    I don't remember which revision I am at now. I modified the design to incorporate ever enlarging phones and different multi tools. Currently I carry: iPhone 8, Galaxy S9 and a Gerber CenterDrive w/ bits.
    All of the Kydex was formed to fit together. The phones are slotted in individual compartments, this is so that there can be compression for each when either one is out. This make sure that they will not fall out.
    I have posted this before, but I have come up with a novel way to solve a problem i had and wanted to share it.
    Problem: the holster is wide so I built in a little flex between the phones and the multi tool bases, I had a lot of failures (cracking and looseness)
    Solution: I thought up an interlocking tube design with a piece of elastic cord through the middle to allow for some play but keep tension.

    Back Side: A piece of kydex is being used to support a crack cause by the previous hinge (you can see the holes for the hinge that used to be there.

    Here you can see the new hinge in action. The interlocking tube has a piece of elastic cord in it to pull everything together.
    In all I am much more trusting in this hinge than any previous versions. I thought that others would appreciate the idea.

    I value first order accessibility over sleek sides. These are all the things in my pockets, the phones, multi tool, utility knife and vaporizer all live on my belt, all the other things are in my pockets.

    Not knocking ya bud but the single phone and Motorola radio I have to remove is enough when I need to throw on a pair of turnouts. All my other goodies lives in a pouch in my cargo pocket and can be removed quickly.
