding on tight to the bag strap. Hopefully the test run tomorrow will go smoothly. Talking of tight, the side tube was tight on a e11, but so much tighter on my nitecore d11.2 (which is a good thing, but only goes in switch down due to a slight taper). (e11 in the pics above)
The pics below show my current carry inside(still not 100%, but Eric liks loadout pics so I rushed to pull this one together) (SAK Alox has been added since that pic)
These are pics of it on the bag. (Excuse the mess on the bag aka id card and keys, they are there ready for the morning) You may be able to see my gloves hooked onto the skinth by the H&K clip. For some reason, imgur (photo hosting site) has flipped this pic.
You didn't get molle, you got the Horizontal straps
I didn't know you wanted it for the S3, the MilkyWay is much taller and made for the S3.
This is the milkyway?
'The Skinth MW
General Options: Horzontal Carry Straps , Flap Closure: Side Release Buckle , Carry Method Options: Stainless Steel Belt Clip , Key Attachment Options: H&K Metal Clip , Colors: Standard Black 1000D'
Oh yah..that IS a MW...looked skinner. Is that an S3 or a Note?!
Its the S3. I have heard about a smaller S3 though. Its defo not a note as it would never fit into my pocket
Weird...how tall is it?!
5 and 1/4 inch without case
That's odd. My sample here at the shop is good to go. I wonder why your flap is short.
Either way, I have no complaints. Fits the strap of the bag 100%
Awesome! My SP is going on the pack when not in use-been alternating though, since I still love belt-carrying my Zombie Skinner!
Skinth is not just a one-time buy though-It's a fashion statement and "feel good" factor.
Pretty soon I'm gona need 7-one for each day of the week.
Then one for each outfit.
Metro-been telling some close friends about Skinth and people at church-and trust me-people are askin
Even though my bro doesn't like the idea of a pouch organizer/phone case, I've been trying to feel out what would work best anyway. That's the thing-for people who EDC MT's and pen/light/other combos it makes the most sense. Luckily for me though, they make great gifts!
Despite not liking the idea of a pouch, he was impressed by the Burg O' Tron! No surprise. I think a classy Skinth is right up his alley
Maybe doesn't have to be with the hard to find material-lol, since ALL Skinths are classy
Oh yeah-and for those of you guys who have relatives or friends who say they have no need for it-the thing is, they don't need it-but that doesn't mean they have no need for it.
My bro kept criticizing me for spending all my money and knives and flashlights and other gear-so what did I do? I bought him a knife.
And my stepdad got him a nice light
And I'm gettin my lady a Skinth
I gotta say-this guy is all class
It's ridiculous how small it is, and looks more of a fashion statement than some tactical accessory. In other words-it's exactly what I'm looking for! I need something I can wear and look good wearing
Just did a quick review of my SP and L-shield in the 'Gear Reviews' section
I clip my Skinth on the shoulder strap of the Fatboy all of the time, it rides great there.
gack! i need to order one of these at some point. only problem is figuring out WHICH ONE. serious, its a big problem.
You're not the only one...
Whatever you do, GET A BELT CLIP.
Been a wicked busy week, these are this week's 'prototypes'
They are production pieces destined for someone's belt, but they count since you've never seen the colours they are made from!
Milky Way in CB with SRB and MOLLE.
Skinth Catch All in Blaze Orange with Horizontal Straps, Outside access pen loops, and Belt Clip.
